What is a PA?
Physician Assistants (PA) are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with supervision from a doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO). As a team with the supervising physician, the PA provides diagnostic and therapeutic patient care, takes patient histories, performs physical examinations, orders diagnostic studies and develops and carries out treatment plans. PAs also work in research, administrative and academic positions. PAs work in private physician offices, clinics, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, and neighborhood health centers, federal and state facilities, the Armed Services, industries, universities, medical schools and many other settings.
