Welcome to the Physician Assistant Department!
The Physician Assistant, working with physicians and other health professionals, performs many clinical functions that enable the physician to devote more time to duties requiring his particular knowledge and skill.
In most clinical settings, the Physician Assistant has their own patient load and
obtains medical histories, performs physical examinations, orders and interprets laboratory
results and other information and assesses and treats common illnesses, including
writing prescriptions. Disease prevention and health promotion activities, counseling
and patient education are other important services provided. Physician Assistants
can specialize in virtually any health care field.
