Pre-Physician Assistant Conference

I have been working hard with a PA here in Long Beach, and other Pre-PA, PA-S and PA-C to put on a Pre-PA conference.  It is the first of its kind that I know of and I am very happy to announce it on here!

The Physician Assistant Profession- A vital piece to complete the puzzle of health care reform.
The United States Department of Health predicts a physician shortage over the next decade. In order to help improve the quality and continuity of care for patients, the role of a Physician Assistant is anticipated to be the cornerstone for the future of health care.

The Physician Assistant profession is considered to be one of the fastest growing professions in the United States. The 2009 census reports that 72, 433 individuals are eligible to practice as PAs. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that the number of PA jobs will increase by 27 percent between 2006 and 2016. The BLS also predicts the total number of jobs in the country will grow by 10 percent over this 10-year period.
Money magazine ranked The PA profession #2 in their 2010 issue of “Best Jobs in America.”
"Physician Assistant Studies" Ranked #1 in 2011 Forbes "Best master's degree for jobs."
