The Hardin-Simmons University PA Program is dedicated to academic excellence in medical education. Our mission is to develop compassionate PA leaders who are committed to lifelong learning and community service. Working together as part of a greater healthcare team, our graduates will deliver exceptional healthcare to patients in West Texas and worldwide.
Hardin-Simmons University has applied for Accreditation - Provisional* from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Hardin-Simmons anticipates matriculating its first class in Fall 2017, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the March 2017 ARC-PA meeting. For more information, please visit Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant.
*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.
The Hardin-Simmons University PA Program accreditation is pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

University’s PA Program intends to be fully compliant with Fair Practices
regarding reporting of first-time pass rates on the National Commission on
Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) Physician Assistant National
Certifying Exam (PANCE). We will report in whole the most recent five-year,
NCCPA published, first-time graduate performance results in a timely manner, as
results are released to us from NCCPA. Because our program has not yet
graduated its first class (inaugural class begins August 2017 and will graduate
December 2019), we have no data to currently report. Data expected Spring 2020.
