Physician Assistant Studies Department
Marissa Jimenez, MS '19
Digestive Disease Center of the Hudson Valley
I grew up in the Hudson Valley and wanted to attend a program that would allow me to give back to the community. When I heard Marist was starting a Physician Assistant program I was immediately excited, because the heart of Marist College is the dedication to the service of others. With the college’s outstanding academic record and prominent reputation, I knew Marist would best equip me to serve as a Physician Assistant.
About the Physician Assistant Program
*The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc. (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Marist College Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Marist College. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.
Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2030. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
The program’s accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC-PA website at http://www.arc-pa.org/accreditation-history-marist-college/.
