What is a PA?
PAs are medical professionals who are able to diagnose illness, develop and manage treatment plans and prescribe medications. PAs are educated at the master’s degree level. 
 
There are more than 250 PA programs in the country and admission is highly competitive, requiring a bachelor’s degree and completion of courses in basic and behavioral sciences as prerequisites. PA programs are approximately 27 months (three academic years), and include classroom instruction and more than 2,000 hours of clinical rotations. With thousands of hours of medical training, PAs are versatile and collaborative. PAs practice in every state and in every medical setting and specialty, improving healthcare access and quality.  
 
PAs practice medicine with the supervision of a physician. What this means is a collaborative relationship has been established -- with the physician depending on the PA to treat the patient in the same manner as if the physician were providing the care, and the PA depending on the physician to provide consultation and supervision as needed to ensure all patients receive appropriate care."
