Pandemic Demands Highlight Resilience, Value of Physician Assistants

Like every other segment of healthcare professionals, Certified Physician Assistants (PA) have been put to the test during 2020. The stress of battling a new virus, long hours caring for patients for whom they wish they could do more, efforts to support scared and distraught families, concern for medical colleagues, worry for the health of their own families, and the toll exacted by often isolating themselves from home to avoid possibly infecting loved ones would, at first glance, seem enough to break the best of us.

But, though bent by the demands of the pandemic, America’s Certified PAs are most definitely not broken.
