Hello, I recently made a post yesterday and got some great feedback. You can read more about my background and thoughts there. Feel free to give more insight. I am reading all comments and using it sort of as a guidance in making a serious life decision. You can check it here:
However for the professional PA's who are currently working, my main question for you today is:
Are you satisfied as being a PA? What are some things that Physicians do that you can't in your specialties? Give me concrete examples!
A lot of people say autonomy, wide scope of practice, vertical mobility, etc. But what exactly are those day-to-day job differences or limitations that you have noticed in your specialty as a PA? Or do you feel like you have full autonomy?
I am interested in either Internal Medicine (Hospitalist) or Emergency Medicine. But if it's pretty much 90% of the same job as Physicians, then I am not sure if 7 years of medical school is worth it for me. I know people usually recommend PA to MD mostly if you want to go into either surgery or a specialization of some sort.
Can't wait to read your thoughts! Hopefully your comments and answers will give me and others in similar situations a strong resolution.
So I've been doing a lot of research trying to see if it is feasible for me to be a physician's assistant. I am an ultrasound technician/ back office manager and have shadowed with many hours with other PA's, NP's and Dr.'s. I have clinical hours needed. I have a lot of humanities and general courses needed as the pre-requisites. I am currently enrolled at a community college to get some of the science pre-requisites needed. I have been contacting admissions at different schools to make sure my classes completed would be sufficient. I also have my bachelor's degree in healthcare management through Platt College. Admissions at Marshall B. Ketchum verified my transcripts and told me that unfortunately my bachelor's degree is Nationally-accredited and NOT regionally-accredited. It seems like most PA programs are the same. Now I'm not sure if this is something I can do while working full-time and having a 2 year old. I'm stuck with trying to see if anyone has had something similar happen to them or any advice. I don't think it would make sense financially to get a whole other bachelor's degree from a four year university. Also I would need night and weekend classes and that seems impossible with regular UC's. The only other option I could think of is taking my science pre-requisites at community college still and then getting a bachelor's degree online. However, I'm not sure which online schools would be sufficient for the regional-accreditation and also be a reasonable price. I'm thinking of another healthcare management degree or something related since it technically doesn't need to be science based. Just a bachelor's degree with the right accreditation. Any advice for my situation?
