MD versus PA versus NP versus CRNA!
Any advice would be appreciated! My S (currently a Junior) is very interested in the medical field.
However he is not sure which medical profession to major in and some schools ask kids to decide by Nov of their senior year if they want to pursue PA school or become a nurse practitioner! He has spent last summer volunteering in our local hospital in the dementia ward so he has some experience in a hospital setting. UConn has an excellent summer program that looks into the many fields of medicine to give students further insight into which field they may want to study, however its full for this summer - and there are really no programs anywhere else like it in the New England area from what I can find. Also while he is looking into shadowing medical professionals but the confidentiality rules make that difficult to do. Any ideas on how to give him an insight into what he may want to study/become? My H and I just don't want him to spend a few years at college spending a lot of money without having a really good idea of what he should pursue.
