  1. There is an awesome organization called ThePAC (Physician Assistants of Color) that holds diversity events in multiple cities across the U.S. The next one will be in Detroit, Michigan on September 28, 2019. The event is a great opportunity for all three levels of the profession! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thepac-takes-detroit-tickets-70091765357 Pre-PAs get to talk directly to program directors from the local/surrounding region (this event will have 7), and get specific advice about their application profile from programs directly as well as experienced PA students and PA-Cs. PA-S and PA-C get to fraternize and network with each other as well as tap into resources such as job recruiters, financial advisors, and transition to practice information. There are always lots of giveaways such as medical equipment, PANCE/PANRE prep, discounts on scrub companies, and more. This event is open to any and everyone no matter the race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. If you cannot attend this event, give them a follow on IG @thepa.c or FB 'Physician Assistants of Color' so you can get notified of when the next event/location will be.
  2. Hello, I am seeking advice for a friend who unfortunately has waited until her last elligible year (year 6) and month (Dec) it seems to take her 1st PANRE. She seems to be under the impression that if she does not pass on this one attempt, she will have to return to PA school...therefore losing current position in an ICU since shell no longer have the -C. ( I don't believe our state of residence allows PAs to work without it). When researching the NCCPA and even this board I don't see any information about what would happen in a situation like this. I don't doubt that shell pass as she was towards the top of the class and typically does well on exams...but I also find it interesting that theres no info on this anywhere. Does anyone know?
  3. Hello! I feel blessed to be coming to you guys with such a problem, but it's been weighing on me and need advice from current PA-S's and PA-C's. I have been accepted to two schools: School A which is 20 minutes away from my current living space and School B which is closer to my parents, but still about an hour away. Schools A and B seem pretty comparable in terms of curriculum, program length (A: 27 mo versus B: 25 mo), PANCE pass rates (A: 97 versus B: 99), tuition (a difference of 3K), and employment rates after graduation. The main differences that I see are that school B is associated with a medical school, so networking opportunities and strength in name and that school B will end up costing almost 40K more due to cost of living expenses. School B was my top choice prior to interviewing but was not the first school to get back to me, therefore, I have not placed my deposit. School B is also where most of my college friends settled and has an opportunity for research, which is important to me. School A has cheaper living costs, and somewhat of a support system from my current workplace friends. l have seen two basic schools of thought for this quandary, which include: Go to the cheapest school, you'll thank yourself later. Go to the school that you will regret not going to if you choose otherwise. Do you agree with either of these or have your own idea based on your own experience? Any anecdotes proving either correct or other statements would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  4. What are my chances to get into a PA program? What programs would accept me? Or should I apply to post bacc/ or masters program? I have a 2.88 GPA. BS in Human Biology. I have not taken the GRE. I am 26yrs Female AA. I have well over 1000 hours of clinical experience (paid, nonpaid/volunteer). I currently took a leave of absence from my position as a High-school science teacher, to take Biochemistry, Epidemiology and study for MCAT (plan on applying to Master of Biomedical to gain acceptance into DO school which is my ultimate dream). I am also considering PA school MY Letters Of Recommendation is from a Chief PA at a hospital and 2 MDs that are Directors of Hospital. I want to remain hopeful but my dreams seem like they are drifting further away from me each day. I need advice.

  7. From the perspective of a PA-S who is on the cusp of completing the journey through the bowels of hell known as "Didactic Year" and going into the Clinical Phase, I've heard a lot of pros and cons on CAQ's. Basically, I started this topic with the motivation to find out if there are any major differences in benefits other than just sharpening your knowledge in a particular area, such as pay increases, responsibility/ duty increases, increase in the amount of procedures you can perform, hospital/ practice privileges, job availability, etc. Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  12. Hey Guys! I am a PA student about to graduate this December. My husband is a Navy Doctor contemplating being stationed in Guam. I have no colleagues that have practiced internationally as a civilian PA and was curious how and who you would contact regarding jobs available in Guam for a PA. I am nervous about practicing overseas, but have no other option if my husband will be stationed there. I would love any information or contacts you may know of that I can get in touch with who have or are curently practicing in Guam or Internationally. Any feedback on experiences would be greatly appreciated. This will be my first job out of school, which is another reason I am nervous

  14. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. I could really use any input. I recently passed my board and am eager to start working. The main attraction for choosing the PA profession was that "PAs can work anywhere." Wrong. Every employer asks for at least 1 year experience as a PA. I'm beyond frustrated - how can I get experience working as a PA if no one wants to hire a brand new grad with 0 years in practice? So, I tried to expand my net and searched for out of state work. Again, another frustration - they want to their specific state license - aka money for their own state license. How can I afford that license if I'm trying to look for work to pay off my student loans but no one wants to hire someone with no experience? Money is down to the last wire and I've applied to many many places that I can't even keep count of how many CVs I've submitted. Not to mention the frustration of creating a new profile, password, individual cover letters. All I can think of is to apply to a residency program in order to get "experience and training." Any inout would be appreciated.

  16. I'm wondering if anyone knows the specific answer to this in regards to the pre-reqs for SJVC...I'm a previous applicant from Bakersfield who has been working to improve my grades for the last couple years, and I'm hoping to apply again to this program for next cycle...but I've been having difficulties getting a spot in our local CC's anatomy and physio class... I've taken one half here at our CC, and due to there only being a few sections offered, I resorted to taking the other half at another community college out of town during a summer session, just to try and get it done before the application cycle... I know some schools don't accept this without permission, but I was wondering if anyone knew if this was acceptable for the pre-req requirements at San Joaquin.. if that's the case, I'm so afraid that it will take me forever to get into the other half of the A&P here in Bakersfield...I'm having trouble trying to take the complete one year series in succession... Thanks in advance to anyone who knows anything.
  17. I was thinking of submitting my application now with a whole bunch of pending classes ( I graduate this fall) but currently I have a 4.0 spring semester GPA should I wait for the spring grades to be turned in and then submit my transcripts? or should i go ahead and submit it now and hope that I am in the first batch of applicants? (Submitting everything by May 25 vs. April 30) Would it be a big difference? please help.
