I'm a med student thats on the verge of being dismissed from med school, It hasnt happened yet but its very likely. I handled the course work in the first 2 years no problem, but I have struggled with the boards. I've been thinking about what else I could do and Anesthesia Assistant came up as an option. My GPA and MCAT are very competitive for programs and I have all the supplemental things needed to apply. My only concern is the limited practice geography or opportunity. I see that many of the states where AAs practice are located in the southeast which is great that is where I'm from and where I want to live, my top 4 states would be NC, TX, GA, FL I wouldn't mind living in Missouri either. But with the limited amount of practice states and competition from CRNAs is it harder for AAs to find jobs?
