Alderson-Broaddus College Physician Assistant Studies Program holds an accreditation status of Accreditation - Provisional which was awarded at the ARC-PA's September, 2010 Commission meeting.
Accreditation - Provisional is 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.
Accreditation - Provisional is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
Accreditation - Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status.
The Alderson-Broaddus College Physician Assistant Studies Program will undergo its next site visit in June of 2013, with subsequent ARC-PA review in September, 2013.
