Physician Assistant & Physician? What?s the Difference?

Physician Assistant & Physician? What?s the Difference?

Most of the time the physician assistant is going to be in the place of the physician doing most of the tasks that were traditionally meant to be done by the physician themselves. The PA is going to be the health care professional who is trained by the direction of a physician, and by that physician being their supervisor. The way they are going to be trained and supervised will all depend on their supervising physician’s type of practice and the laws of the state that they live in.

If the physician is a surgeon, a chiropractor, a podiatrist or even a dentist it doesn’t matter because the PA is going to have to acclimate to whatever practice their physician has. These two health care workers work collaboratively so that patient care is done safe and correctly. Now even though I’ve gone into how a PA is always going to have a physician as their supervisor, there are still defining differences between them. These differences between physicians and their assistants are….

-The first difference between PAs and physicians is the amount of schooling that is required to become both. Unlike physicians, PAs don’t have to go to medical school for 10 years to get certified and practice medicine. In fact, physicians can be in school for up to 18 years before they decide to start practicing medicine. To even gain admission into med school, an aspiring physician is required to do an internship in a hospital and they’re going to have to do a residency. A physician assistant doesn’t have to do residencies or internships to get into the PA school of their choice, and there are PAs who aren’t even certified and yet they still practice medicine in hospitals because they have the necessary education to begin practicing medicine.

That’s one difference between the two.

-There are different duties and responsibilities between PAs and physicians when it concerns providing patient care on a daily basis. Its going to be the physician who is mainly responsible for overseeing the care of the patient, and its going to be the PA who is under the supervision of the physician when they are providing patient care at the delegation of the physician. The responsibility for patients doesn’t lie on the PA’s shoulder, it lies on the physician’s.

This is a great career that is extremely rewarding at the end of the day because of all the things you experience and what you ultimately do for people who are suffering.
