    I recently had my annual review at work and received multiple compliments stating that my medical/clinical knowledge exceeded expectations for what was expected of a recent grad with my level of experience. I truly believe this is a direct reflection of you all and the program you have worked so hard to establish. I wanted to thank you all again for providing me with such a wonderful education and knowledge base. What you all started and continue to expand on with the UCPA program is truly exceptional!

    The UCPA program application was different from any of the other schools to which I applied. They are looking for professionals that know how to interact with patients and have a connection to the community. The faculty takes a genuine interest in each of the students., and you feel a valued part of the program.

    I chose the UC PA program because you would be hard pressed to find as many faculty members who care so much about the success and well-being of their students. The program has not only made me into a great future provider, but has made my dream of making a difference in the lives of others come true.
