Physician Assistant Information Sessions

Radford University Carilion (RUC) invites those interested in becoming a Physician Assistant (PA), or learning more about the PA profession, to attend one of our Information Sessions. These informal sessions will provide plenty of time for questions and answers, including details about the PA profession, qualifications for our program, our curriculum, and information about RUC as a whole.

These sessions are hosted by Brian Buccola, MS, PA-C, Admissions Committee Chair for the RUC PA program.

PA Information Sessions will be held in Spring of 2023 on the dates below, all on Fridays from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. These will include a Zoom component (see links below), and an in-person component, if conditions allow.

In-person sessions are now planned (barring changes in the pandemic environment). Please use the Zoom registration link to register anyway, and also email Mr. Buccola ( if you will be attending in-person, so that we can keep track of registrants. In-person meetings will be held at RUC, Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital at 101 Elm Avenue, Roanoke, VA, in Room 616.

Note: After registering for Zoom meetings, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting, and you can provide a message for the organizer.
