  1. Does anyone have experience with applying for a surgical PA job that requires you to get a First Assist certification? This is the first I have heard of it and would appreciate any info on the course/timeline/recommendations for where to get it from? Apologies if this has been answered before. I searched and searched and could not find solid info. Thanks ahead of time.
  2. If you had to choose 2 elective rotations out of these 3 options (Cardiothoracic Surgery, ICU, or Orthopedic Trauma), which would you chose and why?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  3. If this has already been asked, I apologize. I could not find a thorough post. Any recommendations/advice/comments (good or bad) would be really appreciated! Does anyone have any advice on an ICU clinical rotation? Or advice on working as a PA in ICU/critical care? Any recommendation on books/resources to use as a student on rotation? Any current or previous ICU/critical care PA: is it difficult to find a job in ICU/critical care? Is a fellowship recommended or required?
  4. Do you happen to know how many DC they've taken 2018, 2019, 2020 for PAs? Or if it's trending up or down perhaps?
  5. Hey guys. I am accepted to PA school that starts August 2019 and will graduate December 2021. I did not apply to the cycle that closed in February 2019, that would take effect Fall 2019(I think?). I have considered applying in August 2019 for the next FY that opens in October 2019, but I'm not sure it would be worth it as I would be in school already. I would really appreciate any opinions on this. Secondly, if anyone has any first or secondhand knowledge about direct commissioning as a civilian PA after graduation that would be extremely helpful as well. Thanks, Sam
  6. I'm interested in this information as well. Have you gotten any other responses or info you can share?
  7. Does anyone know if there is a FB page for Class of 2021 yet??
  8. Anyone else heard from 10/19 interview date recently?
  9. So is the Army not needing as many PA's for deployments currently?
