  1. Hello everyone! So in pursuit of attaining HCE for PA school, I recently became a NREMT. I got my first job soon after with an IFT private EMS company that turned out to be quite shady. Not to get to into it, but coming from prior career, I have an expectation of professionalism and was appalled at the sanitary and safety conditions of the equipment, and the constant flirtation with MediCare fraud. Needless to say, I resigned very quickly and am looking for something else. Which brings me to a question. I have 5 years experience as a Pharmacy Technician. This was while I was in high
  2. Hey all! I'm working on compiling my letters of recommendation for the upcoming CASPA cycle. (This will be my first time applying.) I have shadowed both a DO and a few PAs. Would it be better to have a letter of recommendation from the PA or the DO? The schools where I'm applying don't specify, and I already have professors writing my other two letters. Or, would it be better to have both the PA and the DO write letters for me? Thanks!
  3. Announcing the UPMC Critical Care Medicine Advanced Practice Provider Postgraduate Residency program based on the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital medical campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Acute care medicine fields such as critical care medicine are fast-paced, challenging and require motivated and dedicated individuals but also require a knowledgebase and skill set difficult to obtain quickly or effectively in a traditional on-boarding phase. This program was initially born out of a need to train advanced practice providers how to deliver ICU care in the numerous ICUs throughout our facilit
  4. Hi everyone! I am an MBA student in Pittsburgh, PA. I am working on my thesis in the area of health care management, attempting to solve a recruiting and retention problem I observed in local health care companies. (I am not a recruiter!) My research pointed me in this direction- to individuals who want to be PAs- as the solution to my problem. I believe my solution would simultaneously solve what I have come to learn is a real challenge for pre-PAs, and that is the difficulty obtaining patient care hours and PA shadowing hours. Is anyone reading this in the Pittsburgh area, so that
  5. Hello, I am currently a first year PA student at Arcadia University in Philadelphia. Originally from Pittsburgh, I am interested in going home for a rotation or two at the end of my clinical year (~Dec-June, 2014). I am a very hard worker, would bring positive energy and am fascinated by all types of medicine. If you are interested in teaching, just let me know and we can see if it would work out. Thank you! -T.Y.
  6. I apologize to everyone for not using the correct terminology. Forgive me for that. I was not aware of the technical term. ** "Probationary Accreditation" is a temporary status of accreditation assigned when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened. Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn
  7. This is my 2nd draft after a PA helped me with it. I hope it's much better now. Thank you very much for all your help. === “Stop being a doctor”. This is what my charge nurse said to me one night at my nurse aide job at a nursing home. She responded so after one of the patients complained of stomach ache, prompting me to ask her repeatedly for help. The said patient normally does not have stomach ache, which had me concerned. Eventually, the nurse gave the resident Maalox, but what she said to me only affirmed my desire to become a physician assistant (PA). Even though her remark hurt
