Trevecca received notification from the Accreditation Review Commission for Physician Assistants (ARC-PA), the national accrediting body for physician assistant programs, that Trevecca’s Physician Assistants Program has been granted continuing accreditation to March 2020. The program has been accredited by ARC-PA since 1978, and the seven-year cycle awarded is the longest the program has ever received.
Mike Moredock, MD, the retiring program director, attributes this affirmation of the accreditation to the success of the program’s graduates and the quality of the program personnel: “The hard work, compassion for patients, diligence in passing the certification exam, and ambassadorship as PAs make it hard to deny that the program is on the right track in educating its students. I thank the program faculty for their hard work and many hours of review and preparation, which have been blessed by God to whom all the glory should be given. We partake and He undertakes for us.”
The University congratulates Dr. Moredock, the PA faculty, and the PA students for this significant accomplishment.
The following is the ARC-PA statement:
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued to the Trevecca Nazarene University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by the Trevecca Nazarene University. 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 2020. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Standards and ARC-PA policy.
