PAs are trained in intensive education programs accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).Because of the close working relationship the PAs have with physicians, PAs are educated in the medical model designed to complement physician training.

To maintain their national certification, PAs must log 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years and sit for a recertification every six years.
