“I decided to further my medical career and become a Physician Assistant so I could increase my knowledge and skill set to continue to provide excellent care for patients. I wanted to take on the role of providing the best standard of care to patients that are in need of my help. Becoming a PA in Orthopaedic lets me work in the clinical and surgical setting to provide better quality of life for our patients.”
