50 Years of PAs Serving Americans

pa-trusted-50

PAs have been providing valuable service in American Healthcare for the past 50 years.

PAs are nationally certified and state licensed medical providers trained to diagnose and treat patients as well as prescribe medication. Thanks to an education modeled on the medical school curriculum, PAs learn to make life-saving diagnostic and therapeutic decisions while working autonomously or in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team. PAs are certified as medical generalists with a foundation in primary care.

 

 

America Needs PAs

PAs are trusted healthcare providers. Studies have shown that PAs help reduce hospital readmission rates, lengths of stay and infection rates.

Today, there are more than 115,500 certified PAs in the United States
