Every year from October 6-12, Mobile Physician Services celebrates National PA Week, which recognizes the Physician Assistant profession and its contributions to the nation’s health. PAs practice medicine in every setting and specialty.
This week is an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession.
- Physician Assistants (PA) are academically and clinically prepared medical professionals who diagnose illness, develop and manage treatment plans, and often serve as a patient’s principal healthcare provider
- PAs are often the first point of contact for many patients and play a vital role in helping them understand their medical needs and empower them to become effective advocates for their own health
- PAs enhance the delivery of high-quality healthcare for patients, often in medically under- served and rural areas
- PAs have earned the respect of the general public for their dedication and contributions to people’s lives and for their commitment to team-based care and ensure delivery of effective and efficient healthcare services;
