Why Choose Barry University?
"I decided to come to Barry University because I felt the faculty and staff were very personable when I met them during my interview. I also liked the way the curriculum was set up, especially the guaranteed elective rotation and the option of doing a supplemental rotation. I felt that I would have the opportunity to come in contact with a medically and culturally diverse patient population."

"The location of BU PA Program in Miami offered a uniquely diverse community that I knew would be an ideal setting for my medical education. I knew I would be able to learn more in two years from the multiple cultures represented here than in almost any other Program. This, and the fact the Program was very strong and offered a high quality education in a small class setting was why I came to Barry."

"This was the one school that I interviewed at that the faculty didn't quiz me on the current medical insurance crisis. If politicians and people that have been in the medical field for decades can't figure out the solution, what makes anyone think an applicant to PA school would have any groundbreaking insights? Instead I was asked about my family and my hometown first, and then asked what I wanted to do in the future. I actually felt that Barry's faculty genuinely cared about me as a person first. And throughout the couple years that have gone by, I have never been let down by Barry's faculty. They have always had an open door policy and will have a conversation about any concerns I might have. My advisor has been extraordinary in helping lift my confidence about the future and has given me resolve to believe in my abilities. Overall, coming to Barry was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made"
