Physician assistants practice medicine under the supervision of physicians and surgeons and are formally educated to examine patients, make diagnoses, and provide treatment.

The median annual wage for a physician assistant is $90,930, with hospitals, outpatient care centers, offices of health practitioners, educational services, and government being the top industries for a physician assistant.

To become a physician assistant, one must obtain a master’s degree from an accredited educational program, after earning a bachelor’s degree and having some healthcare-related work experience. Usually, these degrees have a focus in science, and many applicants have prior experience as a registered nurse or paramedic.
