The MEDEX application is now open for the 2015/2016 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 applying in the 2015/2016 application cycle, the CASPA applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 PM on October 1st, the final application deadline, for consideration of admission to the classes beginning in spring 2016.

Supplemental Application Deadline Update!!

The final deadline for submitting the MEDEX Supplemental Application is now October 15, 2015. Fill out the supplemental application and submit it to us on or before this extended deadline. We must see that this application is submitted by October 15th before we will review your entire application packet.

Please Note: This deadline extension applies only to the MEDEX Supplemental Application. The CASPA application deadline remains October 1, 2015.

Applicants must have completed their CASPA Application; applicants may submit their MEDEX Supplemental Application as soon as their ten-digit CASPA Identification (ID) number has been assigned. MEDEX will begin the initial screening and file review process only after 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 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
