Congratulations to the PA profession, which recently crossed the momentous milestone of reaching more than 10,000 North Carolina Medical Board licensees.

PAs are the most rapidly growing group of medical professionals licensed by NCMB. Over the last decade, the total number of PAs with an active NC license has more than doubled, from 4,751 at the end of 2012 to just over 10,000 as of April. PAs now account for 17.5 percent of NCMB’s total licensee population.

NCMB will join the NC Academy of Physician Assistants in celebrating the milestone on social media. Watch @ncmedboard and @NCAPA1976 on Twitter to follow along.
