  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

  8. 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!
  9. Hello, I'm looking for any leads on clinical rotations in the los angeles area. I am an out of state student trying to set up rotations on my own so that I can be in LA for my clinical year. I am looking for rotations in women's health, internal/family medicine, inpatient medicine, general surgery, and emergency medicine for 2016 (Jan-Nov). Preceptors can be PAs, MDs, NPs, or DOs. If you know of anyone that could help me kindly let me know. Personal message me with any information or questions. Thank you in advance!!!
  10. I am currently preparing for entrance into the PA program. Are all students required to do clinical rotations in the ER/surgery? Or can PAs who want to specialize in family medicine and work in a doctors office avoid doing clinicals in the ER? I ask because I really really really want to become a PA, but I know I couldn't handle the ER or surgery. I'd hate to not be able to pursue this career because of being forced to do rotations in a specialty I do not want to pursue at all!! Do all PA schools make this mandatory? Thanks
  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. Finally, PAs have their very own SERIES of books to study from--perfect for clinical rotations! These books have just the right amount of information. Each topic is presented the way clinicians reach a diagnosis and treatment. Anatomy illustrations, charts, tables, radiographic images, and algorithms make key principles stand out. The first title in the series, Surgery for the Physician Assistant, is available on Amazon in print and on the iBooks store in digital format for the iPad or iPhone. Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Surgery-Physician-Assistant-Roberto-Kusminsky/dp/0991316908/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1412497847&sr=1-1&keywords=surgery+for+the+physician+assistant iBook store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/surgery-for-physician-assistant/id924183750?mt=11
  13. If you are in PA School, on rotations, or studying for the PANCE/PANRE and would like help studying or if you need helpful study material please contact me!

  15. Hi! My name's Kasey and I'm about to start Concordia University Wisconsin's PA Program this May. They are letting me do my rotations back here in California! :) However, I need to find potential preceptors for my school to contact and begin setting up my clinical schedule. Either our program director or clinical director will be flying out to California to meet with my preceptors. My rotations will not be until the latter part of 2014 through the first half of 2015. Does anyone have any suggestions or any advice on how to find PA's or MD's willing to preceptor me in the Southern California and/or Central Coast (San Luis Obispo) area? I would greatly appreciate any help!! Thank you so much! :)
  16. My first clinical rotation is in the ED and I'm looking for decent books for both reference during clinicals and to brush-up on my knowledge prior to starting. Suggestions?
  17. Does anyone know of clinical sites taking students in Wilmington NC or the surrounding area? I am hoping to set up an elective rotation there for next year- thanks!!
