    Which is why I am now determined to become a PA (eventually) so that I can do my small part to help alleviate the lack of primary care providers. And in a single-payer model, PAs and NPs will probably be even more necessary, because we will want to make sure that every single person has good access to a primary care provider. It needn't necessarily be someone with an MD for many ordinary things, but an MD will be available should s/he be needed.

    Yeah, I was going to go into teaching, but a lot of teachers - teachers who like teaching - talked me out of it due to job prospects and petty politics.

      I am still nuts enough to think that any job in medicine is a priviledge, and I encourage you to go to PA school or even consider med school.  But it is also sad to me that good teachers who love teaching discouraged you from becoming a teacher.
