  1. Hello. To begin, I apologize if this question has been asked before, but I could not find the information I needed for my situation. Google results articles are incredibly vague so hopefully speaking to people will be better for me! I am an undergraduate pre-PA student. I am interested in going through the military for PA school. I do not have any military involvement at this point in time. Do they train people with a bachelor's degree, is it paid for, how many years of service will I be committed to? The little information I could find online leads me to believe they only train people wh
  2. Hi, So I've been doing a lot of research trying to see if it is feasible for me to be a physician's assistant. I am an ultrasound technician/ back office manager and have shadowed with many hours with other PA's, NP's and Dr.'s. I have clinical hours needed. I have a lot of humanities and general courses needed as the pre-requisites. I am currently enrolled at a community college to get some of the science pre-requisites needed. I have been contacting admissions at different schools to make sure my classes completed would be sufficient. I also have my bachelor's degree in healthcare manag
  3. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and so thankful to have found it in this very confusing time. I have been seriously considering PA school, but I am trying to determine what would be the best route for me. I have a BA in psychology, so I would have to go back to school to get my science prerequisites. I am super excited to go back to school, however I am unsure whether to go back and major in Bio, or just go back as a continuing education student and just take the 30 credits that i need for PA school rather than 60 for the second major. My second dilemma at this time is the pat
  4. I've already been accepted in to PA school starting in the fall and have been working in international health since 2011. However, my contract is up at the end of February with very little chance of renewal, so I will essentially be job-less from March till August. I don't want to start a new "career," because I will only be there for about 5 months, but I do need to do something to bring in some money. I don't have any ER, CNA, etc. certifications either. Does anyone have any ideas for where to look for short-term work, besides the typical retail route?
  5. hey everybody I am an undergraduate student with a lot up upper division math, science and bio on the transcript, no bachelor degree. I had heard that you can get a job as a working PA with a Bachelors Degree in PA, a certificate and a passing PANCE score. Is this restricted to specific states or is it not applicable at all? if not then would it be better to earn a Bachelor's Degree in biology somewhere then continue to a school with a Masters in PA or to start out all over again at some of these combined, accepting "fresh out of high school student" schools? I have heard that the c

  7. Hi all, I just wanted to check on this, because it seems fishy to me. My employer gave me a packet for medicare enrollment application (reassignment of medicare benefits). They just told me to sign it and give it back. However, I put in my resignation weeks ago and my last day is in 2 weeks. I've worked here for about 8 months. They checked the box "You are enrolling or are currently enrolled in Medicare and will be reassigning your benefits to this supplier for the first time." I get the reason for this, but shouldn't it have been when I first started here? Almost all my patient
  8. Does anyone have knowledge on the importance of supplemental essays vs. the CASPA statement. As oppose to many of the essays on this forum my personal statement really describes my motivation where as my supplemental essays describe my qualifications. Can any of you speak to the importance of one essay vs. the other?
  9. Could really use some assistance from you guys! My girlfriend was studying communication sciences and disorders, with the intention of then going on to audiology school for the next four years. She is a rising senior in the program and will graduate next April. Just recently, she has been thinking she'd rather go to PA school. How complicated would you guys think this transition would be? Her plan would be to take a year off after graduation to work at a hospital and accrue the 500 hours most schools require. However, she has only taken one semester of biology, one semester of che
  10. Hi everyone :) My name is Rosemary Ajnassian. I am currently in community college and I transferring this fall as a Sociology major to CSUN. Currently I am also taking the classes required to apply to PA programs and I am shadowing two PA's in different fields. I am interested in applying to Western University. I was wondering if having a Bachelors degree is Sociology is looked down upon when I will be applying for my medical program since it has nothing to do with the medical field? does it make a difference that I'm going to a Cal State rather than UCLA or USC? and does it look better
  11. Pacific requires a bachelor's degree to be completed prior to May 1st in the year of entry. Has anyone been accepted that had all of their prerequistites completed, but a bachelor's degree still in progress at the time of application? Thanks for any info! It seems too competitive to have anything less than perfect!
