Sarasota Memorial Health Care SystemPublic
Sarasota Memorial is pleased to observe Physician Assistants Week, Oct. 6 - 12. PAs are licensed medical professionals who examine, test, treat and prescribe medication for patients. Like physicians, the exact duties of PAs depend on the type of medical setting in which they work, their level of experience, their specialty and state laws. PAs can take patient medical histories, conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, develop treatment plans, counsel on preventive healthcare, assist in surgery and write prescriptions.
