Three classes of Medex were followed during their prcceptorship training and subsequent employment to assess the impact of adding such physician assistants on 13 private practices. The data suggest that the Medex are readily incorporated into the practice, seeing a similar spectrum of patients and generally functioning as a semicolleague. Although the Medex was almost universally a contributing addition to the practice, increasing patient volume, the specific effects varied with the setting.
