Current State Licensing Requirements

Physician Assistants must be licensed by the state in which they work before they can begin practice. Requirements for professional licensure can vary by state and can change without notice. All prospective students should consult the state licensing body in the state in which they reside or seek to be licensed to ensure that the degree they earn will meet requirements for licensure in that state. Students should refer to their state licensing body for further information. The information provided below has been adapted from the information that can also be found on the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) website. The AAPA has also compiled an at a glance document to help you understand statutory and regulatory requirements for initial licensure

Physician Assistants are required to be licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The EVMS Physician Assistant, MPA Program does lead to licensure and does meet the requirements in order to become licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia. EVMS is available to discuss with students or prospective students their respective or prospective degree options. Please contact us at 757-446-7158.
