The Pre-Physician Assistant Concentration prepares students to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), and meet the admissions requirements for physician assistant school. The concentration may be added to any major, but usually is coupled with the Biology Major. This curriculum is based upon the requirements for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Other schools may have additional requirements. Lyon College proficiency and common core courses (ENG 101 & 102, MTH 101, etc.) are not included here even though many schools list them as prerequisites. Some of these courses may have prerequisites not shown. Only one pre-health professions concentration may be declared.



* Students may use BIO 110, CHM 110, PSY 101, PSY 235, SPN 101, and SPN 102 to satisfy core requirements.
