Professional Accreditation

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) is the national accrediting agency that protects the interests of the public and physician assistant profession by defining the standards for physician assistant education and evaluating physician assistant educational programs within the territorial United States to ensure their compliance with those standards.

Morehouse School of Medicine has applied for Accreditation-Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Morehouse School of Medicine anticipates matriculating its first class in June 2019, pending achieving Accreditation-Provisional status at the September 2018 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding accreditation-provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.

*Prospective students may apply for admissions and participate in the interview process (if selected); however, students will only be allowed to begin matriculation into the Program after Accreditation-Provisional status has been awarded.
