A Shared Health Service
Skip to Content
Physician Assistants / Clinical Assistants

Clinical and physician assistants are healthcare providers who practice medicine under physician supervision. These medical practitioners are “physician extenders”, which augment a physician's practice. Clinical and physician assistants practice medicine autonomously, but not independently. The supervisory relationship between physicians and both CA/PAs is mandated through regulations and is the principle on which the profession is founded.

Clinical and physician assistants improve access to healthcare services, assist in waiting time reduction, provide both acute and chronic disease management and enhance the collaborative practice model with other healthcare professionals.
