  1. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into Boston University's program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but
  2. Hi all, I am moving to Boston this summer, and I am on the job hunt. My significant other matched into residency, and we're so excited! However, I don't have a job lined up yet, and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for places to look/contacts? There are so many opportunities, but I have not heard back from a single employer. I am more interested in Medicine subspecialties (I have 1.5 years experience as a Hospitalist PA). I am also open to Dermatology, Urgent Care, and some surgical specialties (plastics, maybe). We will be living in South End, but I am willing to commute. Hop
  3. Hi everyone, I am looking for the opportunity to shadow a PA in Boston. There is only one very competitive shadowing program here so I was wondering if there are any PAs that would personally want a shadow-ee :) Thank you!
  4. Hi everyone, I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program. When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know. Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted? Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks? Thanks!
  5. Hello- I will be moving to Boston, MA with my SO who will be a fellow at Brigham & Womens Hospital next June. I am currently practicing in Urgent Care in Pennsylvania. I have a little over 1 year experience with a company I love, this was my first job out after graduation. At the time of the official move in June 2017 I will have 2 year of UC experience. This being my first PA job, I have no experience with relocation (new state license, when to start searching for a job, headhunters, etc). I had planned to start looking in October - is this too soon? When should I get my MA state lic
  6. 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
  7. Does anyone here know much about Tufts? I couldn't find it on the list of PA schools... Any current students? Do you enjoy the program? Pros/Cons? Like Boston? Would you do anything different if you could start over again? Thanks, just curious if any students in the program read this forum.
  8. Hi all!! I haven't seen a thread for this year's application cycle so I thought I would start one and say hello. I submitted my app late June.
  9. Just got invited for an interview at BU and noticed there wasn't already a thread for this admissions cycle, so I thought I'd start one. Anyone else applying/interviewing?
  10. So all of the forums I've found online on this topic are 5+ years old, and since I frequent the PA forums here I figured maybe it was worth a shot asking. Does anyone have any experience or know someone who took an EMT course in Boston? Any feedback you can provide on pros/cons, how the teaching was structured, and what sort of clinical or ambulance experience you got from it? Since Northeastern took away their program, and the program at MIT is only available to MIT students/employees, I've pretty much narrowed it down to Boston EMS vs. Boston University. Although I don't want price
  11. I'm a first year PA student in DC and am looking to set up clinical rotations in both Boston, MA and Charlotte, NC in either Pediatrics, Women's Health/OBGYN, and/or Behavioral Medicine/Psych. Does anyone have any contacts or resources that may be helpful in setting these up? I'm not too sure where to start looking for possible preceptors. Any advice is appreciated!
  12. Hey everyone, new grad here, and of course, since it's my first time going through this, I'm looking for advice from those who know much more than I! I was offered a job in the Boston, MA metro area. Here are the details... just looking for general suggestions and/or thoughts in terms of whether this is a fair offer... Job: Inpatient cardiology consults Schedule: 4 ten hour shifts/week, no nights/weekends/holidays, no call Salary: $85,000/yr CME: $1500/year, no additional days off PTO: 20 days/year (earned time accrual, so with my 4 ten hour shifts it would probably be more l
  13. Dave asked me to post this here: Impossible For Some, Possible For Others I am fascinated by the different socialization process between many NPs and PAs. Not all of us, but many of us. I was at a PA conference speaking to a PA leader in a high position. This gentleman was a very nice fellow and clearly and honestly wanted to move the PA profession ahead but as we spoke I felt we were speaking different languages. As I would say something he would say, “That will never happen in my state”. Now let me tell you I have been a PA political being for almost 40 years. I was Vice-President of my PA
  14. After my first two+ years of PA practice (and steep learning curve!) I will be relocating from Southern California to Boston for my husband's job. We are not planning to make the move until spring of 2013, however I am already looking into licensing requirements and job options. With just the little bit of research that I have done so far, it seems that Massachusetts seems like a GREAT state for PA practice! If you are a PA with current or past work experience in the Boston area, I would love to connect with you to discuss what the PA-employment atmosphere is like. I have experience in Em
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. Based on the locked thread I made a bunch of phonecalls. This is what I came up with: Tufts University will be starting to accept applications in the summer of 2012 for a class begining in 2013. This program will grant an MS. The curriculum is very early on in development. The gentleman I spoke with was actually very surprised I had even heard of it. No word yet on prereqs or CASPA as far as he knows. Tufts has a medical school and a DDM school as well, and have their own hospital (Tufts Medical Center, formerly New England Medical Center). Tufts is well known for their transplant and
  18. To Whom it May Concern, I am a pre-PA student living in Boston with a BA cum laude from Boston University and am looking to shadow any PA who would be gracious enough to let me follow him/her around. I am willing to travel to the Greater Boston area as long as the area is accessible by some form of public transportation since I do not have a car. I have cold called every hospital and clinic in the area and because of privacy issues have not had any luck with finding shadowing opportunities. Please message me with any opportunities! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Mari
