Surgical Assistant Program Application Process

Candidates must complete the online application, along with a nonrefundable $60 application fee, three letters of recommendation, a personal narrative statement and official transcripts of all college-level coursework. Applications will be accepted between October 1 and May 1. 

The EVMS SA program does not accept applications from practicing/retired physicians due to the fact that there are other pathways for these individuals to enter the surgical assistant profession.

The application review process takes approximately eight weeks. The Program Director will send letters to all applicants indicating the determination of the admissions review committee. The program has a capacity to admit a maximum of 24 students a year.  New classes are admitted in August and students are enrolled for 22 consecutive months.

Official transcripts should be mailed to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment for Health Professions at the address below.  If you experience technical difficulties or related problems in completing your online application, please contact:
