  1. Hello! I hope someone can help!! I am so confused in regards to if a medical assistant is considered PCE or HCE for CASPA. I've been an MA for 3 years, this past year I've been working in an Urgent Care. However, the two years prior is what I'm worried about. I do feel it's considered PCE based on what I did/level of responsibility, but the way CASPA describes it is freaking me out a bit. This might be a long post but I hope even just 1 person can give me some insight!! CASPA states: "Patient Care Experience Experiences in which you are directly responsible for a p
  2. 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
  3. This may be an ultimately personal decision but I wanted some feedback. Sorry if it’s long. Currently my mother is undergoing aggressive chemo. She has her “on” week and then two weeks “off”. She has a few months left of her treatment and I currently live with her so Im taking her to appointments and helping her with what she needs. Although she is younger and doesn’t need a ton of care. She was diagnosed just months ago and it has obviously been a whirlwind with this and COVID. I previously was planning to be working full time by now and get PCE hours to apply next application
  4. 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.
  5. I feel like I'm seeing more and more current college students and recent grads on here, knowing that they want to pursue PA right out of the gate (which is awesome!) I'm curious what the breakdown is of pre-PA folks here who are pursuing a career pivot to PA vs those who are pursuing PA as their first career (or whose PCE/HCE job was chosen specifically to meet PA school requirements)? (I've been a certified athletic trainer for 7 years and have had my sights set on PA for about 4 years -- had to spruce up the ol' GPA prior to applying -- this year is my first application cycle! I'
  6. Hello, I am currently as sophomore at my university, and I was wondering when would be the best time to start working 1000-2000 HCE or PCE experience? I plan to appy when I complete my undergrad. I am looking into working as a scribe or a CNA. Thank you.
  7. 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
  8. To give some background, I completed my undergrad in 2013. I earned a BA with a double major in Biology and Psych. I had aspirations of medical school or a career in the psych field. I found out about the PA profession my last year of college around 2013 and had it in mind since then. Only in the last year or so did I make the decision that this is what I want to do and made myself more aware of requirements of getting into a PA program and what this career path is all about. I just reached the two year mark at my job as an intake specialist for addiction recovery. It is a call center positio
