    I think you need to contact the PA schools directly to see about admissions. If you do come over, please stop by Starbucks and show them how to make real Chai! :D

    I am pretty sure that you can apply directly to the MS programs, as long as you have some kind of bachelor's and all of the prereq's. (you don't need a BS in PA studies to get the MS) I remember at my program's orientation our director told us that they have had some students in the past that were physician's in other countries. Go to the AAPA website for more info (aapa.org) and try the physicianassistant.net forum as well. Good luck!
