  1. what? My program is 27 months, with 6 core rotations and 1 elective. How long are their rotations so that can have so many? Ours are 6 weeks each.
  2. Here’s the article. http://kimatv.com/news/local/physician-assistant-program-at-heritage-university-put-on-probation
  3. http://www4.toledoblade.com/Education/2017/10/20/UT-physician-assistant-program-loses-accreditation.html They seem to have to negotiate for current students to take the PANCE, you can take it if your program is on probation but not if the've lost their accreditation. The program you graduate from has to be accredited (which they are even if on probation) to sit for the PANCE. -Source: NCCPA representative friend.

  5. I spit my water out from laughing.
  6. That was a good read, thanks. True that experiences may vary, but that redditor makes me feel better and fortunate about my program. For their topic on "Sex equals gender", interestingly enough Current 2017 updated to include these subjects (trans/bi/non-cis) and we received lectures on it.
  7. Just saw today on SiriusXM Doctor Radio Ch. 110, there is a The Nurse Practitioner program which is a Bi-monthly Special that Highlights the Role of the Nurse Practitioner in Healthcare, its on today from 4-6pm (EST?). Where's our PA program at! https://www.siriusxm.com/doctorradio
  8. no problem. South College, Knoxville TN. I am so incredibly satisfied and happy with my program.
  9. you don't have to say "yes" wink wink, but will you try to match again? I think i would, but I'm not in your situation or been through what you have.
  10. To be frank, I wouldn't have imagined your situation but I can imagine you're not the only one. So are you Dr. X PA-C? Since you've graduated med school you have a doctorate but not a license to practice? Just curious how that all works. Again, bravo on the tenacity.
  11. Holy shi.... poop.
  12. no. My program for the last several years isn't "ranked" high but we've scored >10 percent above the national average for PACKRAT scores, 97% or greater 1st time pass on PANCE for the last five years and 98% job placement prior to graduation.
  13. I'm amazed someone would even go to a caribbean med school with their reputation. You must have had an amazing amount of money to apply to so many internships and then PA programs subsequently. like @ral said, not sure this post's purpose except for "look at me" and reassurance. But you must have a severe degree of passion and determination of medicine, and that is admirable.
  14. Left field but I remember seeing a PA in occupational therapy at the VA and all she did was sign off on paperwork.
  15. You and i are very similar, I love this
