In 2019, the National Commission for the Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA), made changes to the PANCE blue print. There is an attempt to blend the academic with a clinical practice. The practice of medicine, as a physician assistant, is much more than antibiotics, pathophysiology of disease and physical exams. Sure, we need foundations; we need building blocks, yet to be a well-rounded provider you need additional skills to embrace professional practice.
The NCCPA has now made these skills required knowledge and will be up to 5% of the PANCE. It’s referred to as “professional practice.” We need to learn such areas as professional development, legal/medical ethics, medical informatics, extraordinary patient care and communication, physician/PA relationship and public health.
This book, Professional Practice for Physician Assistants, provides clear understandings of the core concepts of the professional practice portion of the PANCE. But, our hope is that it’s more than that. Our hope is this book evolves into a mandatory text that all PA’s read to help them thrive!
