PAs in Leadership

PAs who work in clinical practice are natural leaders, teaching patients and their families treatment plans and explaining diagnoses. The role of a PA is often expanded into other roles, formally or informally.

For those interested in pursuing a leadership position, check out American Academy of PAs or follow us on our social media handles!
