The 2017/2018 application cycle is now open! The application deadline for the 2017/2018 application cycle is September 1st, 2017. The CASPA and MEDEX supplemental applications must both be submitted before September 1st, 2017 to meet the application deadline.

Please note: the degree options have changed in Tacoma, with additional changes following in the coming years. All applicants are encouraged to review these changes on the MEDEX website before submitting their applications.

Filling out the supplemental application

First, read the detailed supplemental application instructions.

Review the prerequisites for both the bachelor’s and master’s degree options as well as the Technical Standards document prior to filling out the supplemental application. In order to apply to the MEDEX Northwest Physician Assistant Training Program, you will need to check off that you meet all the prerequisites on this list. No one will be exempt from meeting these minimum standards, regardless of prior training, education, or medical experience.

Each degree option has a separate supplemental application to be submitted electronically: make sure you have selected the appropriate supplemental application and fill in all applicable information completely and accurately. Do not hit the back arrow or navigate away from the supplemental application, as this could reset the form. It is recommended that you complete the essay portion in an external editor (Microsoft Word, for example) and then copy the essays into the application.

Ensure that you have entered your 10-digit CASPA ID number correctly in the space provided; if you submit the supplemental application with an incorrect CASPA ID, the application will not go through the initial screening and file review process. Before submitting the supplemental application:

  • Confirm that you have the correct CASPA ID number
  • Double-check your submission for accuracy and content
  • Print a copy of the supplemental application for your records
