The day-to-day work of a Physician Assistant (PA) in many ways mirrors that of a full-fledged doctor. They diagnose and treat patients, order tests such as X-rays and blood work, and prescribe medications. Some even assist in surgeries.
Physician assistants perform those tasks under the supervision of a physician or surgeon, which allows PAs to start practicing medicine after completing a two-year post graduate training program rather than spending four years in medical school.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for PAs holding master's degrees is around $90,930 annually. Demand for licensed PAs is expected to climb 38% by 2022, much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations. That means that employers are expected to create about 28,700 new PA jobs in the coming years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
