  1. Last week to help a fellow PA researcher out! Hello Fellow PAs! I am currently a Doctoral Candidate at A.T. Still University. I am studying the perceptions of new graduate PAs and injectable therapies for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. If you are 1-3 years post-PA school working in primary care or general internal medicine, please consider taking this 10-minute survey on perceptions and prescribing habits. Thank you!

    National Guard for PA's

    Hello, I can only speak for my very short experience at a 1LT in the California National Guard -- I have only drilled 1x since my commission in Feb. Your initial training, "BOLC" or Basic Officer Leadership Course is 3 wks, 2 days in TX. You have to do this within 2 yrs of commissioning but sooner the better. You will also have "AT" (annual training) of 2 weeks. For my "clinic job" in the ARNG, I work at the state headquarters and basically give medical clearance to soliders for deployment. No treatment rendered. Every unit is different, I chose to be in this type of situation since I had no military experience and was told this unit was particularly a good starting place for a military career. Re: deployment, I think there are a lot of different rumors floating around. I have heard max deployment is 6 months for a PA in the ARNG. I have found so far that the Guard will accommodate my schedule as far as further training. You can always ask for a make-up date. The loan repayment or cash bonus are nice but you have to do this because you want to serve. Everybody can tell if you're just there to get the cash. It's not worth the time or sacrifice if that's why you are joining. I joined because I wanted the best of both worlds -- a civilian primary care job and military experience. I wanted the training the military gives plus I really wanted to give back to those that have allotted me the freedom to post on this forum. Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck with your decision.
  5. FYI - Air Force Reserves does have a PA option but you must have 2 years of PA experience under your belt per a recruiter I spoke to in Sept 2012. I know a few PAs in the AF Reserves. The AF Res website is crappy and hard to navigate...but they do have some info about PAs if you look hard enough. I was told the Air National Guard doesn't have that experience requirement (per Air NG recruiter). In the end, I decided to join the Army NG. Excited to serve and get some help on the dreaded loans.
  6. Congrats!

    I choose Touro because of location, commitment to community service, having an MPH. I am really glad I came here. I had many other offers but I think this was the best program for me. Good luck!!!

  7. hi enjoy hope you had a good christmas. I just had a quick question when is the best time to apply for fafsa. I start the program in August.

    Thanks
