Physician Assistants (PAs) are medically trained and licensed to provide high quality health care, treat illnesses, plan prevention strategies, and write prescriptions. As nationally certified and state-licensed medical professionals, PAs are recognized as one of 3 primary care providers (PAs, Nurse Practitioners, and Physicians). PAs lead patient-centered medical teams and can practice autonomously or in collaboration with other members of a patient’s healthcare team. PAs undergo rigorous medical training to become certified as medical generalists with a foundation in primary care, but they also have the unique opportunity to practice in various specialty areas (Surgery, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Orthopedics, etc.), giving them deep and fulfilling professional experiences as well as the flexibility to meet the changing needs of their patients, employers, and communities.
