  1. Hi! I was recently accepted into a program that I didn't think I would be too fond of, but I ended up falling in love with the program! I am interviewing at my original top choice on the 13th, and I have been having a hard time deciding what school I would choose if I were to get in to this other program as well. I would love to hear what current students think. School A (the one I have already been accepted to) is a 1 hour commute, ( I can't afford to move or get an apartment, I am lucky enough to live with my boyfriend who pays the mortgage). This is the biggest downside to this school. I don't know how commuting an hour both ways, 5 days a week, will work with the course load. School B is a 30 minute commute. School A is also about $15,000 more expensive. The reason I justify price is that this program is 28 months, which is 4 months longer than school B (where I am interviewing on the 13th). I love that the clinical rotations are 5 weeks, instead of 4 at school B. There are also 2 elective clinical sites and school A, as opposed to only 1 at school B. They are both very new programs so they're pretty comparable when it comes to everything else that I've looked into! So my questions are: 1. If you have a long commute to your PA program, do you regret it/how do you like it? 2. Will 1 additional week in each clinical site and 1 additional elective make a difference/ is it worth the $15,000 additional? 3. Will I get to the 24 month point at school A and wish that I went to school B so that I could be finished already? Thank you so much for any input you all can provide!!

  3. Hi Everyone! I hope you are all safe and sound. My name is Leshan Kereto a PA student from Kenya and a board member to the International Federation of Physicians Assistants and Clinician/comparable(IFPACS). This is a student society that is working hard to unite Physician Assistants students globally. So far we have been able to network with more than 36 countries. We seek to provide a forum for PA students to connect and share ideas alongside coming up with solutions to solve problems facing PA students from different countries. So far we are reaching out to try and connect to students from countries that include the following; Israel, Australia, India,China, Nepal, Netherlands, Russia, China, Nigeria, Bangladesh among several others. I would like to request if anyone in this forum has any contacts to student leaders or ordinary PA students from the above countries( or any other) to kindly share with me so that we can be able to tell them more about IFPACS and possibly have them join us. You can read more about IFPACS through www.ifpacs.org Thank you so much. Kind Regards Leshan Kereto Board Member-International Federation of Physicians Assistants and Clinician/Comparable Students(IFPACS) President-Clinical Medicine Students Association-Kenya.

  4. Hello! I was wondering if anyone accepted into this program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot! -Maylily7 P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to take a gap year and work on that. I also hope to retake the GRE to improve my score as well. Again, thanks so much!
  5. Hey everyone, I'm in the process of starting my essays for this year's NHSC scholarship and was wondering if anyone had advice on how they approached the essays. My specific questions are highlighted below. 1) How specific were you in outlining your future career plans for the essay on the NHSC mission? Did you list HPSA sites and/or non-profit organizations you were interested in affiliating with? 2) How did you approach the essay regarding your commitment to working in primary care? Did you take a narrative approach regarding life events or circumstances that led you to pursue a career in primary care, a philosophical approach rationalizing the importance of primary care, a combination of the two, or something altogether different? Thanks in advance for any help!
  6. I hope it's OK to post this here. If not, please feel free to delete. Over at Clinician1 we recently published a new, free white paper written by C1 Editorial Board Member, Jordan Garner-Roberts, PA-C. Jordan shares some great information and advice for new PAs. We hope students and young PAs will find it valuable. You can check it out at the link below. Please share any feedback in the comments. We're always looking for new ideas for content that students will find valuable. https://clinician1.com/read/Articles/The-Hardest-You-Have-Ever-Worked-for-a-C-Pearls-for-the-Newly-Minted-PA-C
