I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders and the internship opportunities I am presented with deal mostly with children with hearing disabilities (obviously) and Autism. I'm pretty sure this is not the medical experience PA schools consider competitive... Any advice on how to obtain true MEDICAL EXPERIENCE? In a hospital? With patients? Would it be wise to pursue an EKG/EEG/CMA/CNA Technician Certification, and work part time? Would that even be possible to obtain concurrently with my undergrad major?
C-MA or EMT: Which is more desirable by PA schools? Which will help me excel more so in the PA Program? What did you do to earn HCE to become a PA? I can't seem to find any specific comparisons between the two, and I'd like to know which is better for preparing me. I'm also planning on getting certified in one of the two before I get my bachelor's degree in health care/allied health, is this a good idea so that I can earn more HCE in that amount of time? I know the time period and amount of HCE are two factors put into consideration, as well (ex: I'm probably less likely to be admitted with 1,000 hours of HCE in 5 years total). I also plan to volunteer, of course! :)Thank you in advance! Additional info and advice is greatly appreciated as well!
