Dr. Voss oversee's other healthcare providers at the clinic. Many of the doctors you will meet are Assistant Physicians (AP). Assistant Physicians are Medical Doctors (MD) and Doctors of Osteopathy (DO) who graduate from a 4-year medical school program but do not complete a residency program.
Residency that traditionally follows a physicians path to licensure prepares them to work in a specific specialty such as Internal Medicine or Cardiology. MDs and DOs who do not complete residency become licensed as Assistant Physicians and work under supervision of a collaborating physician.
APs are often confused with Physician Assistants (PAs); However, APs have an additional 2 years of extensive clinical training which covers all areas of medicine. This training allows APs to practice primary care with collaboration of a Supervising physician. This collaboration allows for a higher level of service than working alone.
