New Articulation Agreement for Physician Assistant Program
The University has entered into an articulation agreement with Western New England University (WNE). Under the joint agreement, up to four select undergraduate students who successfully complete specific core course requirements at WNE may continue their education in Physician Assistant studies at Salus in a 3+2 degree program of study.
Like the agreement Salus currently has with Brigham Young University Idaho, the WNE students selected for the 3+2 degree program will complete the first three years of a pre-Physician Assistant studies curriculum at WNE - a minimum of 101 semester hours of undergraduate education, including prerequisites. Students must maintain good standing with a GPA of 3.1 or above.
Their final two years will be completed at Salus in the Physician Assistant program. The student is awarded a bachelor's degree by WNE upon the successful completion of their first year at Salus, and a Master of Medical Science (MMS) degree is conferred by Salus at the successful conclusion of the Physician Assistant program curriculum.
