Let me enlighten you naysayers regarding the PA profession/education. The two year training is on a post graduate level. PA students have obtained a 4 year science degree prior to admission to the programme. During those two years they are undergoing ninety weeks of study which combines the theoretical and scientific basis of medicine with clinical experience. They then take a national exam and must undergo a re-certification assessment every 6 years and well as maintain CPD hours. They have worked hard for their degree, love what they do and deserve some respect
