What is a PA?
PAs are medical professionals who work alongside doctors and surgeons to diagnose illness, perform surgery, and otherwise manage and develop treatment plans.
The United States currently has almost three hundred PA programs. Admission is highly competitive and requires a bachelor’s degree and specific prerequisite courses. PA students work as paramedics, athletic trainers, medical assistants and more before attending graduate school. PA programs include classroom instruction and more than two thousand hours of clinical rotations.
Our PAs are an integral part of the NYBRA team. They provide vital support to our surgeons both in the operating room and in the office, building long-lasting relationships with our patients.
