Comprehensive, Patient- Centered Health Care Training

The Physician Assistant (PA) Program at Lincoln, Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee has been training PA to meet the health care needs of the community and beyond since 2009. Utilizing dedicated, experienced faculty in academics with clinical and research expertise, and state-of-the-art technology our students experience first-class, hands-on medical education. Using simulated trainers, students practice procedural skills such as intravenous catheter insertion, lumbar puncture, and point-of-care ultrasound. Our students have a unique opportunity to participate in a variety of volunteer experiences where medical services are provided to indigent, uninsured, and underserved populations.

WHAT IS A PA?

Physician Assistants (PA) are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with supervision from a doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO). As a team with the supervising physician, the PA provides diagnostic and therapeutic patient care, takes patient histories, performs physical examinations, orders diagnostic studies, and develops and carries out treatment plans. PAs also work in research, administrative and academic positions. PAs work in private physician offices, clinics, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, and neighborhood health centers, federal and state facilities, the Armed Services, industries, universities, medical schools, and many other settings.
