In my major, if you have a certain concentration, a 400 hour internship is required at an approved site. This past semester, I completed my internship and I'm wondering if it can be counted as "hands on healthcare experience." I did my internship in inpatient & outpatient rehab and cardiac rehab. List of things I did: Checked blood pressures Put on heart monitors Helped patients do their exercises In inpatient sometimes a therapist would tell me to go to a patients room and do specific exercises for 20 minutes or so then ask them what their pain level was. In out patient I would also go through exercises with a patient if a therapist was busy Can I count this as HCE? My only worry is that this internship was technically a class I had to take and I got 6 hours of credit for it. I don't know how schools feel about that.
At the NYSSPA annual conference there will be a workshop held for Pre-PA students, hosted by many of the faculty members and program directors from the schools in the area. It's a great way to get advice from the insiders on what you can do to get into their programs. https://scontent-lga1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11880598_834463486674748_6087743120751407410_n.jpg?oh=9f7acd9962f93beae9d0cfbb8040e627&oe=566CC01B
http://pashadowonline.com/ to hook up a shadowing opportunity in your general area. Personally never used it but i've heard good things. Another thing to consider is volunteering in a local hospital that utilizes PAs. Try and get on a specific unit where there will be heavy PA foot traffic(ER/ICU) Good old fashioned face to face networking goes a long way.
