There's a proposed Master of Physician Assistant Studies program in the works at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. What is a Physician Assistant (PA) and how is that different from a doctor?

Anne McMillin of the University of Nevada School of Medicine spoke to two authorities to find out more. Brian Lauf is the founding director of the proposed PA program. Joining them is Ruth Ballweg who is internationally known in PA education and a consultant for the proposed program.
