Hello, I am currently struggling to decide which field I want to pursue ( Master's in Health Administration vs Physician Assistant). I want to interact with patients but I also want to focus on managing hospitals and program implementation.

I figured I'd want to be on the business side of health care, which is why I pursued a graduate degree with that focus. I've just started a job working for one of the main hospitals in Charleston, and I'm about 50/50 on it. It's a crazy time and will likely get worse before it gets better. If I am 100% truthful, I have always had my doubts about my choice to pursue administration, from the moment I entered my bachelor's program (health management), all the way through grad school, and to now. I guess I always f
