PA program for the 2017-18 academic year.
Mount St. Joseph University has been approved to develop a PA program with initial enrollment proposed for the 2017-18 academic year. The approval was granted by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (http://www.arc-pa.org/provisional_acc/applicant_programs.html).
Mount St. Joseph University has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). MSJ University anticipates matriculating its first class in January 2018, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the March 2017 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation - Provisional is an accreditation status for a new PA program that, at the time of its initial accreditation review, demonstrated its preparedness to inititate a program in accordance with the accreditation standards. In the event that provisional accreditation is not received, the program will not commence in January 2018 and tuition deposits will be refunded.
*The hands-on learning and smaller labs taught by faculty is not HPAC-specific, but Mount specific.
