  1. Hello Everyone, Is anyone aware of any virtual shadowing opportunities through zoom or any other video platform during this COVID-19 Pandemic?
  2. I am looking for PA to shadowing in the Des Moines, Iowa area and the surrounding metro area. I have been looking for an opportunity for some time and hope to shadow PA's in many different areas of medicine. Currently I work as a CNA and can accommodate my schedule easily to allow whatever works for the PA's schedule in allowing me to shadow them. Please reply to this if you are able to allow a pre-PA student to shadow with you. Thank you very much.
  3. I tried calling local hospitals and clinics and all say they are either booked or I would need to shadow a PA I already know because they won't find me a placement. I would appreciate it if someone can give me the contact information for a PA in western mass that is kind enough to have me shadow them.
  4. Hi, I was fortunate to shadow one PA who was amazing, it was family medicine in a clinic 9-5 type of gig. She was very nice and transparent. In all honesty, there were parts of the job I did not feel were all that great for example, majority of the patient experience was amazing. Things that I wasn't sure about: Seemed like a good amount of computer work between patient's - one of the reason's I am pre-PA is to try to not be locked to a computer so much. The area was rough and there were some homeless patient's etc. so that was sort of eye opening and I noticed to be an effective PA you need to truly touch and be very close to all types of people. In particular the homeless person with an infected hand and the woman coughing all over everything was something I was a little taken back with initially. Overall, I loved the patient interactions and feel if I were the actual PA it would be that much more fun to troubleshoot and problem solve. I have another shadow opportunity in a completely different specialization (neurology) which I am very excited about. My main questions were: Did you know right away after Shadowing, PA was the right fit for you? 100%? Or did it take a few settings and time to find out where you envisioned your dream specialization. Is it realistic to think I could eventually become a PA and get away from more of the 9-5 office setting? Something more fast paced and maybe shift work? I believe the area where the clinic was located (in the ghetto) and demographic sort of played into the experience, is that a tale tell sign I could be wrong for the profession? Please be as honest as possible as I am considering a career shift and I can handle the truth. I am trying to approach the situation as realistic as possible but there are still many "blind spots" as I have only shadowed one PA thus far. Thank you very much in advance!!
  5. My Name is Stephanie, I am 28 years old and a recent graduate with my BS in Psychology and pre-med studies. I am currently applying for my Masters in Physician Assistant studies. I have shadowed abroad in the past for the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children in the Dominican Republic and Peru this past year and I would welcome an opportunity to observe you work. I would be grateful for any amount of time that you could spare, whether that’s one day or a few and I am very flexible at your convenience. If you are amenable to letting me shadow you, please let me know of some days that might work for you and I will arrange my schedule to make those dates work. I am happy to forward you my resume so that you may see my lifelong dedication and experience to the medical field aside from my studies. I realize that you are busy and that your time is valuable. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me by email sdelima1991@gmail.com or phone 603-318-5640. Thank you so much for your consideration—I look forward to hearing back from you. Kind Regards, Stephanie De Lima

  8. Hi everyone! I’m a pre-PA student looking to shadow PA’s in Charlotte and surrounding areas if necessary. I’ve already reached out to the NCAPA and received a list of PA’s willing to allow students to shadow them and have had luck with 4 so far since the beginning of this year. I would love to get into the ED although I know it’s difficult with HIPAA. Surgery also interests me, but I’m really open to anything I haven’t seen already, which includes CT surgery, neurology, integrative oncology, and outpatient ortho. Please let me know of any opportunities out there, and thank you kindly in advance.

  13. Hi! Im a Biology student at FIU, currently taking my pre reqs for PA school. I am finding it quite difficult to find a PA willing to let me shadow them. I have emailed some. A couple responded stating that they weren't allowed to as they work in a private practice. I know a couple of NPs that will let me shadow them, but of course my school requires a LOR from a PA. Anyway, my email is dbrow251@fiu.edu! If you know anyone or are a PA willing to let me shadow them, don't be afraid to message me. I will of course provide a copy of my resume! Thank you!
