The Wake Forest PA program worked in partnership with Appalachian State University to develop a distant campus in Boone to train primary care physician assistants who could help address the critical need for health care providers in western North Carolina. Projected shortages of primary care clinicians pose serious threats to health care access, particularly in rural areas in the western part of the state, and these underserved counties are the types of locations where the population can directly benefit from physician assistants.
