North Carolina State University
I grew up in the Triangle area here in North Carolina. I completed a bachelor’s and graduate degree at NC State prior to coming here to Methodist. When making the decision to apply to PA school I had heard nothing but great things about Methodist from other PAs, even ones that weren’t graduates of the program. Looking at their stellar PANCE pass rate and post-graduation employment, I knew this was one of my top choices for PA school. Ultimately, I chose to attend MUPAP because it really felt like the faculty cared about making sure I was getting a proper education to become a healthcare provider. Many of the faculty are also graduates of Methodist themselves, so they know what it’s like to go through the program and know how stressful it can be. The cohort is all very supportive of each other, and every student has unique knowledge or perspectives to offer. Everyone does a good job of keeping each other sane, and we make time to de-stress outside of class. The subject material covered across a dozen classes at a time can seem overwhelming, but the faculty and other students provide a great support system. Overall, I couldn’t imagine attending PA school anywhere else, and I’ve been so blessed to be accepted to such a great program.
