Possible Majors

Pre-physician assistant  is not a major, but a set of courses intended to prepare you for further study in your desired area of medical practice. Our faculty will carefully advise you on courses required for physician assisant program preparation, no matter what your major. Most PPHS students are biology majors, but you could decide to major in chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics or an area in the liberal arts. Because graduate schools value a broad education, we recommend a minor in a non-science area that interests you.
