What is a Physician Assistant?
Physician assistants (PAs) have a generalist medical education and practice as part of a physician-led team. Each PA’s scope of practice is defined by the supervising physician’s delegation decisions, consistent with the PA’s education and experience, facility policy, and state laws. PAs provide care in a variety of practice settings. Not only can PAs perform a range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, but they also enhance coordination of care and patient satisfaction.
PAs work in concert with physicians, complementing the physician’s ability to deliver a comprehensive range of medical and surgical services to diverse patient populations. PAs’ rigorous education, versatility and commitment to individualized treatment help physicians and practices function more efficiently and enhance continuity of health care.
