  1. I'm a first year student at community college, where I plan to be for 2 years. Hopefully, I can transfer after that majoring in Psychology. As for my experience, I will earn some hours at a hospice this semester. I'll set up my classes for spring semester in a way that I can take an EMT class at an ROP too. While, I do this, I'll be working as a caregiver for a few days a week (maybe not even necessary). After my EMT certification, I find a job for that and continue working as I am getting my degree. I'll also apply for a health scholar summer program, where I'll be volunteering at a hospital in the summer all week. (I will not work all summer because of this) Will I be set? Advices?
  2. what pa program are you in and what's your profile like? I am still an undergrad student and I would want to be (extra) well-prepared for PA school. I have looked at multiple uni's programs, but since I'm in california, I'd like to stay local. I was looking at usc's. anybody in usc's program? gpa? GRE score? HRE? curious. thank you.
  3. Hi, I am a psychology student in my first year. After shadowing my aunt and her PAs, I have decided to pursue a career in that. I looked at a couple programs including USC's, Loma Linda's, Davis', Western Uni's, Northeastern's, and Cornell's. I'm aware that shadowing doesn't count for many of these programs (but it does in loma linda where my aunt works at their hospital). My mom works as a caregiver at an assisted living. Could I get my patient care hours there working as one? I have also started finding volunteer opportunities at hospitals and retirement homes nearby,
  4. I plan on transferring to a UC for psychology, since I am in junior college right now. Since, PA programs require 500-1000 hours of hands on patient care work, I will volunteer at a hospital nearby. That won't be enough. What jobs can I do will fulfill this requirement? What do you suggest on doing? I was thinking of working as a caregiver for a year or so. Also, is working with children with autism patient care experience? I will hopefully graduate after all this in 2021. When do I start applying for PA programs, so that I'll go immediately after graduating? I need some structure. Thank you :)
