  4. Hi! I have a friend who is currently finishing her undergrad and is interested in the PA profession. Any PAs in the Orlando area willing to have a shadow for a few hours? One specialty of interest for her is interventional radiology. Thank you!
  5. Hello everyone!!!! This is my first time posting on this forum so i'm hoping I'm doing it right. A little bit about my background: I went to the University of Miami (2014) and graduated with a GPA of 3.0 with a bachelors of Microbiology and Immunology and minors in Biology and Chemistry. Then I went on and got my masters at Barry University in Biomedical Sciences and graduated this past May (2016) with a GPA of 3.6 I have a 2 year research experience at the microbiology lab at Miller school of Medicine in Miami, 160 hours of shadowing with different physicians (Urology, Obgyn, Neurosurgery and Anesthesiology) Also, I have accumulated over 120 hours volunteering at Cleveland Clinic florida at the ER working on both health care experience (greeting and bringing patients to the back, restocking the shelves, providing blankets and pillows to patients, serving food and also cleaning the rooms, organizing the charts and more...) as well as direct patient care (taking the patients vitals such as blood pressure, measuring height and weight, oxygen saturation and more...) so basically my ER hours can be used for both sections on the CASPA I have all my letters of recommendations (one from a PA, one from a charged nurse at the ER and one from my director in grad school) but I haven't taken my GRE yet! My problem is that I am not sure this is competitive enough, should I go and get certified as a CNA or even MA or even a scribe? or should I apply right now with what I have so far? is it too late to apply? I'm interested in applying to all schools in Florida but my first choice is Nova in Orlando. I need your opinion please!!
  6. I currently live in Osceola County, which is in Kissimmee, and bordering South Orlando. I would like to shadow a few PAs to see if I would like to dedicate my time for PA school preparation. Messge me back.
  7. Hello, I'm currently in PA school and am compiling a list of questions that patients may be uncomfortable asking their healthcare providers. Just like every clinician, I want my patients to feel secure telling me what they're thinking. So please, think back to time when a patient, a friend, a family member or even you, yourself were hesitant to ask a question. Feel welcome to post questions here or anonymously on my online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QFNYL87 Thank you in advance for your feedback!
  8. I will be starting rotations in Jan. 2013 and am looking for clinical sites in the Orlando, FL area. I am from Orlando but am currently in school in Knoxville, TN. I would like to practice in FL so am trying to set up rotations there. Each rotation must be 6 weeks long. If anyone has any leads, let me know. Thanks!
  9. Hello, I am a pre-professional student at UCF, finishing up science pre-requisites before applying to PA school. (I have my bachelors in business.) I'm looking for a PA or two to shadow in the Orlando or south Florida/PSL area. My areas of interest are rather broad so I am open to all fields at the moment. I'm going through the process of becoming a volunteer at Florida Hospital and have an interview next week, though I'm not sure if I will have any patient care opportunities (depends on what openings they have). Without getting a license as a CNA or Med Assistant, I'm also open to suggestions on gaining clinical experience. Please message me if you have any suggestions. Thank you!
  10. Hello, my name is Stephanie Nanfang and I am three semesters away from applying to PA school. I am looking for someone to let me shadow them four to five hours a week, for 9 to 12 months.

Thank You, Stephanie Nanfang
