The assignment is a combination of a Journal Article Review and questions related to the chapter reading in the required textbook.

The process of how physician assistant students develop professional identity in the PA (physician assistant) field.

First read chapter 5 in the textbook. The topic here is regarding the process of how all healthcare students

develop their professional identity related to their healthcare profession. This process is occurring now as a

healthcare student and will continue in the future in healthcare professional school.

Following the same instructions (as in previous assignments) for the Journal Article Review (answering all of

the same questions for the Journal Article Review), you will research and find a peer reviewed journal article

that discusses professional identity in healthcare or the development of a professional identity in your healthcare

field. So, if you are pre-physician assistant for example, you would be searching journal articles related to the PA profession.

Answer the questions for the Journal Article Review portion of the assignment utilizing your journal article.
