  1. Thank you, I ask because I am starting a new job soon in internal medicine and really want to thrive and be an excellent PA.

  6. In need of some guidance. I have been a PA 6 years and have had 4 jobs since then. I was never the type to know exactly which field/specialty I wanted be in, I felt like primary care was probably the right place for me which is where I am now but I am struggling, my confidence is lacking and patients can see that.
