I apologize to everyone for not using the correct terminology. Forgive me for that. I was not aware of the technical term. ** "Probationary Accreditation" is a temporary status of accreditation assigned 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manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn. http://www.arc-pa.com/acc_programs/ Good Luck
TO THE ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY AT CHATHAM PA PROGRAM. I want to say in clearly stated terms that i don't wish BAD for Chatham University as i have graduated from there but i wish a spade was called a spade. I want to be proud of my School but unfortunately i have no reason to be, even though i have no relationship to it (Thankfully) The administration and faculty should feel the gravity of the situation and shock themselves out of denial that its gonna be fine. Firstly stop saying its a great PA school which it is not. Second take the feedback from the students anonymously, especially the ones who got kicked out for personal reasons, you should also contact all the persons who have graduated and ask them about the quality of the education they get and the amount of money they pay. Get a proactive faculty who are willing to work with the students in real not via email. Get a faculty that can be approached and does not have firewalls around them except for a favorite few. Stop harassing students and threatening them with UNPROFESSIONAL behavior. Work with the students and tend to the problems at hand rather than shove them into the email box. Switch over to a didactic theme, PBL is passe, its only a few in the nation that do it. THIS MEANS GETTING A FACULTY WHICH IS ACTIVE AND SLICK. NOT LAZY PEOPLE WHO ONLY EMAIL AND THREATEN YOU. UPDATE the curriculum and stop recycling. Get a faculty who are clinically active. This program needs a major rehaul, and if there is just a paintjob this time, it will crumble and vanish for ever. UNFORTUNATELY FROM what i heard the only person who could make a difference in the program has already resigned, perhaps she saw that the bubble has burst and its time to go. I want the Faculty and administration to know that facts are facts, word travels fast and this is the age of SOCIAL NETWORKING, bring out the letter in open and see what inputs you get from the students, i am sure they will be much better than what the faculty has to offer. The Honorable Deans should make a proper enquiry as to why this fiasco happened, if the faculty was always painting a rosy picture. I dont think it happened overnight or with one batch of students. The rot must have started long before. I hope transformation and changes happen for the better at Chatham and it can be a better program than it is now, i mean far more better.
