  • Overview

    Despite the current economic recession in the United States, the PA profession is growing at a rapid pace. Currently there are 73,000 PAs nationwide and 5000 new PAs are graduating every year. Cynthia Lord, president of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the program director of the Physician Assistant Program at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, talks with host Lisa D'Andrea Lenell about why the PA profession remains solid and whether a PA career is immune to troubled financial times. The two also look at the growing pains of a thriving field and how the profession is dealing with current growth.
