Things to Consider Before Committing to the Medical Field:
(Advice from one of our PAs)
1st, are you pretty clear about your professional direction as this time? What I mean is, have you carefully looked at becoming a Physician as opposed to a Physician Assistant? Cost? Time in school? Profession status? Lifestyle? Specialties? State practice statutes? Job availability? Programs you are interested in and what is required for you to attend??
2nd, if you wish to pursue a career in medicine, you may wish to try and gain employment for several months as a 'scribe'. This is a superb program exposing you to the REAL medical world, e.g. EMERGENCY MEDICINE, allowing you to gain familiarity with electronic medical record keeping, the entire pt. evaluation and treatment process, pathology, medications, prescription writing, social and environmental issues affecting pt care, etc. If you are interested continue with the application process.
