Underutilization of physician assistants in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
This study was undertaken to determine the utilization of physician assistants (PAs) in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R).
Survey questionnaires were sent to members of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, members of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, and administrators of free-standing rehabilitation facilities.
One hundred thirty-seven of 1,082 physiatrists (13% of those responding) reported PAs employed in their practice settings, 83 of 549 PAs (15% of those responding) identified PM&R as their specialty, and 17 of 65 hospital administrators, (27% of those responding) reported PAs working at their working.
