The only people who can answer this with any honesty are PAs who then went on to med school or foreign medical school graduates who become PAs. I know of one medical student who got pregnant and dropped out and went to PA school because she didn’t want to go through residency with a young child.
There are enough people out there who have actually experienced both PA school and medical school that could give you a true account and a realistic comparison. Everyone else is just interjecting their own opinion but really doesn’t have a clue.
