The DeSales PA program excels at PANCE preparation, with a near-perfect first-time pass rate since the program began.

PANCE is the only exam given to graduating physician assistants and it must be passed in order to be eligible for licensure in all 50 states.

The DeSales MSPAS is accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Therefore, when you graduate you are eligible to sit for the PANCE (Physician Assistant National Certification Examination).
