    How do you plan to continually grow as a physician assistant?

      You have an elevated degree; however, that doesn't mean that you stop learning once you have reached the top. Discuss your plans to take professional courses, obtain new certifications or focus on personal growth. You may also want to mention a class or volunteer position to highlight your commitment to professional growth.

      "I could say that I am interested in taking additional course work and specialised training in post-surgery anaesthetic care. It is important to me that I continue to learn and develop my skills."

      Rachelle's Answer

      It's nice that you offer a specific area of study since this will help the interviewer better understand your areas of interest. If you were to receive specialized training in post-surgery anaesthetic care, what difference would this make for your career, and what you could offer the hiring company?
