  1. I feel like any question about this is remnant of stigma surrounding mental health. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I was diagnosing and treating mental illness. It does count. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. FYI I went to an open house and while the administrator did not agree that my MD supervised work as a social worker was HCE ([emoji849]) she said home healthcare was. Because "you take the person to the doctor and see what the doctor does." I was like.. Ok. I go to the doctor myself and see what the doctor does. That counts? So.. Yeah.

  4. Just thought this was interesting & impressive. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/paying-off-340k-in-loans-in-7-months-after-graduation.1147048/
  5. It sounds insanely stupid when medical professionals use the term OCD to describe anything other than OCD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. oh wow ha!!! Amazing. Girl... If your bfs mom will vouch.. Get a lawyer, a settlement, and pay for a good ED retreat where you can get proper tx and a nice tan. What a dick.
  7. I don't want to be a CNA but it is the simplest avenue to getting a job that is relative to this path, flexible in scheduling and will count toward HCE. (Though it's so expensive it's ridiculous). What is a SNF?
  8. Sorry to beat a dead horse but I just spoke to the patient yesterday about the job. This is the same kind of work as I'd be doing as a CNA. Moving him around, personal care, cleaning, feeding (he cant lift his arms), etc. Probably will administer medication too. Why isn't this HCE? I know it's not patient tech work but it is patient care.
  9. at least you're real about it. maybe i'll publish my own obsessive spreadsheets one day.
  10. what is the average salary? Always sign up for the IBR. Eventually these mess of loans will be forgiven if you make minimum payments. System can't carry on this way.
  11. Haha- thanks a bunch :) I am also simple minded! Much appreciated. @paadmissions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi @paadmissions, another question if I may! I have my bachelors and masters but am taking pre reqs as a post bac. If I matriculate at my city college, my tuition is less expensive, and I get benefits like health insurance etc. this would mean I would apply as if I was getting a second bachelors but would then "drop out" after my reqs are done. I just want to ensure that this wouldn't be frowned upon by adcoms? It would be seen on the transcript I assume. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi. I was going to do the whole CNA training, but have a possible opportunity to do in home care for a man with a muscular degenerative disease who needs assistance with daily living. Is this considered HCE? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. What is that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. My feedback is that "feedback" is both singular and plural.
  16. Thanks @paadmissions much appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. not planning to pay it back in 10 yrs unless it's dismissed for public service. Otherwise will be dismissed at 25 years.
  18. This is interesting. I took a chemistry class for 4 weeks at a local school before W and thought it would disappear into the ethers. Apparently not. Is this something that weighs heavily in the application? I later went on to a completely different masters program - the W was literally 10 years ago... I had pretty much forgotten about it until now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. There should be a subforum where people can advertise themselves... Is this every PA-C's side job? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Gotcha. Thanks all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Right, I understand. So how do you indicate what you'll be doing between your point of application and point of matriculation? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Hi! I have two questions. Do PA admissions programs expect to see students have a heavy science course load for several semesters? I know medical schools advise post-bacs to take at least three courses at the same time as an indicator of ability to manage this. As a post-bac I am considering leaving my job for full time school for a year, but if it is acceptable to admissions committees to take 2 courses per semester, I might reconsider for financial reasons. I also would like to know if my clinical experience as a social worker (LMSW) constitutes HCE for your program. Some programs accep
  24. No, I thought you matriculate the same year you apply So do you include the work you intend to do in the interim year? This is such a strange system
