    PA vs AA

    I would imagine a heavier chemistry prerequisite load for AA’s then? At least compared to what I had to take to get into PA school. I need to do research to comment more as AA’s aren’t something that are popular in VA yet (to my knowledge). I’d be interested to understand the difference between the education reqs & job responsibilities between a CRNA & AA though. The kind of $$ EMEDPA mentions for an AA role makes it sound like there’s a lot of risk & responsibility associated w/ the job. While over time some of the tasks may become mundane, the ramp up period is likely to be intense. Perhaps more intense than you anticipate. Talk to some AAs firsthand if you can.

    PA vs AA

    I’m sure I’m not the only person who may have had that question. I’ve never seen these two career options compared, but maybe someone else on here has. I’ll just say there are a couple Surgical Assistants (Masters level graduates) that went back to school to get a PA degree because they wanted more clinical medicine & more continuity of care with patients. Good luck!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Please define AA. There are many acronyms in healthcare and that’s not one I’m familiar with. At least not something I’ve heard about here in VIrginia. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What to do before PA school???

    Do whatever your heart desires...you already have your golden ticket! I had a non-healthcare job for a year before starting school (for financial & other reasons). Best of luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was good & it was hard. I did put in a lot of hours, however, I can’t really quantify that as it’s been a few years ago now & I was taking other prerequisites at the same time. I’m full time in PA school now so I guess it worked out ok. In all honesty- I had a Prof w/ a little bit of a language barrier (all of our communication was written), which was where most of my challenge was. Check www.ratemyprofessor.com before taking the final plunge. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I took a biochemistry class through UC Berkeley Extension program online. They have genetics: https://extension.berkeley.edu/areas-of-study/sciences-mathematics-and-biotechnology.jsp#availableCoursesPSPS0050 Good luck!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
