The overall "PA curriculum" consists of two portions: the
(i.e., pre-physician assistant or pre-professional) phase and
(i.e., professional) phase. The Pre-PA phase is comprised of
the first and second years of the general PA curriculum and
includes the PA program-designated courses AND the courses used to
satisfy Butler's general education core curriculum. The PA phase is
comprised of the third, fourth and fifth years of the general PA
curriculum and includes the courses of the PA program proper.
