Physician Assistant Studies
PA Technical Standards
Kettering College physician assistant students must meet the technical standards of Kettering College and the PA program. The standards will be distributed to each applicant selected for an interview; if accepted, the student will be required to sign a statement affirming that they have read, understood, and are able to comply with each of the standards.
Technical standards, as distinguished from academic standards, refer to the physical, cognitive, and behavioral abilities required for satisfactory completion of curriculum. The essential required abilities include motor, sensory, communicative, intellectual, behavioral, and social aspects.
Applicants whose responses indicate that they cannot meet the expectations will be further reviewed by the admissions committee to assess the extent of difficulty and the potential for compensating for such difficulty. The college is committed to providing reasonable accommodation to individuals with disabling conditions.
