* Disclosure: College of St. Joseph’s developing, new Master of Medical Science Physician Assistant Studies (MMScPAS) Program is applying for substantive change approval from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) as well as Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). We anticipate matriculating our first class in June 2016, pending achieving NEASC approval by April 2015 and ARC-PA Accreditation – Provisional status at the March 2016 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation – Provisional is an accreditation status for a new PA Program that, at the time of its initial accreditation review, demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation Standards. Matriculation of students into the MMScPAS program is contingent upon achieving NEASC approval and ARC-PA Accreditation – Provisional.
