PA students

Preparing for a high-demand field.

Physician assistants are in high demand, and the PA field has one of the most positive occupational outlooks of any healthcare profession. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physician assistants is expected to grow by 39 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations.

PAs practice in a wide variety of medical fields, including all primary care areas (e.g., family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine), as well as all specialty areas (e.g., cardiology, surgery, orthopedics). They work in rural settings, major metropolitan areas, in the armed forces, and in doctor’s offices, clinics and hospitals.
