Hey guys my name is Geena and I'm a PA at a primary care in Philadelphia. We are currently hiring scribes and medical assistants (no experience required- we will train). This is a great opportunity for pre-PA's who need experience hours! Message me for details
Hey guys, This application cycle did not go well for me and even though it’s not over, yet, I’m expecting that it will be soon. With this in mind, I need honest advice about what to improve for two cycles from now (I don’t have enough time to improve between now and April). Here are my stats for this cycle: GPA: 3.40 SCIENCE GPA: 3.22 GRE: 308 HCE: 4800 hours as chief medical scribe (emergency room) PA Shadowing: 80 hours (ER, ortho, primary care) LOR: 5; 2 physician’s, 1 Medical director, 1 PA, 1 senior organic chemistry professor. I have a plan to obtain CNA licensure and work as a CNA until next Application; retake any science intensive courses that I got a B- or less in; volunteer with disadvantaged patients. Does anyone have additional advice? Does a CNA give you more solid experience vs something like a Medical assistant? Does anyone know if they take personal downfalls into account (both parents passed away in college and high school)? Does post bacc have to be at a university? (Asking because of cost). Any advice would be appreciated, thank you so much.
