Nope. ECFMG is great in applying to residency and thats about it. For PAs, we need to apply and go through the same process as anyone else appying to PA school. There is no special treatment or short cuts for MDs. You'll take every courses and clerkship as others. Then be allowed to write their exam in 2 years.

I've heard back in the day, like 10 years ago IMGs just needed to pass a PA exam and could practice as a PA. Sadly, not anymore.
