  • Master of Physician Assistant Science Post-Baccalaureate 

    Applications for the post-baccalaureate option will be reviewed on a space available basis. One of the features of Gannon's Physician Assistant program is that it offers a 5-year master's degree that allows students to enter at the freshman level and complete the Masters in Physician Assistant Science without reapplying upon completion of the bachelor's degree.  The PA program is limited in the number of seats we are able to offer due to limitations set by the accrediting body. 

    Prospective students interested in the post-baccalaureate option should contact the Gannon University Office of Graduate Admissions at for additional information including if there is space, prerequisite coursework and/or application procedures.

Karissa Jones Physician Assistant

"I am an alumni of Gannon University as an undergraduate student and a post-baccalaureate student in the physician assistant program. This program was challenging yet helped me to develop the skills needed to provide my patients with the best quality and compassionate care. The faculty were extremely supportive and always pushed me to help me succeed. I am proud to say that I have attended this program, as it has allowed to me begin a post-graduate emergency medicine program at AHN Saint Vincent in Erie PA where I am furthering my education to become the confident and skilled provider that Gannon knew I could be."
