Collaboration has been the foundation of the Physician Assistant (PA) profession since the first three PAs graduated from Duke University’s educational program in 1967. PAs practice medicine as a dynamic part of a team, alongside doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals; and work within diverse communities to treat patients and improve lives by addressing health care shortages. Physician Assistants: Collaboration and Care describes how the profession developed as a solution to meet the social and health care needs of the mid-20th century and continues to evolve today.

The online exhibition features a range of resources for educators and students, including two lesson plans developed for middle and high school courses, and a higher education module for undergraduate and graduate students and instructors.

Physician Assistants: Collaboration and Care is available as a traveling banner exhibition free of charge to interested libraries and cultural centers. Please go to Book a Traveling Exhibition for more information.
