What Is a Physician Assistant?
Certified Physician Assistants (PA-C) are medical providers licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. Most PA-Cs have a college degree and over four years of health-care experience prior to testing for and enrolling in a PA Certification program. Physician Assistant programs are rigorous, last 26 continuous months and follow the Medical School educational model. To remain nationally certified, Physician Assistants must complete 100 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) every two years and pass a national re-certification exam every six years.
Physicians Assistants are authorized to prescribe medicine and most medical specialties employ PA-Cs to address routine issues. Thus, our practice improves the efficiency and availability of care without sacrificing quality.
