Keorah,

I'm a current PA student learning to practice medicine, and the majority of PA programs in the U.S. require a bachelor's degree to qualify to apply. Most PA programs are 24-30 months in duration, fulltime, and my program is 27 months long. So after getting your high school diploma, it would take about 6~6.5 years of school work to become a certified PA.

Also, feel free to check this link out for the most current information on how to become a PA:

Good luck!
