This program was awarded American Board of Genetic Counseling accreditation in 2000 and reaccreditation in 2006. Most recently, the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling re-accredited the program for the maximum eight year period, 2014-2022.

 

Nurse Anesthesia

The USC/PRMH Graduate Program in Nurse Anesthesia is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA): 222 S. Prospect Ave., Park Ridge, IL 60068; 847-655-1160. The program's next review by the COA is scheduled for October 2019.

 

Physician Assistant

 At its June 2019 meeting, the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA) placed the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program sponsored by the University of South Carolina on Accreditation- Probation status until its next review in June 2021.

Probation is a temporary status of accreditation conferred 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manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn.

Specific questions regarding the Program and its plans should be directed to the Program Director and/or the appropriate institutional official(s).

Please refer to the ARC-PA website, www.arc-pa.org for the current Standards, an accreditation manual and other helpful information.

 

Rehabilitation Counseling
