The profession of physician assistants is very appealing.

Not only is the training significantly shorter than the typical doctor, what with no internship or medical school but there's also the ability to move from one discipline to another.

On top of this the challenges facing modern medicine are huge...Doctor shortages, aging boomers, never mind the need to curb health care rising costs. And they are not going away any time soon. No wonder the profession of PAs has taken off and is embraced by most health care systems.
