I'm in high school and recently (this past year) I've become really interested in medicine. It's slowly climbed up the ladder from being a paramedic to a physician assisant and now I'm contemplating just going the full route to be a surgeon though I'm on the fence.
I was considering physician assistant because it's only 5 years (accelerated program), the hours are good and there were other interests I had. Thinking about it more and more, I realize nothing else I was interested in would compare to the feel of saving a life and the respect you would get.
Would you recommend a physician assistant or just going all the way? I'm so conflicted.
