I'll cut straight to the chase, I have red-green color blindness (optometrist says it's mild, although sometimes it seems worse than "mild") and I am starting PA school in January. For the most part, it doesn't affect me in my daily activities, however I noticed it's exceptionally difficult to pick up on rashes or to see a sore throat when I worked in pediatrics and the ER. None of the male physicians that I worked with could offer any insight via personal experience or knowing a colleague with color blindness. Yes I checked SDN but they pretty much talk about how it may affect someone entering a surgical specialty which I have no interest in. I emailed one of the clinical professors at the program I'll be attending to see if they can offer an insight, but because of the time zone difference it's still pretty early so I haven't received a response just yet. I think this is the only post regarding the subject on the forum so I'd love to hear suggestions from fellow students or practicing PAs.
