  1. Hello. To begin, I apologize if this question has been asked before, but I could not find the information I needed for my situation. Google results articles are incredibly vague so hopefully speaking to people will be better for me! I am an undergraduate pre-PA student. I am interested in going through the military for PA school. I do not have any military involvement at this point in time. Do they train people with a bachelor's degree, is it paid for, how many years of service will I be committed to? The little information I could find online leads me to believe they only train people wh
  2. I will be attending bootcamp for the Navy in October 2018. I have a bachelors degree in sports medicine and will be going in as an E-3 for HM. I plan on attending C school for surgical technician so I can gain more experience before applying to PA school. I would like to know what is the minimum amount of time I am most likely to serve before I can be promoted to an E-5 and apply to IPAP or a civilian PA program. And does anyone have any tips on how I can expedite my journey to becoming a PA (perhaps, should I choose a different C-school)? Any info helps. Thanks!
  3. Hi all! I'm about to enlist in the National Guard in order to proceed to IPAP next fall. I'm currently an undergrad with one semester of school left and have fulfilled all requirements except 2 chemistry credits and shadowing hours and I just have a few questions. I've been told that PAs in the guard, after completing school, only have to drill 4 times a year, does anyone know if this is true? I'm also curious if anyone knows if, during the program, students stay on base or if they are paid BAH and if my significant other would be able to move with me? In addition, I currently on
  4. I am currently enlisted and I am taking a few prerequisites so I can apply for IPAP in 2018. I was curious what happens to you if you don't make it through the entire program. For example, if you fail out? What does the military do with you then? -Sean
  5. Hello! So I am 22 years old and I am just starting my education towards an eventual career as a Physician's Assistant. My husband will be getting out of the military (marines) in October of next year, so I have been looking more into the military, myself, as an option to aid in my pursuance of said career. However, I am not sure if it is a viable option as of yet. I have just been recently certified to work as an EMT-B in the state of North Carolina and I am currently working on my paramedic. I have some college credits, but I do not have my bachelors degree. So my question is: Is
  6. I am a GVSU student and will be done with my BS in Health Science with a focus on preventativie care and a minor in psychology in about a year! I'm hopping to graduate with a 3.5 ish (I had a 3.6 for 90+ credits and my GPA dropped to 0 when transferred) I'm SUPER worried about getting into GVSU's PA Program and am looking into joining the Navy with the hopes of getting into IPAP I will have all my pre reqs done for IPAP most likely even before I join the Navy? I'm 24 year old, female, with a husband and child and am ok with getting deployed and/or moving around! I'm also an NREMT-B - Quest
  7. Hello, I am looking to find out some more information on what IPAP was actually like for those whom recently have gone through it. I am putting my packet in this cycle and haven't been able to find very much information on how the program is ran itself. I am currently an SMP Cadet with 3 years as 11b for the National Guard and am trying to weigh a civilian school vs. IPAP Basically, what I am looking for is: What a typical day at IPAP was like? Where did you get to do your clinical rotations? Do you choose where to do clinical? Is there a lot of power point learning or is it
  8. My PA program takes three years... http://www.capradio.org/articles/2014/07/28/uc-davis-is-trailblazer-in-three-year-medical-school-model/ A handful of UC Davis students are trailblazers in a new medical school model that has won the approval of Californian Governor Jerry Brown. Brown signed legislation that will allow doctors to practice with three years of medical school instead of four. It’s Ngabo Nzigira’s sixth week of medical school, and he’s already interacting with patients. “So we have the norco, you still taking that?" he asks. Nzigira is being trained by a doctor at Kai
  9. I have just completed my second quarter of my program and things are progressing ok. As I go through my program, I can't help but sense a disconnect between what I'm thought and what I actually see by healthcare providers in the real world. I feel as if we are taught in an "ideal" manner and not how things are truly done. Is this correct or have I just been observing others PAs that abbreviate things? For example, in listening to the chest for respiratory or heart sounds, we are taught to check multiple areas. It is taught as if this is how you perform this portion of the exam for even ge
  10. I am posting this in hopes that someone will have insight on what types of Individual Assignments or deployments female PA's do in the Navy. I know they cannot serve with Marines, but are there other limitations? I am also under the understanding, from posts in this forum, that there are approx. less than 200 PA's in the Navy and that most are taking over MD/DO GMO's. I am AD Navy (not a HM) working on pre-reqs to apply to IPAP. Any information would be appreciated. God bless and thank you to all my fellow present and prior service members.
  11. I am hoping to find a provider to shadow in South Carolina or southern North Carolina areas. Here is a little bit about my background... I'm a 24 year old Air Force medical technician. I've worked in primary care on base for 2 years in an LPN-type role, and I have recently started working in ambulance operations on base as an EMT-B. In the time that I have been stationed here I have completed the pre-PA coursework (for IPAP at least) and a BS in Liberal Arts. I am also enrolling in USC this Fall to pursue a second BS in Biology in order to delve a little deeper into the sciences. I plan on
  12. Was wondering if anyone had any advice for a new USAF PA student about to graduate. I know the first year will be very challenging so i am trying to gather advice on things that may help as far as references that are MUST HAVEs that saved you all or any offered advice to make the transition smoother. :-) Thank you!!
