Accelerated/Dual Degree Physician Assistant Programs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, physician assistant positions are expected to grow 38% through 2022, a rate well above almost any other profession and double that of medical doctors. Traditionally, these programs take 2-3 years to complete as a graduate student but accelerated dual degree programs allow students to begin their Physician’s Assistant coursework after just three years of undergraduate coursework, shaving off a full year of study. The schools that made College Transitions’ list offer direct entry, dual-degree programs which allow for this accelerated pathway toward this rewarding and lucrative profession.
