Pathologists Assistant program
The Pathologists' Assistant program at Wayne State University's Eugene Applebuam College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (WSU CPHS) provides students interested in a healthcare profession a non-patient care option when it comes to practicing healthcare. Students interested in learning more about the pathologists' assistant profession can visit the American Assocaition of Pathologists' Assistants (AAPA) or WSU CPHS website.
There are very few universities that offer pathologists' assistant programs and the prerequisite requirements vary with each program. For all programs, students must earn a bachelor's degre (an allied health or science major is required or recommended by all programs) prior to beginning a pathologists' assistant program. WSU students preparing for Pathologists' Assistant programs who would like to receive the communications, services, and support of the WSU Pre-med and Health Science Center can elect to join our Pre-Path Assist. database. This database assigns students a Pre-Path Assist. attribute code (PPAA) which also allows us to track our pre-PPAA population and to develop support programs that will enhance student success.
