Book on the physician assistant profession


A new book on the physician assistant profession is available.  Roderick S. Hooker, PhD, PA, James F. Cawley, MPH, PA and David P. Asprey, PhD, PA.   Physician Assistants: Policy and Practice, 3rd Ed published by F.A. Davis.  

The book describes all aspects of the PA profession, now comprising more than 74 000 practitioners, and tackles a series of global health workforce policy issues including the utilization of PAs in primary care, rural practice, and in service to medically underserved communities.

It contains a chapter on the global spread of the PA concept and has a bibliography of over 950 citations. With forecasts of a coming shortage of physicians in the USA, PAs will be seen as increasingly valuable members of the health workforce of the future.
