The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s pre-physician assistant studies program, administered through the Health Professions Advising Center, prepares you to assist physicians and other specialized doctors through classroom experiences that go beyond traditional science and health basics. In addition to specialized knowledge, you choose a minor, which could be in business, science, sociology or a foreign language. You spend class time in professional settings observing and practicing what you’ve learned. Because medical schools don't require a particular academic path, you also can choose your studies from biology, biomedical science, biochemistry, biomedical engineering, chemistry, community wellness, health science or psychology.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley pre-physician assistant studies students have a track record of continuing their education at graduate schools like Butler University, Cleveland State University and Midwestern University.
