Absolutely! Many PAs work in clinic. Primary care is a common setting forPAs.

PAs can work in hospital setting rounding on patients and assisting in the OR.

Yes definitely. There are jobs in local doctors offices, medical offices outside of hospitals. You can also look into nursing homes as they have PA roles too.

Yes, Personal Assistants can work outside a hospital. Other places would consist of Emergency departments, Urgent care centers, surgery centers, community health clinics, retail clinics, nurse managed medical centers, phone triage centers(ability to call and speak with NP or PA to determine simple diagnoses), and rural health care facilities.

Jeff,

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!

Good question!
Kim
