Overview

The MEDEX application is now closed for the 2014/2015 cycle! All CASPA and MEDEX supplemental applications submitted before the deadline will be reviewed and all applicants will be provided application status by email.

For all applicants planning to apply in 2015/2016 the application cycle opens in May with a final deadline of October 1st for enrollment the following year.

All applicants to MEDEX Northwest are required to complete the MEDEX Supplemental Application on or before the final application deadline of October 1st to be considered for the current admissions cycle. Applicants must have completed their CASPA Application; applicants may submit their MEDEX Supplemental Application as soon as their eleven-digit CASPA Identification (ID) number has been assigned. MEDEX will begin the initial screening and file review process once both the CASPA Application and the MEDEX Supplemental Application have been received.

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 11-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
