  1. Hey guys, wanted to start a thread with the hopes that some current UF students (1st or 2nd year) could provide some insight on why they chose the program over others, what they're enjoying most about the program, favorite things the program has to offer, the kind of support you're provided with, etc (things of that nature) I would really appreciate it as I'm currently deciding which programs could fit best with me in this upcoming cycle! Thanks, hope to hear from some gators!!
  2. Since social media is such a big part of the newer generations day to day life, I wanted to start a thread for helpful Instagram accounts to follow for our journey to becoming a PA!

  3. Hello, In my pre-pa club a member asked a question about surgery for PA’s. The question was “Is it true that in order to assist in surgery you need to do an extra year of schooling after your PA program? Do this require you to pay more for school? Is this included in your PA schooling years or would you need to reapply for that surgical year?” I thought it was an excellent set of questions, which I would like more answers for.
  4. Hi Everyone, I am so so grateful that I finally got in to my first choice PA school, but am not feeling very torn about my decision to attend. I just had my first child (found out I was pregnant right after applying) who will be three months old at program start. I have support from my husband and family, but I am so nervous about the experience negatively affecting my marriage and my mental health. Will I be able to manage studying and spending some time with my baby and husband? I really just want to start school already, but I'm starting to second guess myself that maybe I should defer
  5. Hi everyone, I am having a bit of a dilemma! I am currently a student at a small community college in Maine. I started in 2015 and got my Associate in Applied Science in Medical Assisting a year ago this past May. I became certified through the AAMA and started working right away. I worked as a float in rheumatology, neurology, family practice, and OMT specialty. All very beneficial to gaining the knowledge I now have. I initially got my MA degree so I could start taking classes towards my bachelors degree and I would also have a job that would get my patient contact hours that I needed t

  14. Suppose this is for pre PA students as well as current PA students. Have y'all had to struggle with choosing between multiple acceptances? How did you choose? What were the things that you weighed the most heavily and are you pleased with your choice now? I know that once you pass the PANCE everyone is a PA but I am curious if there is a perceived difference between the quality of PA's based on their schools by future employers. My situation is that I currently have two acceptances, both start at the same time, both cost relatively the same and both are Provisionally Accredited. Sc

  16. I'm a first year student at community college, where I plan to be for 2 years. Hopefully, I can transfer after that majoring in Psychology. As for my experience, I will earn some hours at a hospice this semester. I'll set up my classes for spring semester in a way that I can take an EMT class at an ROP too. While, I do this, I'll be working as a caregiver for a few days a week (maybe not even necessary). After my EMT certification, I find a job for that and continue working as I am getting my degree. I'll also apply for a health scholar summer program, where I'll be volunteering at a hospital
