  1. Hi, if you are interested in shadowing hours and live in the South Florida area. I can offer Saturday mornings from 9am-12pm (sometimes 1pm) shadowing hours. There are at least 3 PA's to shadow in both pediatric and adult urgent care medicine.

    It is a super underserved community so you will see have some really good exposure as many of the parents/patients use the urgent care as their only means of healthcare.

  2. Hey Guys, 

    Love to see the initiative of forming a study group. As you will see once you get in to the program, the first lesson that you learn is that there is power in numbers. Here is a link to a short video on how I studied for the entrance exam. Also, if anyone is interested in Saturday morning urgent care shadowing opportunities, you can message me with your name, healthcare experience and level of education. Good luck.

     


  3. hey future PA’s my name is Peter Molina, PA-C. I graduated from MDC last year August and I felt that the entire process for getting in and staying in was super confusing. So I’m gonna be posting videos to help you guys go through the process. Also, I’ll be opening up some shadowing opportunities at an urgent care that I work at on Saturdays as well where you can get some hands on experience and ask me as many questions as you would like. Below I will link a video to my first video that I posted for my classmates. 

    Show support and subscribe as well and let’s get you to that 6 figure salary that you deserve.

    Does anyone  know if the PA program requires the purchase of MDF instruments stethoscope and sphygmomanometer? I ask because I have a 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope and a Welch Allyn blood pressure cuff which are great and have been using for work.

    you can use whatever you got bro. as long as you have it on the first day of lab you're good.

    Hi guys! 

    I applied for the 2018 cycle and got no interview after making a 19.5 in my admission test. I'm curious what are the steps to applying again. I felt defeated that I did not get an interview, I wish I knew why? I assume I need to bump up my application. I wonder what can I do to make my application more appealing? I wonder what are the G.P.A's getting accepted. I also wonder what is the experience level they are looking for? I was a Dental Assistant for years but I understand that is not what they want as medical experience so I shadowed a P.A during the summer of 2017. Now I think I may need to Scribe, what are your opinions on this. 

    You know once the 2018 application process is over you can schedule an appointment with Jackie or Isabel to go over why you were not selected.


  6. Hey guys, I'm in the MDC PA program, I grad next summer. I just want to give a few words of encouragement. WHAT EVER YOU DO DON'T GIVE UP. your entire life depends on it. If at first you don't succeed, try again and again and again until something gives. If life knocks you down, land on your back. if you can look up you can get up. YOU DID NOT COME THIS FAR JUST TO COME THIS FAR….. ARE YOU WORTH IT?


  7. What are you all using to study?  I've been going through A&P and Microbiology materials but thus far that's it...  I went to double check on the website to make sure I wasn't missing anything and I can't find any info.  I swear it used to be there.  

     

    If anyone has any concrete information would really appreciate it -thank you! 

    Medical term – 20 questions

    A&P – 50 questions

    ·      General concepts

    Micro – 15 questions

    ·      Kingdom/family classification system

    ·      Gram staining

    Medical math – 15 questions

    Gram to kilogram

    ·      Cc to tbs

    ·      Cc to tsp

    ·      mL to L

     

    ·      etc…

     

    this is what the website said last year.

     

    My recommendation:

    master medical terms and medical math, thats 35 freebies that you can get right, you don't need 100% to get accepted, I got in with an 84%.


  8. Hi everyone, do any of you have more or less of an idea of what the essay portion might be on? I know they pick the topic but more or less what can be expected... any input is greatly appreciated!

    Doesn't matter the subject, what they're are looking for is your grammar and sentence structure. No one expects you to walk around knowing everything about melting polar caps or Obama care. 


  9. I wonder if today is the only day they're sending out invitations.

    nope not at all, last year they send emails out for about a week straight. remember 300 students will receive an invitation for the entrance exam the testing center only holds 50 ppl at a time.
