National Physician Assistant Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987. October 6 kicks off an entire week of celebrating each of the talented Physician Assistants that practices medicine.
PAs are licensed medical providers that graduated from accredited PA educational programs, pass certification exams, and complete 2,000 clinical hours. PAs work in hospitals, urgent care centers, outpatient clinics, and other medical settings. Specialties range from family practice to oncology to surgical. There are more than 140,000 PAs providing care to patients nationwide from rural communities to big cities across the United States.
This year’s National PA Week is more significant than ever as our nation battles the current COVID-19 pandemic. PAs have proven themselves to be essential and resilient during this unprecedented time. Learn more about becoming at PA here https://www.aapa.org.
