PAs are "physician's assistants." In some states, PAs are a few credits and/or schooling years shy of becoming doctors. Yet, PAs choose not to become doctors for various reasons. If you are training to become a PA, you might be surprised to learn that your education does not end once you have achieved your degree/certification. On the contrary, if you expect to continue working as a PA, you have to log several more hours of continuing education and submit a fee each year.
- Remember all of that math your teachers used to make you do when you were in high school? Beyond telling time, calculating change, and mastering the adult task of paying bills, you were sure you would never use math again. You went into construction or electrical works and did not look back. There is just one problem with that; you use a lot of math in your job all the time! Stranger (and possibly more irritating) still, you have to use a lot of math when you work in rigging and harness equipment.
