Accreditation Status – Program – ARC-PA
The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to The
University of Tampa Physician Assistant Medicine Program sponsored by The
University of Tampa.
Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and
resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program
that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability
to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding
Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in
complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first
class (cohort) of students.
Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status.
It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
Accreditation Status – University – SACS-COC
In November 2017, UT was
notified that the board of trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools Commission on Colleges reviewed the materials seeking approval of the
Master in Physician Assistant Medicine. It was the decision of the board to
approve the program and include it in the scope of the current accreditation.
