Springfield College Physician Assistant Graduate program is offered in two different tracks.  

Track One: Direct Entry 

The direct entry track begins when a student enters Springfield College as a first-year undergraduate student in the physician assistant studies program. Through our six-year track (pre-professional phase), you’ll enter Springfield College as a first-year student, and in six years, you’ll earn a Bachelor of Science in health science/pre-PA and complete the master’s-level physician assistant program. You’ll enter the professional phase of the program in January of your senior year. The Bachelor of Science in health science/pre-PA is awarded in May of the fourth year. The Master of Science degree is awarded at the conclusion of the physician assistant program.
