How physician assistants help you and your doctor

(Continued)

For those PAs who commit to a medical specialty, the CAQ credential is available in seven specialties: Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Hospital Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, Nephrology, Pediatrics and Psychiatry. CAQs are not needed for certification or licensing by the state, but they recognize PA’s for their additional abilities to perform specialty-focused patient care.

Since it is a matter of public record, anyone can check to see if a PAs certification is current just by entering the name and state on the NCCPA web site at www.nccpa.net.
