National Physician Assistants Day - November 27

November 26, 2014

November 27 is National Physician Assistant Day in Canada. Doctors of BC wishes to recognize Physician Assistants and celebrate the impact they have improving patient access to quality health care across Canada.

Under the supervision of the physicians they work alongside, Physician Assistants (PAs) are medical professionals who are able to carry out many of the same services and procedures, thereby increasing access to quality medical care and decreasing patient wait times. Doctors of BC supports the establishment and deployment of PAs in BC.

Please join us in acknowledging the many PAs practicing in various clinical settings across Canada and the positive impact they are making on Canadian health care.
