Beside above, do PAs have a lot of debt?

Over three-quarters (76.4%) of PA students anticipate accumulating at least $50,000 of additional debt for their PA school education, with nearly 39% expecting to borrow more than $100,000. It has become expected that debt is just part of the process, but it does not have to be.

Just so, how much debt does the average PA student have? The survey found that 21.9 percent of physician assistant debt coming out of school was between $100,000 to $125,000. Around 20.8 percent of newly graduating physician assistants had between $75,000 to $100,000 in debt, and 14.5 percent had $50,000 to $75,000 of debt upon graduating.
