Minimum requirements for acceptance into a physician assistant educational program is 2 years of college and some health care experience. Almost all applicants into physician assistant educational programs had at least a bachelor’s degree.

Physician assistant education programs must be accredited by the American Academy of Physician Assistants. Most of these programs concomitantly offer a master’s degree. These programs can be found in medical schools, 4 year colleges, allied health, and academic health centers.

All states including the District of Columbia require the physician assistant to be licensed. Licensure is obtained by passing the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination, administered by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA). This exam can only be taken by the those individuals which have successfully completed the 2 year physician assistant educational program. There are also specific requirements for maintaining certification.

For more information about education required for the physician assistant in the United States go to Occupational Outlook Handbook provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Job outlook for the physician assistant:

As health care cost containment continues throughout the United States, physician assistants will continue to be in high demand. Locations of highest demand will be the rural and inner city clinics since these areas have more trouble in attracting physicians.

Between 2006 and 2016, employment for the physician assistant is expected to grow at around 27%. This is considered much faster relative to all other occupations. The bottom line is that job prospects for the physician assistant are considered very good over all. The main reason for this is because most states allow the physician assistant to take over routine duties of the physician which is a very cost effective way to treat patients.
