  1. Yes for sure! So what I did was using my CPT to obtain those HCE. My undergrad major was public health/occupational safety and health. And I found a job as an ER medical scribe so I applied for CPT with that (just so that you are aware. CPT are usually used for internship and you have to be enrolled in an internship class for it. Which is what I did). After the internship course ended I just continued working in the ER until I graduated. My OPT was actually used for an occupational safety position in a different company which had nothing to do with patient contact so I didn’t get any hours from that. Hope it helps! Feel free to message
  2. Hi everyone, my name is Justina, from Taiwan. I've been accepted into the Ohio physician assistant program since last November. But this morning I received the following email from them regarding my visa processing (I-20 generation) Below is the original message I received the following email from my program last night, basically saying that due to the PA school classes held online during clinical rotation year, they won’t be able to sponsor me with a F-1 visa to study in the US. I’m sure all clinical rotation classes have to be online in nature since students are gonna be mostly in the hospital and far from the campus. Just wondering if anyone has had similar experiences with this? Have you had rotation that last longer than a semester? And how does your F-1 visa work during those times? 1Ting Yao Lee 2 Comments Like Comment Share
  3. Thank you so much! i've heard of Chatham and George Washington! Seem like really good school! I actually got accepted into the PA program of Ohio university last year, the school just got pushed back due to the pandemic. I will definitely take your recommendation when I am looking for jobs later on! Thank you!!!! Stay safe wherever you are
  4. For those attending the program, has anyone started looking for housing yet?
  5. I got the acceptance call the day after the interview!
  6. I also interviewed on the 17th and got the acceptance call on the 18th! Super excited, and yes, everyone is super nice! You will do great
  7. Thank you so much! I did reach out to Danielle and was given the appropriate info! And thank you
  8. I have no idea about how international PA's get jobs here in the States, but I am currently working as a project engineer (my undergraduate degree did not have a lot to do with medicine haha) and honestly if you are hooked up with the right people it is not hard to find a job here. I think the things I would worry more about would be the sponsorship (but I've also heard from other people that as long as you establish a good relationship with the company, if they can afford it then they usually don't have much problem with it) after the OPT expires.
  9. Thank you so much!!! I've only applied for three programs this year. The only interview invitation that I've gotten so far is for Ohio university, best of luck to you and your interview!!
  10. Thank you so much for your sharing! Would you by chance be able to share some tips on the interview? I just got the invitation yesterday and am all nervous about it already :3 Also I don't believe I submitted a supplemental application at all but I just received the interview invitation yesterday, should I be concerned at all? Thank you so much!! Justina
  11. Does anyone know what interview method they use? MMR or traditional? I just received the interview invitation yesterday too!
  12. I've never received any confirmation from them as far as I remember, but I just received an interview invitation from them yesterday. I applied in June or July (can't remember cuz it's been a long time..)
  13. I just sent you an email, looking forward to hearing back from you! Best of luck with PA school!!!
  14. I am from Taiwan, applying to PA school this year. Is there anyone here that's either a practicing PA or PA student that comes from outside of US, potentially a country that doesn't speak English? What helped you on your application that got you admitted to PA schools? And is there any PA schools that you would recommend for international students? I have around 1500 hours of patient contact, GPA of 3.97, and TOEFL score of 102 out of 120. Currently I am looking into schools in New York, Texas, and California, since they seem to have more opportunity for future employment as a bilingual provider (Chinese and English) I appreciate any advice, thank you guys so much!!!
  15. I am submitting my application this year, below is the list of schools I am considering submitting my application for. Does anyone have recommendation as to which school would be better for international students? (I plan on staying in the States after graduation, so need to be able to get into hospitals that would provide sponsorship) - Baylor, Emory, MDC, Duke, University of Utah, George Washington, Oregon health and science. The two things that I am looking at are: the possibility to rotating in hospitals that will provide sponsorship, and the tuition+living cost. Not really any preference beyond that, and I am good moving anywhere but I am living in Idaho right now (I thought of applying to ISU, but its out of state tuition is not cheap and Idaho is not near any border) Thank you all so much!!!!!
