5 Admissions PREREQUISITES If you are enrolled in an affiliated physician assistant program, you are eligible to participate in the internship (clinical rotations) of the program at Mayo Clinic by making arrangements through your college program director. You must successfully complete the required preprofessional and professional college course work, as stipulated by your college or university, before you are eligible to complete the internship. POLICIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES The following Mayo School of Health Sciences policies affect applications and admissions to its programs: English fluency Fluency in written and spoken English is essential to succeed in the program and to ensure patient safety. If English is a second language, you must be able to demonstrate fluency. Satisfactory performance on the Test of English as a Foreign Language examination or the Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency must be documented as proof of fluency. Your test results must be less than two years old. Immunization record For the protection of patients, students and employees, and in compliance with state regulations, Mayo Clinic requires students to be properly immunized.

7 Diagnostic equipment and tools may provide technological compensation for some disabilities, but the candidate should be able to perform in an independent manner. Although PAs usually work in comfortable, well-lighted environments, those in surgery often stand for long periods, and others do considerable walking. Schedules vary according to practice setting, and often depend on the hours of the supervising physician. The workweek of PAs in physicians offices may include weekends, night hours, or early morning hospital rounds to visit patients. PAs also may be on call. PAs in clinics often work a 40-hour week. You must be able to perform the essential functions of the profession and meet the standards of the curriculum. Students seeking exceptions to these standards or reasonable accommodations should initiate their request with the program s director. Application Process POSITIONS Each year, students from across the country complete their Physician Assistant Internship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. HOW TO APPLY Our affiliate schools process the admissions and applications for their Physician Assistant programs and work with students to plan their internship (clinical rotations). Step 1: Students who wish to participate in clinical training at Mayo Clinic must complete the Mayo School of Health Sciences online application form and sign an affiliation agreement at least 90 days prior to their appointment. Step 2: The Mayo School of Health Sciences Education Committee reviews and approves the applications and works directly with the affiliate school to place those students accepted. 6

8 Tuition & Financial Aid PROGRAM COSTS Tuition rates are determined by, and paid to, the college or university at which you are enrolled. Mayo School of Health Sciences charges no additional fees for the Physician Assistant Internship. You are responsible for your living accommodations and transportation. You may hold outside employment during the program, if it does not conflict with your program responsibilities. Physician Assistant Career Overview FIELD DESCRIPTION Physician assistants (PAs) provide diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive health-care services under the supervision of physicians. Working as members of the health-care team, PAs take medical histories, examine and treat patients, order and interpret laboratory tests and X- rays, make diagnoses and prescribe medications. They also treat minor injuries by suturing, splinting and casting. PAs record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients, and order or carry out therapy. Physician assistants may be the principal care providers in rural or inner city clinics, where a physician is present for only one or two days each week. In such cases, the PA confers with the supervising physician and other medical professionals as needed or as required by law. PAs also may make house calls or go to hospitals and nursing homes to check on patients and report back to the physician. Many PAs work in primary care areas, such as family medicine, general internal medicine and pediatrics. Others work in specialty areas, such as general and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, orthopedics and geriatrics. PAs specializing in surgery provide preoperative and postoperative care, and may work as first or second assistants during major surgery. PAs also may supervise technicians and assistants. The duties of physician assistants are determined by the supervising physician and by state law. For example, in most of the United States and the District of Columbia, physician assistants are licensed to prescribe medications. Physician assistants should not be confused with medical assistants, who perform clinical and administrative clerical tasks. 7

9 CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Employment opportunities are excellent for physician assistants, particularly in areas or settings that have difficulty attracting physicians, such as rural and inner-city clinics. Employment of PAs is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through the year 2010, due to anticipated expansion of the health services industry and an emphasis on cost containment. Today, more than 45,000 PAs are working across the United States. With the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 48 percent increase in the number of jobs available for PAs through 2008, the job market for PAs is strong in much of the country. Physicians and institutions are expected to employ more PAs to provide primary care and to assist with medical and surgical procedures because PAs are cost-effective, productive members of the health-care team. Physician assistants can relieve physicians of routine duties and procedures. Telemedicine - using technology to facilitate interactive consultations between physicians and physician assistants - also will expand the use of physician assistants. Besides the traditional office-based setting, PAs should find a growing number of jobs in institutional settings, such as hospitals, academic medical centers, public clinics and prisons. In addition, state-imposed legal limitations on the numbers of hours worked by physician residents are increasingly common and encourage hospitals to use PAs to supply some physician resident services. Opportunities will be best in states that allow PAs a wider scope of practice. EARNING POTENTIAL According to the American Academy of Physician Assistants, median income for physician assistants in full-time clinical practice in 2000 was $65,177; median income for first-year graduates was $56,977. Income varies by specialty, practice setting, geographical location and years of experience.
