post-grading: ayudantes o colaboradores de médicos
Explanation: Aquí en USA, un "physician extender" es un(a) enfermero/a (NP) o una persona con título de PA. Ambos son títulos terciarios (de college), no universitarios.
Los NP's y PA's no tienen el entrenamiento ni habilitación legal que tiene un MD o un DO (a quienes por lo tanto los physician extenders no pueden reemplazar legalmente, excepto en circunstancias especiales y a corto plazo).
("Sustituto" [substitute] implica "reemplazante". De utilizar el término "sustituto" para traducir "physician extenders", debería acompañarse de la palabra "parcial": "sustituto parcial").
What is a Physician's Assistant?
Physician assistants (PAs) provide health care services with supervision by physicians. They should not be confused with medical assistants, who perform routine clinical and clerical tasks. PAs are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive health care services, as delegated by a physician. Working as members of the health care team, they take medical histories, examine patients, order and interpret laboratory tests and x- rays, and make diagnoses. They also treat minor injuries by suturing, splinting, and casting. PAs record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients, and order or carry out therapy. In 46 States and the District of Columbia, physician assistants may prescribe medications. PAs may also have managerial duties. Some order medical and laboratory supplies and equipment and may supervise technicians and assistants.
Physician assistants always work with the supervision of a physician.....
