Yes: Many urologists hire pa's to help them see their patients. They work under the direct supervision of the urologist according to state regulatory guidelines. Each state regulation may be different.

Yes: Given both the increasing demand for urological evaluation and care due to the aging population (~10,000 “baby boomers” turning age 65 every day for the next 10-12 years) and increasing shortage of urologists (average age of currently practicing urologists is 55), there is an ever-increasing demand for and use of mid-level providers (physician assistants and nurse practitioners) by urologists.
