Master of Physician Assistant

Traverse City Campus

Grand Valley State University's Physician Assistant Studies Program in Traverse City is fully accredited and is currently accepting applications.

The PAS program is the recipient of a HRSA grant which was awarded to expand the PAS program to Northern Michigan.  The purpose of the grant is to educate individuals who plan to provide health care to the Northern Michigan community.  If invited to an interview, applicants to the Traverse City campus will be required to identify their interests in medically underserved areas and highlight characteristics which would make them successful in this community. Furthermore, in addition to the general admission requirements which include GPA, prerequisite courses, recommendations, GRE, and interview, admission to the Traverse City campus will also include the following considerations: previous/current residence in Northern Michigan, and current/previous connections to or experiences in Northern Michigan.
