PA gender statistics

Recommended Posts

72% of PA applicants are female. I look at the pictures of graduating PA classes and it seems to be all females with 3-4 males sprinkled in.


Speech/OT/PT are also overwhelmingly female.


Like someone else said these types of professional careers are great options for women because they don't take 10+ years like MD/DO does.


First PA I met was a woman who was a former RN. She's the one who got me interested in the profession.
