Information Sessions

The LSUHSC-NO Department of Physician Assistant Studies offers information sessions for individuals who are interested in attending the program.


What to expect: Information sessions are given by the department and are open to the public. These sessions are scheduled two to three times a year; the schedule can be obtained by looking at this website. Attendance at these sessions is not required for admission. The applicant is responsible for knowing program prerequisites and requirements.

Participants learn firsthand about our Master of Physician Assistant Studies from department faculty. A review of the prerequisite courses required for admissions, an admissions process overview and if time permits, a tour of the program, including classrooms and physical examination lab. Occasionally, current students will be on hand to share a glimpse of their life as a PA student.

Participants are encouraged to come prepared by bringing a notebook and pen/pencil. We have found that spending time reviewing the information on our website before coming to an information session is valuable.

We also highly recommend that participants research the physician assistant profession prior to attending a session. We highly recommend these information sites:
