The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Florida International University/Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Florida International University/Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be in March 2029. The review date is contingent upon continues compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.

In accordance with ARC-PA Standard A3.12a, the program’s accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC-PA website at
