A Physician Assistant (PA) is a healthcare professional who is trained to practice medicine as part of a team with a physician. Physician Assistants are concerned with preventing and treating human illness and injury by providing a broad range of health care services that are traditionally performed by a physician. Physician Assistants conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, prescribe medications, counsel on preventative health care and may assist in surgery.
