PAs may be the principal care providers in rural or inner city clinics and confer with the supervising physicians and other medical professionals as needed or as required by law. PAs also may make house calls or go to hospitals and long term care facilities to check on patients and report back to the physician. They are trained to function in a variety of settings including clinics, hospitals, emergency departments, armed services, and federal and state agencies.
