PAI 10 - 06 PNGWhat could be more fun than thinking about what specific specialty in medicine you might want to work in?   Not all physician assistants work in primary care.  Which specialty is for you?

Thinking about it now can save you time and heartache down the line — and it’s fun!  You don’t need to decide until you start practicing, but there are many to choose from and your experience of medicine will be profoundly influenced by what branch of medicine you ultimately choose.

In today’s episode Paul discusses what specialties PAs go into and how to start researching them.

By the way, in the episode I talk about Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers: The Story of Success.  I refer to his premise that it takes 1000 hours of practice to become proficient at a new trade.  I goofed; it’s actually 10,000 hours, which equates to working full time for about 5 years.
