The National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit “Physician Assistants: Collaboration and Care” is now at the LSUHSC-NO Isché Library. The display will be set up in the Library Commons on the third floor of the Resource Center until February 28.
Physician Assistants are nationally certified professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and care for patients, with physician supervision. This exhibit covers the history of the PA profession, the profession’s emphasis on diversity, and the many ways in which PAs care for patients in the United States and across the globe.
Helpful links and educational resources provided by the National Library of Medicine in conjunction with the exhibit include lesson plans for upper elementary and high school classes, a higher education module with instructor resources, and a bibliography of additional readings.
This exhibition was created by the National Library of Medicine with assistance from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Additional information about this exhibit can be found online: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/pa-collaborationandcare/index.html

This January, the LSU Health Sciences Center jumps on the health education bandwagon as it inaugurates a brand-new ARC-PA accredited physician assistant training program. LSUHSCÔÇÖs 29-month program of study in evidence-based medicine will instruct its students in patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment.
Dr. Charles L. Hudson first proposed the creation of a physicianÔÇÖs assistant position at a 1961 meeting of the American Medical Association (AMA) as a way to mitigate the decline in primary care providers. Ranked second in CNN Money MagazineÔÇÖs ÔÇ£Best Jobs in America 2010,ÔÇØ this careerÔÇÖs ÔÇ£average annual pay was $86,410 in 2010 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Federal labor officials projected a 30 percent growth rate in the occupation between 2010 and 2020.ÔÇØ
