Not only have physician extenders filled the void in patient shortage, but they have also assisted in the responsibility of teaching in the academic facility. Since the inception of physician extenders, numerous articles have been published stating how midlevel providers, including Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs), have been incorporated into the academic center. Still, minimal publications have been shared about the satisfaction of Radiologist Assistants working and training Radiology Residents in the academic center. Therefore, I planned to evaluate how my position as a Radiologist Assistant (RA) has influenced a busy fluoroscopic department at an Academic Pediatric Institution.
