Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Physician Assistants with Acute Care skills, experience is not a major factor in determining pay, and incremental pay growth is standard. Starting out, salaries fall in the $88K range but grow to $100K after five to 10 years. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $100K. Physician Assistants with Acute Care skills experience only minor salary growth after working for two decades, bringing in around $103K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 23 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 11 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 14 percent. More than half of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
