To become a certified PA, you must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE), a computer-based, multiple-choice test comprising 360 questions that assess basic medical and surgical knowledge.
The University of Bridgeport will publish on this page the PANCE results yearly and the for the previous five years in as per accreditation requirements. Our first class will sit for the PANCE in 2013.
To be eligible for PANCE, you must graduate from a program accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) as a Physician Assistant Program or a Surgeon Assistant Program. PA program graduates will be deemed to have graduated from an accredited program if their PA educational program was accredited at the time of their matriculation.
**Even if you have earned a medical degree from another country, you must still graduate from an accredited PA program to take PANCE.
The University of Bridgeport will publish the results of each class scores on the PANCE annually.
