  3. Hi everyone! I'm graduating this May with a B.S. in Nutrition/Dietetics, and heading down to Virginia soon after to be with my significant other. I have been perusing the job boards in the area that I'm moving to get an idea of what medical assistant jobs are posted and what the typical qualifications are. Anyways, I see that in Virginia, as opposed to Pennsylvania where I live now, most medical assistant job postings require the medical assistant certificate. I was kind of hoping that I can get an MA position to finally accumulate HCE. I have my EMT-B certification, but have never ran for the company I'm affiliated with (got it out of state and I am still waiting on my instate certification...). Do you think it's pointless to apply for these MA jobs, or will my current certification be useful? Prior to me receiving my EMT-B certification, I had plans to transfer my certification to VA and work in an ED or for a station; however, seeing as it has taken 5 months already to transfer my certificate from one state to another, I decided to not do that (should have traveled and taken the in state class, huh). My goal was to apply this coming summer, but it looks like I might have to postpone my application for another year. Any advice/insight?
  4. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has gotten interviews or gotten accepted with Survey classes as pre-reqs? I took Survey of Organic chemistry and survey of biochemistry, and I am only looking to apply to schools that don't require them at all, or require either/or (GWU, Northeastern, MCPHS, UF, possibly others). I am planning on taking a gap year or 2 to get patient care hours, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any luck with those classes!
  5. Are messaging apps the future of healthcare communications? We have an app that acts as the "central nervous system" of healthcare communications with a channel (similar to FB messenger) that connects doctors, PAs, patients, labs, etc. on one platform. We've seen amazing results with our users so far in the NYC area. Shoot me an email at a.sheehy@klara.com if you're interested in seeing a demo. PS. I'm not trying to sell anything I promise, it's free. Is HIPAA-complaint (essentially texting) something you would be interested in incorporating in your practice? What are some issues you currently face? Best. Alexis
  6. Hey everybody, I am a 20 year old male Pre-PA student studying Biology currently. I have wanted to be a PA since I first learned about the profession when I was a freshman in high school. I am now a sophomore in college and am working at the local hospital (300+ beds) as a "float" CNA. I have about 900ish hours so far. I also have my EMT license and was blessed with a position in a rural ER just outside of town (15 beds) as an ER Tech, but have not been able to start that position yet due a rigorous and busy semester for me. I plan to start working there early this summer. My GPA is currently hovering around 3.4. I have been on multiple mission trips all over the world. Spain, Honduras, India, and many within America. Only 1 medical mission trip so far that was to India. So first of all, from what I have researched and read, I have pretty decent chances to get into PA school my first attempt if I apply broadly. Is this true? What do some experienced PA's have to say about my experience? So, now for the main reason for this post. After I graduate from PA school and get a couple years experience under my belt (hopefully in emergency or family medicine), I plan on doing international medical missions part time. Does anyone have any experience working as a PA in medical missions? I know it is difficult for PA's to gain credibility around the globe (hopefully it is getting better/easier), but do organizations allow PA's to provide care in other countries? Is it difficult for PA's to gain acceptance into these organizations? Or is it just doctors that are "allowed" to provide care in these third world countries I am hoping to help one day. Also, from what I understand, there are some PA programs that give preference to those students who show and really believe that they want to work in rural medicine. Would I be a good applicant for these schools? Also, are there any schools that have any inclination or experience with sending students or graduates on Medical Missions? I have read some threads on here about this subject, but I just want to know more about it and see what else people have to say about it because I know I can't be the only Pre-PA or even professional PA wondering about this. I know there were a lot of questions in this one thread, but don't think you have to answer all of them. I will be happy with any amount of feedback, whether good or bad. Thanks in advance for your input! I really do appreciate it.

  8. Hey, fellow students! I would love to hear some advice on the padded medical bag to carry supplies! Mostly needed for my clin. med class (things to put in include BP cuff, stethoscope, oto/opthalmoscope, hammers for reflexes, + a whole bunch of other things). Would love to see what worked for you! Links if possible. :) Thank you!
  9. Since my PA program did not offer a Masters, I was thinking of getting an MPAS since I graduated,but that has changed. Now, for the past year I've been part of the core team involved in implementing EHR at the community health center I work for and I am also a current super user. This has really opened my interest in this field. Now I've been looking at Masters in Health Informatics programs. The school that caught my eye is University of Illinois in Chicago that offers an MPH in Public Health Informatics. Is anyone involved in this field? Your opinions? Thoughts? MHI vs MPH-PHI?
  10. Hi everyone :) My name is Rosemary Ajnassian. I am currently in community college and I transferring this fall as a Sociology major to CSUN. Currently I am also taking the classes required to apply to PA programs and I am shadowing two PA's in different fields. I am interested in applying to Western University. I was wondering if having a Bachelors degree is Sociology is looked down upon when I will be applying for my medical program since it has nothing to do with the medical field? does it make a difference that I'm going to a Cal State rather than UCLA or USC? and does it look better to work for a PA or does it make no difference if you are only shadowing? Thank you for your responses :)
