Physician assistants (PAs) are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine interdependently with physicians.  Within the physician/PA relationship, physician assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision making and provide a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic services.  The clinical role of physician assistants include primary and specialty care in medical and surgical practice settings in rural and urban areas. Physician assistants practice is centered on patient care and may include educational, research and administrative activities.
