dc.description.abstractA physician shortage currently exists in the United States and is projected to continuefor at leasta decade. Physician assistants(PA)are expected to help fill this healthcare gap,often requiring not just medical competence, but leadership skills. Leadership training is not often a component of PA medical training,and literature onPA leadership is limited. This study investigated a leadership model for PAsrooted in ethical leadership. The PA, asa medical leader,further defined asa learning leader, patient advocate, engaged professional, builder of future professionals, community activist and team collaborator was explored through a concurrent mixed-methods approach thatevaluatedsurvey datacollected from practicing PAs and PA faculty. Of the 681 practicing PAs invited, 107 (16%) participated,and of the 71 PA faculty members recruited, 43 (61%) participated.Results showed alignment in responses between the twosurveys. The greatest level of alignment was noted for the patient advocate,the team collaborator,and the learningleader,followed by the builder of future professionals and the engaged professional. The greatest amount of contrast between survey findings was with the community activist. Although all areas were supported, moreresearch is needed to further support this model.eng
