I was one.

Actually, Physician Assistant has prescription rights in all states. In
primary care, a PA does almost everything a MD does. It was a quit
satisfying job for me.

Physician assistant is totally different from medical assistant.

Also, physician assistant is quite different from pathologists assistant.

You can easily land a job as a PA in the best hospitals in US with
relatively good pay.

I loved my PA job.

working full-time (32 or more hours per week) was $86,214 (standard
deviation $21,901); the median was $82,223. The mean total income in 2006
was $84,396. Hence, the mean income

=====================================================================
PA Education

Q. How is a Physician Assistant educated?

A. Physician assistants are educated in intensive medical programs
accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the
Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The average PA program curriculum runs
approximately 26 months. There are approximately 140 accredited programs.
All PA programs must meet the same ARC-PA standards.

Because of the close working relationship PAs have with physicians, PAs are
educated in a medical model designed to complement physician training. PA
students are taught, as are medical students, to diagnose and treat medical
problems.

Education consists of classroom and laboratory instruction in the basic
medical and behavioral sciences (such as anatomy, pharmacology,
pathophysiology, clinical medicine, and physical diagnosis), followed by
clinical rotations in internal medicine, family medicine, surgery,
pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency medicine, and geriatric
medicine.

A PA's education doesn't stop after graduation, though. PAs are required to
take ongoing continuing medical education classes and be retested on their
clinical skills on a regular basis. A number of postgraduate PA programs
have also been established to provide practicing PAs with advanced education
in medical specialties.

Q. What are the prerequisites for applying to a PA program?

A. PA programs look for students who have a desire to study, work hard, and
to be of service to their community. Most physician assistant programs
require applicants to have previous health care experience and some college
education. The typical applicant already has a bachelor's degree and
approximately four years of health care experience. Commonly nurses, EMTs,
and paramedics apply to PA programs. Check with PA educational programs of
interest to you for a list of their prerequisites.


Scope of Practice

Q. What areas of medicine can Physician Assistants work in?

A. Physician assistants are found in all areas of medicine. They practice in
the areas of primary care medicine - that is family medicine, internal
medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology -- as well in surgery
and the surgical subspecialties.

Physician assistants receive a broad education in medicine. Their education
is ongoing after graduation through continuing medical education
requirements and continual interaction with physicians and other health care
providers.


Q. Where do PAs "draw the line" as far as what they can treat and what a
physician can treat?

A. What a physician assistant does varies with training, experience, and
state law. In addition, the scope of the PA's responsibilities corresponds
to the supervising physician's practice. In general, a physician assistant
will see many of the same types of patients as the physician. The cases
handled by physicians are generally the more complicated medical cases or
those cases which require care that is not a routine part of the PA's scope
of work. Referral to the physician, or close consultation between the
patient-PA-physician, is done for unusual or hard to manage cases. Physician
assistants are taught to "know our limits" and refer to physicians
appropriately. It is an important part of PA education.

Q. Can PAs prescribe medications?

A. All fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Guam have enacted laws
that authorize PA prescribing. In California, PA prescriptions are referred
to as written prescription transmittal orders.
