  1. Hello everyone! Thought I would get this page started so we can help each other out through this process. Good luck!
  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. Is anyone able to speak about what it's like to be a student here or may have personal experience in this program? How is the IPE? I'm considering this school greatly primarily because of the rotations and lecture format.
  4. HI! I am currently an undergrad and looking at PA schools in California (I am out of state). I would love input on the different schools and if it matters in the job field if you choose one over the other? Given that I am out of state I am leaning toward the cheaper schools such as Western University, but I am scared if this will matter in the job search that it is not highly ranked. Thanks!
  5. Hi all- Wondering if anyone has any experience obtaining fluoroscopy permit in California? I am currently an IR PA in Illinois (can't independently use fluoro) and I'm relocating to California. Mixed information regarding obtaining fluoro permit out there. I was planning to do the AAPA online fluoro course until I was told I have to go through a California school. I was also told that there are currently no schools in California that accept PAs and that I must call around to ask if some place will accept me. This sounds crazy. There has to be a way. Any input?
  6. Looking to do a rotation in the Bay area in 2021 as I would like to move there after graduation to practice. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on clinical rotations anywhere in the San Jose, San Fransisco, or Oakland area. Open to any specialty. Thank you!
  7. I'm a second year PA student going to school in VA, but I'm from CA. It's been awhile and I don't have any contacts in CA to do my rotations. I need advice/ideas on how to find rotations, preferably in the LA area for this July and August (my elective rotations). My main interest are orthopedics and dermatology, but really any rotation help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  8. https://www.fresno.ucsf.edu/actspar Wondering if anyone has any experience/information/thoughts UCSF Fresno, specifically this ACS/Trauma Surgery Residency. Considering relocating for the opportunity. New grad, I liked what I saw during the visit. Not looking for some one to make a decision for me, but any information would be great. Thanks

  12. What is the process of creating a clinical site or at least an affiliation with a doctor or organization for one student to do a rotation at? I have been desperately trying to get clinical rotations in CA, my home, while I am currently out of state. I have situational depression and I know that being able to do rotations back at home would help immensely with my focus, happiness, and health, but my school won't budge in helping me. Their reasoning was that it's too much work for them to make affiliations with new sites. I have found doctors willing to take me in for rotations though, so the on
  13. I haven't seen anything on the forum about this school so I decided To start a new thread for the 2016-2017 application cycle at the University of La Verne. The program is not accredited yet. I submitted my application yesterday. According to the program director they do not utilize rolling admissions. Has anybody else applied here?
  14. Hi all! Just wanted to get this topic started for this years application cycle. Received my email today that they have received my application and will be reviewing files on a rolling basis. This is my second year applying to PA school but first year applying to CDU. Look forward to chatting with you all throughout this cycle.

  16. I am looking at relocating. What do you think is a fair hourly rate (no benefits) for an experienced pediatric physician assistant in California?
  17. Hello all, My name is Michelle, an aspiring Physician Assistant. I am currently working on my CASPA application, and I would like to ask for your help. I am in need of a PA shadowing opportunity in the Los Angeles area. I have been reaching out to different websites and hospitals for an opportunity, but I've always been turned down. I hope you can help me find this opportunity. Thank you!
  18. Hello everyone who are applying to the University of the Pacific PA program. It will be in Sacramento. Just thought I should start a thread for us. I am re-applying to this program as a 2nd time applicant. Best of luck!
  19. Hi, I am looking for PA's to shadow in the San Jose area, but I am willing to travel further for shadowing. I am a pre-PA student entering my 4th year as an undergraduate at UCLA, pursuing a degree in Biology. I am currently a volunteer at my university hospital's child life department and I also volunteer with an organization that provides healthcare services to the underserved community. I also worked with geriatric patients in a program that paired patients with students. I would be interested in shadowing PA's of any specialty. Please send me a private message if you are willing to le

  21. Hey everyone, I am a new graduate and I have been working for an Ortho and Spine group in southern CA for 6 months. I started taking phone call about 3 months after my start date without additional compensation. I currently do phone call every 3rd weekend. My job is now discussing that I take hospital call as well, but they only pay if the PA gets called in for trauma surgery. The PA does not get compensated for being on call and not getting called in. The PA does not get paid for rotating on patient's during the week or on weekends. If a patient is in the hospital during the week, then
  22. Hello! I'm looking for a current or future opening to shadow a PA in the IE, OC or LA! If anyone can help me, please let me know!! Thank you in advance :)
  23. Hi I am looking for where I can find a comprehensive summary of major practicing laws in California and New York? I found the handbooks online, however they seem rather detailed and long and I am trying to look for something more comprehensive so I have a general understanding. If anyone knows any major differences in the laws in these two states that would be great too! Thanks!

    CA PA laws

    Hi all - Is anyone here active with CAPA or with working to improve the practice laws in CA? I know we had some improvements last year but some are still a bit archaic. I'd like to find some like-minded folks so we can work to drive this forward.
  25. Any one else had an issue? And if so how did you get it done? I currently have resulted to asking my congressman to intervene. So before I became a PA I was a combat Medic with the US Army. I maintained a license not through an individual state but through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. Since becoming a PA-C I need my license to practice in the state of CA. The state of CA requires form PA-7 to be sent from NREMT directly to the state exhibiting a letter of good standing. They have lost my forms on multiple occasions (4 to be exact) they won't ever give me any oth
