Break from work

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just wanted some advice. How detrimental to my career would it be to not work straight after PA school if I had to move for a year or two internationally? In Singapore PA is not recognized so I would not be able to work there. But after moving back to America, I would be able to start applying for jobs. Also is there any option that I could still keeps practicing my skills while in Singapore? Would love any advice!

I spent three years doing mostly nonclinical (more public health) work overseas. Moved  back to the US and had to go straight (2 days later) to take my NCCPA exam (which I was sure I would flunk) but did fine on it. Took a 3 week ER medicine course and was right back in the saddle in FM/ED without a problem.
