Application Process

Applying to the Master of Physician Assistant (MPA) program begins with a review of our Admission Requirements, which are detailed in the MPA Admissions Guidelines booklet (pdf).

*The EVMS Supplemental Application can only be finalized once you complete ALL prerequisite courses and have received an official grade for the courses to self-report.  

NOTE: It is best to apply to our program shortly after you have COMPLETED all eight (8) prerequisite courses and have the final grades listed on your transcript.

Early Application does not guarantee an interview or give the application any advantage. All applications will be considered as if they arrived at the same time. 

Healthcare experience for currently held positions will be assumed to continue through March 1st and will be extrapolated by our Application Review Committee.
