(2007): 882-87. Web.

This source relates exactly to my topic. Every point discussed is relatable to my project. The Physician
Assistant position is growing exponentially. As stated in the article, PAs are defined as health care
professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision (Eugene). This quote is the
general topic of the article, but it does go into greater detail. Job tasks and duties are evaluated and
explained, as related to their scope of practice. Also discussed in the journal is the schooling opportunities
for PAs, as well as the different programs they can invest in and tuition costs/ fees. The potential quotes I
will use will relate to these topics, such as PAs conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses,
order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and in virtually all states
can write prescriptions (Eugene). In discussing schooling I will be sure to mention pricing by
paraphrasing: School cost are virtually equivalent to normal cost in that tuition is $36,154 for residents
and $43,628 for nonresidents (Eugene). More quotes would include: PAs must graduate from an
ARC-PA-accredited program and pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (Eugene) Four
national PA organizationsthe AAPA, ARC-PA, NCCPA, and PAEA (Eugene) PAs are defined as
health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. (Eugene) PAs
conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive
health care, assist in surgery, and in virtually all states can write prescriptions. (Eugene). This source is
extremely credible in that it is posted on a scholarly journal website recognized by all sorts of medical
professionals. It is also published by a credible, recognized author. This source is the most helpful one I
have found so far. It relates to the entirety of my topic, and I can incorporate it throughout my project as a
main source. I would especially like to use it to address more students and give them a better grasp of the
subject. It adds scholarly information and resources to gather from.
