1 year after PA school

   This year flew by. The summer came and went and I find myself celebrating my 1 year work anniversary. I’ve learned a lot this year and I still have lots to learn. Now I have good solid relationships with my supervising physicians and am now comfortable with the different styles they each have. I am more confident, thorough and precise in my history taking, physical exams, choosing what tests to order and determining a treatment plan. I still have to remind myself that I’ve only been exposed to medicine for 3 years and still have lots to learn and relearn. I recognize the patterns of the most common presentations that are admitted to hospital and course of treatment.

This last year was a big learning experience on how to work as a physician assistant as well as how to go back to things I did before entering PA school. This year was a balance of being comfortable in the work environment and starting to focus on other areas of my life. 

My goal for this year is to continually educate myself and hopefully create a Canadian study guide for the certification exam (I know I keep saying this). I would also like to advocate more for PAs in Canada and am hoping to get involved in more research related to PAs in Canada.
