Physician assistants (PAs) work in primary, specialty, and long-term care, providing patient services under the supervision of a licensed physician.
Their scope of practice includes performing routine examinations, diagnostic tests, rehabilitative and preventive health care, health screening, management of therapy for chronic health problems, minor surgical procedures, assisting with surgery and issuing prescription orders and medications. They support and consult with the physician regularly.
Marshfield Clinic is affiliated with many educational institutions and provides physician assistant students with clinical experiences necessary to complete their education.
Physician assistant students may be able to choose from a number of electives. Contact a
Division of Education program specialist for availability.
Housing may also be available for physician assistant students in a credited clinical program. Before Marshfield Clinic provides clinical experiences to students,
eligibility requirements must be approved by the Division of Education.
Do not assume an educational request has been approved until you have received confirmation from Marshfield Clinic Division of Education. If you have questions, please contact a
Division of Education program specialist.
