PUBLIC MEMBER FOR THE COMMISSION
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) seeks nominations for a public member commissioner. The ARC-PA is the recognized accrediting agency that protects the interests of the public and PA profession by defining the standards for PA education and evaluating PA educational programs to ensure their compliance with those standards.
The Public Member serves as a consumer advocate, representing the public interest in relation to the accreditation of physician assistant programs. The public member commissioner is expected to attend the three commission meetings (March, June and September) of the ARC-PA, contribute to discussions about accreditation status of programs, and participate in site visits to PA programs and as a member of ARC-PA committees or task forces. The term of appointment is 3 years with an opportunity for re-appointment for a second three-year term. For more information regarding the duties of a commissioner please contact the ARC-PA Executive Director.
The public member may not derive his or her livelihood from the Physician Assistant profession. Those working in educational administration, health-related organizations, and the accreditation community are not automatically excluded from consideration.
Travel and other direct costs related to the public member attending regular, special, or committee meetings, or site visits will be paid by the ARC-PA. Public Commissioners receive no compensation for their services.
The first term of office will begin January 1, 2019 and will end December 31, 2021.
To be considered (nominated or self-declared), please submit a resume and a statement describing your/their interest, experience and background that would support the mission of the ARC-PA.
Materials must be submitted via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org by August 17, 2018.
