Master of Physician Assistant Studies
A Legacy Of Excellence
Kettering College is distinguished as one of the oldest PA programs in the nation. Duke University developed the nation’s first physician assistant program, accepting its first class of PA students in 1965, and Kettering College was not far behind. We have been educating quality PAs since 1973.

Our PA students are taught by faculty who are dedicated to constantly improving their preparation for a career. We are proud to share that the MPAS Class of 2016 earned a 100% pass rate and the Class of 2015 and 2014 earned a 98% pass rate on the NCCPA examination.
Through our affiliation with the Kettering Health Network, our PA students are provided the unique opportunity to experience the clinical portion of their education within a nationally recognized hospital network.

In both 2000 and 2007, the program was granted a seven-year re-accreditation status, the highest possible at that time. In 2014, the program was granted a ten-year reaccreditation, the maximum amount allotted and a top distinction among PA programs.
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program sponsored by Kettering 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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 2024. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the accreditation standards and ARC-PA policy.
