  1. Timon, Is it okay if I message you? I'm currently in my didactic year over in WA and wanted to go home ( SoCal) to be closer to the daughter. I'm mainly looking for a Family Practice or Internal Med preceptor in the LA area or anywhere in the SoCal area. Any info helps. Thanks!
  2. Heritage University's PA program (Toppenish, WA) is very open to allowing students set up their own clinical rotations. Typically this option is reserved for those that are from out-of-state and would like to do their rotations near home and family. As long as you get your preceptors into contact with the school and both parties are in agreement, you shouldn't have an issue. But again, as was mentioned above there is a lot of legality issues that come with setting up your own rotations. Once you get into PA school just talk with your clinical rotation advisor. Good luck.
  3. Hey all, I'm currently in my didactic year of PA School at Heritage University in Toppenish, WA. I'm originally from L.A. and was wondering if anyone knows any preceptors in that area. In particular I am looking for a Family Practice or Internal Med site that would be willing to take me under their wing for 1 year (2-3 days/week). Heritage's clinical year is a little different than most school. I can provide more info to any potential preceptors. If anyone would be willing to help me with any information, I would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. So I was bored and was browsing the CIA website when I stumbled upon this link: https://www.cia.gov/careers/opportunities/support-professional/physician-assistant.html Anyone have experience with this position or know anyone that has? Have I asked too many questions? Will I have to die now since i've asked this? Seriously though, I'd do this. It seems fun. "...candidates must be available for frequent worldwide travel to include permanent relocation every two to three years. The first overseas assignment will include extensive travel (six to seven months per year consisting of 45-60 day deployments) often to austere locations, operating independently with a minimal amount of key medical supplies and without direct physician oversight." Sounds right up my alley! :)
  5. I interviewed on 12/10. I thought I heard the faculty say that those accepted from the 12/10 interview group will be notified the first week of FEB. Was I just hearing things or did the rest of you guys hear that as well? @dodododi I'm not saying you're lying, I'm sure you were superb in your interview thus leading to an early acceptance ( good job!). I just want to verify if everyone else recalls hearing what I heard.
  6. Congrats! I got mine too. Looking forward to starting with you!
  7. I felt like my interview went okay. I probably could have gone over some more practice questions. I thought i said the word "um" a lot. This was my first interview so I have no other program to reference it to. It was a group interview but each candidate answered each question individually. Some interviewers even gave different questions per candidate in the room. There is a time constraint on each interview session so they ask to limit all the questions to no more than 5 min. They will brief you all on the procedure when you guys show up. Best advice is to look up possible interview questions online and to PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. And don't lie! best of luck!
  8. I got selected!!! Looking forward to starting with class 4! I just got my call today about 5 min ago.
  9. I believe I heard her say that we would be contacted either on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. But I didn't hear her specify how long until we would hear from her on those particular days. From the comments from the previous selection conference. The candidates were able hear back the Mon-Wed right after their interview.
  10. It was great getting to meet you all at the 05NOV selection conference. Good luck to all of you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I submitted 24AUG2016 but was not verified until a couple weeks after.
  12. Hello all! I know this thread is a little old, but the 2016-2017 candidates are about to take on the interviews. I've read some pretty good pointers from the previous posts from last year. Any new advice you would all suggest to the new guys? I've got an interview for 10DEC2016. Thanks a bunch. And if I'm correct, MBK first cohort will be graduating soon. CONGRATS guys and gals!
  13. Just got an Interview for Dec 10th! Anyone else get an interview?
