Registering as a physician assistant

If you want to register as a physician assistant and you obtained your diploma more than 5 years ago, you must meet additional requirements. You can register if you meet the work experience requirement or the training requirement. These are the same requirements that apply to re-registration

Work experience requirement

Over a 5-year period, you must have worked 2,080 hours as a physician assistant. Work experience will only count if it meets the requirements of the Physician Assistants’ Evaluation Framework [in Dutch].

Training requirement
