Welcome to the Barry University Physician Assistant Program
Our vision is that our graduates will be PA leaders in health care technology and clinical practice.
The Barry University Physician Assistant Program educates students in the practice of collaborative medicine and encourages life-long learning and professional development. It fosters a technology rich environment and clinical training experiences among diverse patient populations. The Program enables students to develop competencies required to meet the health care needs of contemporary society.
The Program seats students at the Barry University campus in Miami Shores, at St. Petersburg College, through a partnership with the University Partnership Center, and at the St. Croix campus in the United States Virgin Islands. The faculty teaches from each site via interactive videoconferencing. Applications to any campus are processed through the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA).
PA Program Accreditation
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Barry 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 March 2016. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy. For further information please visit http://www.arc-pa.org/
