As a medic in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Bragg for over a decade, I had heard about the phenomenal reputation of Methodist University Physician Assistant Program. Physicians I worked with at Womack Army Medical Center would repeatedly say MUPAP students were the “most competent” when performing medical duties during clinical rotations. Over the years, I have observed MUPAP’s commitment to the community and it is a dream come true to be part of the program.

As one of the earliest PA programs established in North Carolina, MUPAP is a well-oiled machine. In addition to having a 100% PANCE pass rate and dedicated cadaver lab, the faculty and staff are top-notch. The admissions process was streamlined, led by an admissions director that exudes efficiency and professionalism. Responses and information were distributed in a timely manner and I always felt prepared for every occasion. At the interview, the faculty and staff created an environment that had a family feel and this transcends the student population, leading to camaraderie and enhanced intraprofessional relationships. The faculty, comprised of top medical professionals, are committed to ensuring that we are the skilled, compassionate providers that every patient deserves.

In my time at Methodist University, I have been fortunate to be surrounded by a diverse student body that truly cares about one another. The collaboration promotes learning and has built what I hope to be life-long friendships. I could not be happier with my decision to attend MUPAP and I look forward to join the ranks of heath care teams in the nearby area.
