Georgia’s Physician Assistants (PAs) are medically trained and licensed to provide high-quality health care, treat illnesses, plan prevention strategies, and write prescriptions. PAs practice medicine as part of a physician-directed medical team, and over 4,000 PAs in Georgia are making health care more accessible every day.
PAs are knowledgeable and professional health care providers. They are certified medical professionals, training on the same medical model as physicians. Many PAs have worked in the health care industry for several years before becoming PAs, and have extensive health care experience. PAs are required to participate in continuing education to keep their licenses and are always learning more about conditions, diseases, cures, treatments, pharmaceuticals, and more.
