Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed by all 50 states to practice medicine in collaboration with a physician. PAs in dermatology evaluate, diagnosis and treat a broad variety of conditions that are treated both medically and surgically. They also perform screening exams, preventive care and education for dermatologic patients and families. Building on their primary-care training and experience, PAs are trained in dermatology in a variety of ways. Most dermatology PAs are trained in the clinic by the collaborating dermatologist and together the physician-PA team will decide the practice style, collaboration agreement, and delegation of services which they find appropriate for their practice.
To remain nationally certified, Lisa must: Complete100 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) every 2 years as well as sitting for Physician Assistant National Recertifying Exam (PANRE) every 10 years.
