One of his books, Physician Assistants in American Medicine, co-authored with Dr. Roderick Hooker, is assigned reading for physician assistant students and is a valuable reference for those interested in understanding the emergence of the PA profession into the American Health Care System. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the AAPA, was a Primary Care Health Policy Fellow in the federal Health Resources and Services Administration, and is a past president of the Physician Assistant Education Association and the PA Foundation. He has also been president of the Maryland Academy of Physician Assistants, served as its Legislative Chair for five years, and in 2011 was named its Outstanding Physician Assistant of the Year for the second time.

In a panel session on Aug. 16 at the annual conference of the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters in Chicago, Scott Shipman, MD, director of healthcare affairs, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and a researcher at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice; Roderick Hooker, senior health workforce analyst, The Lewin Group; and Fred Donini-Lenhoff, medical education communications director, the American Medical Association, discussed physician supply and demand over the next decade.

...
Mr. Hooker believes the gap between the supply and demand for physician services will be partially filled by PAs and NPs and team-based care. According to Mr. Hooker, data suggests PAs can substitute for a physician in 83 percent of care provided in a primary-care setting. If used appropriately, mid-levels can free up physician time for higher-acuity cases and make physician practices more efficient overall.
The number of PAs reached 74,400 in 2010, compared to 45,865 in 2000. NPs numbered 105,000 in 2009, up from 67,880 in 2000. However, despite these increases, there are still fewer mid-level providers than there is a demand for, said Mr. Hooker. "While physicians are critical to the delivery of healthcare services there are many other players," he said.
