WILKES-BARRE — Tiffany O’Donnell and Rachael Rugletic, both of Clarks Summit, completed the physician assistant (PA) master’s degree program at King’s College. Physician Assistants are health care providers who have gone through training in order to work in the health care field. They can practice in virtually all medical fields, some including, surgery, pediatrics, and family practice. In order to become certified and licensed, a PA must take a test developed by the National Commission on Certification of PAs (NCCPA) once the graduate program is completed. Physician Assistants can perform a variety of tasks within the healthcare realm. Assisting in surgery, interpreting lab test results, diagnosing illnesses, performing physical exams, and prescribing medicines, are just a few of the many.
