How a Physician Assistant Can Help You

Physician assistant students benefit your practice by adding a source of talent, providing a means of recruiting a full-time PA-C to your practice, assisting in your daily duties, providing linkage to the academic community, and are a source of new ideas.

PA graduates work with physicians to facilitate distribution of health care services and improve access to care, including rural and underserved communities. PAs can increase practice efficiency within ambulatory care practice and reduce patient waiting time. They also allow physicians more time for difficult cases, continuing medical education and other pursuits. PAs also improve patient rapport, compliance, and satisfaction through increased counseling and education. PAs can reduce the frequency and duration of costly hospitalizations by stressing preventive health care. PAs help to decrease health care costs through increased practice productivity.
