  1. 5 years in and I love practicing medicine as a PA. I won’t lie, my current work place isn’t my dream job… because I loved working at my previous job which was an FQHC, but the administration was horrible! Now I am in the private sector (I do make more money) but not only am I a PA, but also the clinic administrator (my background is health admin). PA’s have a collaborative relationship with our supervising doctor and he is always available for questions. Benefits are ok, but I have a lot of flexibility with my schedule being the clinic administrator. Some positive things: As a PA, I’v
  2. My badge says PA, coat says PA and I intruduce myself as a PA and might correct them once if they call me "doc" depending on the situation.. I refer to myself and my collegues as medical practiotioners (I work with many NP's and MD's- I am the only PA). However, most of my patients only speak Spanish- It's funny, in Spanish the legal translation for our profession is "Asociado Medico" -Medical Associate. Most of my patients don't get it... they wish me luck in my future med school studies and end their consversation by "thank you doctorcita"- (female doctor in Spanish) :D
  3. Hey, my clinic is not too far from San Fernando (LA by Echo Park). I can prob have you shadow me during my evening shift (4:45-7:00pm). It was hard for me to get shadowing expereince so I'll be happy to help...(Just FYI it is 98% Spanish Speaking and uninsured)... Let me know if you are interested.

  4. Hi Emerson 104!

    We made it! Congrats! :) I live in Chatsworth (the valley) so I plan on commuting the dreaded 405 for the first few months. I probably will be moving to LA with my family in a couple of months cause the drive will burn me out. Are you from around here?

  9. I just read one of your post, and I am more than ever motivated to apply to PA school. I myself am 28, attending school at a cc, have a gpa of 2.8, with most of my prerequisites done with. My chem (gen and ochem) got an A's in except for ochem 2, biology with a B's., I will bleed crimson and blue until I wear that white coat. I hope you do the same. Thanks for the advice, even when it wasnt directed to me. That means alot.
