Learn the skills you need to succeed as a Physician Assistant with a Master of Medical Science (MMSc)
The Ursuline College Physician Assistant Program has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The program is not yet approved by the Higher Learning Commission for accreditation. The Ursuline College Physician Assistant Program anticipates matriculating its first class in January of 2023, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the September 2022 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 cohort of students.
In the event that the program is not awarded provisional accreditation, the program will immediately notify applicants and any seat deposits collected will be returned to the applicants.
