  1. Hello! My name is Aranza and I am a recent Biology graduate from Florida International University on a Pre-PA track. I am looking for a PA that I can shadow in the Miami-Dade area. I am appreciative of any available shadowing opportunity. Please feel free to reach out to me at aranzazuriaa@gmail.com. Thank you so much!
  2. Hello everyone, I am a current undergraduate senior attending Florida State University. I am majoring in Psychology with minors in Biology and Chemistry. I have been gaining my patient care experience hours at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare as a Patient Care Assistant/Tech. I have previously shadowed a Family Medicine PA-C in Jacksonville but would like to find a closer opportunity as I am in my last semester of undergraduate. I plan to apply to PA schools during the 2023-2024 cycle. Please feel free to message me or comment under this post!
  3. Hello, I am new to this forum and am looking for some guidance/help on how I should go about building my application for PA school before deadlines in order to potentially attend in the Fall of 2024 if accepted. I am currently an undergrad getting my bachelors Biology, and am projected to graduate in December 2023. My current GPA is a 3.8, and I have 3 prerequisites for PA school to still complete after graduation which are Biochemistry, Anatomy and Medical Terminology (I can easily complete this over the summer/winter break). I have very brief shadowing experience with a cardiology PA, who I shadowed with for about 20 hours (I want to do more shadowing hours in other specialties). My biggest dilemma here is that I have no PCE. I've been a full-time student my entire academic career, as well as being heavily relied upon by my family. I struggle to find the time management to keep my grades up as well as hold down a full/part-time job, but I desperately want to get PCE in order to strengthen my application. I am also aware I need to take the GRE, which I planned on taking late this spring/early this summer. I also have a research opportunity on parthenogenesis in invasive snake species that I was told would look good on my application, but I am not sure. Any volunteering I have could be considered as being a coach for my hometown's High School volleyball team over the summer, but that's not anything medical related. Is there any help someone can give me about how I should go about completing my application so I can successfully apply for the Fall of 2024? Or any advice on how to strengthen it? Any and all advice is appreciated, please be kind. Thank you very much!
  4. Finally got a call from a local health system about my application to shadow. I asked to shadow a PA but instead they gave me 30 hours of shadowing different NPs. Do you think this will be acceptable to most programs since both are mid-levels? I have another 15 hours shadowing a doc and 25 shadowing a PA in other specialties.
  5. Hello! I am a soon-to-be college graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am currently looking for shadowing opportunities near Smyrna, Marietta, Dunwoody, and the Atlanta area. Please let me know if you know of anyone that would allow me to shadow! Thank you for your time.

  8. Hello, I am a Stony Brook graduate and Pre-PA student looking to connect with Physician Assistant's in New York (Long Island or NYC).

Nicole
  9. Hi all, I am seeking a shadowing opportunity in or near the central Massachusetts area before I apply to PA programs in the upcoming cycle. A bit about myself - I attended the University of Miami and graduated with a degree in Health Science this past December. I have worked as an EMT and currently work as a medical assistant at a local pediatric practice to experience working with patients. I am hoping to gain firsthand experience with the profession by shadowing a practicing PA-C in any specialty. I have attended virtual shadowing sessions with PAs but feel as though an in-person shadowing opportunity (and mentor if possible) would allow me to get a better grasp on the PA’s role within a healthcare team and insight on the day-to-day of the profession. I am located in Worcester county, but will travel anywhere for an opportunity like this. If you, or someone you know, are willing to open your doors to me so I can observe and learn about the profession, please send me a PM, email me at jackcgingrich@gmail.com, or leave a comment below. Thank you for your time and consideration!
  10. Hello, I am president of the Pre-PA club at SFSU. I am looking for shadowing opportunities here in the Bay Area.

  11. Hello, I am currently a Pre-PA student in the Denver, Colorado area applying this cycle and am currently looking for a PA in any speciality to shadow during the month of July at some point. I have received the COVID vaccination series. Please reply or reach out if you are available! Thanks so much!
  12. I am currently in the process of my first application cycle and would love to connect with current Oklahoma P.A.'s for advice/shadowing opportunities and any Oklahoma Pre-P.A. students that are going through this journey as well!
  13. Hello, I am currently residing in Bellingham Washington. I am eager to get some shadowing experience prior to applying to PA school this year. I have received both covid vaccines, and would love to shadow in person. Please let me know if you have any ideas. I have reached out to several PAs in the area and have yet to hear back from anyone. Thank you!
  14. 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!

  16. I am applying for 2021-22 cycle. I graduated recently and don't have any formal work experience. I am tired of applying to jobs, cold-calling clinics and hospitals for jobs. I even offered to work for free. I am licensed (EKG, and phleb) then also I am getting rejected. Nobody wants to hire anymore, they don't even need free services. I am a person of color, I hope that is not the reason.
  17. I am a junior pre-PA student located between San Antonio and Austin really needing shadowing hours. I understand because of covid this may be more difficult to obtain, but I am a fairly average (maybe slightly below average if I am being honest) candidate and would like to do everything I can to give myself an extra edge.
  18. Hi! I am looking for a PA to shadow in the Houston area.
  19. I am looking to set up a shadowing schedule with a PA in the Indianapolis area whether it be once a week, twice a week, or every other week. I am from Fishers, so if you are practicing there that is a plus!
  20. I am looking for online or in person (not hopeful for this at the moment) shadowing opportunities in the La Crosse area. Anywhere in Wisconsin would be amazing as well.
  21. My name is Brinnlie Harward and I am looking for any shadowing opportunities that may be available in the Salt Lake area.

  24. Hey everyone! While working as a Medical Assistant, I shadowed a PA at the same clinic. Is this seen as okay? There are three clinics in total so I didn't shadow everyday with him.
