Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Physician Assistants with Acute Care skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $87K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $99K. Those with 10 to 20 years of experience under their belts can expect their paychecks to flourish around the six-figure median of $100K. In the end, the overall pattern seems to be that more experience generally corresponds to higher pay; a Physician Assistant with more than 20 years of experience can earn $104K on average.
