Biography

Christine Li is a physician assistant in the Department of Neurological Surgery and the OHSU Spine Center. Physicians assisitants (PAs) are often referred to as mid-level providers.

 

Physician assistants are highly trained members of our neurological surgery health care team who practice medicine with the supervision of licensed physicians, providing patients with a wide range of services that would otherwise be performed by physicians. Specific duties are defined by state regulation and practice setting, but include a variety of both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

 

Utilizing a medical model of patient care, PAs are trained to:

-- obtain medical histories,

-- perform complete physical examinations and minor surgical procedures,

-- diagnose illnesses,

-- order and interpret routine diagnostic tests,

-- develop treatment and management plans,

-- suture wounds,

-- set fractures,

-- assist in surgery, and

-- provide education to patients regarding illness, health promotion and disease prevention.
