ARC-PA is an independent accrediting body that protects the interests of the public and the physician assistant profession by defining the standards for physician assistant education and evaluating PA educational programs within the territorial United States to ensure their compliance with those standards. It also periodically reviews schools’ compliance with standards after accreditation.
