Admission requirements

The following are minimum requirements to be considered for entry into the Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) program. Meeting these requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

  • To be considered for admission to MPAS, you must have a minimum of:

    • A four-year Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a health sciences field, from a college or university recognized by the University of Manitoba. Students in their fourth and final year of study may apply.
    • A minimum GPA of 3.0 in the last two full years (60 credit hours) of study. Applicants should be aware that a competitive GPA for the program is 3.5.
    • Undergraduate courses in human anatomy, physiology and biochemistry are required (a minimum three credit hours of each) if they were not taken in the Bachelor’s degree.
    • Microbiology and psychology are asset courses.

    Applicants must complete or register to take the TakeAltus (CASPer) required Situational Judgement Test prior to the January 15 application deadline. For more information, please visit the TakeAltus website.

    Unlike many other graduate studies programs, applicants do not require advisors or supervisors to apply to the program.

    The College of Physician and Surgeons of Manitoba (the Manitoba Physician Assistant regulatory agency) and the Max Rady College of Medicine requires an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 7.0 across all bands for Registration on the Educational Registry. As MPAS students must be eligible for registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba on the Education Registry, the 7.0 scores are required for program acceptance and the Physician Assistant Registry.

    In addition to the admission requirements described here, all applicants must meet the minimum admission and English language proficiency requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
