Physician Assistants (PAs) are Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) who work under the supervision of a physician to treat patients in a wide variety of healthcare settings  including hospitals and doctors’ offices, urgent care and rehabilitation facilities, and more. Advanced Care Professionals performing as primary care clinicians and medical assistants have served the Canadian Armed Forces (CF) since the 1900’s as Sick Berth Attendants or Military Medics.

In 1984, the Canadian Armed Forces adopted “Physician Assistant” as the role for senior medics bringing it to the attention of physicians across Canada. In 1991, the Canadian Armed Forces officially changed the name of the Senior Medical Technicians or 6B medic to Physician Assistant.  The Canadian Military PA graduates are the first formally trained Canadian PAs.

In 1997, Warrant Officer Thomas Ashman and other senior PAs conceived the idea of a National Academy of Canadian PAs. In October 1999 the Canadian Academy of Physician Assistants (now the Canadian Association of Physician Assistants – CAPA) was formed with support of the Canadian Armed Forces.  Thomas Ashman was elected founding president.   CAPA’s goal was to be a national professional organization that advocated for Physician Assistants and represented its membership across Canada
