National Physician's Assistant Day celebrates and recognizes the importance and skills of this career. The highly trained Physician's Assistant is an invaluable aide to physicians and general practitioners.

The profession of Physician's Assistant was created in 1965 by Dr. Eugene Stead at Duke Medical Center. The first physician assistants graduated from Duke University on October 6, 1967. Since then, this job has grown to tens of thousands of people.

If you see your Physician's Assistant today, wish him or her a happy day. And, let them know they are appreciated.

Physician Assistant Day

Origin of National Physician's Assistant Day:

We believe that the American Academy of Physician's Assistants (AAPA) created this special day. While their website does not come out and claim to have created this day, they do sponsor National Physician's Assistant Day, and National Physician's Assistant Week.
