30 PA programs want to talk to you


This email is a paid announcement being sent as a service to

Physician Assistant Education Association.

Please direct your inquiries to them.

Dear Joyce,

In an ideal world, you’d be able to visit every PA school you were interested in. You’d see the campus, chat with faculty, and get your questions answered.

Well, we have the next best thing: virtual fairs. Not familiar with virtual fairs? They’re a way to connect with programs right from your computer or phone.

You can visit each program’s "room" to have direct access to faculty and staff. Ask questions, get application tips, and find out about admission requirements. You’ll also have access to a CASPA representative so you can get details about the application process. And it’s FREE!

This year we’re offering 4 virtual fairs: April 25, April 26, July 13, and July 14.


Have questions? Email us at events.

About 600 volunteers have already tested the new application and they report that the system is more user friendly and streamlined than ever. Still, the application asks for a comprehensive amount of information in order to effectively evaluate applicants, so get an early start in order to be able to complete the application’s various components and requirements in a timely manner.

Veterinary Medical Career Fair Draws Prospective Veterinarians
An information session on preparing to apply to veterinary medical school.

About 500 prospective veterinarians and guests who wanted to learn more about going to veterinary medical school attended the AAVMC’s 2015 Career Fair in Washington, D.C. in March. Students thronged around display tables staffed by 17 veterinary medical college representatives, including admissions officers and deans, as well as additional tables staffed by representatives of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS), and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

Looking for Clues: The Life of a Veterinary Pathologist
Do you like solving mysteries? If so, the life of a veterinary pathologist may be for you. Veterinary pathologists look for clues to answer medical questions, such as the root cause of mysterious animal deaths. Finding the answers could point to environmental risks or even help prevent the spread of pandemics to the human population. Learn more in this story and video from Veterinary Practice News.
Did You Know? …

The number one reason for a veterinary medical school to deny an application is that the applicant doesn’t meet the specific minimum requirements for that school. To avoid this problem, do your research. Veterinary medical school requirements differ from school to school. Make sure you know all of the different requirements for each of the schools to which you’re applying. If you’re qualified for one school, that doesn’t mean you’re qualified for the others.
