” A wage gap between male and female PAs persists even after including all settlement types and controlling for compensation-related elements that might vary in between male and female PAs,” scientists concluded. “Proposed policy implications could begin to mitigate the space.”

After representing a range of compensation-related factors, including specialized, hours worked and management role, the typical female PAs made $113,403.59 in 2018 compared to male PAs, who earned $122,413.17, according to the research study, a distinction of $9,010.

The research, published in the November 2020 edition of the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, is based upon data from the AAPA salary survey taken in February 2019 analyzing salary for 2018. For the 2020 study, survey actions were included from more than 8,300 nonretired, U.S.-based doctor assistants.
