    what is it like doing PA residency in a specialty field, such as surgery or neurology? How much privilege do they really give you?

    most programs have you function at the level of an md intern with the same level of responsibilty.
    from the website for the pa surgical residency at duke:
    Physician Assistant Residents will be assigned a workload and duties similar to those of first year (PGY1) physician surgical residents. Duties will include history & physical examinations, writing patient orders and progress notes in the hospital record, responding to and evaluating patient problems, making rounds, ordering diagnostic studies, assisting in the operating room, and performing invasive procedures.
