Historical Note

In the 1950s, Duke Hospital took the lead to help solve a growing national problem: demand on the healthcare profession for services and a shortage of all types of health personnel. Dr. Eugene A. Stead Jr., then chair of the Department of Medicine, envisioned a physician assistant (PA) as a way to provide clinical support and to allow rural physicians to leave their practices to pursue continuing education opportunities.

The first PA training program began at Duke University in 1965. In 1967, Dr. E. Harvey Estes Jr. assumed administrative responsibility for the new program and moved quickly to establish the concept in both North Carolina and the nation. The first three PA students graduated from Duke on October 6, 1967.

Prior to 1968, the PA program was based in the Department of Medicine under Stead. Currently, the Duke PA program is a division within the Department of Community and Family Medicine. Program directors include:
  • D. Robert Howard (1968-1972)
  • E. Harvey Estes Jr., MD (1973-1974)
  • Michael Hamilton, MD (1975-1985)
  • Reginald Carter, Ph.D., PA (1985-2001)
  • Justine Strand, M.P.H., PA-C (2001-2003)
  • Patricia Dieter, MPA, PA-C (2003-2013)
  • Karen Hills (2013-2018)
  • Jacqueline S. Barnett (2018-present)
The initial funding for the Duke PA Program came from the National Heart Institute, where Stead was a member of a study section. In December 1966, Stead received a three-year grant from the Josiah Macy Jr., Foundation, and other grants soon followed from the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations and from the Commonwealth Fund. Attempts to solicit funds from federal agencies failed until 1972, when Congress passed the Comprehensive Health Manpower Act. This bill authorized support for PA training, and Duke received its first grant in July 1972.

A series of conferences in the late 1960s and early 1970s promoted the PA concept by addressing fundamental issues such as establishing PA programs and developing appropriate curricula, enlisting the leadership of organized medicine to set accreditation standards for PA education, public and professional acceptance of PAs, hospital credentials, productivity and cost-benefits of using PAs, legislation enabling physicians to use PAs in their practices, third party reimbursement, and professional liability.

The PA profession went from concept to reality in only thirty-five years. There are now more than 38,000 PAs in practice in the United States--more than 1,500 in North Carolina who have established records of service in primary care often in rural and medically underserved areas.

Duke PA graduates founded the American Academy of Physician Assistants, the only national organization which represents PAs in all specialties and all employment settings. They have been instrumental in the development of certification and continuing education guidelines. As directors and faculty members of other programs, they have helped to shape the standards of training for PA students. The Duke PA program continues to rank among the foremost PA training programs nationally.
