  • PAs are employed in 33 different areas within BWH
  • Brigham & Women's Hospital is one of the largest employer of PAs on the East Coast
  • Each year PAs at BWH are celebrated via our annual PA Appreciation event. This event includes a dinner & an awards ceremony where members of the BWH community come together to recognize and celebrate the enormous contributions Physician Assistants make every day.
