Department of Physician Assistant Sciences

Physician assistants (PAs) are health professionals who are licensed to practice medicine under physician supervision. Physician assistants are qualified by graduation from an accredited physician assistant educational program and by certification by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Within the physician/PA relationship, the PA exercises autonomy in medical decision making and provides a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. The clinical role of a PA includes primary and specialty care in medical and surgical settings in rural and urban areas. The PA's practice is centered on patient care and may also include educational, research, and administrative activities.
