What Are the Fields That Physician Assistants Can Work In?

What Are the Fields That Physician Assistants Can Work In?

You might be wondering, what a physician assistant (PA) can do other than in the hospital settings. In fact, job opportunities are everywhere for PA’s, especially in the rural places or inner city clinics that are facing shortage of physicians. Employment rate of PA’s is predicted to grow rapidly as a result of high demand of health care services.

Most PA’s serve in primary care settings – general internal medicine, family medicine and pediatrics, while some others commit themselves in specialty areas such as emergency medicine, general and thoracic surgery, geriatrics and orthopedics.

There are some specific fields for PA’s as well.

Bureau of Prisons Physician Assistant

The PA’s who work in the prisons will be responsible for the prisoners’ health care and diagnosis. PA’s will help to observe and evaluate the health condition of the prisoners, as well as to perform physical examinations, and run lab tests for them. This job will need the applicants to possess a bachelor’s degree and must be certified by NCCPA. Minimum three years of clinical experience is required.

Military

PA position is very much on demand for the military. In military settings, a PA is seen as the principle health care provider. The PA will work together with physical therapists, first aiders, and other support units.

Rural Area Practitioner

The federal laws only require a physician to be physically present only for one or two days a week, so the PA who duties in rural area is considered as the primary care provider. Consultations happen via email or telephone when there are needs. A PA who serves in rural area must be very independent, resilient, flexible and responsible since there has only limited support.

Other than the fields mentioned briefly above, there are also job opportunities such as clinical advisor, clinical services manager, emergency room physician assistant, medical practitioner, and surgical assistant.
