    Hi Paul,
    Amazing video. Very informative, I think I found my calling in life. The one thing you didn't mention, though, was the time, on average, it takes to get a job after graduation. Can you please share this statistic? Thanks Paul.

    I see lots of gender gap questions and I would like to point out that the field isn't sexist it actually has a lot to do with decisions couples consciously make, for instance more couples choose to live where the husband finds the best job, more couples choose to have a new mother take time off from work after having a baby and many couples choose to have the mother cut back on her hours so she can be there more for her kids. so like most fields you find men accumulating more experience in a shorter time as well as on average working more hours a week. Every couple who wants to bring kids into the world has their own priorities and often times a women's earning potential is sacrificed to support their family and that's one of life's big tradeoffs that comes down to a personal decision

      Yes it is SEXIST. When the job's salary goes higher when males are more. What you have said is barely anything. In these times, women work the same hours in the same job, there are nannies also.

      Dorthy Savage tbh for pa major isn't a huge deal as long as you meet the requirements for the pa school you want to attend. A science related major is good bc it'll give you a base on what you'll learn in the future. Also it's a great tip to do a minor and differentiate yourself from everyone else.

      You don't need to become a PA to make a decent living. There's so many professions out there that pay good money. I became a PA and only practiced 2 years and then actually went back to school, because I found a new passion. Don't get me wrong I loved the challenge of working with patients and medical staff, learned a lot, took a lot of verbal abuse.... from patients, family members and coworkers. However in the end I decided to move into starting my own business, after I went back to school after my time as a PA.
      You have to have the passion for helping people if you go into any profession in the medical field. I think too many people get into the medical field just for the money, and not giving a damn about people's feelings. It was easy for me to spot these fake medical professionals and that's a huge reason why I followed a different dream that became a reality in the end.
      Go with what your heart says and not where they money is at.

      DO NOT become a teacher! Both of my parents are teachers and they get really stressed out. They always have to bring their work home (grading), and they have to deal with whiney kids all day. Yes, they get the summer off, but then they have to budget themselves. I highly recommend not becoming a teacher.

    Get very clear on what the schools that interest you are looking for in terms of health care experience. Then go out there and get that experience. Then write an essay that shows what you have to offer from your previous experiences - you have a lot more than the 20-somethings, but you need to help them see it.

University? What are my rights and benefits if I do go to such a provisionally approved school PA program? Can I get licensed as PA after graduating from such a provisionally approved PA program? How long does a "Accreditation-Provisional" PA prorgram.school take to get to a "Full-Accreditation" status ( I know that it may depend on the school etc.)?

    Are these salaries that you're talking about before or after taxes? Because if a PA makes about $100,000 a year, they're actually earning about 75-80k because of taxes right? Which makes it difficult to pay back loans when you have a family and a mortgage and stuff like that right?

      You pretty much need to get a research job, which is hard to do, or work in a clinic where one of the docs is a "principal investigator." In my clinic, my doc does, so I am a "sub-investigator," meaning that I evaluate and treat patients for clinical research studies. I'm not sure how you would find such a job other than 1) to ask the clinics where you are applying "Do you have any clinical trials here" or "Are any of your doctors principal investigators?" You COULD call the big pharma companies, such as Pfizer and ask them who are investigators for their studies, but that would be a very indirect way to go about it.

      Did you read the part of the comment that I stated, "for the most part": when looking at large data sets of statistical analysis there are almost always in a Gaussian distribution. There are always outliers. You, personally, taking time off to raise a family is hardly the average or a representation of the average. I even took the time to raise my daughter and sacrificed heavily time wise to receive my Ph.D but you and I are hardly the norm.
