Physician Extender

Definition

Health Economics

  • While there is no precise or universally agreed definition of the scope of a physician extender's work, the term always refers to a health care professional, such as a registered nurse practitioner or a physician assistant, whose skills have been enhanced by an appropriate course of training. The idea is to substitute some of the extender for some of the physician.
