Overview
You blunder into the grand opening of a new hospital, sign up to volunteer and, with considerable reluctance, let yourself be assigned to the ER. What starts as a Monday evening lark eventually becomes a life-changing experience. Your new course leads from the ER to becoming a volunteer EMT and, later, a paramedic and a perennial night school student. Eventually, at an age when others might be thinking of retiring to play golf, you quit your job, move away from home, and go back to college as a physician assistant student with strangers less than half your age. This book details the often humorous experience that follows from a perspective that hopefully will help others follow their own paths, whatever they may be. Along the way, new experiences evoke old memories, while new friends, teachers, and patients teach important new lessons. The book comes full circle with a view of what it is like to be a PA, one of U.S. News & World Report's "50 hottest careers."
