Physician Assistant Program Mission
The mission of the program is to educate diverse, ethical, collaborative and holistic medical providers committed to eliminating health disparities.
Accreditation Provisional Statement
The University of La Verne has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The University of La Verne Physician Assistant Program anticipates matriculating its first class in August 2018, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the March 2018 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation – Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding accreditation-provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
The program will not commence in the event that provisional accreditation is not received.
Students will not enroll in the program if provisional accreditation is not received.
This site will be continually updated as the planning and development of the program commences.
