  1. Hello everyone, I am a 3rd year neuroscience, with a minor in psychology, Pre-PA student hoping to shadow a PA in any specialty! I am willing to travel to any part in South Florida. My email is mtejo2016@fau.edu
  2. Hello everyone, I am currently in my third year as a biology undergraduate major at the City College of New York. I graduate next year and wanted to ask for opinions on whether or not I should apply to PA programs immediately after graduation. At the moment I have a 3.91 GPA, straight As in my science courses, have shadowed one PA for a few hours, and have over 200 hours volunteering at an ENT hospital. However, my plan after graduation is to work as an EMT to gain credible health care experience to put on my application. In your opinions, are my current credentials sufficient enough for PA programs to consider me as a serious candidate? Or should I take a gap year to focus on obtaining more experience to put on my application? If so, any advice or recommendations? Any responses are much appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Hello everyone! I am currently looking for PA's practicing in the Chicago Land Area! I would love the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the profession! Please reach out if you know of anyone willing to take on a student :) Thank you for your time!
  4. 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?
  5. Hello All, I hope you are doing well. I was just curious if anyone has run into the same issue with shadowing that i am in currently. So, unfortunately I dont have the connections to other PAs like some people do, so this leads to having to go above and beyond to try to find PAs to shadow. I finally found one that is willing to take me on that doesn't currently have PA students with them (I go to Gannon University and I live close to Mercyhurst University, which both have PA programs), however, they want me to pay $50 per shadowing visit. I have never heard of anything like this before. Is this normal to pay $50/per shadow experience? Or is this just a UPMC thing. Is it worth it? Or should i keep trying to find other facilities that dont require such. - Zach

  8. I’m a 3rd year pre-pa student at Oakland University needing shadowing hours!! I’ve reached out to about 7 PAs with no luck . If a PA near Detroit could help me out, I would be so grateful!
  9. Hello, I am moving to Vegas from Reno at the end of January and I am looking for shadowing Opportunities in the Las Vegas area. Thanks!
  10. Hello! I know this is a reach, swimming in a sea of several other posts desperate for experience shadowing a PA. I'm just another in Saint Petersburg, Florida looking to spend time with one for a week or two to solidify my career goals (though I'm sure medicine is my calling!). Please respond to this post if you wouldn't mind a 22 year old college student following you around! Thanks so much in advance!
  11. 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

  13. Hello there! My name is Evelyn Uttikur and I am currently a pre-PA student that resides in Queens. I have volunteered at a local hospital, however, I would greatly appreciate if there are any PAs that are willing to let me shadow them and to impart any advice or wisdom necessary. Please email me at evelynuttikur@gmail.com when you get the chance. Thank you!
  14. I am a pre-pa student looking for any shadowing opportunities in Las Vegas! Any field/specialization is good, I have some experience shadowing medical students in a family clinic, but that's it as far as shadowing goes. My schedule is flexible and I'll do my best to accommodate to your time/availability.
  15. I'm having a hard time finding PAs to shadow, I was only able to one so far. I'm a Bio B.S grad of UAlbany and currently work as a PCT at Albany Med. I have tried both AMC and SPH but no luck. I have called a lot of clinics not affiliated with AMC or SPH too. (AMC called me back and told me to stop cold calling their clinics ? and no luck with SPH) and they have either given me the run around or told me "no" due to HIIPPA or that their PAs don't want the extra responsibility of a shadow. Does anyone one know a PA in the area. It seems that the only way to convince a PA for shadow is to have some connections. Cold calling is not working. I would really appreciate any advice!! Feel free to DM me.
  16. I'm looking to shadow a PA in Northeast Ohio that would be willing to also write me a recommendation afterwards. I'm feeling like I'm between a rock and a hard place because my CAPSA is verified, but I have been having the hardest time with this requirement. I applied to shadow through the local hospital and have not gotten a response and they don't allow you to reach out to the PAs personally. I know what a PA does, i've been seeing PAs since I was 15. This is just the technicality I need to complete. Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance
  17. Hello! Im a pre-PA student in North Carolina. Does anyone know of any PA shadowing opportunities in the Charlotte area? Thank you!
  18. Hello, I am a student doing my bachelor's and was wondering if there are any PA in Long Island -preferably in Northwell or Winthrop hospital - that are willing to take a shadow on. I am trying to get my shadowing hours complete before starting CASPA. Thank You!
  19. Hi everyone! I submitted my CASPA in the middle of may and it was verified around may 20th I believe, but in the past few weeks after submitting I was able to successfully get in contact with multiple PAs and begin shadowing them. I already updated my CASPA once to reflect my first shadowing position, but now I have started shadowing another PA and I want to add that to my CASPA experiences as well. Will it look bad to schools that I am updating my application so often or will it make any difference? I just dont want it to come off as looking bad on their end but I want to add in my experiences to show what I have been doing. Thanks so much!
  20. Hello everyone! My name is Phil and I plan on becoming a PA. I was looking for an opportunity to shadow a PA in New Jersey. I am willing to travel if need be. Phil
  21. Hi guys!I graduated in 2017 and on my track to dental school. I actually applied to dental school that year but got rejected to all because I took my DAT too late. However, later tht year I decided that dentistry isn't for me, plus I'm not ready to take on a huge debt afterwards (300-500k sounds scary too me). So i'm changing my goal towards PA. I started researching PA programs and most of them accept my dental assistant hours as PCE. I have around 400-500 hours so i'm planning to finish my prereq (anat, physio, micro) by the end of this fall. Then do either CNA or phlembotomist programs and work for 1 year and a half to collect hours. I'm aiming at 2000-3000 hours. Do you guys think this is a good plan? Or do people generally have way more hours than this?I'm also concerned about why PA schools actually accept dental assistant hours? I know DA have patient interactions but aren't those more towards dental school? Won't they question why am I even applying to PA schoool? If i use those hours, will they ask why not dentistry? I mean i think it's probably gonna come up during the interview anyways. But will it look bad to have DA hours?Also, most programs require one letter from a clinician. I 'm still looking for a doctor, PA, or NP to shadow. I'm puttin NP on my list since PA and NP are so similar. I'm wondering if it's necessary to shadow a PA? I know some programs said it's 'recommended' but would it be ok if i shadow NP (i'm planning to ask my NP if I could shadow her). I'm also wondering about LOR. Since most schools want LOR from any clinician, would it be okay if I actually use my dentist's LOR tht I used to apply to dental school?? I'm not sure if it will look bad for PA schools but im actually really close to my dentist since I worked and shadowed him for almost 2 years. and I outlined my own LOR for him to edit so i know it's a strong LOR too lolAlso, how wuld the schools confirmed that our hour are accurate? Will the schools need our clinicians to sign somethng? I don't have such form from my dentist or the physicians I shadowed back 4 years ago Sorry, I'm still new to PA field and still doing research about it. So if some of my questions are too easy to answer, I apologize in advance!! Thank you again for helping me out!
  22. Hi everyone! I am currently entering in my experiences on CASPA and I was wondering what to do about my shadowing hours. I have shadowed a physician at a hospital for about 60 hours now and certain days I would get to help with checking reflexes, eye or nose examinations and helping patients get adjusted in bed or before procedures. I was wondering if I would be able to count these as healthcare or patient care experiences even though they were done while shadowing a doctor? Should I split the time up between the two? Thanks so much!
  23. My name is Talia and I plan to be a PA. Right now I am a sophomore in HS and I have great grades and will be looking for programs next year. I'd like to have my first shaowing experience, so I am open to specialty. I just need a break. I am available all hours over the summer and after school in the fall. Thanks!
  24. Hi everyone, I am looking for the opportunity to shadow a PA in Boston. There is only one very competitive shadowing program here so I was wondering if there are any PAs that would personally want a shadow-ee :) Thank you!
  25. Hello all! I'm a recent CU Denver graduate and a first-generation student. I'm applying to PA school this year, but I'm having a little trouble finding PA's to shadow . I'd love to gain more exposure to sports med, emergency med, ortho, surgery, psych, or primary care, but I'd also be more than happy to shadow under any other setting. If there are any PA shadowing opportunities out there, then please let me know! Thanks!
