  1. Sage Advice for New Graduates Robert M. Blumm, PA-C Emeritus, DFAAPA Congratulations! Many of you will be graduating from your PA & NP programs in the coming months. You are about to set out on a clinical career journey that could be as long as forty years. A few years ago, my wife and I planned a trip to Italy where we would visit all of the sights of Rome and Florence. Twelve days in Europe was a gift to ourselves - for me after many years of practice and for her, a lifetime of teaching Humanities to high school students. Our journey started s
  2. I'm working bringing my GPA up to a 3.0 from a 2.96. Afterwards, I'm thinking about doing a master's program. I recently ran across a Graduate Certificate in Medical Physiology offered by UF. I just wanted to know if anyone has finished it and what the program was like. If anyone has any suggestions to a short master's programs that would be great too. I'm looking for something that would benefit in the long run, not just any degree. Thanks
  3. Before I begin, yes I am still just a senior in high school, and yes I know that my goals can change. However, this is what I want as of now, and because it's extremely important to prepare for what I want my future to be, even though it may change, I need to make plans. So PLEASE don't advise me on going to med school or doing something else, it's not what I'm asking for. Now, I've been doing my own research, but I would also love different personal perspectives. As of now, I plan to stay within five hours (maybe more if necessary) away from southern-ish New York because I don't hav
  4. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum but was hoping to get your advice on my PA application plan. I graduated from undergraduate in May 2015. I applied for several PA programs to begin Fall 2017, however, was not accepted. I have gathered over 1200 direct care hours, over 500 research hours, over 200 shadowing hours. I believe that the flaws were: 1) my Science GPA being below 3.0 2) applying early 3) GRE I am currently enrolled at Hunter College as a non-degree student and I am taking post-bacc courses individual. I am ineligible for their Post-bacc certification program s
  5. Hello. I had 4 interviews last cycle. I received 3 rejections and 1 alternate list. I am very thankful for being placed on alternate list, because it's not a straight no and I am still being considered. (Staying positive) The program did not mention how many candidates are placed on alternate list. It just says "small group." I will continue to apply for the next application cycle, but I was just wondering if anyone got accepted after placed on alternate list. The program starts in June, and it's already mid-April.
  6. Hey everyone! Thinking a liiiitle far in advance here. I'm currently beginning to apply for colleges and my top two right now are Notre Dame and Stony Brook. I'd love to go to ND because I'm from Long Island and have dreamed of getting away from here. But I've heard that Stony accepts undergrads from them into their PA program more frequently than those from other schools, especially from outside NY. Since I am a native Long Islander, do you think I'd still have that NY res hook and could get into SBU for PA just as easily if I went to ND? Or is my best bet to go to SBU for undergrad and then
  7. 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 hospi
  8. I am confused on the CASPA section regarding listing duties from past work experience/medical experience/volunteer experience/etc. That section, I do believe, allows 40 words which is alot. Is this section supposed to be written in complete sentences or the typical fragmented style usually used on resumes? Anyone that could help!? Thanks!
