I am selling the following books as a bundle package- The were many of the texts used at Western University of Health Science during my didactic year (2015). $450 approx value per a cumulative total taken from the lower end prices on Amazon. I’m selling all of them for $400. Some have some highlights and wear. My assumption is that a good number of these books will still be used as the professors don’t change text often and the difference between editions is minor. Even so, if a book or two gets dropped from the syllabus its still a great deal. You can contact me via my email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange to meet up so you can approve the books condition and talk selling price in southern california. I do not ship. The list… Laboratory Tests and Diagnostic Procedures- Chernecky, Berger (Adult Medicine I and II) Certification and Recertification Examinations For Physician Assistants- O’Connell (Adult Med I and II study guide and board prep!)

Hey guys, so it may be a bit premature to think about this. But first: I am currently a PA student, almost done with my didactic year (3 more months to go!). I entered the PA program straight from undergrad, currently 22 yo. The only HCE I had prior to beginning the program was working as a lab assistant for a year while finishing up undergraduate studies. I also had some rotation experience to different labs as a student pursuing medical laboratory technologist degree. And roughly 400 hours of volunteering experience. I am still currently working as a lab assistant in a big metropolitan hospital in hopes that the current connection I have can help me in the future in job prospectives or even the residency their ER offers. I've passed all my classes so far and hope to continue to do so, current grades slightly above 3.5. Recently, I realized after talking with the faculty that in terms of finding a job or even a residency (which I am currently leaning towards), it would be difficult for someone who has a lack of HCE prior to entering the PA program (I don't really count the lab assistant as good HCE due to lack of patient exposure). I was quite elated and happy that I got accepted with minimal HCE, but now I just realized that it may affect me in the future. Of course I may be a bit pessimistic about all of this, and heck things might change drastically once I enter clinical year. I just wanted to get some insight from differnent individuals who may have had the same concerns as I did prior to clinicals or graduating. One of the main reasons why I'm leaning towards an ER residency is due to my lack of HCE plus it's a great additional teaching experience for anyone trying to go the ER route. What do you guys think are the chances of actually attaining a residency or even a job?
