Physician assistants are increasingly more likely to head into specialties such as surgery and emergency medicine rather than primary care, according to the News & Observer.
Researchers at the Duke University PA program studied the job choices of PAs from 1997 to 2006 and found that the number of PAs going into primary care declined to 41% ...
Physician assistant students at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., received recognition in the New Haven Register this month for their volunteer work in the Dominican Republic.

In the past week, several news stories--including blog entries and videos--have reported on an incident involving University of New Mexico physician assistant students.
