Good Video on PA-Physician Partnerships


Recommended Posts

In my job as an emerg PA at a Toronto hospital I am essentially functioning just like I did when I was a PA clinical clerk. I have no actual authority. I basically take a hx and a px and then go talk to my SP who RARELY even wants to hear my plan. They usually grab the chart from me, write their own plan, then go see the patient and carry our their plan and d/c them /admit them and all without every talking to me about them again. At least I get paid now.

since my exposure to PAs have been zilch to date ( I dont think we have any in Quebec), I've got a question for you PAstudent: what are the differences between PAs and NPs? Are the curriculums comparable ? what about exposure to clinical cases and eventual responsibilities / roles?
