Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies
Des Moines University prepares its physician assistant students to work in and lead a growing profession focused on helping people live healthier lives. Physician assistants are key members of health care teams in hospitals, multispecialty clinics, physician offices, long-term care residences and other settings in rural and urban areas.
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued to the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Des Moines 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 September 2015. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
