The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the University of Lynchburg Physician Assistant Program sponsored by University of Lynchburg. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2029. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
The University of Lynchburg submitted a successful substantive change to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to include the PA Medicine degree as part of the University’s SACSCOC accreditation.
