  6. I'm looking to shadow a PA working in primary care, urgent care, or emergency medicine in the greater Seattle area. I have worked directly with PA's for many years, but it has been a long time since I have worked in primary/urgent care, & I no longer have PA contacts there that I can get a hold of.

While in practice I worked with PAs, and found them to be Far superior to others. My locations are Boston a
  9. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and so thankful to have found it in this very confusing time. I have been seriously considering PA school, but I am trying to determine what would be the best route for me. I have a BA in psychology, so I would have to go back to school to get my science prerequisites.

My second dilemma at this time is the pat

  11. Overall, I'm a bit older, mature enough, and smart-ish enough (I personally think? 3.7something GPA or something) to get into PA school. Lots of volunteer experience to show commitment to the community. 2000+ hours of PCE/HCE as a CNA. Thing is, I'lI have little to no PA shadowing experience when I want to apply to schools mid July. Obviously, I mentioned in my PS that I will continue to work as a ICU CNA and gather more shadowing experience as the year progresses, but could having barely any shadowing experience still make one a competitive applicant?? Because all the key aspects I mention a

  15. Hi everyone! I am an MBA student in Pittsburgh, PA. I am working on my thesis in the area of health care management, attempting to solve a recruiting and retention problem I observed in local health care companies. (I am not a recruiter!) My research pointed me in this direction- to individuals who want to be PAs- as the solution to my problem. I believe my solution would simultaneously solve what I have come to learn is a real challenge for pre-PAs, and that is the difficulty obtaining patient care hours and PA shadowing hours. Is anyone reading this in the Pittsburgh area, so that
