Physician Assistant Programs

Physician’s assistants (PAs) are health care professionals who practice medicine as a member of a team with their supervising physician. They deliver a broad range of medical services, including conducting physical exams, diagnosing and treating illnesses, ordering and interpreting tests, assisting in surgery, and prescribing medications.

Physician assistant programs provide the knowledge and develop the skills required for these services and in this way qualify you as a physician assistant. Most PA students start their medical education with a background of health care experience. They must have a bachelor’s degree and usually also need a masters degree. This page has details of suitable programs and how to find them, as well information on career and earning prospects. If you are interested in assisting in the health and medical professions, you may also like to check the programs for nursing.
