  1. Hi all! I'm a second year PA student and have a bit of free time in the evenings for mentor sessions! If any pre-PAs are looking for a mentor to help with application, deciding on PCE, pre-reqs, etc. and would like an experienced PA student to help, I'm your girl! I know how difficult this process is to navigate, and I'd love to lend a helping hand. Message me at packtopac@gmail.com OR schedule with me here: http://www.packtopac.com
  2. Hello! I was accepted to PA school last year and am currently in my didactic year. I felt the application process was very rigorous and I could not have gotten through without my mentors. So I am looking to help someone else who is currently in the application phase. PM me if your interested.
  3. Hello, looking for any shadowing opportunities in any specialty, located in Phoenix, Az 85304. I am willing to commute up to 20 miles. If its a summer shadowing position (May-August) only, that works too!
  4. Hi all! My name is Jessica and I am currently a school psychologist and very interested in pursing a career change to physician assistant. I would love to shadow a PA so that I can learn more about the profession and get to experience the day to day responsibilities. If there are any PAs in Northeast, Pennsylvania (especially the Wilkes-barre/Scranton area) that would be willing to let me shadow, I would be forever grateful! Thank you in advance!
  5. Hi all, I am seeking a shadowing opportunity in or near the central Massachusetts area before I apply to PA programs in the upcoming cycle. A bit about myself - I attended the University of Miami and graduated with a degree in Health Science this past December. I have worked as an EMT and currently work as a medical assistant at a local pediatric practice to experience working with patients. I am hoping to gain firsthand experience with the profession by shadowing a practicing PA-C in any specialty. I have attended virtual shadowing sessions with PAs but feel as though an in-person shadowing opportunity (and mentor if possible) would allow me to get a better grasp on the PA’s role within a healthcare team and insight on the day-to-day of the profession. I am located in Worcester county, but will travel anywhere for an opportunity like this. If you, or someone you know, are willing to open your doors to me so I can observe and learn about the profession, please send me a PM, email me at jackcgingrich@gmail.com, or leave a comment below. Thank you for your time and consideration!
  6. Hi everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep. I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member! Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!
  7. Hi all! So I am shadowing a PA again tomorrow that I shadowed earlier this month. She reached out to me after I sent her a letter at her practice expressing my desire to shadow. She was eager to answer my questions and go into detail explaining each patient case to me. I was wondering what questions would be good to ask her tomorrow. Would it be appropriate to ask her if she would be willing to write a letter of recommendation? To shadow her again? If she would be willing to serve as sort of a mentor to me over email? I don't want to be too forward, but I do eventually need a letter of rec from a PA and it can be hard to find PAs to shadow! Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone! My name is Yanka, I am a rising junior, and I recently decided to pursue a career as a PA-C. I chose this career path because I can study for an additional two years and get out into the real world to practice, I also prefer to study the Medical Model, and the work/life balance is very ideal because I love spending time with my family. I was just wondering if there are any opportunities for online shadowing, or any PA-C’s in Massachusetts or Rhode Island offering opportunities to shadow. Please let me know. Stay safe! Yanka.
  9. Hello, I am a current PA student. If you are a Habesha/Ethiopian/Eritrean student that wants a mentor or you have questions feel free to reach out. negga.yosan@gmail.com.
  10. HI! I am a current student looking to gain clinical experience as a medical scribe but am not sure where to start! I have tried to do my own research but every site I find seems to offer jobs once I am certified ( which I am not) . I want to make sure I take the correct steps and having someone I could come to with questions would be extremely helpful! thanks in advance !

  12. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you all on here that, in addition to this wonderful resource, there are also a bunch of Pre-PA mentors on instagram as well that can help inspire and motivate you! I thought I might start a topic so you can drop your favorites below and others can enjoy them as well! I'll start with my personal account, instagram.com/myPApal, where you can follow my journey through PA school starting next month! Feel free to DM me if you have any questions that you feel might be too sensitive to share on this sort of public forum.
