NOTE: A physician assistant is a health care professional trained in an intensive education program. PAs are licensed by the state or credentialed by a federal employer to practice medicine with the supervision of a physician. As part of their comprehensive responsibilities, PAs perform physical exams, diagnose conditions and illnesses, develop and carry out treatment plans, order and interpret lab tests, suture, assist in surgery, provide patient education, counsel on preventive health care and can prescribe medications in virtually all states. Supervising physicians work closely with their PAs to determine which patients and conditions they want them to treat. Close consultation between the physician, PA and patient is utilized for unusual or hard-to-manage patients. To remain nationally certified, PAs must complete 100 hours of continuing medical education every 2 years and must pass a national recertification examination every 6 years.
