University of North Carolina at Pembroke

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and worked as a CNA during undergrad before applying to PA school. When considering where I wanted to attend PA school, Methodist had always been a top contender. With it being in close proximity to my hometown, I knew several people who had attended the PA program. Each time I talked with one of them about their experience there, they always spoke highly of the program. On top of this, Methodist appealed to me because of their high PANCE pass rate, small class size, and student diversity.

During my interview experience, I was able to see firsthand a glimpse of why Methodist has such a great reputation and this was when I knew that I wanted to call Methodist home. The welcoming and approachable nature of the faculty and students made my nervousness decrease significantly and I could tell that it was a positive, family-based atmosphere. As a student, I can attest that Methodist fosters a great learning environment and it is apparent that the faculty and staff truly want each student to be successful. I am thankful to have this great educational experience and to be a part of Methodist University’s PA Program.
