Canadian Physician Assistants are academically and a clinically educated medical generalist who practise medicine within a formalized structure with physicians. PA education prepares a medical generalist adaptable to any clinical environment including primary health care, specialty practice, consulting or hospital-based roles. PAs will over time develop an increased knowledge of a medical or surgical specialty. The PAs’ scope of practice mirrors that of the physicians, within a relationship of negotiated autonomy.
This journal is not intended to provide the public or our patients with a source for medical reference. Speak with your Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician if you have health concerns or questions. When it comes to your healthcare direct communication makes a difference.
