Is PA work considered U.S clinical exp?
I even heard tht working as a Medical Assistant counts as U.S clinical exp? Does anyone know how true is that?
Thnx

Just to clarify, an MD degree from outside of US doesn't qualify one for a PA license. PA undergo certification process somewhate similar to the MDs and its not as simple as verifying your diploma.

yes MD degree from outside US need to take two test here in US and apply for residency. If your score is good enough then most likely you will get the residency easily. Am a Medical Assistant and am planning to do my MD outside US since its very expensive here in US and takes longer to become a MD here is the US. Medical Assistant Salary is very low and there is not much job these days.
