HISTORY OF PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT PROFESSION


BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GHANA PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT PROFESSION

The PA profession in Ghana has over the years undergone metamorphorical changes in nomeclature. The name change has at every stage of metamorphosis been occasioned by different reasons. But the main reason has perhaps been because of the expanding roles and responsibilities of the PA in the ever changing face of medical practice and dentistry. Basically, the PA profession has seen three distinct name changes during the many years of its existence; namely
1.Health Centre Suprintendent
2.Medical Assistant

The Ghana Physician Assistants Association formerly known as the Ghana Medical Assistants Association has been in existence for over four (4) decades and had had many leaders.
