  2. Hello, I am president of the Pre-PA club at SFSU. I am looking for shadowing opportunities here in the Bay Area.

  4. Hello, I am looking to shadow a PA in Orange County area/ LA county area. Preferably Orange County, anyone have any advise on how to find someone to shadow. All of the PAs that i have asked aren't allowed to let me shadow them. I have already applied for PA school however, have yet to be accepted, I am going to reapply and looking to get some more experience. Also, unrelated but does anyone know if being a SCRIBE would count as direct patient care?? I recently was offered a position however, I currently work in the pharmaceutical industry and it would be A LOT less pay, with no opportunity to get insurance, Im unsure whether i should accept it or not??? THANKS!!!
  5. Hi my name is Jennifer, I would love to apply to PA school, but I’m having a hard time to find a PA to shadow. Does someone have any suggestions in Miami area?
  6. Hi everyone! My name is Rachel and I am an upcoming PA student starting in May 2019 at USF's PA program in Tampa, Fl. I got my clinical experience first working as an EMT for an ambulance company, but later switching to being a medical assistant for a private practice dermatology experience in Plant City, FL (about 30 min from Tampa). I gained such valuable knowledge from both jobs! I currently still work for the derm practice, but will be leaving when I attend PA school. I just wanted to reach out to the pre-PA community because I'm sure there are a number of you who are looking to get clinical experience, and I wanted to see about giving the opportunity to someone who could gain valuable experience from this position. and FYI you do not need a medical license for this job, they do on the job training. I work here with the doctor as well as the PA. If you're interested, let me know and I'm happy to answer any questions and put you in contact with my office manager. :) Rachel

  11. I'm looking for shadowing opportunities anywhere in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, or sounding areas.
  12. Hello all! I am going to be applying for the PA class starting in 2019. Can anyone give me a ballpark answer on how much patient experience is needed? I have 520 hours patient contact and 160 PA shadow hours. The website only says 80 is competitive but I thought it must be much more than that!
  13. Hey guys! Does anyone have any advice on how to find a PA to shadow? I don't know any personally and am having a hard time finding someone. I know a few doctors who work with PA's themselves however, due to HIPPA and hospital rules, they are not able to have anyone shadow them apparently? So what are some ways that I can get into contact with PAs? (I am in the Chicago land area by the way) Thank you!!
  14. Hello! I am looking to shadow a PA in any specialty. I am a pre-PA student at the University of South Florida and am applying to PA school this cycle. Please pm me if you have any leads or if you would be willing to have me tag along. Thank you!
  15. Hi, I am looking for PA's to shadow in the San Jose area, but I am willing to travel further for shadowing. I am a pre-PA student entering my 4th year as an undergraduate at UCLA, pursuing a degree in Biology. I am currently a volunteer at my university hospital's child life department and I also volunteer with an organization that provides healthcare services to the underserved community. I also worked with geriatric patients in a program that paired patients with students. I would be interested in shadowing PA's of any specialty. Please send me a private message if you are willing to let me shadow! Thanks, Hilary
  16. Hi, I'm looking for a PA to shadow in the Charlotte, NC or Columbia, SC area! I have already shadowed a PA in internal medicine and have shadowed an MD and NP in pediatrics. I'm specifically looking for opportunities to shadow in dermatology, gynecology, and internal medicine, but I am open to any specialty. Please let me know if you are available or if you know of a PA who is!
  17. So I am currently a medical technologist generalist. I do pretty much everything in our hospital's main clinical lab: chemistry, rapid serology, blood banking, micro planting, urinalysis, coagulation and hematology. I do not do phlebotomy and I have no direct patient care in my job. I have been working here for 7 months (started 2 days after undergrad graduation), and I plan to stay here until the spring to make it a full year before I look for a job doing direct patient care. I have my EMT cert and some volunteer experience. My question is, considering that soon I'll have 2,000 hours of HCE, how many hours of direct patient care should I accumulate before I apply to PA schools/when should I apply? Other info: Studying for the GRE now to take it in December (Tips would be appreciated! Math is my trouble area.) 3.9 GPA Shadowed 3 different PAs for a total of roughly 30 hours, continuing to shadow.
  18. Hi all! So I am shadowing a PA again tomorrow that I shadowed earlier this month. She reached out to me after I sent her a letter at her practice expressing my desire to shadow. She was eager to answer my questions and go into detail explaining each patient case to me. I was wondering what questions would be good to ask her tomorrow. Would it be appropriate to ask her if she would be willing to write a letter of recommendation? To shadow her again? If she would be willing to serve as sort of a mentor to me over email? I don't want to be too forward, but I do eventually need a letter of rec from a PA and it can be hard to find PAs to shadow! Thanks!
  19. Hello! My name is Piper and I am looking to find a physician assistant to shadow in the Grand Rapids Area or near Detroit. I would be so grateful! I am a senior at GVSU and just applied to PA schools.
  20. Aloha! The path to becoming a PA is a little more challenging on such a small island :) If anyone can point me in the right direction of finding PA shadowing opportunities, volunteering opportunities, or ways to gain more HCE, I would so appreciate it!
  21. Hello! I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. Thanks!
  22. Hi! I have a friend who is currently finishing her undergrad and is interested in the PA profession. Any PAs in the Orlando area willing to have a shadow for a few hours? One specialty of interest for her is interventional radiology. Thank you!
  23. Hello everyone, I am a registered nurse based in Atlanta near the Sandy Springs area.

I am courteous, respectful, and professional. Please send me a message on here or reply in a post below and I will be sure to get back with you. Thank you so much, Curlsz
  24. I am currently looking for some PAs to shadow in Maryland or the DC area. I am flexible when it comes to times, and am okay with a bit of a drive, as I commute about an hour to school 5 days a week and 2 times a week in the summer. I am a fourth-year undergraduate student majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in Psychology. I am CNA and BLS certified and have worked and as an MA in urgent care for about a year and a half. I am also the vice-president of my schools Pre-Physician Assistant Society. I would love to get to spend some more time shadowing PAs around the area in any specialty. Please feel free to comment, message me, or reach out if you have any advice about shadowing opportunities. Thanks!
