Mount Union’s program doesn’t just focus on the medical aspect of patient care, but also emphasizes the importance of ethics, integrity and responsibility.
Physician Assistant Studies Program
The Mount Union Physician Assistant Program was granted continuing accreditation from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA), following their September 2011 meeting. The ARC-PA defines continuing accreditation as: “…the term used to describe accreditation that is granted when an established program is in compliance with the 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 next accreditation review for the University of Mount Union Physician Assistant Studies Program will occur in September 2016.
