Each applicant must choose one of the sections below from either the Physician Assistant Higher Education Modernization Act of 2017 (HR 1603
) OR the Physician Assistant Education Public Health Initiatives Act of 2017 (HR 1605
) and reflect on the implication and effect the provision could have on PA education. Consider what this legislation passing would mean for PA students, faculty, and/or programs.
Again, we encourage creativity and welcome short video clips and other innovative uses of technology. If creating a video or a technology platform for both the personal statement and response to the legislation, please make a clear distinction between the two parts.

, Section 2: Increasing Loan Limits for Physician Assistant Students Under the Federal Direct Loan Program
, Section 6: Grants to Rural-Serving Institutions of Higher Education for Physician Assistant Education Programs
