Status does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status and is limited to a maximum of five years from the admission of the first class.

This status is granted when plans and resources, if fully implemented, appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet ARC-PA standards or appear to demonstrate continued progress in meeting the standards while he is preparing for the graduation of the first class of students.

The university’s full-time, 24-month Master of Medical Sciences in PA studies will be divided into two phases: a didactic year and a clinical year. Courses in the didactic year will build on previous undergraduate training and prepare students for their clinical year, which aims to give them relevant professional experiences.
