Interviews | Physician Assistant Studies

Based on the review of the application by the Admissions Committee, the most competitive applicants are invited for a personal interview. The interview is required and is a strong contributing factor in the admission decision. It allows the Admissions Committee to assess essential skills and factors which may not be reflected in the application. In the interview, consideration is given to candidates’ knowledge of the profession, motivation toward a career as a physician assistant, ability to think clearly and logically, self-confidence, verbal expression of ideas and program compatibility.

We conduct our interviews virtually to be able to assess applicant’s who might not have the ability to travel to Oregon. In order to remain unbiased, we will conduct all interviews virtually via Zoom. We strive to make the experience positive for all applicants and view the interview events as time for applicants to find out what we can offer them in regards to their PA education.
