  1. With this thread, I am attempting to create a one-stop-shop for everyone's prerequisite questions, by compiling a complete list of every PA program's prereqs and experience requirements, as well as the location of each program. It would be nice if someone stickied this, and everyone can feel free to contribute. I apologize for the sporadic capitalization, I hand-typed all of this, as copying and pasting was far too messy and inconsistent. My first post is the nine schools in New England, since it's kind of the area I know the most about. I'm going to try and group schools by geographic area, except in the case of states like New York and California, which have so many programs they merit posts of their own. I hope someone out there finds this helpful. This is quite a project and will likely take a few weeks to complete, but I'll have it all done as soon as I can. Now for the list! Quinnipiac University Hamden, CT 27 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application Anatomy and Physiology (8 Credits) Microbiology (4 Credits) Biology (Human or Mamallian, 4 Credits) General Chemistry (8 Credits) Organic or Biochemistry (4 Credits) College Algebra, Statistics, or Equivalent (3 Credits) Minimum CGPA of 3.00 and SGPA of 3.00 Minumum 2,000 Hours of Direct Patient Care Yale University New Haven, Connecticut 27 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application General Biology (4 Credits) General Chemistry (4 Credits) Organic OR Biochemistry (4 Credits Anatomy and Physiology, 200+ Level (4 Credits) Biology, 300-400 Level, taken at a Four Year Institution (8 Credits) GRE Minimum SGPA of 3.0 Patient Care Experience Preferred Courses Do Not Expire University of New England Biddeford, Maine 24 Month Program At Least 90 Credits from Accredited Instution(s) for Application, B.S or B.A. Prior to Matriculation General Biology (8 Credits) OR Advanced Biology (6 Credits) General Chemistry (8 Credits Anatomy and Physiology (8 Credits) English (6 Credits, 3 of which must be in Composition) Advanced Courses in A+P, Pathophysiology, Microbiology, Statistics, Physics, Biochemistry, and Computer Science are Highly Recommended No Prereqs with a Grade of Less than C are Acceptable Minimum CGPA of 3.0, SGPA of 3.0 250 Hours of Direct Patient Care PA Shadowing HIGHLY Recommended and Will Consider Favorably Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Boston Campus Boston, MA 30 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application General Biology with At Least One Lab (7-8 Credits) Microbiology (4 Credits) Chemistry with At Least One Lab (7-8 Credits) Biochemistry (3 Credits) Human Anatomy and Physiology (6 Credits) Psychology (3 Credits) Statistics or Biostatistics (3 Credits) Each Course Must Have an Individual Grade of C or Better Minimum CGPA of 2.8, PGPA of 3.0 All Prerequisite Courses Completed within Last Ten Years, Reviewed on Case-by-Case Basis Patient Care Experience Strongly Recommended but Not Required Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Worcester Campus Worcester, MA 24 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application General Chemistry (4 Credits) Anatomy and Physiology (8 Credits) Organic Chemistry (4 Credits) Biochemistry (3 Credits) Microbiology (4 Credits) Statistics (3 Credits) Introduction to Psychology (3 Credits) Immunology and Genetics are Highly Recommended All Prerequisite Courses Completed within Last Ten Years, Reviewed on Case-by-Case Basis Shadowing of a Practicing PA for at Least 50 Hours is Strongly Recommended May Apply to Worcester, CT or Manchester, NH Program, But Not Both. Boston, MA Program is a Separate Entity and May Also Be Applied to Concurrently with Either the Manchester or Worcester Programs. No Health Care Experience Requirement CGPA of 2.75, SGPA of 2.75, PGPA of 3.00 Northeastern University Boston, MA 24 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application General Chemistry for Premedical or Science Majors with at Least One Lab (7-8 Credits) General Biology for Premedical or Science Majors with at Least One Lab (7-8 Credits)(Microbiology Can Substitute for One Biology Course, 3-4 Credits) Human Anatomy and Physiology, No Laboratory Required, Must Cover All Body Systems (6 Credits) Statistics (3 Credits) All science prerequisites must have been completed at a four year institution. Biology and chemistry must have been completed within the last seven years. Anatomy and physiology must have been completed within the last four years. There is no time limitation for statistics, and it may be completed at either a two or four year institution. AP credits are not accepted as prerequisites, but students that have AP credit and have taken advanced courses in biology and chemistry may substitute them in place f the basic courses. If biology and chemistry were taken more than seven years ago, more advanced and recent courses may be accepted, if taken in the last seven years at a four-year institution. 2,000 Hours of Patient Care Experiend Required, Full-Time Experience Preferred over Part-Time No GPA requirement was listed, but all prerequisites must be completed with a grade of B or better. Springfield College Springfield, MA 27 Month Program B.S. or B.A. Prior to Application General Chemistry (8 Credits) Biology (8 Credits) College Algebra or Higher (3 Credits The Following Courses must Have Been Successfully Completed Within 7 Years of Enrollment Human Anatomy and Physiology (8 Credits) Microbiology (3 Credits) Organic Chemistry (3 Credits) Biochemistry (3 Credits) Statistics (3 Credits) Minimum CGPA of 3.0, SGPA of 3.0 Minimum of 220 Hours of Healthcare-Related Experience Minimum of 30 Hours of PA Observation Of special note, Springfield's PA program is primarily a five-year track, starting in a student's freshman year. There are a very limited number of graduate positions open (generally 5-10), and these fill very quickly. Obviously, this leads to graduate postions being extremely competetive to get into.

While the loss of accredation is unlikely, it is a possibility, and should be considered.

  2. Custom search within all current PA schools to find the perfect PA program based on your needs, background and experience. Sort by GRE, Overall GPA, Science GPA, Tuition, Healthcare Experience, class size etc. etc. etc. http://www.paschoolfinder.com/pa-program-match/
  3. So, I'm hoping to do RT before PA, it's a field I'm really interested in but unfortunately where I live (Puerto Rico), there's no RT programs. So either I do nursing (not super excited about that), or I move to the states and do RT over there. I was wondering if any previous or current RT's know of a cheap place to go, assuming out-of-state tuition. Also, how can I go about funding an associate's or bachelor's if I already have a bachelor's? Will it have to be out of pocket? Thanks for the feedback, everyone. My other option might be nursing and NP but I'm not sure I want a nursing career. We'll see.
  4. Hello everyone, I'm new to the PA forum. Haven't seen a thread yet for the upcoming application cycle, so I thought I'd go ahead and start one. I'm sure I can't be the only one in the process of narrowing down my list of schools for next year! Just curious to see where everyone else is applying and what your backgrounds are. I'm going to do my best to stay active in these forums, because I think I can learn a lot from everybody here. This is my first time applying, and I'm sure there are people here who are re-applicants and can offer advice to those of us who are new to the process. A little bit about me -- I'm a recent University of Arizona graduate (Bear Down Cats!). I studied healthcare management and I'm currently working as an ER scribe in a rural hospital, about an hour outside of Charleston, SC. I'm taking the GRE in January and I'm currently finishing the last of my science pre-requisites. Once I receive an acceptance to PA school (fingers crossed), I'm comissioning in the Navy as a medical officer and I'll serve for at least two years after graduation. Planning to specialize in surgery, likely trauma and/or orthopedics. Here's a list of schools I'm considering, in order of preference. I know it's quite a few -- most likely, I will not apply to all of them. Let me know if you are also applying to any of these schools and/or what you've heard about these programs! Duke University Chapman University - Orange County, CA University of Alabama - Birmingham Treveccca Nazarene University - Nashville A.T. Still University - Phoenix South College - Knoxville, TN MUSC - Charleston, SC University of South Alabama University of Utah University of Florida University of Charleston - West Virginia Sullivan University - Louisville, KY Idaho State University Monmouth University - West Long Branch, NJ Seton Hall University - South Orange, NJ University of New England - Portland, ME Look forward to hearing more about everyone....and good luck to everyone applying in 2015!
  5. I took the PANRE today. This is the second time I have taken the PANRE, and this time was much worse than six years ago. For preparation, I used the Comprehensive Review book, the Lange question and answer book, and the Emory CD. I have been studying almost every day since February; MUCH more than I prepared the last time I took the exam. When I left the testing center, I felt.... well, "deflated" might be a good word. I am sure I failed. I kept count of how many questions I flagged, that I wasn't "sure" about, and I am embarrassed to even share that number. Any suggestions on what I can do to prep better for my retake in three months? Hippo? Different books? Find a new career? Thanks for listening; I think I needed to vent a little bit.
  6. Hello future-PAs, The PAEA just posted their new directory a few days ago. This is an incredible resource. They have made massive improvements - it's a whole new beast!!! Go check it out. They now allow you to access a limited portion of the directory for free with a ton of new information for those who paid the $30 membership fee. On the front page of the directory they list the accreditation status of each of the 183 programs in the US. The search engine for the directory is way more powerful and useful now too! http://directory.paeaonline.org/ Also a very cool resource, http://pafocus.org/ Cheers & Good Luck, HM2PA
  7. Hello, Does anybody know of any PA programs that don't look at your entire cumulative GPA? I heard that some programs will only look at your last 45 to 60 hours from your degree to consider you. My freshman and sophomore I had mostly B/C's and my junior/senior year of college was all A's/B's. My undergrad GPA was 2.8 and I have retaken a lot of my science and prerequisite courses over again from nearly 10 years ago and have achieved all A's. What bothers me is that my 2.8 will always be set in stone and I can't do anything about that. Any info would be appreciated Thanks,
