I picked PA for a multitude of factors. I have always been interested in pursuing medicine. Like many other pre-PAs, I was seriously considering medical school until I discovered the PA program.
I love the fact that PAs contribute so much to the healthcare system. I have some family members and people I support at my job with complex health needs, and I have seen the gaps in our healthcare system first-hand.
I appreciate the positive impact PAs have on our healthcare system by decreasing wait times, helping prevent physician burnout, and increasing the quality of care.
“I was ecstatic to find a role where I can practice medicine and make such a great impact on the quality of care people receive.”
The ability to move laterally through specialties was very exciting to me, as I can learn about different specialties and diversify myself as a healthcare practitioner. I am so excited to help trailblaze the profession and be a part of an interprofessional healthcare team!
