Item Description

  • This is a position paper produced in 1974 that begins "The Association of Physician Assistant Programs (APAP) is a charitable and scientific organization composed of representatives from member programs ..." After providing a brief background for need of PAs, the paper states that "...the Association wishes to state its position on certain aspects relevant to the PA concept; namely objectives of training, educational settings, educational programs to meet these objectives and utilization." The document ends with three recommendations: (1) refine the PA role in health care delivery and in PA training, especially the area of primary care; (2) strengthening of existing programs having effective affiliations with academic medical centers; (3) that institutions which choose to embark on development of new programs give particular consideration to excellence of training, evidence of need, facilities for training, and current and projected trends in medicine and health care delivery systems
