Time between residency and graduating in Physician Assistant Residency Posted June 30 On 6/5/2020 at 9:46 AM, LT_Oneal_PAC said: Find another job, PA or otherwise. Remember, it’s business. A job wouldn’t hesitate to let you go after 6 months if it benefited them and you’ll make them far more money than they lose. On a similar note: when interviewing for other new grad jobs and they ask, would you answer truthfully that you're applying to residencies? I feel like that would be a dealbreaker for the employer, knowing that you might leave the practice for a residency shortly after.
