Be A Health Care Hero
Want to make an impact? Practice medicine. Physician assistants do it every day, working directly with doctors to treat the sick, prevent disease, and deliver high-quality primary care to people who need it most. Physician assistants are today’s heroes of health care. And they’re at the heart of the new School of Health Sciences, our significant and strategic commitment to education innovation. With the launch of the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, we’re in the business of health care. Join the team.

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Bryant University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Bryant 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.
