  1. I am finishing up an 8 week session of Medical Terminology and Biochemistry with Doane online this week. I will start another 8 week session in January that will consist of BIOX 355 (Human anatomy) and BIOX 356 (Human Physiology). Has anyone taken these 2 classes at the same time (not to be confused with A&P I or II)? I'm wondering if it will be much more difficult than the current 8 week session with Biochem. The professors are Eggert and McMillin for the next 2 classes. I'm hoping I'm not the only one crazy enough to do both full classes in 8 weeks. Tell me it's doable!
  2. Hello all! I am sure there are already several similar topics already on here, but I am struggling to find them. I am wondering if anyone has compiled a list of schools that do or do not accept online anatomy and physiology courses if taken during quarantine. I have checked the websites of several schools that make no statements on how their prereq requirements have been altered in response to the pandemic. If anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful. Thank you!!
  3. It looks on their website and on the CASPA prerequisites page like you have to take anatomy&physiology I and II...is this true? I took a separate human anatomy class and a physiology class - they weren't combined. I don't want to apply if this will not fulfill the requirement. Also, it says "Two semesters of human anatomy & physiology with laboratory (from a biology, physiology, zoology department, or an allied health program)"...my courses are from my school's kinesiology dept...will this not work? Thanks, I appreciate your feedback.
  4. Hey Everyone, I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death, but I'm looking for some advice. My current stats are: cGPA - 2.96 sGPA - 3.16 Last 50 Credits - 3.84 PCE - 4000+ Hrs My AnP 1 and 2 grades are both B- from undergrad, when I didn't know what I was doing with my life. I'm wondering if I should point my energy towards retaking these two courses for A's or should I pursue a Master's program? Thanks for all your help, really appreciate it.
  5. I have completed my bachelor's degree in Biology, but since I was pre-med back then, I didn't complete the anatomy and physiology course and now have to complete it at a community college. I also have a full time job and was hoping to take anatomy and physiology in a hybrid setting (online lecture with in person lab). Is this a good idea? I've been looking at schools websites and some don't care, some said "considered on an individual basis," and some won't accept it. Am I limiting my chances too much? I want to apply mostly west coast and surrounding states. I also have to take statistics an
  6. I have some concern about my A&P GPA meeting the prerequisite requirement for PA school. As most of you know many PA schools have a minimum GPA requirement of a "B-" or 3.0. In my first term of A&P lab I received a C+, which doesn't meet the minimum requirement. But my overall A&P GPA (3 quarters of lecture and laboratory) does meet the minimum GPA requirement. What will PA schools look at, my individual letter grade or my overall A&P GPA?
  7. Hello, fellow pre-PAs. I have chosen human physiology as my undergrad with a minor in Spanish. What do you think of this major in regards to applying for PA school? Is anyone here pursuing the same degree? My top program choice is the Oregon Health and Science University. My goal is to become an Orthopedic surgery PA. Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
  8. Hello, I am currently a freshmen at a four year university. My university does not offer anatomy and physiology with lab, just anatomy and physiology. I know that most pa schools require A&P with lab. Do you guys have any suggestions? Any help will be very much appreciated!
  9. Hi all! I am applying to PA schools and need to fulfill ONE LAST academic requirement....Anatomy and Physiology 1 & 2 with lab. Still kicking myself for not taking the courses in college. I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Microbiology and a graduate degree in Bioterrorism and Infectious Diseases, so I meet all other prereqs. The problem is that I work a full time job with the FDA that is 50% travel, so I am not able to take the AP courses in person. I know this is a drawback for some schools, but I am afraid I don't have another option. Does anyone know of any online AP cla
  10. Mid-40's female nurse seen yesterday for a Boy Scout physical. During course of hx. review she gives me an interesting story. Hx. of heart murmur as small child that was noted to "go away" as she got older. Later in life (adulthood) she develops DOE with associated cyanosis. Pulse ox values consistently read in the low 90's at rest. ETT unremarkable. Has heart cath and reported to be normal. Normal LV function and EF. No hypertrophic changes or dilation. PCWP normal to exclude suspected pulmonary HTN. Only one test remains which coincidentally gives the diagnosis. What's the test an

  12. Hi everybody, At my university, I have to take a human/mammalian physiology class as one of the requirements for a Molecular Cell Bio major. Without realizing that I had to take that class (because I was being stupid and not double checking), I enrolled myself into a regular Human Physiology class (for PA school) and am currently getting a C. I know for sure that I would eventually have to take the Human/Mammalian Physiology course that is required. 1. Would PA schools consider the Human/Mammalian Physiology course as a Physiology class? Or is it strictly suppose to be focused on huma
  13. In Western Washington University, the course title for the human anatomy and physiology sequence is odd. BIOL 348 is "Human Anatomy and Physiology" and BIOL 349 is "Human Physiology". These are the links to the courses in the catalog: http://catalog.wwu.e...d=11&coid=96356 http://catalog.wwu.e...d=11&coid=96357 Will PA schools have an issue with the way my university titled these courses and not accept them? Also for some reason the BIOL 349 does not mention lab even though that class does include lab.. If anyone could give me advice regarding this that woul
  14. Hi everyone, My undergrad school has a strange A&P class--the biology department offers only a one semester class that covers A&P for all systems. I know most PA schools require 2 semesters, but I've also taken Anatomy & Physiology of Speech and Hearing Mechanisms through my minor, Speech and Hearing Sciences. Does anyone know if this will count towards A&P hours, or must the class be more general? Thanks!
  15. Hello, I'm starting down the path to become a P.A. and have a few questions I cannot find answers for here. 1) If one has a strong interest in pursuing EM, would it be advisable to delay starting PA school to earn an EMT-P over a simple EMT-B or can the skills learned in paramedic training be easily gained through a residency or on-the-job? I am an EMT-B and could become a paramedic in 1.5 years or else apply 1.5 years sooner. I want to be prepared to practice at the highest level in EM one day in the far future so the delay would be worth it if necessary. 2) Does PA School

  17. At the age of 20, I left everything behind in China to start a new life by myself in the United States. Since then, I have experienced the most challenging, exciting, and unforgettable time of my life. I have improved my English; I have adapted to the foreign culture; I have experienced the American college life; and the most important thing is—I have figured out what I want to do with my life: become a Physician Assistant. Before moving to the US, I had completed two years of pre-Med courses. Having always been interested in medicine, I thought becoming a medical doc
  18. Hello, I'm looking to apply to a handful of PA programs and my undergrad GPA is low but my post-bac GPA is good. However, I believe CASPA takes ALL grades. With that being said, would it be good idea to include a GRE score even though the schools I am applying to don't require it? Is this just nonsense from classmates filling my head? Also, if does Exercise Physiology is a kinesiology course, does it count towards my science GPA? My advisor thinks it should count because it's physiology but does not know the for sure answer. I am applying to Samuel Merritt, UC Davis, Touro, and p
  19. I still need to take Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) and most schools require it, if not strongly recommended. GPA: 3.63
  20. There are two year long anatomy courses that are taught at my college. I was wondering which one was sufficient for the application for most PA schools. The first one is Anatomy and Physiology 141 and 142. Although it's only a 100 level course it's probably three times as hard as my general biology course and it covered all of the organ systems. I was wondering if that's acceptable for PA schools because I can't imagine that PA schools would require the upper level course because of the difficulty. At least at my school, the only people who take the advanced anatomy and physiology class are Ki
  21. For any current PA students or pre-PA students, is anyone familiar with the laws governing PAs (Michigan)? Also, what are the current biggest issues in healthcare? Issues that PAs face? Any input would be greatly appreciated, as I am currently trying to prepare for a PA school interview. Thank you!
  22. So I am scheduled to complete the UNMC Master's DLPA program 10/11. I am logging my CME for 6/11 completion. I was wondering if I could essentially log 50 category II CME based on hour per hour basis? I have already spent over 50 hours on the degree. Anyone who has done the UNMC DLPA Master's program care to comment?
