National Physician Assistant Week October 6-12, 2021

National Physician Assistant week is celebrated every year from October 6-12. The week is set aside to celebrate and increase awareness of the Physician Assistant (PA) profession. The week serves as an opportunity for PA’s to reach out to the community about health and preventative care.

Physician assistants, are broadly trained in a wide spectrum of conditions and tasks. Their education focuses on patient education, preventive care, and chronic care management. They can help patients improve their quality of life and manage chronic conditions. Physician assistants are unsung heroes and deserve their moment in the limelight, so this week is to celebrate them and be thankful for their efforts.

National PA day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PA’s. October 6th is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Euguene A. Stead, Jr., MD.
