A Pathologists’ Assistant (PA) is an intensively trained health professional who provides anatomic pathology services under the direction and supervision of a pathologist. Pathologists’ assistants interact with pathologists in the same manner that physicians’ assistants carry out their duties under the direction of physicians in surgical and medical practice. Pathologists’ Assistants, though they do not diagnose, are an integral part of the anatomic pathology team. The PA’s contribute to the overall efficiency of the pathology practice in a cost effective manner by performing a variety of tasks, consisting primarily of gross examination of surgical pathology specimens and performance of autopsies.
