  1. Hi everyone! I have a bachelors degree in Chemistry and more than three years experience as a pharmacy technician. I was originally going to apply to pharmacy school (hence why I started working at a retail pharmacy) but I realized that it wasn't the right profession for me. I got licensed, state certified and nationally certified. Now I'm working at a mental health facility in the pharmacy department and I like it much better. I get to communicate with the nurses and doctors over at the facility directly and we help each other with the patients (with records, insurance, getting their drugs, e
  2. Hello, I am just beginning the process of pursuing PA school. My plan is to apply to the University of New England in April of 2019. I am a 41 year old professional with 20 years in IT. I work at a Surgical Center as the IT Support person. My plan is to start my sciences in Jan of 18 (I have 6 to complete) I am writing to ask, what would be the best route to get my 2000 clinical hours? I am looking at doing the CNA program here at my job. It is free, it is 11 weeks longs and I would get a job in the hospital, immediately. Working closely with doc's , nurses, on critical care units. I was
  3. Hi Guys, I currently work as a CT tech assistant at a level 1 trauma hospital in Wisconsin. My duties on each of my shifts include handling all of the patient duties when the CT techs are busy. I get the patients ready for the scan, flush and remove IVs, administer IV contrast, and transport patients to and from the ER, to name a few. I see and deal with stroke codes, level 1 traumas, inpatients, outpatients, and ICU patients. I cannot find a ton of information as to if my current job would count as a fine site to acquire direct patient care or not, and I am also unable to find any
  4. Are messaging apps the future of healthcare communications? We have an app that acts as the "central nervous system" of healthcare communications with a channel (similar to FB messenger) that connects doctors, PAs, patients, labs, etc. on one platform. We've seen amazing results with our users so far in the NYC area. Shoot me an email at a.sheehy@klara.com if you're interested in seeing a demo. PS. I'm not trying to sell anything I promise, it's free. Is HIPAA-complaint (essentially texting) something you would be interested in incorporating in your practice? What are some issues you curr
  5. Hey, Sorry if this is a repost but I couldn't find anything on this forum about the actual interview process for ER Tech positions. I have an interview Friday morning at a big (>30 bed) Level 1 trauma center and I am pretty nervous about my chances to get the "emergency services technician" position. I have my EMT-B and have a little (read very little) experience volunteering in another hospital ER and some experience on a squad but not a ton outside of what I did through school to get my cert (maybe 36 total hours with local FD on 911 calls). I do however have about a year of experienc
  6. Hello all, Pre-PA student currently knocking out pre-reqs and looking forward to applying this coming spring (2015). I do part-time EMT work, but the bulk of my HCE hours will come from my full-time job at a treatment center dealing in addiction recovery and trauma. This is more of a mental health focus. I'd welcome thoughts and feedback on what weight different types of experience carry (emergency medicine versus mental health, etc.) as well as stories of success (or failure) in how you used your hours to best and most accurately present yourself to the interviewers and admissions
  7. Hey guys, I matriculated into this program last May. We've completed the first summer semester so far, and I am currently in the Fall semester here at Tech. I applied to about 7 other schools, got 4 interviews and ended up in Midland, Texas. Not going to lie, but housing is kinda expensive, water sucks and I don't know where to recycle my glass cans.. but Iooking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. Although the school is segregated from the main campus, being in Midland really helped me concentrate. There are no distractions.. not much to do. There are about 2 starbucks here, and whenever

    Questions

    In the CAPSA application, where are we supposed to submit the letters of reccomendation? Also what do we put for health related training, is that shadowing hours? Or does shadowing hours go into volunteer and work hours? Also how do I send my official transcript?
