NAACLS Accredited Training Programs for PAs

Why Become a PA?

A Pathologists’ Assistant (PA) is a highly trained, allied health professional who provides various services under the direction and supervision of a pathologist. Pathologists' Assistants interact with pathologists in a manner similar to physician’s assistants in surgical and medical practice, carrying out their duties under the direction of their physicians. PAs are academically and practically trained to provide accurate and timely processing of a variety of laboratory specimens, including the majority of pathological specimens. However, choosing to be a PA is something bigger than the tasks associated with it. Watch our video to hear directly from our members about why they chose this profession.
