Clinical Assistants

Clinical Assistants (CAs) are highly skilled health professionals with health care/medical backgrounds that provide medical services under the supervision of a licensed physician. The principal difference between a CA and a PA is that CAs are not graduates of a PA degree program.

All CAs are required to undergo an assessment of their skills before they are eligible for registration with the CPSM. This assessment is conducted through the Department of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at the University of Manitoba. For more information on assessment requirements, please visit the Univeristy of Manitoba website.
