Credentialing Information

Bethel University PA students undergo extensive health screening and hospital training for addressing compliance issues with state and federal guidelines. The training and screening includes HIPAA training, immunization verification to include Hepatitis B, current annual TB skin test, and recent criminal background check and drug screen. Once a student is confirmed to rotate with a preceptor site, proof of this information is provided from the program and the student.

Accreditation and Program Goals

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Bethel University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Bethel University.

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.

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
