Thank you for visiting CertPhysicianAssistant.com for all the latest Physician Assistant news and information.

If you are new to the physician assistant profession; the Certified Physician Assistant plays a vital role in the health care field. Working under the supervision of a licensed doctor, a physician assistant deals directly with patients and should not be confused with a medical assistant, who does mostly clerical work.

 

Physician assistant duties typically include checking, charting and even treating patients. A physician assistant has many of the skills required of a doctor and all the patience of a nurse, so it is a challenging yet rewarding career choice.

 

The demand for Physician Assistants has never been higher. The latest statistics indicate the average starting salary of a certified physician assistant to be in the range of $80,000 to $90,000 a year!
