In 2008, Manitoba created the Physician assistant program. In 2017, the name of the program was changed to "Master of Physician Assistant Studies."

Physician assistants are medically educated "generalists" who practice medicine within a formalized relationship with physcians.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba regulates them. They are called Associate Regulated Members.
