  1. I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week). How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week? My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
  2. Literally, as it says, everything. From study tips to general information, lists of courses, lists of books to study from, lists of test/question bank resources (free and paid), phone applications and web applications (including other helpful blogs). I've compiled a list of it all. Hopefully this will get you through the PANCE and through every PANRE you'll ever take. Good luck fellow PA students and PA-C's! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/04/everything-you-need-to-know-about.html
  3. Just saw this on indeed. Anyone work with sea mercy before? Physician Assistants - Remote islands of Fiji Sea Mercy - Houston, TX 77004 Temporary The South Pacific is calling! Will you answer? An incredible and rewarding opportunity is waiting for you in the South Pacific. If you've desired to visit the beautiful islands of the South Pacific, but prefer purposeful adventure sailing to remote islands over luxury hotels, then take a moment to explore the Volunteer Opportunities Available for health care professionals through Sea Mercy (www.seamercy.org). Sea Mercy is a 501©3 non-profit organization providing Free Floating Health Care Clinics (FHCC) for our island nation partners in the South Pacific. Currently Scheduling for the following locations: Kingdom of Tonga - 176 remote islands (over 50 are permanently inhabited). Republic of Fiji - 300 remote islands (over 100 are permanently inhabited). Volunteer assignment duration: 2 weeks minimum (or longer if you are able). Compensation: Your food, a berth on the Sea Mercy sailing catamaran, new friendships, the joy of helping those in need, and memories that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Travel pickup and departure coordinated by Sea Mercy. This assignment should be viewed as the most incredible "working vacation" you have ever experienced. Available Opportunities for: Doctors, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Dentists, Dental Assistants, Ophthalmologists, Pharmacists and other Health Care specialties (spouses and family can join you). Available Times: 12 day rotations from April thru October (currently only accepting applications for 2014 volunteer rotations). Why Sea Mercy? Sea Mercy provides the much needed health care services (medical, dental and eye care) to citizens living in the remote locations of our island nation partners in the South Pacific. With no roads, power lines, or traditional phone systems to connect the smaller, less populated remote islands to the same health care services offered on the larger islands, we bring the health clinic and health staff to them via the Sea Mercy Floating Health Care Clinic (FHCC). Most of the patients you will be serving do not have even the most basic of health care services. Working on a Floating Health Care Clinic Working closely with the health ministries of our island nation partners, our FHCC's are modified sailing catamarans that carry our health care volunteers and the necessary supplies to these remote islands in order to deliver the care, medicines and services needed. The FHCC focuses on fulfilling the following health care needs: Preventive - Providing immunizations, examinations, and evaluations. Curative - Providing treatments, minor surgeries, and limited pharmaceutical care. Educational - Teaching health education and training of local citizens. Working with local government health staff and interns, we can help teach and train local islanders on better health practices and there by reduce health care needs. Rehabilitative - Helping islanders return to a productive life through corrective treatment of physical ailments, impairments, dental or eye care needs.
  4. Hello all, I just wanted some help as what kind of question would be helpful to ask this EM PA that I will be shadowing. I don't want a repeat of the last time I've shadowed, which was a disaster because I did not know what to ask or what to do all day.... So please help me out if you have shadowed before. Thanks!
  5. I had questions regarding how schools look at applicants having a masters degree.......I will be graduating in the fall with my masters degree in public administration with an emphasis in public health and I wanted to work a couple of years on the administrative side of the medical field before applying to pa school. I currently have a 4.0 GPA, but my undergrad GPA is what worries me. I will be taking my the required anatomy classes in the fall at a community college and with the addition of these classes, my undergrad GPA will barely meet the 3.0 min cutoff. Any suggestions on what I should do or are there programs that take into consideration non-biology master degrees. I have tons of volunteer hrs so I am not worried about this area, just the low undergrad gpa.
  6. Alright I am curious and want to know if anyone on here have gotten into any physician assistant program with a C in general chemistry. I made a C+ in my general chemistry I and a C in gen chem II. My gpa is at a 3.3-3.4 right now and I am not sure if I should take the time to retake it again. Any thought, comments, suggestions will be helpful. I have an B in anatomy, A in physiology, and I cam currently planning on taking Bio 1, 2, and O.chem.
