Overview

B.Sc. Physician Assistant (PAT) is four-year program including one-year compulsory internship. Physician Assistants work on teams with physicians or surgeons and other healthcare workers. Physician assistants work in all areas of medicine, including primary care and family medicine, emergency medicine, surgery, and psychiatry. Physician Assistant specialists are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive health care services in virtually all medical specialties, as delegated by physician. Working as members of a health care team, they take medical histories, perform physical examination, order and interpret laboratory tests and X-rays and make diagnosis. They also manage minor injuries by suturing, splinting and casting. PAs record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients, and order to carry out therapy. Additional nonclinical positions are in the pipeline for physician assistants. Only those who are willing to dedicate themselves for patient care dedicated to strenuous work should opt for this course. PAs can opt in different specialties including Cardiology, CVTS, Head & Neck and Plastic Surgery, Nephrology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Urology, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, GI Surgery, Endocrinology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Gynaec Oncology, General Medicine and Pediatrics.

The scope of this course is tremendous in our country. Apart from working as PA, they get placements in medical software institutions, pharmaceutical industry and organizations developing and marketing sophisticated medical devices, medical tourism, and medical insurance. They can be appointed as coordinators for various clinical trials. Abroad they can work as medical technologists, scientists, cardiac technologists, case managers, and research assistants.
