Arcadia’s hybrid physician assistant (PA) program enables our distinctive PA curriculum to reach the next generation of health care providers across the country. For the last five years, our on-campus students have maintained an average first-time test-taker pass rate of 99 percent on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE), exceeding the 96 percent national average.1

Arcadia’s hybrid program is delivered through a blend of self-guided coursework, live online classes, and in-person clinical rotation experiences. Students in the on-campus and hybrid PA program progress through courses on the same schedule. Find out more about the Arcadia hybrid program’s competencies.
