Accreditation

Graduates of the Joint MSPAS/MPH Program receive training in two disciplines, each of which has its own accrediting body. Touro University California is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges' Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities.

Physician Assistant Program

The Physician Assistant Program is accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Touro University California Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Touro University California and the Touro College and University System. 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 September 2018. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
