  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.
  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 provid

  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.su
  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
  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 (
  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
  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!
  13. Hello everyone! Took a little forum hiatus to focus on being a working PA, but since I've been practicing for 8 months now and things are a little slow here at work I figured I'd contribute to our little online community... Finding pivotal research articles has always been a goal of mine since I started working, yeah know, to guide thinking and support the management. Plus well written articles are worth their weight in gold for historical, pathophysiologic, and thought provoking changes. I'm specifically looking for papers regarding studies about the PA profession and our impac
  14. Clinical Research Internship Opportunity Attention all prospective PA students. Are you looking to satisfy the patient care experience requirement, receive a letter of recommendation and earn scholarships to help with PA school tuition? Our clinical research team at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center has four positions open for paid, direct patient care experience in OB/GYN and pediatrics. Actively recruiting trial indications: pre-term labor tocolytic, HPV-related cervical dysplasia treatment vaccine and RSV prophylactic vaccine in pregnancy. These spots are reserved for people that have com
  15. How important is research experience in the application process?
  16. I've decided to change careers, and wanted to triple check and confirm something so I don't misrepresent anything on my future application. On CASPA there's PCE, HCE, Employment, Research, etc. I've worked for years in the pharmaceutical industry and have experience in clinical trials. Would this all be under HCE, or Research? I thought it would be under Employment, but that's for "paid work done outside of the health care field," and I would think pharmaceuticals would be in the health care field. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  17. Hi everyone! After reading every day for the last 2 years I finally decided to make an account and post. I am in a tough spot right now in terms of when to apply, or what my next step should be. I'll post my stats below. Undergrad Ed School: University of Pittsburgh, B.S. Natural Sciences (Graduating this Spring) Cumulative Undergrad. GPA: 3.15 Science Undergrad. GPA: 3.05 Just a bit of a background on my low GPA...I sucked my freshman year. Absolutely lazy. But I've stepped it up since and have A/A-/B+ in the upper level courses (Ochem, A&P I & II, Patho, Micro, Nutrition, Med
  18. Good afternoon all! Prefacing my first post by thanking everyone for their contributions - this forum has provided me with excellent info on the PA profession. Now, a little bit about me: I graduated from University in May of 2015, and have been struggling with the decision of whether to go into clinical medicine or research since my freshman year. I dipped my toes into both realms throughout college, working as a research assistant for 2 years, and as an emergency room patient advocate for 3 years. My current job is split between both fields as well - I am a research coordinator but act
  19. Hello everyone, I'm a second year PA student about to start my emergency med rotation. I'm interested in doing research on an EM topic and submitting it for presentation at the SEMPA or AAPA conference, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I have limited research experience apart from being a lab tech for a geneticist, so I'm starting from scratch. But I'm motivated if given the guidance. I'd like to learn about what kinds of research students are able to do over the short (5-6 week) time span of a rotation, but can't find a way to filter those out in general academic search en
  20. Hi everyone, I'm a PhD student and for my thesis I'm researching PA professional roles in healthcare delivery. I would love to hear your insights about the profession, why you chose it, what you love most about your work with a brief online questionnaire. It should only take 10 minutes and would *really* help me out! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. My end goal is to promote the PA profession to the public, since there is such an unfortunate lack of knoweldge on PAs and what they do! Thanks for your help :) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FX67PDN Thanks for your help
  21. Are PA students encouraged to do research or required to make presentations? By "presentation", I don't mean presenting a patient during clinicals. I mean standing in front of a class and presenting some disease or research topic. I heard this is often required in medical school, so now I'm wondering about PA school. Thanks
  22. My name is Dan and I am a graduate student at San Jose State University, pursuing a MS in Human Factors and Ergonomics. I am currently running an anonymous survey study assessing the impact of injection device usability on patient acceptance and usage of injectable medication (found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/37KK3WB). I am doing this to demonstrate to pharmaceutical companies just how important it is for patients that an injection device is usable and user friendly. I plan on publishing my results so that awareness of this issue endures, spreads, and hopefully influences the des

  24. Hello!! I am torn on whether or not to list my wonderful MPH research experience on CASPA. CASPA clearly states that research done for credit should not be listed... so I am instructed not to list it. However, the grading system that is used for my thesis is S/US, which capsa doesn't recognize as for credit. Oh, bother. I think this question is really about what kind of research has been done outside of the auspices of academics, which this does not fall into. Any thoughts? Many thank yous in advance, and forgive if this question is more straightforward that I perceive it to be! D
  25. Looking for some HCE feedback. Been working @ VA for 3+ years, all PTSD research - first two years were as EMG startle tech (running emg testing 1on1, 12 patients a day) working on base with AD marines. Now last 8 months is PTSD screening (CAPS) appointments with veterans I screen for eligibilty and schedule myself. Appointments include 2x 1on1 sessions; I assess for validity and we discuss trauma, symptoms and other life stressors in depth, before they are randomized (if I deem eligible) to a treatment program. Usually 5+ hours 1on1 per patient. Also includes lab work, I don't dr
