Non-Clinical Careers

Recommended Posts

Hello all,  I am currently a PA-S  and I am interested to hear from any of you who work or have worked outside of being a clinician. This could include part-time or full-time positions, in fields such as admin, insurance, pharmaceuticals, management, public policy, or anything else healthcare-adjacent. I am supposed to do a project on this topic and would love to hear from any of you who have utilized their PA education in non-traditional ways. 

Some questions I have for you all:

  • What do you do, and how long have you done it for?
  • How did you get into this position?
  • Do you feel that your PA education was useful or necessary for this position?
  • What further opportunities do you see in your current position (i.e. career advancement, shaping healthcare on a macro level, etc.)

Any insight on these topics would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
