Hi Everyone, 

 

I am looking to shadow more physician assistants in Kern County, CA. Does anyone know of some PAs that are willing to take pre-pa students to shadow? Or who and where have you shadowed in Bakersfield? 

 

Thanks!

I'm in Bakersfield. I found PAs to shadow through volunteering at Mercy SW and networking at info sessions.

I also work at a community health center, you could try calling different clinics and asking the office manager if they would allow you to shadow a willing PA.

Hope this helps

I'm in Bakersfield too! I volunteered at SJCH with Steve Hanson. When you volunteered at Mercy SW what department were you in? Did you enjoy volunteering there? Do you have any contacts for PAs? I reached out to a few office managers, but they don't seem to call me back.. 

 

Thanks!

ED; not particularly. It's what you make it though- I used it to network and study for exams when the work was done

I do but I am hesitant about connecting them with someone I don't know.

Just keep plugging away, it'll happen.
