This is a very exciting time in PA Education and Gardner-Webb’s School of Physician Assistant Studies.  Our faculty and staff have spent considerable time preparing a Christ-Centered program aimed at closing the gap between patient demand and access to care.  Pending accreditation – provisional, our students will spend 16 months in didactic (classroom, small groups, and lab) followed by 12 month of clinical rotations.  


As the Assistant to the Dean, I help Dr. Davenport with the programs day to day operations.  As the Admissions Liaison, I work directly with the GWU graduate admissions office - providing the link between them and the PA program.    


To learn more about our application process, click on one of this link (application requirements) or contact graduate admissions at (local) 704-406-4723, (toll free) 877-498-4723, or e-mail


Note:  Gardner-Webb’s PA program does not grant advanced placement under any circumstances. Students who matriculate into the Physician Assistant program must complete all program requirements.
