dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to obtain opinions from practicing PAs concerning their knowledge about specialty certification and perceptions about its impact on their practice. This cross-sectional study involved a survey sent to a randomized sample of 3,000 U.S. PAs. Results were analyzed using descriptive and chi-square statistics. The response rate was 11% (n=293). The survey collected respondent demographic information, asked two categorical questions regarding knowledge of specialty certification, and several questions regarding perceptions about certification based on a 5-point Likert scale. Results suggest that although PAs are knowledgeable about the specialty certification issue, the majority do not plan to obtain the certification if offered and view it as a potential barrier to movement between specialties.en_US
