Why I Became a PA

"The length of time in schooling, the cost of schooling, the level of autonomy, the ability to change specialties, respect from staff / peers, annual salary, and training under the medical model are just a few reasons why becoming a PA is the most appealing option to me compared to the other provider roles and allied health fields."

Why Your Job as a PA Matters

A commitment to caring is the foundation of the physician assistant profession – and has been since the profession began. As patient advocates and educators, PAs help people use the health care system more efficiently and effectively.
