American Academy of Physician Assistants in Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology is committed to PA and NP students. Education and training are provided through academic lectures and internships. Students who have interned at a board-certified allergist’s office are encouraged to compete for scholarship awards. Our goal is to provide our future colleagues with an understanding of the diseases we treat to the betterment of our patients’ well being.
Applications deadline for the scholarship is June 15th, 2020.
Interested in Practicing in the Allergy & Immunology Field?
Physician assistants (PAs) working in allergy and immunology medicine provide a range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. A recent study confirms the benefits of employing PAs in asthma practices. The study found patient satisfaction higher in practices that employed a PA compared to those that did not. The study also found that physicians working with PAs were highly satisfied with the PAs’ medical knowledge and the level of care they provided.
There are many, many great Physician Assistant programs available throughout the United States.
We encourage prospective PA students to visit the Physician Assistant Education Association website. Select the PA Programs Directory after creating a subscriber account to view a comprehensive list of accredited PA programs available.
