In 2006 the Scottish National Health Service began a two-year pilot program to gauge whether physician assistants would be a positive addition to the country's medical community. Eighteen PAs from the United States came to Scotland to participate in the project. Dorothy Armstrong, program director for the Scottish National Health Service, joins host Lisa Dandrea Lenell to talk about the results of the study and the future of PAs in Scottish healthcare.
