Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful to me. It helped make up my mind about what career path to pursue. The authors give insight into the history and future of the PA profession. They give numerous charts and graphs showing statistics on the PA profession as compared to other professions. I especially found it helpful that they compared the Nurse Practitioner to the Physician Assistant, which are two very closely related professions. Before having read this book, I was pretty sure I wanted to become a PA. After reading the book, I further considered the possibility of the NP career. The book definitely is a must read for prospective PA's. I don't think that it would be as enjoyable for current PA's or current PA students though. The information is a bit outdated as far as how many PA programs are accredited as of today and so on but that's to be expected. However, overall, I do recommend this book very much.

Clear, concise and interesting reading. The authors have compiled the most recent data on the profession and present it in a thoughtful and logical fashion. A "must-read" for prospective and current PA students, graduate PAs, physicians and administrators. This book will answer ALL the questions.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By charlesk@pacificu.edu on January 15, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book provided a fascinating and educational read about the Physician Assistant (PA) profession. It included information about history, development, current status, educational process, clinical roles, legal aspects, financial aspects and future direction. The book was remarkably comprehensive, clear and concise, citing hundreds extensively researched studies. As a graduate student in PA studies, the book was of special interest to me. However, the thorough exploration of the dynamic relationships of PAs with other health care professionals and health care organizations leads me to believe that the book would be of interest to a myriad of persons involved in health services delivery and management.

Format: Paperback
Utilizing this book for a course in Health Delivery Systems bring the PA concept clearly into focus for PA students. Practicing Mid-level practitioners, healtcare manageres and physicians will gain a greater understanding of the roots, current utilization and future possibilities of the Physician Assistant. Well-researched and written by two "experts" in the field of Physician Assistant history, utilization and economics. Recommend highly for personal collection or booklist.
