All About Physician Assistant(s)..?

1. How much do they get paid (2008-2009 stats please)? 2. Do they have to get certified every ___ years? If yes, does this mean that they have to give exams everytime? 3. Do they deal with injuries and surgeries? 4. How about the job outlook. are they in demand all the time, good or bad economy? 5. My state college (Riverside Community College) offers an AA degree in PA, is it worth it? Do they still get paid good? I would really appreciate if someone who is already a PA or is studying to be one or knows somebody who is a PA, to help me out here. I am 25 years old and not really decided on what I want to do in life. I really want to make sure that if I do join the PA Program, it is worth it and not a waste. The thing I like about this career is that i don't have to study for 10 years or so, plus its less stressful compared to being a Doctor. And the major part, I get to really help people make my family proud.
