  1. Hello! I’m currently a senior biology major working as a medical scribe for a bit over 1 year now. I have accumulated about 1100 hours so far and have a cGPA of 3.63 and a science GPA of 3.36. I also have volunteered at a food bank with about 100 hours during the weekends. As a scribe I chart many aspects of the patient visit including vitals, HPI, physical exam and future plans. I also occasionally assist the provider with small tasks such as cerumen flushing in internal medicine or taking an US in a rheumatology setting. I have been researching PA programs to apply to and focusing on those
  2. I have been hired as a contact tracer/monitor and was wondering if it would count as health care experience. I know it is not direct patient care, but I am wondering if it at least counts toward HCE.
  3. My CASPA application was recently verified 2 weeks ago. However, I am still completing some applications on CASPA and I was wondering how to go about updating my current HCE experience? I have a full-time job, so I already accumulated about 80 hours since my application was verified. Do I need add new HCE experience (with the same description) that is already listed as "till date"? Also, how do you update current experience (if at all)? Do you write the start time from which you started the job or the start date from which you last updated that type of experience from when the application was
  4. Hello everyone! I'm a pre-PA student at UNT applying this upcoming cycle. I am curious of how to split my hours between HCE and PCE. I have a total of 900 hours as a scribe in the ED and would like to put most of it towards PCE, however, I see that a lot of schools require 500 HCE hours and I would like to apply to as many schools as possible! Please let me know what you would recommend! My current application statistics: (I have this semester left which will bring my GPA above a 3.6) Overall GPA: 3.59 Volunteer hours: 150 Leadership experience: President of a Minority Pre
  5. Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum. I graduated with a degree in biology and a gpa of 3.52, and was planning to go to medical school the whole way through, while also thinking a lot about PA school. I was ready to apply to med school while I was finishing college, but decided to take some time away from the academic environment to make sure I really wanted to do med school. After almost a year of soul-searching, researching and deliberation (in addition to the last 4 years), I have finally decided that PA is a more appropriate career path for me. I had a great mcat score (93%) and I h

  8. Hi everyone! I am currently taking some biology and chemistry classes right now at a college and planning to take organic chem over the summer. I am doing great in chemistry class, like A+, however in biology classes, I'm more of a B- or C student. I'm just worried that since my biology grade isn't so well, would that affect me getting into PA school. I heard it is very competitive and everyone getting in has like a 4.0 gpa!! I am also planning to volunteer over the summer at a local hospital so that I can fulfill some HCE hours. What's a good way to keep track of Hours? Plus,
  9. Hi, I am new to this group but very excited to be a part of it! I am at the beginning stages of switching my career track from working in television to becoming a PA (big change I know!) I am going back to school in January to begin taking science pre-reqs as well as starting to apply for MA jobs. Does anyone have a good system in terms of logging HCE Hours? Thank you!
