  1. Hello everyone! I am in my 2nd semester of PA school and am in search of preceptors in my area. I live in Greenville, SC and currently commute to Hendersonville, NC for class which is about 40 minutes each day. Because of this, I am really hoping to find preceptors closer to home. I am currently in search of any preceptors in Greenville, Travelers Rest, Greer, Mauldin, Easley, Powdersville, Taylors, and really anywhere in the north west South Carolina area! If you or anyone you know is interested in taking on a PA student who is super eager to learn and be in the upstate area, plea
  2. Hi everyone! I am currently a PA-S1 in my second semester, starting clinical rotations in the fall. My program offers 8 core rotations: EM, Family med, Internal med, surgery, Peds, OB/GYN, Geriatric meds, and behavioral health with only one elective. Popular electives include: any surgery subspecialty (cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, etc.), cardiology, psychiatry, orthopedics... and more. I was wondering if anyone had advice on picking an elective since there are many of these sub specialties I would love to gain experience in! if you faced a similar scenario, what helped you w
  3. Eager to find a PA/NP/MD provider willing to precept me for a 2 week rotation in April! Ideally a specialty practice but also open to primary care. Thanks!
  4. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT,
  5. Dear PA Student, My name is Dr. Leonard. I am a physician assistant and a PA educator. With the ongoing pandemic my concern for the future of the current PA students, especially those on clinical rotations, concerns me. This is why I am emailing students about PA Excel and their HELP line for PANCE review. I used this program 6 years ago and it has only gotten better! It is a PANCE review like no other. I do NOT work for PA Excel, although I may do some anatomy and physiology review for them in the future, but I love and believe in their product! But check them out for y

  7. Hi everyone, I am looking for a capstone rotation in Austin, TX. I am graduating in December and the rotation would take place from late Aug to early Dec. I'm not looking for any specific specialty. Anything helps!! Thank you
  8. Hey guys, Could you tell me what the clinical sites are for the SUNY Upstate PA program?
  9. I have recently started a rotation at an ER. I am being asked to do lots of EKGs, transport patients to the floor, put them in gowns, getting blankets, helping them with bed pans and changing diapers. I'm not above these tasks, but I'm just not sure if this is the norm. I'm being assigned way more of these duties than getting to see patients or perform procedures. Has anyone else had a similar experience in an ER? TIA
  10. Hello! I am currently still in the didactic phase of PA school in New Orleans but I will be starting rotations next May. My goal is to work in Houston after PA school, so because of this I would like to do my preceptorship there! The problem is that I do not have any contacts in Houston (except for my significant other who is a CPA). My preferred specialty is trauma surgery, but I am also interested in ED, general surgery, cardio-thoracic, or plastics. If anyone knows who I can get in contact with about doing my preceptorship in Houston or the surrounding area it would be forever appreci
  11. Hello, I am a current, first-year Physician Assistant student in TN but am trying to return home to AZ for clinical rotations. Does anyone know of any providers who may be willing to be preceptors? I am starting my clinical rotations in January 2018. Thank you! Elizabeth
  12. Hey there I'm currently wrapping up my 2nd semester of PA school and have pretty much established my personal study routine. I'm wondering how I will need to adjust for rotations this summer. Do you find yourself studying for day to day clinical situations or focusing on EOR exams? Also how many hours/night & weekends? Thanks!
  13. Dear PA Student or PA Grad, After personally tutoring PA students matriculating in PA schools for 2 years, I began tutoring graduates who were about to take the PANCE for the first time. 100% of the first five I tutored scored high. After teaching for over 20 years, I have made these subjects relatively simple to learn without memorization! And since 2012, I have helped 57 students pass the PANCE and PANRE. My students were from schools all across the U.S. *Of those 5 first time takers, 100% passed. *Of those who had failed once, 97% passed. *Of those who failed twice, 93% passed
  14. Hi everyone: I've found many varying answers to this question: What is a reasonable salary to expect for a surgical PA in the Bay Area (Marin County specifically)? Here are my specs: 11 years surgical experience FT and per diem (cardiac (non-operative), vascular, general, hand, also anesthesia), currently working in emergency medicine for the past 1 1/2 years in Boston. Fluent in Spanish, proficient in French and Portuguese. PA degree from Cornell. Currently halfway through an online healthcare MBA. Offer negotiations are ongoing at the moment, so any help would be much appreciate

    Hi everyone, This might sound silly but what is an interim? I took a class in the summer that lasted 10 weeks (I'm in a quarter system) And took classes for summer session I and II. This 10 week class was between the two sessions so would I put it as interim or just either summer 1 or summer 2? I hope that makes sense.
  16. Dear PA Student or PA Grad, After personally tutoring PA students matriculating in PA schools for 2 years, I began tutoring graduates who were about to take the PANCE for the first time. 100% of the first five I tutored scored high. And since 2012, I have helped 52 students pass the PANCE and PANRE. Of those 3 first time takers, 100% passed. Of those who had failed once, 97% passed. Of those who failed twice, 93% passed. And of those who failed three times, 91% passed after taking my course. Those are awesome results. Now I am pleased to offer my complete personal PANCE/PANRE tut
  17. Hello, I'm a current PA student who was 3 months into clinical rotations when I had to leave my school for non-academic reasons. I'm trying to see if there are any current PA students, or practicing PA's who have been in a similar situation and had to transfer programs, or were able to get into another school via advanced placement. Through my own research here are the only schools that I have found so far: Baylor Union College Shenandoah Rutgers Rochester Institute of technology Even with these mentioned here, the consideration for transfer or advanced placement ca
  18. Hey all - I am a current 2nd year PA student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. I am interested in moving to Denver after I graduate. I am not in a position to do full clinical rotations in the Colorado area due to finances, but I am hopeful I can meet a surgeon or surgical PA in the Denver area that is willing to allow shadowing on one Friday or on a weekend each month. My interests thus far are in dermatology, cardiology, neurology and urology (all very different, I know...). My best friend lives in Denver and I plan to drive out to Denver and stay w

  20. This is the description while I was looking for HCE jobs in the area... "The Patient Safety Aide is a caregiver who is visually attentive to a patient at risk due to meeting the criteria and having an order for a 1:1 patient watch." Do you think this is adequate HCE experience?
  21. Hi all, I'm really stuck on not wanting to completely scrap my last year's PS. The thing is, my original personal statement states all the influences and reasons/drive/motivation to become a PA. I mean, that innate drive shouldn't change in a year, right? So does that mean I should rewrite this part of my PS? Thanks in advance! :)
