  1. What’s In A Spoonful? Robert M. Blumm, MA, PA-C Emeritus, DFAAPA Being a grandfather or grandmother is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. While reliving the early stages of life with our grandchildren we can enjoy their movies and get a second chance at some which we may have missed. I was recently watching Mary Poppins with my grandkids and found it delightful and uplifting. For days, I was rehashing that famous song in my head, “just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” As a clinician, I paused with some concern as I had to ask myself: What, act
  2. Hello all! My name is Kim and I am a demonstrated pre-PA coach and a current PA-S with a high success rate of client admission. I am currently available to take on new clients.

  4. Hello Everyone, Is anyone aware of any virtual shadowing opportunities through zoom or any other video platform during this COVID-19 Pandemic?
  5. Is anyone on here (pre-PA, PA-S, or PA-C) a business major / have a business degree? Just out of curiosity, why did you leave the corporate world?
  6. Hi everyone, I am hoping that someone will be able to point me in the direction of some hospitals or private practices that have preceptors who are willing to take PA students in the scottsdale, mesa, Glendale, chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Phoenix area of Arizona. I am currently a first year PA student at Hofstra university in New York and we are getting ready for rotations this year. For my program, we are allowed to do two rotations out of state so I hoping to go to Arizona. However, we are responsible for finding the preceptor and giving the information to Hofstra. I will be staying
  7. There is an awesome organization called ThePAC (Physician Assistants of Color) that holds diversity events in multiple cities across the U.S. The next one will be in Detroit, Michigan on September 28, 2019. The event is a great opportunity for all three levels of the profession! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thepac-takes-detroit-tickets-70091765357 Pre-PAs get to talk directly to program directors from the local/surrounding region (this event will have 7), and get specific advice about their application profile from programs directly as well as experienced PA students and PA-Cs.

  9. Hello! I feel blessed to be coming to you guys with such a problem, but it's been weighing on me and need advice from current PA-S's and PA-C's. I have been accepted to two schools: School A which is 20 minutes away from my current living space and School B which is closer to my parents, but still about an hour away. Schools A and B seem pretty comparable in terms of curriculum, program length (A: 27 mo versus B: 25 mo), PANCE pass rates (A: 97 versus B: 99), tuition (a difference of 3K), and employment rates after graduation. The main differences that I see are that school B is associate
  10. From the perspective of a PA-S who is on the cusp of completing the journey through the bowels of hell known as "Didactic Year" and going into the Clinical Phase, I've heard a lot of pros and cons on CAQ's. Basically, I started this topic with the motivation to find out if there are any major differences in benefits other than just sharpening your knowledge in a particular area, such as pay increases, responsibility/ duty increases, increase in the amount of procedures you can perform, hospital/ practice privileges, job availability, etc. Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  11. I usually print out the PowerPoints as an outline and take notes on the sides and then make flash cards for the microbes but I feel like I end up missing information! Not to mention that you can only put so much onto a flash card for a microbe! Help!! What study tips did you use for your microbiology course?! Please and thank you!! Melanie
  12. Hey everyone. Just thought I would start a thread to open some communication and networking for people accepted to the Class of 2017! I'm really excited for the program to start and can't wait to meet everyone.
  13. Hey Guys, Check this out on YouTube! These are the first of a new series of tutorials for prospective PA students, especially those who want to know how to work CASPA. I wish this was out there when I was applying!
  14. I am starting PA school in June, and am currently taking general biology 1 (ending in May) and working part time. (This course isn't a prereq I'm required to complete). However, if I dropped it, I would get a "W". I have heard different opinions on what to do before school starts (i.e. relax, family, friends, vacation, leisure reading, brush up on your A&P, etc.) It has been 5+ years since I've taken anatomy, physiology, and micro. I'm concerned whether or not I should spend the rest of my time before school reviewing that material since I'm kind of rusty...and DROP my biology course?
  15. Hello everyone! I am moving to Pennsylvania for PA school next May and I am thinking a reliable car will be a must for PA school since I will be alone 3000 miles away from home. Do you have any suggestions on what would be a good car to buy and drive safely for clinical rotations and such? Thank you!
