What is a PA-C?

Physician Assistants

A Physician Assistant is a licensed health professional who has passed the national certified exam that is administered by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. They complete a clinical rotation through various specialties, which helps enhance their clinical diversity. A PA works under the supervision of a physician to provide preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic health care services. Our PA, PA-C Masson, has also completed a rotation in Dermatology, which confirmed her desire to specialize in the field of dermatology.

**Physician Assistants do clinical rotations like physicians and can specialize just like physicians.
