  1. I found some old post about this topic but only a few people were involved and it was from quite a few years back. I thought I'd bring it up again for more clarification for all. Looking for suggestions on how to/ how you enter military experience into CASPA. What are your thoughts on dividing all of that up between medical and non-medical experience, training and schools, deployment vs. garrison, leadership roles, and awards? Did you add past certs that have since lapsed? Should it be broken down by each duty station or each title? Also, how did you quantify the number of hours and should it be one lump sum or divided up? Any thoughts would helpful.
  2. I'm currently a reserve army medic going to school and working at a civilian hospital. I have the opportunity to become a flight medic but the training isn’t very practical for me right now since I am still trying to finish my bachelor's degree. Would being a flight medic over a standard army medic help me in the admissions process to PA school? Or would army medic be attractive enough? A little background, my other experience includes 6 months patient transporter, 2 years Cath Lab CNA, 2 years Blood Draw Medical Assistant/Phlebotomist, 6 years Army Reserve Medic Thank you for any advice!

  4. Hi all, I became an EMT when I was 16, and I am now a sophomore at my undergraduate college. Most of my EMS experience has been volunteer (aside from a few temporary paid opportunities). I was wondering how I should count my total hours of "prior healthcare experience..." As for my volunteer hours: Can I count the total number of hours I was on duty? Or can I only count the hours that I was actually interacting with PTs? For my paid hours: If I was paid for a certain number of hours as an EMT, can I count all of those hours towards the HCE requirement? Or only the hours that I had direct patient contact? Thanks for helping out guys! -Steve from NJ
  5. This is a short film (approx 11 min) about one special medic
  6. For those of you who have deployed, what are the the best military pre-deployment medical classes to attend as a PA and any recommendations for my medics? I've looked at ATRRS but would like to rank these so we can prioritize the funding. 3GeronimoPA--any words of wisdom from your recent return? Any resources you favor?
  7. We're trying to get an idea as to how many veterans in general are applying to PA school this cycle. Please take a second and go to this thread to vote! http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/forums/showthread.php/33183-Poll-For-All-Veterans! Thanks for your time!
