Thomas Jefferson University merged with Philadelphia University on July 1, 2017.  This is the homepage for the Thomas Jefferson University PA Program Center City Campus (formerly Thomas Jefferson University Physician Assistant Program). This Program has been granted Accreditation-Provisional status by the ARC-PA. Accreditation-Provisional status indicates that the plans and resource allocation for the proposed program appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards, if fully implemented as planned. Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.

The homepage for the Thomas Jefferson University PA Program East Falls and New Jersey Campuses (formerly Philadelphia University PA Program) which has separate ARC-PA accreditation, faculty and curriculum can be found here. Both websites are in the process of being updated.
