Wynter’s Answer

This is dependent on the specific specialty you go into. Some departments are higher paid than others but they all eventually make an average of $80,000 a year.

Carmelita’s Answer

Like any other profession, experience, training, specialty, location and demand are factors that determine pay for physician assistants. I have seen in my area (Southeast US, non-metropolitan area with low cost of living), PAs make $60k- 130k. PAs in primary care make far less than those in surgical subspecialties, especially those recently out of training.
