  1. Hello everyone, I have a question if I were to be commissioned as a PA for the public health service. On their website they say some join as entry level public health practitioners while others are experienced experts trained in public health, clinical specialties, or research. " When you join the U.S Public Health Service Commissioned Corps you become part of a diverse group of individuals who have a unique sense of purpose. Many career choices tend to lock you in to one career path. USPHS Health Services Officers have many opportunities to work in a variety of agencies and to
  2. I am currently finishing up my didactic portion of PA school and considering the amount of loan debt I will have, I am considering enlisting into the airforce or navy after completing PA school in 12/2020. I was previously an Occupational Therapist though I am not sure if that will matter regarding pay etc. If anyone has advice regarding this process and details on loan repayment, I would greatly appreciate it.
  3. Hi Guys, I am a Pre-PA student and now an Ambassador for a non-profit called Building Bridges of Hope. LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR MEDICAL MISSION TRIP August 11th-18th. NO MEDICAL BACKGROUND NECESSARY I am leading a trip to the Elisa Pina Province, Dominican Republic for a medical mission trip. We will be in the most medically underserved area of the DR. In this trip, we will spend a week in El Llano where we spend most of our days helping in mobile medical clinics and other days helping in the communities where needed. The clinics will take place in very remote villages
  4. I'm considering doing a 2 year commitment to the Indian Health Service once I graduate (May 2018) to get some help paying back my loans. Does anyone have any experience as a PA with the IHS or what it's like working on a reservation? I've heard mixed reviews but it seems like a great way to help an underserved population while getting help paying back my pile of student loan debt.
  5. I just began community service with NY Cares (feeding the homeless, soup kitchen, helping elderly work out..., etc.). I already submitted my application but I was wondering if I should update my application with this since I only have 3 hours. Would it be worth it? I began doing this so I can better my application JUST in case this cycle doesn't work out even though I'm waiting on a lot of schools. Should I wait until next cycle or update my recent application with this? I'll most likely do 3-6 hours a week.
  6. In college I started participating in endurance running events, including a half marathon. I used these events as an opportunity to fundraise for the American Cancer Society among a few other local charities. Should I include this and how should I input it into CASPA?
