  1. Good Afternoon, I'm currently a college student taking pre-med courses. However, I'm unsure about whether I want to go to medical school or Physician Associate school. Regardless of which career path I take I know I want to work in emergency medicine. I've talked to a couple of doctors, and presented them with my dillema. Both gave me very different answers.

  4. Thanks for the advice. Using my GI bill for grad school is an excellent idea. I'll look into that asap. Do you really think the wait time to get into physican assistant school would really be 1-2 years?
  5. Hello everyone. Let me jump in by first presenting the question, should I go to nursing school before PA school? I'm a veteran utilizing my GI bill and I just got accepted to a nursing program. However, my end goal is to become a physicians assistant. I initially thought that it would be wise do get a bachelors in nursing and then apply to PA school.
