Just FYI. If you decide to make the effort to heading toward medical school you should know that you will probably have to lose your PA license to do such. I just found out that none of the incredibly difficult and cutting edge education that I am now getting in med school applies as CME toward my PA certification. I have been told by the NCCPA that I must still get my CME as always from other sources. Can you believe that sh%&??? Instead of modern unbiased science, with proctored exams, the NCCPA would prefer to see me as a poor medical student spend hundreds of dollars to fly to exotic places to listen to canned lectures paid for by pharmaceutical companies, where attendance is never taken and many people ski while earning CME. I now have no doubt that I made the right decision in leaving this organization and running for the hills to be a doctor. Can anyone wonder why docs often feel threatened by PA's when our leaders don't even think a physician education is worthwhile? There is simply no explanation that will suffice here, and I intend to make this problem known to as many physicians and PA's that I can in hope that we can elect some quality NCCPA reps next go around.
