Profession

  1. Hello so first off, I'm a senior in high school interested in the health field, and looking mainly at the physician assistant profession. Currently, I don't seem to have the drive to go through 4 years of med school + and many more years of residency. I would also hate to pay off all the debt as well. I want to finish school early, less debt, start a family, and then possibly start a business. However, I heard that PA's have a hard time starting their own clinic and they must have a MD with them all times, is that true? The main reason to start my own clinic is because I want to be a little mo
  2. Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527 prePA conference final draft flyer On CAMPUS.pdf
  3. 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
  4. Hello! i am a sophomore in college and set to graduate in May 2020. I am having troubles finding health care hours. Every job i’ve seen is full time, and i can’t do that with 18-21 credits every semester and two kids. The only job i’ve found is a Direct Support Professional. These people work with disabled people, kids and adults. Working with kids means watching them, giving them their medications, taking to therapy etc, and adults live in group home settings. So feeding, medications, etc. I was wondering if this would count for HCE? The program i’m looking into just says a list of some jobs

    Waived GRE

    Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!
  7. I took Organic chemistry last semester and got a C-, so now my science GPA is ruined. Are there any schools that don't require Ochem as a pre-req?
  8. Hi! Just wanted to start this for anyone who is looking to apply to Dominican Univeristy’s PA Program! I’m a current student in their program, so please let me know if you have any questions with applying!! Good luck!!
  9. I'm attending Arizona State University online. I live in Georgia and I'm 24 years old. ASU is a quarter-based system, which means I get college credits on a quarterly basis instead of a semester basis. All PA and AA schools (I'm interested in both) require a certain amount of prerequisite hours, but at ASU, I would be about an hour or two short in a lot of them, like biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, etc. So, me getting a degree in biology from ASU is kind of pointless, because I'd have to take some additional prerequisite classes at my local college anyways. I should also mention I have
  10. What is it's reputation, are they a good school? I saw they are also having a PA program in Richmond, VA. What about that one?
  11. Is there a correlation between the prestige of a PA school's program and getting a job, or do your boards/GPA in PA school/whatever matter more?
  12. Hello all! I am a practicing physician assistant just 6 months out of school from a bachelor's in PA studies. I want to get my masters but unsure of whether to go with health administration route or public health route. Not sure which one would mean what for me and what are my options to grow professionally. I just need some opinions and guidance. Thanks everyone.
  13. Hi all! I am really struggling narrowing down the list of schools I want to apply to. I have already weeded out those that don't offer a masters, those where I do not fit the pre-requisites, and those that are too rural. I am not picky on location, but I would like to be somewhere suburban or urban. I also would like to be somewhere that the clinical rotations are not a very far drive (I am having trouble figuring this out because it is not explicitly listed on most schools' websites). I am mostly struggling to eliminate schools because I am worried about not getting in. I graduate this semest
  14. Hello All, Time has come for me to decide between Pace University (Lenox Hill in NYC) and Rosalind Franklin (North Chicago). Rosalind Franklin is higher ranked, costs an estimated $40,000 less, has a smaller class size, is interprofessional, is closer to my hometown (I can see my parents more often, they're older), and I felt like their curriculum was better organized. The main pros to Pace is the location (who wouldn't want to live in Manhattan!), and ties to hospitals in NYC- I could see myself living and working in a big city like NYC post graduation. I'm reaching out to this foru
  15. For those of us with a bit of downtime or waiting to matriculate, what are some excellent podcasts to help get those brain juices flowing!? Please share podcast recommendations pertaining to any PA school related material, clinical, or specialty knowledge in particular. I'll generally nerd out on The Wilderness and Environmental Medicine Live and Emergency Med Cases podcasts (even though a lot of this material will eventually be outside our scope, it's still fun to learn about) in addition to a few others non-PA related.
  16. I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for people to post their successful CASPA essays so that new applicants can get a better idea of what schools are looking for as they write their own. I will begin by posting a link to mine below (it is posted in my blog). Please comment with your own examples if you are an accepted student. My CASPA Personal Statement (as an example)
  17. Hello PA Forum, I wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations for specific PA schools considering my following goals and statistics. I would like to apply this summer for 2019 matriculation. Goals: Ideally I would like to work as a PA in a hospital setting. While I don't quite know my exact area of interest, I prefer primary care, emergency, and internal medicine over surgery. Additionally, I have a strong interest in contributing to research. Statistics/Background: 3.5 cumulative GPA, 3.45 science GPA at a private academic university 159 Verbal (
  18. I've been accepted to a great PA program which I will start in May. I know there is probably no way to totally prepare for school, and they will teach you everything you need to know, but I have great tuition benefits for undergraduate and graduate level classes at my current job and I can take classes for next to nothing. Any current students, if you could retake or wish you had a better background in any one subject before you started, what would it be?
  19. Hi, I recently began researching into this but am I able to go to an international PA program and then work as a PA in the United States? Is there a specific test that I would need to take or are there any US accredited international schools that I can go to and then return to the US without taking the test? Please let me know!
  20. I just submitted my supplemental application for the UCPAP. Does anyone know when they send out interview invites?
  21. Okay, so I've been doing some research on Physician Assistants and PA schools and different routes to go about doing so. When I first applied to college I was a nursing major but changed it to Gen Ed because I thought I wanted to go into education, but nursing/medical field has stayed on my mind as I was pretty well set on becoming a nurse. I'm still in my first semester at a community college (I was going to complete my first year at community college and then transfer to a 4-year university) so it wouldn't be too hard to change my major; I've only taken the basic classes, i.e math, English,
  22. I'm a senior in high school, and I'm really interested in the health field. I'm deciding between a PA or a MD/DO. However, my Indian parents are really pushing/forcing me to go to a 6 year foreign med school to become a doctor in the U.S. As of right now, I would rather be a PA because: Start working faster Paying off your debts faster compared to MD Start a family faster Less schooling However, I am young, and I feel I might regret not becoming a doctor when I'm older. My parents keep discouraging me whenever I tell them that I want to be a PA. They say that
  23. Hello to all, Just looking for advice, My GPA is a 2.98 cumulative and a 3.8 with science pre reqs required for school. Furthermore my last 45/60 credit hours have been a 3.5. I beleive with the latter 2 statistics I could be a very qualified candidate. I also have been a physical therapy aid for over 2 years, done mission trips to other countries played professional basketball, etc. Does anyone know of any schools that view more holistically and look at the last 45/60 credit hours?
  24. So I was recently accepted into the program of my choice, and it starts in January. I have plans to save up for a laptop/tablet that I can use while in school, but I am not sure where to start. I usually buy the cheapest laptops BestBuy or Walmart sells that fit my needs, but I want a higher end laptop for school that I can use to take notes with and run any computer apps that my school requires. What seems to work for you and your classmates?
  25. Hello, I am finishing my undergrad and will be graduating with a Bachelor's in Health Science from Ohio in December. I want to apply for the cycle starting in April 2018.
