ATSU’s Arizona School of Health Sciences’ (ATSU-ASHS) Physician Assistant Studies (PA) program is proud to announce its accreditation-continued status-by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

“Ultimately, it is our PA students and their future patients who will benefit from this accomplishment,” said ATSU-ASHS Dean Randy Danielsen, PhD, PA-C, DFAAPA. “Attaining re-accreditation for the PA program was a team effort, and I would like to acknowledge Dr. Bert Simon and his team, as well as ATSU President Craig Phelps and Dr. Norman Gevitz for their engagement in this successful process.”

Accreditation, which provides an assurance of quality educational preparation for professional licensure and practice, includes evaluation of program processes and outcomes, prospective students, institutional integrity, and dynamic involvement by faculty and staff.

“The ARC-PA’s positive decision is a testament to the quality of our Physician Assistant Studies faculty, staff, students and leadership,” said President Craig Phelps, DO, ‘84. “The program is back on track to become a preeminent national model exemplifying our University’s mission.”

ASHS’ Physician Assistant program has received the maximum accreditation of seven years.
