Stark differences exist in EDs across the United States with regard to scope of practice, expectations, team dynamics, and training requirements for PAs and NPs.
Female PAs are paid 89 cents for every dollar that men are paid, according to research conducted by the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Members of the House of Delegates have unanimously approved Optimal Team Practice at the American Academy of Physician Assistants 2017 conference.
