Physician Assistant Program

Master of Science, Health Sciences – Physician Assistant (MSHS-PA)

The CDU Physician Assistant Program has applied for Accreditation-Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Physician Assistant Program anticipates matriculating its first class in August 2016, pending achieving 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. In the event that provisional accreditation is not received, the program will not commence.
