Physician Assistant Studies
Lynchburg College proposes to initiate a Physician Assistant Studies graduate program with a first entering class proposed for fall of 2015. The program will be approximately 28 months in duration. It will be housed in the health sciences facility adjacent to the main campus of the College, which will be renovated to accommodate the training needs for the program.
The cohort size for the program is proposed to be approximately 25-40. The information provided herein is in draft form only and will be updated on a regular basis at this website.
Lynchburg College has applied for provisional accreditation from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The College anticipates matriculating its first class in June 2015, pending provisional accreditation in March 2015. Provisional accreditation is an accreditation status for a new PA program that has not yet enrolled students, but at the time of its comprehensive accreditation review, has demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation standards. The program will not commence in the event that this provisional accreditation is not received.
