Application Process

Master of Medical Science - Physician Assistant

Emory University is a participant in CASPA (Centralized Application Service for PAs). To apply to the Emory PA program you must complete the CASPA application as well as a completed Emory Supplemental Application. The deadline for both is October 1, 2017 for the class beginning in August 2018. It is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure that all required material is received and completed by CASPA prior to the deadline. Application material will not be reviewed until all components and fees have been received. Further information on CASPA can be obtained at, or at 240.497.1895. CASPA will open April 2017 for applications to the Emory PA program.

Submit your finished Supplemental application to CASPA when completed and the fee is paid.

The most qualified applicants will be invited for an on-site interview on a first come, first serve basis. Apply early, but not before the minimum required clinical hours are obtained.

Early Priority

Admission to the Emory PA Program is highly competitive.  Our final submission deadline is October 1; however, we very strongly encourage early application since interview days are filled first come - first served  as applications are reviewed. Program acceptance will be offered on a rolling basis.
