Physician Assistant: Executive Summary

By Marty Nemko
Posted December 19, 2007 US News & World Report

Don't confuse physician assistants with medical assistants, who aren't qualified to do much more than take your blood pressure. Physician assistants do 80 percent of what doctors do: conduct exams, diagnose conditions, prescribe medications, even assist in surgery. While PAs are supervised by physicians, they have considerable autonomy. And while pay isn't doctorlike, it's far from sickly. Plus training is much shorter than it is for doctors, typically consisting of three years, post-bachelor's. No surprise this is one of America's fastest-growing professions.

The American Academy of Physician Assistants publishes a list of all accredited training programs.
