How To Become A Physician Assistant
Do you want to learn more about the physician assistant profession, and what it takes to become a physician assistant?
Do you feel overwhelmed trying to figure out if you want to become a physician assistant and how to become one?
I 100% understand. I am one of THE ONLY people in my immediate family who is in the healthcare industry. Honestly, most don’t understand it- Ha!
I did not even find out about the physician assistant profession until my last year of college. I instantly KNEW I wanted to shift from my medical school path to become a physician assistant. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to learn more about my path to PA.
I was overwhelmed in where to start, and felt alone. Yes, there are online resources with incredible amounts of information, but that made me feel even more anxious - trying to make sure I read every single detail on every single webpage.
I want you to know that it is going to be okay because there is a solution.
