Movement on Physician Assistant Doctorate Issue
The PAEA-AAPA summit to consider an entry-level doctorate degree for the profession is scheduled for March 25-27.
The organizations have created a sponsor group "to oversee the planning, research, and educational process that will support the final recommendation."
There seems to be a lot of bureaucracy going on, but I guess that's not always a bad thing. At least they are beginning to address the issue.
The sponsor group members are:
Matt Dane Baker, PA-C, DHSc
Dawn Morton-Rias, EdD, PA-C
Donna Sewell, MS, PA-C
Patricia Guerra, PA-C, MPAS
Timi Agar Barwick
Ayeshia Ellington Pompey
Bob McNellis, MPH, PA
