Xavier University of Louisiana has partnered with Ochsner Health System to advance the education of its students via a new Physician Assistant (PA) Program*. The master’s degree program will include 16 months of clinical training within the Ochsner Health System. This event will celebrate Xavier expanding to provide more experiential opportunities for students as well as the acknowledgement of applications being accepted for the inaugural class of 2022.

*Xavier University Physician Assistant Program is in the process of applying for Accreditation-Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Xavier University anticipates matriculating its first class in January, 2020 pending achieving Accreditation-Provisional status at the September, 2019 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation-Provisional status 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 appears 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 cohort of students.*

*Xavier University Physician Assistant Program will not commence in the event that provisional accreditation status is not received. Students are accepted on a conditional basis. In the event of non-accreditation a refund of applicable tuition deposits will be returned to those students.*
