    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a PA student who wants to work internationally in Costa Rica…

    Additionally – Would be PA be accredited? Where could I find out more info working abroad?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Alexandra!

    A simple search for PAs in Costa Rica actually lead me right back to PAGH and the Volunteer Opportunities page. The organization that popped up for serving Costa Rica is:

    http://www.fimrc.org/costa-rica

    Perhaps a good place to start?

    To my knowledge, there are no established governing bodies over PAs in Costa Rica. It looks like PAs have gone to Costa Rica (about 8) as mentioned in a presentation at PAEA on the Global expansion of the PA profession in 2008. Here’s the link to the poster: http://www2.paeaonline.org/index.php?ht=a/GetDocumentAction/i/75206

    There is definitely a shortage of medical care in Costa Rica and may be a potentional place to expand the profession of PAs. Perhaps you are a trailblazer?

    Good luck! I hope this was helpful!

    Johnna
