Continuing Accreditation

Here is the press release from Harding University on our continuing accreditation:

Harding’s Physician Assistant Program receives continued accreditation

SEARCY, Ark. — Harding University’s Physician Assistant Program has been awarded continued accreditation by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

The 28-month graduate program began at Harding in summer 2005 and is the first physician assistant program in Arkansas. Currently, there are 64 students enrolled in the program.

"We are honored at having received accreditation for a period of five years with no citations. This is unusual for a program as young as Harding's,” said Dr. Michael Murphy, program director. “The credit goes to the program faculty and staff and our many clinical preceptors who have all worked so hard to meet the accreditation standards and provide quality PA education and clinical training for our students."

The program's next review by ARC-PA will be in September 2014.
