  1. Thanks for your reply, umbPA! I'm just trying to watch some videos so I have a little background understanding before diving into the real class. Thus, I'm wondering what sections in the Khan selection I should focus on. Thanks again!
  2. Hi all, I am taking my first General Chemistry class in a couple of months (as a Pre-PA class) and I am looking to prep for the class early since I have a decent amount of free time currently. I am looking through the Khan Academy Chemistry videos and I am wondering which specific videos/sections would help me with Gen Chem. Khan covers many, many topics but they make it somewhat ambiguous on which would be helpful for a High School Chem class and which would be helpful for College Gen Chem, or both. Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on which ones I should watch. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for your response, GreatChecko. I'm a technician in a private practice currently. Are there any certification courses you would recommend? Also, I think the main issue is that I haven't taken these basic science classes yet so without general biology and general chemistry, there aren't too many science electives I can take....or am I wrong?
  4. Hi all, I am wondering if anyone could give me some Pre-Req advice for my specific circumstances. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology a couple of years ago and now I'm pursuing PA school. I decided over the past 6 months that I'll be doing this so I'm finally taking Pre-PA classes this summer at a local university. Here is what I've taken thus far that fit the Pre-PA possible mold: Medical Terminology, 6 credits of English (3 of writing and 3 of literature), bundles of psych classes, lower level and upper level stats, calculus Originally, I wanted to take Gen Che
  5. Thanks everyone! Last question: Has anyone heard about Clovis College's 3 credit medical terminology class? I would prefer to take University of California-San Diego Extension's 1 credit version, but of course, this could eliminate some PA schools for me.
  6. Hey everyone, I'm planning on taking a medical terminology class online as a pre-req for many of the PA schools. I'm assuming each school has a different requirement for number of credits for the class, but I'm wondering if anyone thinks it matters. Thus, does it matter if I take med term class for 1 credit, 2 credits, or 3 credits, as a requirement for some applications? Also, does anybody have recommendations for 4 year university med term classes that can be taken online and are also easy to apply to as a guest? Thank you!
  7. Also, does it matter if I take med term or anatomy at a CC online? Since it's online, as long as it's accredited, is it any advantage to take it at a 4 year university (or a disadvantage to take it online at a CC)?
  8. Interesting stuff. So would the DMU Med Terminology class be accepted as credit at a variety of PA programs? Or is it just a way to learn a few things before starting PA school? I'm guessing it's the latter but I just want to make sure.
  9. Awesome, thank you! Is there a specific school/program you recommend for an online medical terminology course, specifically?
  10. Thanks for your feedback, PAGuy55 and rev ronin! This January will be the only time I take a class online before I start in-person classes at a local University in May. Thus, would you definitely recommend medical terminology for this 1 online class then or do you think taking anatomy online in January more beneficial?
  11. Hello, After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree 1.5 years ago, I’m starting Pre-PA classes this upcoming at a local university. However, I recently decided that I’m going to get the ball rolling by taking a class this January (can’t start a full load yet…work is too many hours currently/tedious). I’m thinking that I will either take Anatomy or Medical Terminology online. Also, is it ever an issue to take a class online for Pre-PA if it’s a class that usually doesn’t require a lab? Which would you recommend as a start? It seems as if more programs require Anatomy than require Med Termi
