ARC-PA Announces Seven New Programs Awarded Provisional Accreditation

At its September 2022 meeting, ARC-PA announced its decision to award seven new entry-level PA programs provisional accreditation. With the addition of these newly accredited programs, the number of PA programs in the US now stands at 300. This remarkable growth is indicative of the dedication of our PA education community—because of the work you do each day, more students now than ever are seeking entry into the PA profession.
