  1. Has anyone here taken any pre-req classes online through Doane University? Wondering about biochem, but haven't found much about it online. Also wondering if Doane's course is doable course for someone who hasn't taken orgo since 2015.
  2. Who's been accepted to PA programs where the majority of pre req courses were taken online?

  4. Hi everyone, I'm currently in a non healthcare position and have been for years. That said, my heart has always been in medicine and I finally decided that if I have another 40 years of work left in me, it isn't too late to follow my passion. *Technically, it is for some schools, as certain classes are over 10 years old =P I plan to take an accelerated Gen Bio I and II at a community college this fall [to satisfy some pre-requisites]. Now, here's my dilemma. What should be my primary focus in Spring if I want to apply next Summer? Let's assume I have acquired 1,
  5. Hello everyone! New to the forum and glad to be here! I'm very interested in a career as a PA and I'm trying to figure out which path I should take. I am getting ready to transfer to the University of Washington with the intent of earning a BS in general biology in order to meet my pre-req requirements and hopefully then a) getting an entry level medical job or b) joining the Air Force and go for Pararescue, both in order to gain some experience and to have some funding before going to PA school. I'm wondering if this is a common path that I can be confident in and run with, or if I should
  6. I have applied, the application was completed in mid July. Anyone else? Has anyone gotten an interview or heard anything yet?
  7. Hey Pre-PA students, I am currently attending a four year university in North Carolina, majoring in Sport Management. After extensive shadowing with two different specialty PA's, I've decided that I want to pursue the career. However, I am in a unique situation because I am a rising senior with 8 classes left to take for my Sport Management degree and I am curious as to how to go about becoming a PA in the most cost effective and most direct way possible. I've read that the major isn't important as long as I'm successful in it (which I am). I'm just concerned about whether I should get my
  8. Hey everyone!! My name is Karen and I am an undergrad in UMCP. I am very interested in this PA program and I was wondering if those who got accepted can share with me how their pre-reqs were :) I would really appreciate it :)

  10. Greetings forum! I have a couple questions for everyone. I am 21 and I recently switched majors in hopes to become a PA student, and need all of the help I can get. I will be taking classes at Oakland Community College as well as Oakland University in hopes to major in Health Sciences and get accepted into PA school at Wayne State University. I am very lost on what I need to do from start-to-finish and some sort of direction would be great. I am a very checklist-goal oriented person, so direction is key for me. My main questions are; 1) What are the pre-reqs from either colleges that Wayne
  11. [h=1]Omega-3 Fish Oil: Separating Fact From Fiction http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/762318?src=mp&spon=38[/h] Another dietary supplement is in the news recently, and it seems to be another flip-flop message where conventional wisdom is being overturned by randomized clinical trials. The study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine [1] recently, a meta-analysis of 14 randomized trials conducted by the Korean Meta-analysis Study Group, reaching the conclusion that omega-3 supplements do not prevent cardiovascular disease. Several points should be kept in mind. First,
  12. Does being bilingual indicate fluency? Or just some proficiency in another language? I am able to speak and understand Arabic and Spanish well, however, I am not necessarily fluent. Some admins are saying that I can put trilingual on my applications and others are saying that I have to be fluent to put that down. It will really up my chances of getting into the PA programs I want if I can say that I am trilingual! I just want to make sure that I am not providing false information. Advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated
  13. My application is already submitted, but I was thinking today about something I wrote and have gotten myself worried! I am currently working as a CNA in surgery services at a nearby hospital. Although my scope of practice as a CNA does not technically include things like wound care and removing staples, I am often permitted to do such tasks (after being trained). I wanted to make the point in my personal statement that I am eager to take on more responsibilities and be able to provide more care for patients, and listed a few of the things that I have been trained to do on my unit. However,
