A physician assistant (PA), also known as physician associate, is a healthcare professional trained and licensed to practice medicine with limited supervision or collaboration of a physician. PAs are concerned with preventing, maintaining, and treating human illness and injury by providing a broad range of health care services that are traditionally performed by a physician. PAs conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions.
PAs work in hospitals, clinics, and other types of health facilities, and exercise autonomy in medical decision making as determined by their colaborating physician. The professional requirements typically include at least two years of graduate level education in medicine. They are educated in the medical model designed to complement physician training.
