NCCPA Upholds Rigorous Recertification Process

  • The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) affirms its commitment to a thoughtful, relevant and rigorous recertification process that serves the public interest.
    NCCPA is the only certifying body for the PA profession and as such, it has certified over 130,000 PAs during its greater than 40-year history. During this period, the profession has grown significantly and PAs have been welcomed as they have demonstrated their knowledge and ability to provide safe and cost-effective care. PAs are widely accepted in every specialty and clinical setting, and today over 70 percent of PAs work in specialties outside of primary care.  Read more.
