Hi all, I have read this and the PA forum for a long time now, and am in the process of interviewing for PA school now. I like you guys better so i am asking this here
I have always wanted to see patients, but after a couple years as a pharmacy tech, I am in a position thanks to a friend to take a job with a great clinical research/pharmaceutical company with a couple possible tracks (clinical data manager/CRA- in training). There is a lot of room to advance. Assuming I get into PA school, what would be the best course of action? Part of me is ready to get a start on a career, and I know i would enjoy a job with the research side of things, and another part thinks I would want to practice medicine. A realization I just had is that life may just be better for me and my family doing a more 9-5 type job with the research company, and maybe I would be less stressed. Any thoughts?
