Physician Assistant Studies, M.S.


The Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies has applied for accreditation-provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Physician Assistant Studies program anticipates matriculating its first class in October 2024, pending achieving accreditation-provisional status at the June 2024 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 Lenoir-Rhyne PA Program will not commence in the event that provisional accreditation is not received.
