From doctor to physician assistant?

Incredible, and a sad commentary on the state of physician practice today:

I’m a resident physician but would like to be a PA. Does anyone know if my med school would count for PA training? Can I sit for the PA licensing exam?

Physician assistants don’t have to take call, have better hours, and generally encounter less reimbursement headaches than doctors.

Still, I find it hard to believe that someone who has already completed medical school would consider applying to PA school.
