Physician Assistant program granted continued accreditation

Campbell University’s Physician Assistant program is proud to announce the following achievement as provided by the PA program’s accrediting body.

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Campbell University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Campbell University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2034. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.

Betty Lynne W. Johnson, program chair and director, expressed her excitement, “This accreditation reaffirms our commitment to excellence in educating future PAs and serving our community’s healthcare needs.”

Dr. Wes Rich, associate dean for Health Sciences, echoed Johnson’s sentiment, emphasizing the significance of this accreditation for both the program and its students. “Maintaining accreditation at this level is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our faculty, staff, and students. It validates our program’s quality and ensures that our graduates receive the best education possible to thrive in their careers.”
