Early Assurance Program

The Early Assurance Program ("EAP") exists to offer outstanding and qualified undergraduate students with firm interests in a career as a Physician Assistant and in attending EVMS, the opportunity to gain early assurance of acceptance into the PA Program at EVMS before beginning their final year of college.

This program exists to serve the interests of participating institutions and the students.  By granting early assurance of acceptance into the program, students will be able to broaden their academic focus, engage in extra-curricular leadership activities, and pursue first hand direct patient care experience that will solidify the foundation upon which the PA Program will further develop and build in preparing the student for a career as a PA.

The program's existence will also serve to perpetuate a continued relationship between participating institutions, augmenting their desire to increase the number of graduates entering post-graduate medical training and furthering EVMS' commitment to the local community and regional influence.
