TheLastStone Posted August 4, 2017 Share Posted August 4, 2017 So, I'm still in undergrad with a few semesters to go, but I am a tad bit older, have worked other careers and gained a lot of experience doing things I love outside of healthcare. I'm curious what I can expect as far as being to dedicate time to some of the hobbies I love while being a PA. I've been a race car driver throughout my life, and I plan to keep doing it, especially when established in the PA field, but unsure of what kind of time I could expect to be able to put into it without stepping on toes with superiors and colleagues. Some races require me to test and practice for hours a day, and if it's a summer shootout or other series, I could go days at a time out of state at a track. Is this something I will probably have to give up? I know I could run local races, but I'm just curious with the kind of schedules that y'all have, if it's possible to be away from your job to race like that. The only circumstance I could imagine that working is if I did 3 days on and 4 off or something like that? I could be wrong about schedules like this.. But I've seen those kind of schedules run in certain EMS agencies so I didn't know if that's something that is done with PAs. Obviously, not in a clinic setting, but if I was in surgery or EM or something like that, would it be possible? Again, just curious.
