  1. Hi All! I am a graduate student in public health and have worked with providers to inform patient care plans as well as screen patients for adverse childhood experiences, resiliency, quality of life, etc... I have not been an EMT, CNA, Aid, or other roles that are usually seen with direct patient care experience for PA schools. I have already submitted my application, but after attending an information session I am nervous that schools will not count my public health hours as patient care (I made the mistake of listing them as health care experience and not patient care experience). Does anyone have any thoughts on this process? I have already reached out to one school directly and added the experiences as patient care experience in CASPA (it lets you do this even after submission, but I do not know what happens next). I do have a lot of healthcare experience and research experience. Have anyone else added experiences after they submitted? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to private message if that is better for you. Thanks so much! I really appreciate any support with this!
  2. 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. PA-S and PA-C get to fraternize and network with each other as well as tap into resources such as job recruiters, financial advisors, and transition to practice information. There are always lots of giveaways such as medical equipment, PANCE/PANRE prep, discounts on scrub companies, and more. This event is open to any and everyone no matter the race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. If you cannot attend this event, give them a follow on IG @thepa.c or FB 'Physician Assistants of Color' so you can get notified of when the next event/location will be.
  3. Hello Everyone, My name is Olivia and I am currently a senior at USF. I am looking for shadowing opportunities to be able to start accruing my 2000 hours that I would need to accomplish by the time I graduate in order to be accepted into a PA program in 2021. If anyone has or know any opportunities that I may be able to apply to..I would greatly appreciate the referral. I can be contacted though this forum. Thank you Olivia N.
  4. Hi Everyone, I am applying to PA schools this year. Here are some statistics about me 3.0-3.1 Science GPA 3.5 Cumulative GPA About 700 Volunteer Hours 60 Shadowing hours of PA (3 different specialities) 12 Hours of Shadowing a NP 2,500 Direct Patient Care Experience as a CNA 1st generation student (first to go to college) Honors student, along with being a peer mentor. How many schools do you think I should apply to? Sadly, my science GPA is low because I received a C+ in genetics, and a D in ochem, now retaking Ochem and more than likely will receive anything in the C Range. All my other pre-req's are all A's and Maybe 1 B or 2. Attended Pre-PA conference. Have not taken the GRE yet, but severely worried. Input? If you have been participating in cycles, please include some of your stats and the outcomes. THANKS EVERYONE.
  5. After 2 semesters in my program, I (and many of my peers) fear how much of this information I am forgetting after each test. Teachers and faculty keep telling us to "trust the process". So I wrote a short blog post on what exactly that "process" is and what information is retained as you progress through didactic year. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts below. Hope you find this post helpful! 2 Semesters Down! What Stays and What Goes?
