Accreditation Status

Accreditation Status

ARC-PA Standards‌The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation - Provisional status to the Case Western Reserve University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Case Western Reserve University.

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.

CWRU PA Program applied for and received academic program approval from the State of Ohio Regents' Advisory Committee on Graduate Study (RACGS) on August 4, 2015.
