At Amrita Center for Allied Health Sciences, Physician Assistant specialists are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive health care services in virtually all medical specialties, as delegated by a physician.
Working as members of a health care team, they take medical histories, examine and treat patients, order and interpret laboratory tests and X-rays and make diagnosis. They also treat minor injuries by suturing, splinting and casting. PAs record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients, and order to carryout therapy. Additional nonclinical positions are developing for physician assistants.
