What is a PA-C?
Hey, it says that guy Jordan is a PA-C. What’s the deal with the letters? If you are not sure what a PA-C is, fret not.
Like many people both in and outside of the healthcare industry, you find value in learning something new about the world. That’s why you may be seeking additional clarification regarding just what it means to be a PA (or PA-C).
PAs (physician assistants/associates) are nationally-recognized, state-licensed healthcare practitioners trained at the postgraduate level to diagnose and treat patients, perform medical procedures, and prescribe medication.
The designation ‘PA-C’ (C=certified) is conferred upon those who pass the national certification examination after graduation from PA school, which is required to practice.
Many PAs come from unique healthcare or industry backgrounds before stepping into the role. Our background positions us to work autonomously and collaboratively as part of a patient-centered healthcare team or within higher levels of clinical and healthcare leadership.
You’ll find PAs in clinics, emergency departments, operating rooms, research and development settings, consulting firms, academia, thought-leadership, business, and everywhere in between.
PAs work in every medical and surgical specialty in every state in the USA, and in a growing number of countries globally. PAs have been shown to increase access to healthcare, improve patient and population outcomes, and advance patient satisfaction.
Whether in a clinical or non-clinical role, PAs make financial and clinical sense to every kind of healthcare organization. For more information, visit the official national organization of PAs, the American Academy of PAs (AAPA).
What is Medical Communications?
Medical communications is an important sector within the healthcare industry involved in the development and production of materials that deal specifically with medicine or healthcare.
Therefore, a medical communications consultant, sometimes referred to as a medical writer, is someone who writes, edits, or develops materials about medicine and health. We do this by gathering, organizing, interpreting, and presenting the information appropriately to the target audience.
Quality medical communications consulting services are highly sought-after by industry, academia, and media firms with a general audience. Finding individuals and agencies who can deliver a clear, accurate message to any audience is a massive challenge with important implications.
Who Provides Medical Communications Consulting Services?
Most professional medical communicators have a science or clinical background, although there are many successful individuals in this field who do not.
Medical communicators provide services ranging from publications to promotional medical education and commercial support for companies in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. We may also develop medical education for clinicians, professional societies, and healthcare students.
