  1. Hello! I am a 23 year old Mexican-American female who is starting the Physician Assistant Program at Philadelphia University in July 2017. I am having a very difficult time finding scholarships and financial aid, especially those that I am eligible for before actually starting the semester. Any direction would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Does anyone know of any private scholarships or grants to apply for? I will be starting at Wingate's PA school in August, which is in North Carolina. I have already applied for the Forgivable Education for Service Loan... I know about the NHSC scholarship/forgiveable loan but I'm not positive I want to practice in underserved communities after graduating. Please if anyone knows of any other options, I would greatly appreciate it!
  3. If you can basically get a Bachelors degree in what ever you want to, then why do PA schools even require it. Why can't you just take the pre-requisites and gain HCE and apply?
  4. Private scholarships, grants, and fellowships. Disclaimer: you'll notice a few are specific to Texas or the DFW region. There are plenty for all PA students, regardless of your state, to apply to. If you have any to add, please add them below or send me a private message. Thanks! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/12/private-scholarships-grants-and.html

  6. I'm 38. Wet to college on and off for many years due to personal and family issues (two surgeries of my own, taking care of a very sick family member for ten years and having to work two jobs to support my parents, among other things). I also have lots of withdrawals in my history and one "F" in Physics, which I retook. I've always dreamt of becoming a physician, but due to my blemished academic history, it is obvious I'll never be accepted. I'm OK with this, and am now trying to decide among the following programs: 1) Bachelor of Nursing 2) Physician Assistant 3) Nurse Anesthetist I am three classes away from graduating with a B.A. in Liberal Arts. This can be easily accomplished by the end of 2014. My GPA lies somewhere between 2.8 and 3.0. Here are my questions: 1) Should I graduate with a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts and then go for one of the degrees listed above? Or should try to get into nursing school now, before I graduate with my Bachelor's? I am afraid I will not qualify for financial aid for a second Bachelor's if I graduate now. 2) If I were lucky enough to get in, would I still be able to work? I am in a loosely-related healthcare field, and do three 13-hour shifts per week. 3) How long would this process take? I am trying to figure out what is the most realistic, cost-effective and efficient way to do it. I've always known I belonged in healthcare, and by now I am certain this is not going to change. I am poor, but healthy, unmarried, no children, bright and more than willing to go the extra mile. Any advice would be appreciated!
  7. Curious about NHSC Loan Repayment or the NHSC Scholarship? In this blog posting, I've included the former as well as many other loan repayment options and scholarship options you might not know about. Take advantage of this information! You might be a current PA student, a practicing PA, or a pre-PA student considering repayment options for your loans. Make sure you know other resources out there before you make a decision! This information is just to get you started and is by no means all inclusive. I realize there may be many more options out there, but I did the best I could to get your mind thinking. Good luck fellow PA-S and PA-C! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/03/physician-assistant-school-scholarships.html
  8. I am thrilled to be starting PA school this summer. From what I understand, most of the clinical sites are based an hour plus away from campus (not considering the horrific traffic). A lot of students move after the didactic year to be closer. I have kids that are in Elementary school and I really don't want to have to move twice. So - would you recommend that I either stay close to campus and then deal with commuting or short term housing options once I reach rotations? Or should I find a place somewhere between and commute both years?? Right now I lean towards being close to campus and dealing with rotations as they come.
  9. Hi Everyone, I have recently become interested in the Physician Assistant career. Here is some information about me. I have a BS in Biochemistry, minor in Psychology 3.78 GPA, higher science GPA (maybe 3.9). I graduated in 2007 and since that time I have been involved in research at a University and at the National Institutes of Health as a Research Assistant and Clinical Research Recruiter. I was also just offered a position as a Research Coordinator at the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Thus, my experience has mostly been research and my interactions with subjects/patients has been research based not clinical. I am interested in getting some clinical experience and working toward my clinical hours for PA school (some schools require 1000-2000 hours). I do not have any EMT or CNA certifications at this time. I also need a steady income to support myself. I was thinking of taking the Research Coordinator position and doing some volunteering at a clinic for underserved populations in my area in the evenings and weekend. Do you think this would count as direct patient care hours? In addition, what are some jobs that one can obtain patient care hours with out a certification as a CNA/EMT? In addition, I think the Ambulance is volunteer in my community. Does that mean that I can become an EMT for free? Are volunteer EMTs volunteering after their job? Please let me know if you have any thoughts, etc. I would greatly appreciate any help. I am also very interested in the PA/MPH dual degree. Are there any experiences that you think could help one get into a degree like that? In addition, I am interested in the National Health Service Corps Scholarship and if you know anything about that I am greatly interested as well. Thank you for all your help. Veronica
  10. Hello all, I'm a prospective student for either a fall 2013 or spring 2014 matriculation. I have not yet been accepted to a program, and am curious about opportunities might be out there for scholarships and financial aid. I have heard a little about NHSC and about Military scholarships, could anybody elaborate on the process? -How might I apply? -How soon? -What's the commitment? -What are my chances? (what are they looking for?) I'm finishing polishing my caspa narrative, and submitting this Friday. Any insight or advice is greatly appreciated! -Ken
  11. Has anyone listed scholarships in the awards section of CASPA? I received a couple merit-based scholarships in high school for my undergrad. Since they were technically awarded to me when I was a high school senior, can I even list them? Thanks in advance. :)
  12. Hello I am a first year PA student and I am struggling with my gross Anatomy class and cadaver labs. It seems like the harder I study for these classes, the worse my grades get. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. One of my problems is that I study by myself all the time because I always feel like study groups study at a fast pace for me. Therefore, I end up studying by myself and not understanding the material:( I just found one study partner and it seems to help a little. I need to bring up my grade for anatomy ASAP. Any suggestions? Thanks
  13. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone who has gone through PA school or is in PA school right now could give me some resources to find scholarships for PA school. I have gone through Fastweb and tried to google it, but I really can't find any scholarships for PA school. I know about the repayment programs and scholarships which I plan to apply for when NHSC decides to open up this years applications, but I wanted to look for extra help.... Thanks!
