Congrats! For those of you who were accepted today were you previously put on the waitlist, or was this the first time your portal updated ? 

This was the first time my portal was updated!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I made another thread for the accepted students. Good luck to those of you waitlisted or waiting to hear back! My best advice is to keep updating them of ANY additional volunteering, PCE/HCE, grade updates (even mid semester), etc. There are plenty of people last cycle who made it off of the waitlist, so don't lose hope!

Any updates on accreditation?

No, at the interview this week they said they will send out an email when they find out and update their website. But they think it will be positive given the good feedback they received during the meeting with the ARC-PA

They are fully accredited!! 

Dear PA Students,

As Program Director, I am happy to share with you the great news that the MCPHS Manchester/Worcester Physician Assistant Studies Program received notification today from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA), has been granted Accreditation-Continued status. The approximate date for the next validation review of the Program by the ARC-PA will be September 2027. This decision was based on the Manchester/Worcester PA Studies Program reports, the report of the ARC-PA site visit team following a focused evaluation on-site visit in June 2019, and the Program's accreditation history. This has been a two-year process for the University, Program, and students since 2017 when the Manchester/Worcester PA Studies Program was placed on accreditation-probation status. As you can imagine, it is very gratifying to deliver this positive accreditation status update to our students! Take pride in this accomplishment as it is a reflection of the strength, teamwork, and resilience of our Program faculty, staff, and students – WAY TO GO MCPHS CARDINALS!

Best,

Prof. Magee
