The Role of a Physician Assistant
Our graduates play an important role in our state's health care.
Physician assistants are licensed medical providers and can:
- conduct physical exams.
- diagnose and treat illnesses.
- order and interpret tests.
- counsel on preventive health.
- assist in surgery.
- write prescriptions.
As our health care system changes, PAs are seen as key components. The profession as a whole is projected to grow 28 percent by 2031, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We offer a Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) review course immediately prior to your graduation, which can help you get certified and ready to work as soon as possible.
