Hi, I'm posting this here in the hope there may be some doctors or physician associates around! I'm currently a nurse, but for as long as I can remember I've always wanted to be a doctor but told myself I had no chance and wasn't smart enough. Anyhow, I've decided I should just go for it so I at least know I've tried! However, today I found out about Physician Associates. The job seems great and very similar to that of a doctor, so I wanted to ask if anyone here was a phys associate and if they enjoy the job? And if there are any doctors who, if they could go back, would have preferred to have saved time and student debts by being a phys associate instead? If I choose to be a phys associate then I only need to do 2 distance learning a-levels next year, but if I go for trying to be a doctor it's 3 I need to do. While working full time as I'm a single mother who can't afford to reduce hours. I'm worried doing 3 will be near impossible. Any thoughts or advice welcome.
