  1. Class of 2020 here - I'd like to respectfully disagree that all Yale PA Online students are people who can't attend on campus programs. I could have, and so could other students I know. I got into a local program and turned down other local interviews. I chose Yale PA Online because it allowed me to get a Yale education in my home community. I don't want people to think that this program is *only* for those who can't attend other programs, are a certain age or have certain circumstances, although it happens to be a great program for many for those reasons. This is an innovative way of deliveri
  2. 1) False 2) We don't shadow, a person who shadows just watches, we perform exams and more
  3. Our average age is 35 because our average PCE is twice the national average. That's a good thing. Also, that was me who did that AMA, and I never said we are almost exclusively parents.
  4. It seems no matter how many times facts about this program are addressed you still come on here and say the same things you said before... We do not spend "one" week on physical exam. We have a patient assessment class throughout the entire didactic year. That's 48 weeks. We spend 4 hours EACH WEEK in clinic practicing our physical exam skills on patients with board certified providers. We went to campus and DEMONSTRATED our skills.
  5. It does not automatically turn on. You have to get your audio connection and your webcam going. There are buttons to do this at the top left of your screen.
  6. The firewall struggle is real. Do your interview in a place where you have previously successfully used Adobe Connect. If you've used Adobe Connect before for info sessions, practice setting up your audio line and getting your webcam going. If you've never used Adobe Connect before, get familiar with it before your interview. Be prepared and good to go a solid 15 minutes before your scheduled interview. I recommend a well-lit, private, quiet place.
  7. Yale (including this program) never pays clinical sites.
  8. Dr. Sadler was a part of our Preparing Future PAs course and gave us a lot of PA history as well as the history of founding Yale.
  9. The ARC-PA has mandatory standards for clinical rotations. I don't think they would accredit a system like that.
  10. Trekkie, if by clinical hours of training you mean during the course of the program, then no one has completed those yet as we're just 4 months into didactic year and no one has graduated yet. But we have 15 months of clinical rotations and we go to clinic half a day each week for the latter 10 months of didactic year. 15 months x 160 hours/month = 2400hrs 10 months x 16 hours/month = 160hrs Together is 2560 hours of clinical training.
  11. Thank you. It is our goal and program mission as well to show up to clinical rotations as prepared as possible and on par with anyone else. I’m not sure how online NP education is done, but my hope is that they are continuously assessing their students’ learning and making adjustments accordingly.
  12. Pharmacist, paramedic, army medic, physical therapist, PT aide, respiratory therapist, dental hygienist, radiology technician, blood bank supervisor, medical technologist, dietician, medical assistant, scribe, cardiac rehabilitation, public health, clinical research... just some of the ones I can remember.
  13. 1) Of course we can. 2) I’m sorry you feel that way.
  14. I understand your point about perception and I addressed it above as well. Did the public and legislators and regulators understand or respect the quality difference between in class PA education and in class NP education before? Did they care that NPs who don't learn how to interpret an EKG are running their own practices? No. Were NPs given full practice authority at the VA despite having some crappy online schools? Yes. If crappy online education didn't hold NPs back, why should good online education hold PAs back? Because we can't advocate for ourselves as well as they do? Again, a
