What else can you do?

Working for a private surgeon, or billing independently, will often increase your income substantially!

Takeaway two

On average experienced SAs make over $27,000 more annually than new STs, and a new SA graduate would earn almost $15,000 more annually than a new ST graduate.

What does that mean for you?

That means that if you are a new ST and you chose to continue your education with RASA, this program could pay for itself in under 3 months* based on your salary increase alone!
