About Accelerated Pathways

Elon offers undergraduate students a distinctive Accelerated Pathway to the university’s highly selective Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (PA) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (PT) programs within the School of Health Sciences (SHS). Selected Accelerated Pathway students will complete their undergraduate courses in three and a half years with the opportunity for admission and enrollment into the PA and PT programs in the final semester of their fourth year (January). Students will participate in programming throughout their undergraduate career that is aimed at developing essential skills and fluencies, drawn from a liberal arts education, necessary for success as a healthcare provider.
