I'm one of those students, like many others, that once had their minds set on going to an osteopathic career. After talking with and advisor from a DO/PA school, I'm having second thoughts. He talked to me about going for a career as a PA. The positives = Less school, more flexible hours when you work, and decent pay. The reason why these seemed so intriguing to me is because I really dont like school to much and I dont want to spend most of my life trying to get a career. A lot of DO students study almost all day then go onto residencies. Anyways, I was wondering, what changes do I need to make to my school schedule (classes and required tests). Also... what are the minus' to choosing PA over DO?
