General Science - College of Science



Ariella Wolf, Chief Advisor

The College of Science offers a preparatory program designed to meet most general requirements for admission to many physician assistant schools. Students who complete the four-year pre-physician assistant program earn a BS degree in General Science with a Pre-physician Assistant option. Satisfactory completion of the OSU course work facilitates, but does not guarantee, admission to a physician assistant school; applicants are selected on a competitive basis and extensive clinical experience in a health care setting is required. Students are urged to carefully check admission requirements at their schools of interest and work closely with admission representatives in order to make sure they are meeting all requirements.
