discussing ethics and professionalism focused specifically for PA students would be helpful to
both them and their educators.
Physician assistants are unique health-care professionals in many ways. During the beginning

The field of movement disorders is relatively broad, encompassing disorders of increased
movement, such as tremors, dystonia, and tics, to disorders characterized by a
paucity of movement, such as Parkinson’s disease. Our understanding of the pathogenic
