What are some back up professions or careers?

What is it like going to a BS/MS PA program like? Should I chose this route instead of taking a more traditional entry into the PA profession?

Has COVID-19 affected the way a dermatologist is able to see their patients?

With a lot of businesses and schools closing down, everyone is pretty much trying to stay home and avoid contact with anyone from outside. I assume this has affected the way dermatologists and other doctors see their patients. #doctor #healthcare #medical #medicine #dermatology...
