Hello Everyone! I am a junior in college. I am going to start my 2nd semester of my Junior year soon. I recently decided to pursue PA path and I am extremely confused. I don't want to take a break between my undergraduate and graduate schooling - do you think that will still be possible even though I decided too late? I do have 125 hours of health care hours - 25 hours of shadowing and 100 hours of volunteer so far. My goal is to work as a Medical Scribe this coming summer as well to gather some patient hours. Will it be ok if I mostly have just volunteer and shadowing hours? What should be my goal for my hours? Also, when should I start working on my application for PA school? I heard mixed things - some people have said that it is like medical school and need to start a year early while others have said I can do it in spring if I want to start college in fall. Which one is true? Thank you for all your help!
I just graduated from UC Davis and wanted to take a year off to get my health care experience but it's starting to seem like it will take forever to get training and then a job and fulfill my hours before applying. I'm trying not to get discouraged but I feel like I learned so much in undergrad and now I'm in slow mo waiting to move on to grad school with this whole hour requirement. But I REALLY want to be a PA so I'd like to get going on my hours - I just don't know what program I should choose (EMT, MA etc.) Any advice??
