Pace University-Lenox Hill Hospital PA Program Information

New York City Campus

The Pace University-Lenox Hill Hospital Physician Assistant (PA)  Program is an intensive 26-month program that prepares you to become a practicing physician assistant - examining patients, ordering diagnostic tests, prescribing medications, and developing  treatment strategies.

  • Excel in a highly competitive and rapidly growing field - Graduates of our program have a  5-year aggregate pass rate on the National Certification Exam (PANCE) for first-time takers that is consistently higher than the national average.
  • Integrated curriculum and innovative advanced degrees - The PA program offers an integrated curriculum that takes a holistic approach to healthcare. Preclinical training exposes students to multiple disciplines simultaneously, so the learning experience is analogous to the manner in which they will practice.

Admissions

Students may apply only through Central Application Services for Physician Assistants (CASPA) at https://paeaonline.org/caspa.

Prerequisites

Students are eligible to apply to the MS degree program if they have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and have met specific requirements set forth by the PA program.

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Pace University-Lenox Hill Hospital Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Pace University.

Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be September 2023. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
