Physician Assistant Program - Orlando

Accreditation

At its March 2014 meeting, the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has placed the Nova Southeastern University – Orlando Physician Assistant program sponsored by Nova Southeastern University – Orlando on Accreditation - Probation until its next validation review in March 2016.

Probation is a temporary status of accreditation limited to two years and conferred when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of a program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened.

Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn.
