Accepted Students Interview Checklist:
Offers of admission are contingent upon the applicant completing all prerequisite course work with satisfactory grades, and remediating any other conditional issues such as insufficient letters of recommendation, transcript submission, or GRE verification.*
A deposit of $1,500 is required to hold an admission seat; it is non-refundable, but is applied to the 1st quarter tuition.*
All health & immunizations documentation must be completed & submitted by July 1, 2019.*
Background checks are done on all students, and are increasingly being required by facilities/offices offering student rotations; negative issues may therefore impact clinical rotation availability, for which the school cannot be held accountable.*
The tentative Orientation dates are: September 13-14, 2019, and attendance is mandatory. You must purchase your medical equipment and scrubs at that time from our preferred vendor for two reasons: 1) to insure equipment quality; 2) the highest discount is available only through an exclusive contract. This will allow you get the caliber of equipment needed for an affordable price.*
Attendance at evening classes and possibly Saturday or Sunday classes may be required.*
In order to be properly prepared, you must devote time to intense study and review of anatomy and physiology prior to the beginning of fall classes.*
You should anticipate that one or more of your clinical rotations will be at a site away from Knoxville. South College includes funds in your loans to help cover these costs. Unfortunately, they do not give you all this money in one lump sum when needed; it is spread out across all 9 loan disbursements. This means you will need to start saving some of that money with every check so that you will have at least $1000 saved up by the start of the clinical year.*
We require every student to earn 50 hours of approved Community Service prior to graduation.*
Students in the Physician Assistant Program are held to the highest level of professional competence, integrity, and personal responsibility. An Honor Code formally recognizes that students must take responsibility for their academic, ethical, and professional behavior. Students shall comply with all of the aspects of this Honor Code as listed in the student handbook.*
I have read the technical requirements as outlined on the “Technical Standards” document and can and will comply with these requirements. Candidates for the Physician Assistant profession must have abilities and skills including observation, communication, motor, conceptual, integrative and quantitative, and behavioral and social. *
