Content Blueprint for PANRE

This content blueprint provides information on how exam questions are allocated to the different content categories on PANRE. The blueprint is the culmination of an extensive multi-year initiative to gather feedback from certified physician assistants, including data from the most recent practice analysis, various work groups, and a profession-wide survey to identify the core medical knowledge deemed important to all certified physician assistants, regardless of their practice discipline or setting. On that survey, PAs provided detailed feedback on whether specific diseases and disorders were considered to be part of core medical knowledge and, if so, the level at which each disease and disorder should be assessed. The new blueprint is designed to be more closely aligned with the feedback received from PAs throughout this process.
