As a physician assistant, you’ll help prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses in patients under your care. At CMU, you’ll select a major of your choice while following the pre-physician assistant program of study to prepare for grad school. You’ll want to contact the physician assistant adviser early in your first semester, so you can select an appropriate major and identify prerequisite course work.
