AAPA Releases First National Survey of Physician Assistants on COVID-19 Crisis
This survey shows the considerable contributions of PAs and the scale at which they have had to adapt to meet the needs of patients during the COVID-19 crisis. It is the first effort to quantify the experiences of these frontline medical providers.
The survey was conducted on a random sample of PAs over a 12-day period from April 25 – May 6. The survey results reflect PA respondents who indicated they have clinically practiced in the last four months. The survey had a margin of error of +/-3.8% for clinically practicing PAs.
