  1. I recently wrote a blog post describing a typical day for me in PA school. Hope you find it useful and that it gives you an honest understanding of what PA school is like. I did one post for didactic year and one for clinical year. Enjoy! Didactic Year Clinical Year
  2. Hi everyone, I am new to the forums. I am a PA with 1 year of experience. I just got an offer in a family practice in the North Texas area. After talking with the providers there, the supervising doctor seems to be very patient with the PAs and willing to teach. I feel this is a good place to grow. I was wondering if this is a fair offer. I feel the pay is a little low and benefits seem a little on the low side too. Salary: 90k annually, work 8-5 and 4 hours on a weekend every month. Assuming 8 hour work days and 4 every month, $42.29/hr. Bonus: Very vague bonus. At discretion. Call sch
  3. Hey there, I am a second year PA student and I have a blog PAjourney.com where I post advice for students looking to get into the profession. Recently I wrote a post that I hope will help new PA students survive didactic year. I thought it would also be great if other experienced PA students gave advice in the comments section on what helped them survive. Because lets face it, the one year of didactic learning we do is probably harder than any academic year in any other major/degree/profession in existence. Med students have a long road ahead of them, but no single year of their educa
  4. This blog was recently promoted on our intranet and I've spent the last two days reading everything on it, alternately disgusted and amazed. Really well-written and understandable with great content from both the author, Dr. Bobbi Pritt, and knowledgeable readers. It's mostly case-based. Some of the cases have more background information than others. http://parasitewonders.blogspot.com/
  5. It's about to be a challenging journey full of ups and downs! I was in your shoes exactly 1 year ago when I finally got the courage together to apply for CASPA 2015-16. It was the first year with the new CASPA application page and the because of the HUGE volume of applicants, the website had crashed. I was already anxious enough talking myself into applying, and finding out that the year was so competitive that CASPA crashed added a new level to my worries. However, you push through and you get your 3 letters of recommendations. You take and submit your GRE scores. You get your officia
  6. Does anyone know of a medicine website or blog that is geared towards teaching certain topics in medicine? Maybe even geared towards medical topics that PAs need to know and should know in order to get survive class exams as well as the PANCE/PANRE? Would people find that as helpful as I think it would?
  7. Hey everyone, I thought it would be useful to list some of the blogs & websites that helped me get into PA school. There are a lot of writers out there with great advice and experience that you can learn from. They were so useful to me when I was applying that I started my own blog as a way of giving back. It is listed down below with the others. Please feel free to share other blogs/websites that have helped you on your journey! My blog: pajourney.com (Advice for Pre-PAs updated every two weeks. As I begin school this May I will also write journal entries of my experiences)
  8. One of the most important things you can accomplish in your personal statement is to demonstrate that you know the specific roles of a PA and why you want to become one. I recently wrote a blog entry on this topic that you should check out! Garunteed to help you write your personal statement. http://pajourney.com/2015/01/07/why-do-you-want-to-become-a-physician-assistant/
  9. Blog: During this inaugural semester, students and faculty have worked together through various challenges with the common goal of fostering academic, professional, and personal growth. Academically, the past four months have been grueling, yet exciting. Professionally, we have been challenged to think with wisdom and empathy. Personally, our energy and brain-power have been tested, but we have all succeeded. With only two weeks until finals, we are the closest group of 24 strangers there ever was, and we’re better for our experiences. Sincerely, CH Update (6/11/2014) Gardner-Web
  10. Hello all, I'm a UT Southwestern student and I just created a blog for current PA students and pre-PA students as well as current practicing PA's. Feel free to follow my blog and update yourselves on current topics that are informative and vital to our understanding as PA's. Please feel free to comment and forward my articles as well! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com Thanks! Paul
  11. Hi, I'm a current UT Southwestern PA student. I recently created a blog for pre-physcian assistant students with the purpose to inform students of important topics useful for interviews and in general for their own future practice. New Certification Process for PAs, PAEA Program DirectoryThese are just a few topics on my blog. Feel free to visit the link below, follow my blog, comment on articles with questions, or like specific articles. Any feedback would help! I'll be posting topics soon with resources that many students may be unaware about or providing reviews on resources that you
  12. Getting ready to apply this year and it just occurred to me.....Is my hair cut inappropriate for the PA profession?? I currently shave my head...I use a 1 guard so it is VERY short. I have done this almost all my life and have never considered changing it. Does this "Skin Head" appearance discredit my professionalism with regards to the profession?
  13. Hey everyone, I've been blogging for a little over a year now and realized I never posted about it here. So, if you would like, check out my blog. Mostly interviews with PA-Cs and PA-Ss (there's a page that sorts them by program) with a few random posts with my thoughts. Mostly programs and people from Texas, with a few exceptions. Enjoy! http://prephysicianassistantblog.blogspot.com PS - Any PAs out there who would ike to/be open to interviewing with me, PM me please!
  14. I have been offered a full time job with 100% paid PA program tuition by my former employer, a large healthcare system where I worked for 17 years. Our family relocated 4 years ago to a different state. If I were to take this wonderful opportunity, I would need to drive 3 hours one way on Sunday evenings, stay for the week, and drive 3 hours home on Friday evenings. We have children ages 8 and 10, and it would be a difficult thing as a family to decide if they should come with me, stay here with their dad, and of course, the ultimate question, is it really worth the sacrifice to break the fami
  15. Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I am recording my whole process of getting accepted to PA school, and my experiences throughout school. From getting patient care experience, pre-reqs, to recently getting accepted into PA school I will put it all down. I am trying to include any tips and tricks that I feel worked for me so that others can benefit from them. I will answer any questions and give my advice to those who are still working on getting into PA school. (Any little advice helps along the way). http://djthepa.blogspot.com/ I am planning on recording through P
