Physician Assistant Practice Program
The College of Health Sciences and Professions offers a master’s degree in Physician Assistant Practice (MPAP) at the University’s Dublin Integrated Education Center in Dublin, Ohio. The seven-semester, 27-month program is designed to prepare students to work in any clinical setting, with an emphasis on primary care in urban and rural medically underserved communities in Ohio and throughout Appalachia.
At its September 2017 meeting, the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) placed the Ohio University Physician Assistant program sponsored by Ohio University on Accreditation-Probation status until its next review in March 2019.
Probation is a temporary status of accreditation conferred when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened.
Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn.
Specific questions regarding the Program and its plans should be directed to the Program Director and/or the appropriate institutional official(s).
