navyflyPAC Posted January 25, 2012 Share Posted January 25, 2012 Hello. I posted this question on a different forum and hadn't heard much. Just maybe a visibility thing. I was wondering what specialties (or fields) you need to complete a residency in, so that you can work or be hired. I will be a new grad following a year of rotations next year. Thus far, throughout my PA education, no one has addressed residencies or a need for them. I'm just curious what your take is on this. I'm an older student (former breadwinner of the family), and as you can imagine, my couple years off from the workforce has already put our family life in a pinch. I can't imagine having to do a year or more of residency with low-no compensation after I graduate. So, can anyone let me know what my options are professionally without a residency? Or are there residencies that pay, and what is an average income during a paid residency? Lengths of residencies? Thanks so much for any advice.
