For the 2015 Canadian Association of Physician Assistants Annual Conference in Toronto, ON, I presented a session on Launching Your PA Career on October 24, 2015 with Kevin Kendal, CCPA. We had a few PA students attend from University of Toronto, McMaster and the Military. The session was very early in the morning (7 am) following an intense Game 6 with the Blue Jays so we suspected attendance wouldn’t be high, but it was actually a good turnout!
We were advised approximately 10 minutes to present, so included as much as I could that I felt was relevant and generalized to PAs in different practice settings based on my experience working in Ontario.
We fielded a few questions from the audience in the end, and I left feeling like it was a productive session!
Hi! I’m Anne, a Canadian Certified Physician Assistant working in Orthopaedic Surgery.
I’ve been writing about my PA experience since starting my PA journey and I’m excited to share CanadianPA.ca as a resource to help you learn about the role and impact of Physician Assistants in Canada.
This blog is my way of helping you, the way others have helped me, discover the PA profession and pursue a career that I love.
