Penn College has opened many doors for me. The staff has become my family and my classmates will forever be in my heart. It was not easy by any means, but with motivation and a drive to make a difference in this world the PA program can be accomplished. Honestly, the best decision I have made in my life. In hindsight it is a short timeline of hard work and perseverance.

The PA program at Penn College is intense and challenging, but with the support of the faculty and my peers it was a goal that was attainable. The small class size and hands on training provided me the experience and confidence necessary to thrive in the Physician Assistant profession. Penn college really does prepare you in all aspects to be a successful practitioner. Deciding to go there was one of the best decisions I ever made!
