The Howard University Physician Assistant Program has begun the process of applying for Accreditation-Provisional status from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Howard Physician Assistant Program has not yet received accreditation. The Physician Assistant Program plans to enroll its first student cohort for matriculation in Fall 2023, pending receipt of Accreditation-Provisional status at the March 2023 ARC-PA Commission 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.
If the Howard University Physician Assistant Program is not awarded Accreditation-Provisional status, the program will not process any applicants for admission.
