What is a Physician Assistant? 

A Physician Assistant (PA) is a healthcare provider who diagnosis and treats a wide variety of conditions. Physician Assistants receive their training through the College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program at colleges and universities across the United States. Physician Assistants are part of the healthcare team and required by state law to have a supervising physician.  Many PAs work independently within the dermatology office much like a staff dermatologist seeing a wide range of medical, surgical and cosmetic patients, but always under physician supervision.  PAs also hold a prescribing license and are able to write prescriptions under the guidelines of the state they are licensed.
