Master of Physician Assistant Program

Class of 2013 in Surgical LabPhysician assistants perform many clinical functions, allowing the physicians and other health professionals they work with more time for duties requiring their particular knowledge and skill. PAs may specialize in virtually any health care field.

In most clinical settings, physician assistants have their own patient load. They obtain medical histories, perform physical examinations, order and interpret laboratory results, write prescriptions, and assess and treat common illnesses. They also provide such services as disease prevention information, health promotion activities, counseling, and patient education.
