What Does a Sports Medicine Physician Assistant Do?

A sports medicine physician assistant works under the supervision of a physician to help athletes recover from and prevent injury during the course of athletic training or performance. The job duties of a sports medicine physician assistant are similar to those of physicians: examining patients, ordering tests or X-rays, making medical diagnoses, and prescribing medication. They may make referrals to specialists like orthopedic surgeons if an athlete is injured badly enough to need specialized health care.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?
