Military Medic to Physician Assistant

The physician assistant profession was founded on the need to provide a pathway for qualified medics and corpsmen into civilian-based medical careers. The University of Washington PA training program, MEDEX Northwest, was in the forefront of this movement. This video follows four current day PA students as they transition from medically trained military personnel during the time of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, to their new careers as civilian physician assistants. In contrast, we hear origin stories of the profession from four members of MEDEX Class 1 (1969), who all came to this new occupation after service during the Vietnam War. Each generation describes the role the military played in shaping their career in medicine, and how the PA profession answered that call.
