About Physician Assistants (PAs)
|At UW Health, physician assistants work together on teams with physicians to provide direct medical care to patients of all ages across primary, specialty, hospital and long-term care settings. A physician assistant is an advanced practice provider (APP) with a bachelor's or master's degree. They have education, training and certification in a medical model of care that focuses on the diagnosis, management, prevention and treatment of common and complex medical conditions. They are licensed and board-certified to provide medical care with the supervision of a physician. Physician Assistants are also referred to as advanced practice providers (APPs) and PA-C (certified physician assistant).
