On the whole, our office is a dynamic place, with scores of visiting physicians, aspiring MEs, medical and PA students, and paramedics rotating through for training each year. The turnover among MLIs is small but noticeable, today amounting to 5 percent every two 36 DEAD CENTER years. But in the early 1990s, when I began, the loss rate was higher because the MLI corps had not been in existence very long and some PAs were picked for it who either decided after a while that they didn’t really like the work, or who in the eyes of the supervisors weren’t up to snuff.

Practically speaking, this means that 90 percent of the time the presenting problems of patients are routine, the sort of problems that PAs are well trained to cope with. If PAs did more of the 90 percent, routine sort of work, it would leave the MDs to concentrate on the 10 percent, the more complex and difficult matters.
