How Much Does a PA Make Per Year? Average PA Salary?

The employment outlook for physician’s assistants (PA) are good, with a projected growth rate of 15% for the current decade. The relatively low educational requirement and high salary potential have created special interests in physician’s assistants’ careers. On average, a physician’s assistant earns $80,000 per year. They mostly work in hospitals, healthcare centers and physician’s offices. A bachelor’s degree in Science is the basic educational requirement, while a master’s degree is preferred. Physician’s assistant provides treatment to patients as directed by a physician. They also administer therapeutic procedures to patients. A PA typically completes a 2-year program to get licensed.
