Physician assistants are highly trained members of the health care team who practice medicine with the supervision of licensed physicians, providing patients with a wide range of health care services. Please visit our PA Profession page to learn more about how PAs can contribute to your practice.
Precepting a clinical year PA student is an excellent way to see how a PA could fit into your practice. It also provides a valuable learning experience for our students.
