Accreditation Information Physician Assistant Program

(ARC-PA Standard A3.14a)

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Physician Assistant Studies Program sponsored by the University of Nevada, Reno.

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.

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
