Deceleration Policy

A deceleration is defined by the ARC-PA as “the loss of a student from the entering cohort, who remains matriculated in the physician assistant program.” MSU PA Medicine does not allow for deceleration, due to the lock-step nature of the program and the dynamic changes that may take place in the curriculum from year to year.

The Department PA Medicine faculty approved this student handbook and policies on March 16, 2020.
Revised and approved by the Faculty of the Department of PA Medicine on 3/19/2021, 3/15/2022, 4/18/2023.
