licorice24 Posted June 7, 2011 Share Posted June 7, 2011 Hi all, I've been contemplating going to PA school since I graduated college in 2009. Recently, I've noticed that I can never explain why I want to be a PA without mentioning why I don't want to go to med school or be an MD - and that scares me. In the end, my reasons sound more pathetic than anything. I just turned 24, have no children, or commitments. A PA, whom I'm currently shadowing, suggested I try for med school instead of PA school because of my latter characteristics. I truly enjoy medicine and I can't see myself doing anything else, but I lack the passion required to to pursue an ~8yr med school education and the confidence to be a "leader" in medicine. Was or is anybody in the same boat as me? I'm hoping somebody here can offer advice or comment regarding my dilemma. Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
