What is a Physician Assistant (PA)?
Physician Assistants (PA’s) are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. PA’s are educated and trained in the medical model, which is designed to complement physician training, at nationally accredited Physician Assistant programs. Following graduation from an accredited program, a PA must pass a national examination in order to become certified by the NCCPA (National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants) and in order to receive a state license to practice. PA’s conduct physical examinations, order and interpret tests, and provide a broad range of both diagnostic and therapeutic services that include writing prescriptions and performing procedures.
