Surgical PA Specialties

According to the AAPA, 25% of PAs have a general surgery specialty or surgical subspecialty.

Surgical PAs are able to work anywhere the supervising surgeon has practice privileges.
A strong background in family practice or internal medicine is helpful for any PA seeking specialty work. This foundational knowledge is invaluable in both the clinical and hospital settings. Many surgeons seek well-rounded PAs so they can augment their own specialty knowledge with current generalized practice skills.
