Accreditation

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC- PA) has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Florida International University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.

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.
