Can a PA get a job outside a hospital?
PAs can work in hospital setting rounding on patients and assisting in the OR.
As a patient, I have had some excellent PAs! One was in my primary care doctor's office. Others have been in specialty practices, including Rheumatology and Orthopedics. They are very knowledgeable people! In my Rheumatologist's office, my visits are alternated between the Dr and the PA. In my Orthopedic Dr's office, he allows his PA to assist with surgery (although, this particular PA was previously a combat medic, so that might have something to do with it).
In fact, I have never encountered a PA at a hospital!
