Transfer credit policy

Course work in the Physician Assistant Studies curriculum is lock-step and is quite different from other graduate programs. Work in each semester builds upon work from the previous semester. It is imperative that all students in the Wayne State University Physician Assistant Studies program complete all of the required coursework and do so in the required sequence. No transfer of credit from other programs or institutions will be allowed to fulfill any requirement of the program. Likewise, no advanced standing will be afforded to any individual since all course credits must be completed in order.

This policy will also apply to students requesting transfer from other Physician Assistant program, and no credit will be accepted in lieu of required coursework.

Physician Assistant programs have variations of curriculum and intensity of instruction. Due to these variations, no students will be accepted for transfer into the Wayne State University Physician Assistant Studies for the clinical curriculum (rotations).
