  1. Hello! I am an undergrad student who is considering applying to PA school. I was wondering if it's possible for PAs to do research and/or teach, like MDs can? I have read that it is more common for PAs who also have PhDs to do research, than "just" PAs. Is there anyone here that is a PA that does research or knows PAs that do research and/or teach? Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi everyone, Wondering if any of you have any insight into the validity of being a Clinical Research Assistant. I started working at a diabetes research clinic this summer and was offered the chance to continue working there this school year. My question is, should I be looking for something more hands on for HCE later? I know it depends of the school and how you sell your job description. In general I help out with in-clinics that have human subjects. I can do intake, vitals, medial history, lab tests, non-venous boood draws, device insertion/removal, and I work closely with NPs and PAs. It might not be life or death, but I am in a position where I am responsible for looking out for adverse hypo/hyperglycemic reactions and other study-related risks. Any thoughts?
  3. Hi everyone! As part of my dissertation, I'm surveying healthcare professionals about their experiences and opinions on mobile device use for professional purposes. Our goal is to develop new digital support tools for healthcare professionals that actually help them in their everyday practice. I would very much appreciate your help! It will only take about 10 minutes to complete the anonymous survey. All responses will remain confidential and secure.

  4. Be a part of a precision medicine research study! My name is Scott McGrath, and I'm a doctoral candidate for a degree in biomedical informatics from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. As part of my dissertation, I'm surveying healthcare providers about their experiences, knowledge, and confidence in interpreting genetic test results with patients. There are three main objectives: 1) To evaluate how different healthcare providers with different levels of education on genetic testing interpret genetic test results; 2) To determine the confidence and self-efficacy of healthcare providers as they interpret genetic test results with patients; 3) To capture healthcare providers’ opinions about, and experiences with, direct-to-consumer genetic tests (like 23andMe). My concern is that the burdens of helping patients understand the influx of genetic data will fall largely on the shoulders of primary care providers (internists, PAs, pediatricians, family practice, advance practice nurses, etc.) as there are relatively few certified genetic specialists (only ~1,500 clinical geneticist, and 4,244 genetic counselors). I want to better understand how prepared we are for this new kind of data set. To participate, you can take the survey below. It takes an average of 15-20 minutes to complete. I know your time is valuable, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at this email address (smcgrath@unomaha.edu) or (402) 577-0501. The poll is anonymous and IRB approved from UNMC (irbora@unmc.edu). I am 30 surveys away from hitting my sample size, so even just a couple of completed surveys is very helpful! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PMR2DBW Thank you in advance for your time!

  6. I discovered this site on Clinician1.com this morning and it is great. Osmosis.org Check it out??
  7. ATTENTION ALL CURRENT AND PROSPECTIVE PA STUDENTS! We are conducting a survey as part of a Master’s Research Project investigating any potential impacts on health as a result of attending a PA training program. We are looking for current and prospective PA students to answer a few questions regarding their dietary, sleeping, and exercising habits. The survey is 14 questions and will take less than 5 minutes to complete. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to assist us in our research. Please follow the link provided below to access the survey. Access link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VJSZKNX 5 WEEKS LEFT until this survey will be closed. Please take about 5 minutes to complete this 14 question survey on the investigation on the health consequences of PA school.
  8. Hi everyone, first time poster here. Currently, I am an EMT on an ALS rig, shadowing a PA, volunteering as a standby event EMS for the racetrack, concerts, parades, and 49ers, and helping out with a mobile clinic to serve the homeless. I'll be traveling to Haiti this summer with Project Medishare. (other volunteer work but won't bore you all.) So my problem is, I am taking classes now and doing two full days of clinical research at UCSF and then working 12 hours on the ALS rig. While also doing the above mentioned volunteer hours every weekend (or late weekday nights). I am over extending myself. Would dropping the research at UCSF hurt my application? I believe research is more geared toward Med school...correct me if I'm wrong. I do enjoy the research (and thinks it does set me apart as an applicant)... but I love the patient contact with EMT and my volunteering opportunities. And want to maintain my good GPA. Anything helps.
  9. Hello PA Forum, I wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations for specific PA schools considering my following goals and statistics. I would like to apply this summer for 2019 matriculation. Goals: Ideally I would like to work as a PA in a hospital setting. While I don't quite know my exact area of interest, I prefer primary care, emergency, and internal medicine over surgery. Additionally, I have a strong interest in contributing to research. Statistics/Background: 3.5 cumulative GPA, 3.45 science GPA at a private academic university 159 Verbal (82%tile), 158 Quant (70%tile), 4.5 Writing (82%tile) 9100 hours in paid and volunteering positions in the medical field (almost all clinical research) of which ~2000hrs were direct patient contact. Multiple presentations, with a publication in progress. Lots of shadowing with multiple medical professionals, but getting more with PAs I meet all prerequisites for most schools, but note I took physio without the lab (although I took anatomy with lab), and I never took a medical terminology course Pretty diverse extra-circulars with leadership roles and teaching experiences Thank you for your insight! Best, -pleaseandthankyou
  10. Hey guys, I'm not planning on applying for a while as I am making sure I have my ducks in order. One question I can't seem to find an answer on CASPA's GPA FAQ is regarding research. At my school (Humboldt State University), all biology majors are required to take at least a semester of research as a letter grade. Throughout my major, I have accumulated 9-semester units as a letter grade [27 units total towards research] of research that being undergraduate research in chemistry and biology as well as a year internship at UCSF. These 9 units are a letter grade and on my transcript as CHEM 495 or BIOL 499 or BIOL 482. So my question is DO THESE COUNT TOWARDS MY CASPA sGPA?
  11. We are doing research on the learning styles of professional physician assistants. There's lots of information on meeting the needs of the physician population, but hardly any on physician assistants and other mid-levels. Looking to have 10-15 phone conversations with PAs who might collaborate with us. Give me a shout if you're interested. poterucha.jeanne@mayo.edu or @jpots
  12. Hi there! I am a Yale On-Campus PA program applicant and wanted to get some opinions on Yale's curriculum, specifically its research piece. How do current students and alumni feel about the research component? Was it beneficial? Did it increase opportunities and/or improve your clinical abilities? Thanks for your help!
