The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has established Accreditation Standards to maintain and promote appropriate benchmarks of quality in the education process of Physician Assistants. These Accreditation Standards are used as guidelines in the development, evaluation, and self-analysis of Physician Assistant programs. The ARC-PA provides recognition for educational programs that are in compliance with standards of quality for Physician Assistant education.

The standards are posted online.
