  1. Hi, all! I'm hoping to reach out for some help. I'd like to get both of my elective rotations in South Korea next year (2022--more specifically Oct-December 2022 near Bucheon, Seoul). I've got a place to call home there and it would make my future family's year. My program has been researching and reaching out to other programs but we haven't had much luck. There aren't any PAs in Korea so I will likely have to either piggyback off a medical rotation or find a physician who's willing to take me under their wing. Does anyone have experience or know of someone who has travelled abroad for a rotation? If it was in Korea, even better!! I'd love to reach out or network with them to try and make some connections. I'm unfamiliar with so many things, even more so now that COVID complicates things (opportunities out there, visa requirements, quarantine, rotation lengths, etc.) Any crumbs would be much appreciated.
  2. Hello everyone! I am in my 2nd semester of PA school and am in search of preceptors in my area. I live in Greenville, SC and currently commute to Hendersonville, NC for class which is about 40 minutes each day. Because of this, I am really hoping to find preceptors closer to home. I am currently in search of any preceptors in Greenville, Travelers Rest, Greer, Mauldin, Easley, Powdersville, Taylors, and really anywhere in the north west South Carolina area! If you or anyone you know is interested in taking on a PA student who is super eager to learn and be in the upstate area, please let me know! Thank you so much.
  3. Hello there, This is my first time writing on the PA forum. I’ve been having really bad anxiety since the start of rotations and need some words of wisdom. I have been a very good student all my life. I maintained above a 3.5 GPA throughout my undergrad and I received As and Bs in all my classes though out my didactic year of PA school. I have passed all my EOREs and received good evaluations from my preceptors for the rotations I had so far, but I feel like I forget everything I learned from my previous rotations and didactic year, thus, I feel dumb and I feel like a fraud. I am currently on my 5th rotation (which is Cardiology) and I am still not feeling confident in myself and feel like I am no where close to being the PA I want to be. I grew up having ADHD and have taken various medication since I was young, but I feel like my medication no longer works because my anxiety is so bad that I can’t study during my down time. Also, my anxiety is affecting the way I think, communicate with peers and patients, and even sleep. I take medication for anxiety, but I do not want to increase the dose until I get my sleep problems taken care of. I feel like I should take a step back and take care of my own health first, but I am so close to graduating and I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to start my career feeling burnt out and not getting nights of sleep because of feeling incompetent. Just looking for some advice. Thank you!
  4. I am currently working on finishing out my second to last didactic semester and starting to plan for clinical rotations. I worked as a ED tech prior to PA school and loved it. I also worked a telemetry/cardiac floor tech and between that and lots of shadowing was most interested in EM. I would consider primary care and hospital medicine as well. Is an emergency medicine residency a must in order to work ED? Can anyone give pros and cons? I am interested in a residency, but also would consider primary care or hospitalist medicine and maybe transitioning to ER eventually if I could not get an ER job right away without residency. Is that unreasonable to think of transitioning? As far as rotations are there any rotations to try to get to either prepare for a EM residency or to apply for ED jobs without residency? We have 3 electives, plan to do extra EM electives. Is that the best way to use all 3 extra electives? Or add Trauma surgery, urgent care, critical care/ICU?
  5. Hello All! In search of preceptors!! I am currently a PAS1 student and our school is looking to expand our clinical rotations for next year. I would absolutely love to do my rotations at home in Chicago and our school will allow us to plan away rotations if we make contacts and provide the preceptor (can be PA, NP, DO, or MD). BUT rotations anywhere are very welcome!!! If you, or any of your colleagues would welcome a student rotation in your office please PM me. I would greatly appreciate any and all advice, Thank you!
  6. Hey, I'm just rolling through to see if I can help expand your studying database. Check out this post of various resources you can utilize to help you ACE the EOR exams, and eventually the PANCE!!! I hope this helps... The final link is to my personal study guides, yes I know I do the most! https://randomjournalposts.blogspot.com/2020/02/how-to-study-in-pa-school.html
  7. Hey all -- New to the forum. I'm a post-BA student with a degree in Geography/Economics, where I focused on community development and the more sociological side of things... Years after my graduation, I decided to take the plunge into the medical field instead. I currently am an EMS worker with the goal to be involved with the Global Health field in the future (main interest in water/sanitation/infectious diseases, etc.).. Given the short background, my thought process is directed at doing a P.A. program with the hopes of being able to utilize that both domestically and abroad... SO -- I suppose my main questions are: 1.) Does this seem like a good approach, given my main interest being in global health? I'm currently 29 -- so to try and backtrack at this point and attempt to go to Med School seems like an idea I'm being nudged away from... especially from physicians I've met en route at hospitals and others that I know. Additionally -- I'm wondering if there are any sorts of databases that show P.A. programs with International Clinical Elective rotations? Going from site to site to try and find my best case scenario is becoming somewhat wasteful in terms of time utilization it seems. OR -- better yet, have you heard of any programs that seem to offer this opportunity and/or are the best types of programs for this interest? May seem like a pretty broad and rounded question, but thought maybe you all could offer some insight. Thanks a ton! Michael
  8. Hello, I am a first year PA student at Kettering College in Kettering, Ohio. I am from Michigan in the Metro-Detroit area and am hoping to come back to Michigan to do my clinical rotations starting in early September 2018. I will be living in the Metro-Detroit area so I am looking for rotations around that area or in Toledo, but I'm open to other ares in Michigan or Northern Ohio. If anyone knows of any rotation opportunities or preceptors that are taking PA students please let me know. Any advice or direction is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  9. Hello, I am very interested in UNE PA school and was hoping that a current student would be able to provide some information on clinical rotations. There does not seem to be any information online about it. Are the rotations in Maine? Are they set up by the program or do students set them up themselves? Any other info would be great! Thanks
  10. Hello, I am a current, first-year Physician Assistant student in TN but am trying to return home to AZ for clinical rotations. Does anyone know of any providers who may be willing to be preceptors? I am starting my clinical rotations in January 2018. Thank you! Elizabeth
  11. Hi Future Colleagues! My name is Aaron Shaw. I graduated in 2015 from the University of Toledo Medical Center PA School. I have been practicing Neurosurgery the past year in College Station, Texas. Over the past two years I have been writing a book for: Students going into PA school, Current PA students, MD Students, DO Students and NP Students. On February 15th, 2017 my book was published and it is on Amazon for sale! Honestly I wish I had a book like this before and during PA school as life would have been much easier. I used this book and purchased a few practice tests from the NCCPA before taking the PANCE and passing it with flying colors the first time! It is my hope that you will check out my new book and hopefully make your study sessions much higher yield! Below is the Amazon website for my book! All the best to all those applying to PA school and for those studying for the PANCE. https://www.amazon.com/Medical-Rotations-Time-Succeed-Training/dp/0692836616/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487803712&sr=8-1&keywords=medical+rotations Thanks, Aaron Shaw, MSBS PA-C

  14. Wanted to reach out and see if I caught any students (or friends of students) at PCOM and see what they knew about the clinical rotations. I was accepted but have had trouble finding much information about the quality of clinical rotations/preceptors/facilities aside from that they can vary widely in location. Thank you in advance for anything you can offer!
