Physician Assistant

Physician Assistants (PA's) work under the supervision of a medical doctor or a doctor of osteopathy. PA's are required to complete both academic coursework and clinical training. A PA's primary role is to deliver diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventative medical services and may also include that of researcher, educator, or administrator. Graduates of a PA program must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) to receive state licensure.
