Keywords:Netherlands, Physician Assistant
The PA profession was introduced to the Netherlands in 2001 as a temporary pilot. In 2003, the Universities of Nijmegen and Utrecht launched the first accredited PA Master’s degree programs in the country. This was followed by programs in Amsterdam, Groningen and Rotterdam. The number of programs is limited by the government and students enrollment is capped at 250 to 270 per year. Since July 1st, 2018 the title “Physician Assistant” in the Netherlands is a protected title that only PAs can use who successfully completed an accredited Master’s degree in Physician Assistant.
