Accreditation Information Physician Assistant Program

(ARC-PA Standard A3.14a)

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Physician Assistant (PA) Studies Program has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA). The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Physician Assistant Studies Program anticipates matriculating its first class in July 2018, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the March 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. The program will not commence in the event that this provisional accreditation is not received.
