A physician assistant is a health care practitioner who practices medicine in collaboration with or under the supervision of a physician. Physician Assistants are trained under the medical model, similarly to physicians, to deliver high-quality medical care in both primary and secondary care settings. Physician assistants are integral members of the health care team in many hospitals and clinical practices.
