    2018-2019 Application Cycle

    Anyone heard anything from 7/13 interview group?
  2. PA is not well recognize outside of the US yet! I see this changing, but that's just my opinion! There are a number of countries that utilize the PA model. For example, in Israel American trained PAs have to go through an additional 9 months of training in Israel to work there. I know Australia, the Netherlands and I believe South Africa also have a PA model (there are more but I just can't remember them all right now). Working in a foreign country as others have said does come with a pay cut. What you can definitely do as a PA is base out of the US and do mission trips to third world countries. That's what I hope to do . Hope this helps a little! I'm also researching my options regarding this subject so I'm by no means an expert. I also know that NP'S are more internationally recognized and are utilized on teams like Doctors Without Borders and mercy ships whereas PA's are not. Again, I totally see this changing!
  3. Nope! Haven't heard a peep! I debated contacting them, but I still have about two more weeks until I'm at the 8 week mark! I'm assuming they are on the fence about me as they've already offered interviews to people who submitted weeks after me. Still hoping for the best though!
  4. I was verified in late May and still haven't heard anything yet... it seems like they are pulling from high GRE scores first (just my perception).
  5. Yes!! You're not alone! I was verified 5/30 by RFUMS and still haven't heard anything... seems like that can't be good but who knows?? I was debating emailing them but I don't want to be annoying so I probably won't .

    CASPA Verification Times

    Submitted 5/25 verified 5/29 (holiday weekend, it really only took less than one business day). I know the verification times now are over a week as it's getting into peak submission times.

    EKG Tech Training

    Hey! I started off my medical career as an EKG tech which I didn't need certification for at my hospital. I now do all the training for people at our hospital that perform EKG's and the training is very basic(usually a few hours one day). Though I would recommend learning some basics on EKG rhythms as this will help make you a better EKG tech.

    I'm just filling mine out, and I have an option for Spring 2019, maybe they fixed the issue since yesterday?

    I don't know a whole lot but from past posts it looks like there's a MMI portion as well as a more traditional portion with general PA school interview questions. Would love to hear from someone who's been through the process at Rush though!

    Haven't started it yet! Do you guys think the headshot we have to bring can have trees in the background? Might be a silly question but wasn't sure ...
