Master of Physician Assistant Studies
The Master of Physician Assistant Studies offered at RVU’s Colorado campus holds Accreditation-Probation from The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA). For further information please contact the ARC-PA at 12000 Findley Road, Suite 275, Johns Creek, Georgia, 30097; or (770) 476-1224.
At its March 2021 meeting, ARC-PA placed the Rocky Vista University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Rocky Vista University on Accreditation-Probation status until its next review in March 2023. Probationary status is a temporary accreditation status of not less than two years that is granted, at the sole discretion of the ARC-PA, when a program holding an accreditation status of Accreditation-Provisional or Accreditation-Continued does not, in the judgement of the ARC-PA, meet the Standards or when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened. Once placed on probation, a program that fails to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and is subject to having its accreditation withdrawn. Specific questions regarding the Program and its plans may be directed to the Program Director and/or the appropriate institutional official(s).
