Physician Assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. Common services provided by a PA include taking medical histories and performing physical examinations; ordering and interpreting lab tests; diagnosing and treating illnesses; assisting in surgery; prescribing medication; and counseling patients. Being a physician assistant is both rewarding and challenging.
Once you pass the national certification exam, you can practice in any specialty that you choose, in any state in the United States and in some countries.
