TFHS Celebrates National Physician Assistant (PA) Week

National Physician Assistant Week with Stethoscope

Tahoe Forest Health System proudly celebrates all physician assistants (PAs) in the community during National PA Week, held every year from October 6-12.

PAs are medical professionals who diagnose illness, develop and manage treatment plans, prescribe medications, and often serve as principal healthcare providers for patients. With many hours of general medicine training, PAs can provide a wide spectrum of patient care.

Practicing in every medical setting and specialty, PAs are dedicated to improving access to care and the quality of health of our patients. Our community is healthier because of them. 

To all of the PAs in our community, thank you!
