It's no surprise that PAs are in the spotlight once again. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, by 2024 the profession is expected to grow by 30%. Recently Forbes ranked the 20 Fastest Growing Jobs in America, and Physician Assistants made the list at number 12!
The good news is, as the profession rapidly grows so has the number of PA programs. This spring Pennsylvania State University, Johnson & Wales University, Heritage University, and Gardner-Webb University graduated their first class of PAs. Congratulations Class of 2016!
To all the PAs in practice, thank you for creating momentum enabling our profession to flourish. For those interested in joining the profession, be the movement.
