CERTIFIED PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT AT TRI-COUNTY HUMAN SERVICES NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED
Johns Creek, GA, Feb. 10, 2017 – Jamie L. Durchin, PA-C, was recently awarded a specialty credential called a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
Durchin received the CAQ in Psychiatry, a distinction earned by meeting licensure, education and experience requirements and then passing a national exam in the specialty. She is one of only 13 Certified PAs in Florida to earn a CAQ in Psychiatry since the program’s inception in 2011.
“Certified PAs are prepared and proven providers who contribute real value to the healthcare of this nation,” says Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C, president and CEO of NCCPA. “They graduate from demanding masters-level programs, pass a rigorous certification exam, and maintain certification at the highest level through continuing medical education programs and retesting throughout their careers. Certified PAs increase access to care for patients in every specialty and clinical setting, including those that are historically underserved.”
CAQs are offered to Certified PAs in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, orthopaedic surgery, nephrology, pediatrics and psychiatry.
