What is a PA?
A Physician Assistant (PA) is a health professional licensed by the state to
practice medicine as delegated by and with the supervision of a physician.
PA’s provide a broad range of medical and surgical services that
traditionally have been performed by physicians. As part of their
responsibilities, PA's perform physical exams and many procedures, diagnose
and treat illnesses, order and interpret lab tests, and prescribe
Physician Assistants are trained in intensive education programs accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) . Because of the close working relationship that PAs have with physicians, PAs are educated in the medical model designed to complement physician training.
A PA-C is a “physician assistant-certified”. This person holds the title by passing the certification exam developed jointly by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. To maintain the certified status, a PA-C must complete 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years and take the national recertification exam every six years.
