  5. Hello, I've been working on my personal statement but having trouble with the structure. So far I've written why I want to be PA but wondering how to add my experience as a scribe into it? I first worked as an ER scribe to get exposure to a doctor. I then switched to scribe for a doctor at family clinic where I met a physician assistant who inspired me to become a PA. Where should I write about how my experience as a scribe will make me a good PA? Here's what I have so far: “Go be a doctor” was a constant thing I heard growing up in a Filipino household. My immigrant parents had thei
  6. Hi everyone. I am about to apply to PA school for the second time. I feel that I am a better candidate this time since I have retaken certain classes and acquired WAY more PCE hours than I had the first go around. However, I am struggling with this personal statement. The first time I wrote about my youngest brother. As a young child he was very sick and referred out to different hospitals/specialties which made a huge impact on myself. There were many great doctors and some awful ones (rude and dismissive) which helped shape the perception of what kind of doctor/medical provider I wanted to b

  9. Hi everyone, I'm looking for someone to help me with my personal statement. I have something of a rough draft written. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
  10. I just finished my first draft of my personal statement. I plan to edit it and rewrite it more, but I was unsure where to start. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks! As I sat in the backseat of my car playing games like every other five year old; I noticed something in the corner of my eye. My little brother began to stare off into the distance and his arms along with his body began to jerk. He was having a seizure. I had watched it happen before, but my parents had always been there to comfort him. I did the only thing that I thought I could do and held his hand. He was always confu
  11. “Stacie, harvest the graft,” remarked Dr. Smith to the assisting physician assistant. “Don’t make it too thick. The edges need to be as smooth as possible.” Stacie carefully and confidently harvested the ACL graft. She worked with great precision as she molded it with a small pair of scissors. As she cut, Stacie consulted with Dr. Smith to make sure the size and shape of the graft were correct. What I observed in the OR fascinated me. Stacie, an integral part of the surgical team, possessed much more responsibility for the patient than I would ever be given as an athletic trainer. While she
  12. Driving around Mexico, the smell of rotting garbage permeating the bus, I glimpsed images of small children in rags and dogs lying on the side of the road. I was only fourteen, and along with my church we were on a mission to build a house in the slums of Mexico. Every day we labored alongside the family and the neighbors, and every day my eyes were open to the perseverance and dedication of these people. Without healthcare, sanitation, and the luxuries of America, these people should have been desolate with abandon. Yet they were the most giving individuals I have ever met. Every member of t
  13. I considered a residency. But, then I had the opportunity to speak with HR departments in 3 different hospitals as to the benefits. Basically there's a pay scale for PA's. With no experience you start at the bottom of the scale. With a lot of experience or a residency under your belt, you start higher up on the scale. Regardless, the scale is only so large and therefore with a residency you hit the max cap quicker. Benefits??? You hit the cap in 2 years instead of 3 years. I'm not going to deny the fantastic, dedicated, individual experience one would receive in a residency, but if your goal
