College Science Requirements for Physician Assistant School Students
Physician Assistant College Course Prerequisites
ISP students get a head start on their new careers as a physician assistant and in the health sciences by completing prerequisite college science classes in an accelerated, weekend-based format. ISP is an academically rigorous program enabling college science courses to be completed in one month versus one semester.
Accelerated Pre-Physician Assistant Courses
ISP is a trusted academic program. Students seeking to satisfy college science prerequisites for physician assistant programs enroll in ISP's weekend classes every Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am-6:30pm for four consecutive weekends taking one course at a time. For example, it takes just three months to complete college Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 and college Microbiology.
ISP pre-physician assistant students go on to pursue professional physician assistant programs at colleges and universities regionally and nationally.
Physician Assistant School Transfer Credits
The Integrated Science Program is located at Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU) in Whittier, California. SCU is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
ISP students have transferred to physician assistant programs regionally and nationally. Students are encouraged to contact their physician assistant school of choice before enrolling in ISP to assure credit transferability. The academic counselors at SCU can assist ISP students in their efforts to transfer college course credits, if necessary.
Only Take the Science Classes that You Need
You build your own schedule of classes and enroll just in courses you need to complete your physician assistant requirements. ISP classes do not require prerequisites.
