Physician Assistants

A physician assistant (PA) is a medical professional who is nationally certified and state-licensed to practice medicine. The PA course of study is rigorous and intense. The average length of the education program is three years. PAs also complete more than 2,000 hours of clinical rotations. PAs obtain medical histories, conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat conditions and injuries, prescribe medications, order and interpret tests, assist in surgery, provide patient education, and make rounds at the hospital.
