NCCPA

The ADPA recognizes that initial and continual certification for Physician Assistants is obtained through the National Commission for the Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) with the requirements of completion of training at an Accreditation Review Commission for the Education of Physician Assistants ARC-PA) accredited program and does not endorse changing the professional PA certification. 

PA Doctoral education is a voluntary decision made by individual PAs who wish to further their education.  There are career tracks and personal interests that make obtaining a doctoral degree for an individual a worthwhile endeavor. 

The ADPA would like to investigate further collaboration with the National Commission for the Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) for recognition of doctoral education in line with the Certificates of Added Qualifications (CAQ) for additional classification recognition category.
