  1. Hi, I have 3 different opportunities and was wondering which one would look best and count for clinical hours for PA school. There is a position as a volunteer at a hospice, working as a medical scribe and working as a caregiver. Thanks for the advice!
  2. Are you ones of those few PAs that seem to be able to handle it? Death is very difficult to deal with and the amount of grief and anger that comes from having a terminal illness can be insurmountable. What have you done to help yourself in times like these with your own pts and/or their family members?

Wasn't the first time I'd seen such langua
  5. I just got a job as an anesthesia tech but I'm not sure that what I'm doing is very applicable to the PA profession and I'm worried its not preparing me enough. What health care job is best?
