ARC-PA Offering Workshop for New Site Visitors

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) is seeking applications from individuals interested in volunteering their time as ARC-PA site visitors. Site visitors are selected from a pool of PA and physician educators, clinically practicing PAs, and others involved in PA education.

Prospective site visitors must first apply to the ARC-PA and be selected from the pool of applicants. Those selected will be invited to attend an intensive site visitor workshop to learn about the site visit process. Site visitors are appointed for an initial 3-year term and are asked to participate in 2-3 visits per year. Those who continue to serve as visitors after their initial 3-year term must agree to participate in additional site visitor development.

The next new site visitor workshop will be held during the PAEA Education Forum in Minneapolis, October 15-16. The workshop will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 15, and end at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, October 16.

For more information regarding the requirements to apply and the duties of an ARC-PA site visitor, please refer to the official ARC-PA announcement. The deadline for receipt of applications from those interested in participating in the next site visitor workshop is Wednesday, June 1st. The ARC-PA will notify applicants of their application status in mid-August.
