  1. Can someone explain the difference between a medicine module and organ based curriculum? How are they different if they are different at all? I am deciding between two schools that have these two differing curriculums and want to know the pros and cons of each type of curriculum! Thank you in advance
  2. I recently wrote a blog post describing a typical day for me in PA school. Hope you find it useful and that it gives you an honest understanding of what PA school is like. I did one post for didactic year and one for clinical year. Enjoy! Didactic Year Clinical Year
  3. Hey everyone! I just started our Medicine I class and am curious if anyone has any feedback about using the Flashcards for Current. Feel free to chime in with any other resources you used that were helpful for didactic year or preparing for the PANCE! Thanks in advance :)

  5. Dear PA Student or PA Grad, After personally tutoring PA students matriculating in PA schools for 2 years, I began tutoring graduates who were about to take the PANCE for the first time. 100% of the first five I tutored scored high. After teaching for over 20 years, I have made these subjects relatively simple to learn without memorization! And since 2012, I have helped 57 students pass the PANCE and PANRE. My students were from schools all across the U.S. *Of those 5 first time takers, 100% passed. *Of those who had failed once, 97% passed. *Of those who failed twice, 93% passed
  6. I made a blog post about clinical year and the didactic work that is expected out of us in my program. Please comment below if the experience in your program was different from mine so others can learn what to expect. http://pajourney.com/2016/08/29/how-much-didactic-work-is-there-in-clinical-year/
  7. Hey there, I am a second year PA student and I have a blog PAjourney.com where I post advice for students looking to get into the profession. Recently I wrote a post that I hope will help new PA students survive didactic year. I thought it would also be great if other experienced PA students gave advice in the comments section on what helped them survive. Because lets face it, the one year of didactic learning we do is probably harder than any academic year in any other major/degree/profession in existence. Med students have a long road ahead of them, but no single year of their educa
  8. After 2 semesters in my program, I (and many of my peers) fear how much of this information I am forgetting after each test. Teachers and faculty keep telling us to "trust the process". So I wrote a short blog post on what exactly that "process" is and what information is retained as you progress through didactic year. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts below. Hope you find this post helpful! 2 Semesters Down! What Stays and What Goes?
  9. The teachers in my program keep telling us to "trust the process". So I wrote a little blog post on what I think that process is and on what information you retain from your didactic year. Hope you find this interesting and feel free to comment with thoughts of your own! 2 Semesters Down! What stays and what goes?
  10. I have several books I used in the pre-PA track as wel as during PA school. I need to get rid of these books, and I am open to all reasonable offers. For example, I have bates physical diagnosis, behavioral science in medicine, rapid interpretation of ekgs, human anatomy books, pathophysiology They are in great condition - I really need to free up space and get rid of them. Please post here or message me Thanks
  11. Hello, I'm a current PA student who was 3 months into clinical rotations when I had to leave my school for non-academic reasons. I'm trying to see if there are any current PA students, or practicing PA's who have been in a similar situation and had to transfer programs, or were able to get into another school via advanced placement. Through my own research here are the only schools that I have found so far: Baylor Union College Shenandoah Rutgers Rochester Institute of technology Even with these mentioned here, the consideration for transfer or advanced placement ca
  12. Hello everyone, I just want to encourage all practicing PA's and PA students to email both Robert Alpern, MD (Yale SOM dean): robert.alpern@yale.edu and John McCarty (ARC-PA executive director): johnmccarty@arc-pa.org if you oppose Yale's proposal for an online PA program. I have emailed both and received a prompt response. ARC-PA is meeting before the end of the month and we will know soon if the program was approved. The reasons I oppose the proposal: 1. It will tarnish our reputation as one of the most rigorous programs in the health sciences 2. It will jeopardize clinical site
  13. I am the father of an incoming student, starting at the end of this month. I am uneasy with not knowing the specific reasons that Chatham's PA program in on accreditation probation. A lot of the money that could be sent there is mine. Does anyone have specific details of the reasons for probation? clinical reasons? specifically what? classroom reasons? specifically what?
