    Most likely you will have to start from the beginning because:

    I dont think that you can get a PA license anymore. A few years ago, doctors with no licenses were able to get a PA license. That has been stopped. This may only be true for florida. If you find out any other info. let me know.

    Most PA programs require 90 credits wirht of prerequisites and then 2.5-3 years of classrooma dn clinical time to earn a masters.

    Seems more logical to come to the staes to get an MPH degree, study for the steps and then try to get into a residency/ fellow program as and MD/MPH or something.

    Or come teach as an adjunct.

    I think the best practice is to get PA licensing done before applying to clinic.
