How do PAs prepare to enter practice?
Certified PAs are educated at the master’s degree level. Before entering PA school, PAs complete a bachelor’s degree program, and most are required to have prior health care experience with hands-on patient care. PA programs are typically 27 months, and PA students must complete at least 2,000 hours structured clinical education before they graduate.
Certified PAs are required to complete 100 hours of continuing medical education (CME) every two years.
