Does the title Physician Assistant truly capture the core of the PA's role in the 21st century? Does the title hinder efforts to advance the role of the PA profession? Is the word "assistant" confusing to patients, doctors and other healthcare professionals? Those are just a few of the questions explored by host Lisa D'Andrea Lenell and Dave Mittman, president elect of the American College of Clinicians and founder of Clinician 1, the online home for physican assistants and nurse practitioners. The two discuss the history behind the PA moniker and the debate over whether or not the physician assistant should become "physician associate."
