What exactly is a physician assistant and why does it merit recognition as the number on profession in the country? In this conversation between Dr. Richard Marn and Georgia dermatology PA, Savanna Perry, we’re going see exactly why. Join in as Dr. Marn gets Savanna to explain what the PA title signifies, how it differs from a nurse practitioner, and how different its educational requirements are from most healthcare careers. She also shares about an initiative of hers called The PA Platform, a website that helps students navigate PA school and the PA career. If you’re looking for a healthcare career that entails a lot of clinical work but doesn’t require the amount of schooling that it takes to be a doctor, then you’re going to enjoy listening to this.
