  1. Hello everyone! I am a newly engaged applicant who's been accepted to an inaugural program starting in January (fingers crossed nothing falls through) and am looking for advice from any PA-S or PA-C on whether to plan a wedding during didactic year to get married during clinicals or plan during clinicals and get married post graduation? I come from a cultural family so wedding's tend to be big and I am assuming planning will take at least a year or 6 months prior to the date. For what it's worth my program is set to graduate March 2023 and my fiancé is projecting 2022 to be the best for him, f
  2. I have been reading quite a few of the post grad PA residency/fellowship blogs and am blown away by the sheer amount of material and skills that new grad PAs are able to grasp and perform straight out of a PA residency. This got me thinking. What if the PA profession embraced required post grad PA residencies/fellowships? There are several benefits to doing something like this in my eyes. 1) PAs would hit the ground running--we would be incredibly capable straight out of the gate. 2) PAs would instantly have a major advantage over NPs, even if those NPs have had years of RN experience befor
  3. PAs For Tomorrow AAPA Candidate Endorsement Statement The 2017-18 AAPA voting polls have been open for a few days. Historically, membership participation in AAPA elections tends to be low. PAFT encourages all PAs to participate in the selection of our future national leaders. If you haven’t already cast your vote, take the time to review the candidate selections and thoughtfully consider who you believe is best equipped to further the mission of the PA profession. Recently, the PAFT Board of Directors submitted a series of questions to each candidate. After review of those that su
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a PhD student and for my thesis I'm researching PA professional roles in healthcare delivery. I would love to hear your insights about the profession, why you chose it, what you love most about your work with a brief online questionnaire. It should only take 10 minutes and would *really* help me out! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. My end goal is to promote the PA profession to the public, since there is such an unfortunate lack of knoweldge on PAs and what they do! Thanks for your help :) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FX67PDN Thanks for your help
  5. FUTURE VISION – WHO’s RESPONSIBLE? As President of PAs for Tomorrow, I’ve been in a great ideological flux. I see a dramatic dichotomy for the PA profession. On one hand, Forbes, USA Today and the New York Times often have the PA profession as one of the top 5 or 10 most promising fields. On the other hand, there continue to be “issues” that loom over the profession. Name change, antiquated state laws, reimbursement inequity, and competition for jobs all intermingle with greater clinical demands such as volume production, meaningful use requirements, EMR integration among other administra
  6. This video shows how far we've come ... Where will we be in 20 years? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=GWRdHXbTmrs
  7. I would appreciate some insight on starting PA school at a program starting in January or one that is less expensive but starting in May. The latter program also has a cadaver lab unlike the first. Both last 27 months and are close to hometown. Thank you!!
  8. I am a washington resident and am going to attend a 2 year community college (green river). Im going to take the required pre-requisites courses for the MEDEX program, so here is my plan. After my 2 years of community college i will have an Associates degree. Then transfer to UW to get my Bachelor's but after my 2 years i will also be working as a Nurse to get my 4000 hours of experience completed. Hopefully i will have at least a 3.7 gpa throughout my college courses. Also currently i took some UW in the highschool classes which i paid 300 and something dollars for. The classes i took were EN
