Physician Assistant Program

Meharry Medical College Physician Assistant Sciences Program has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Meharry Medical College Physician Assistant Sciences Program anticipates matriculating its first class in January of 2023, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the June 2022 ARC-PA meeting. 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.


The program is not yet accredited. Applicants for the inaugural MMC PA Sciences cohort will be notified only after the program receives notification of the June 2022 meeting decision of the ARC-PA Commission regarding the program’s Accreditation-Provisional application status. If the program is not granted Accreditation-Provisional status, all applicants will be notified, and the program will not accept any applicants for admission.
