  1. I feel like it is not a wise thing to do. However, the city I am moving two only has about two main hospitals so all of the job openings on indeed come from the same place. I am open to different specialties, and I would like to apply to multiple fields. Is it wrong to apply to different specialties in the same hospital? And one more question: is it wrong to apply to jobs that say "no new grads"? Probably unlikely to actually get the job but I don't know if this hurts or not. Thank you!
  2. I am now a proud member of Northern Arizona University's PA Class of 2019. I have approximately 8 months before school starts. For those people who are just getting accepted or those already in school or through it, what do I do between now and august? I have been told to relax and not do any studying. Others have told me to start brushing up on my anatomy? What is the best way to spend my time? I don't want to get to school and kick myself for not spending the time I have the best way possible. Any advice would be great. Fyi I work full time. This is specifically what to do in my free time.
  3. Hi everyone, This is my first time in the forums. I would really like to gain a feeling if I am on the right track towards applying for my top choice PA programs. I am currently a senior and I plan on taking a gap year to hopefully gain more HCE and shadowing opportunities. I will have 1000 hrs working as a CNA by the time I graduate, but I still want to take a gap year to mature myself in the healthcare field. I plan on taking the GRE most likely after graduating. I want to give myself a lot of time to prepare for it and to hopefully take it once with a stellar score. Below are some information I anticipate including in my applications by time I apply. I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions in how to strengthen myself as an applicant. Undergraduate Institution: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill B.S. Biology and Minor in Chemistry cGPA: 3.66 sGPA: 3.56 Most recent 60 credit hours cGPA: 3.97 (anticipated; I had a huge jump in GPA during my last two years of college) Age: 23 (by the time I apply) GRE: Not completed (but hopefully I'll earn a high score with a lot of preparation) Healthcare Experience: ~2800 hrs as a CNA (anticipated by the time I apply) Shadowing: I plan to do about 50 hrs (suggestions?) Research Experience: 2.5 yrs of research working with plants and their interactions with various soil microbes (Not sure if this really helps) Volunteer Experience: 200 hours Hospital volunteer at high school (not sure to whether I should include this??) 200 hours Hospital volunteer during college 500 hours volunteering at a soup kitchen (anticipated by the time I apply) various one-time commitment volunteer opportunities that organizations I am affiliated with have done together Common Prerequisite Course Grades: Gen Chem I: A Gen CHem II: B- (lab: B+) Orgo 1: B+ Orgo 2: B (lab: A) Biochemistry (with lab): A Microbiology (with lab): A- Anatomy and Physiology I (with lab): A Anatomy and Physiology II (with lab): A Statistics: A General Psychology: A Genetics: C (Taken freshmen year. I've taken a higher level genetics course and got an A on it. I'm not sure how much that would help) Medical Terminology: A (Anticipated) Programs I plan on applying to: Duke Yale Cornell UNC Campbell Wake Forest UC Davis Boston University Tufts I know I included a good number of top programs, but I still want to try and work hard to see if I can make it. I will probably add a few more that are closer to my reach.
  4. Hi folks, I am new to this forum. I am in my first year of college and I recently started a job as a CNA at a hospital on the orthopedic floor. I have been shadowing a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and his colleague, a PA, regularly since I started school. Anybody have any suggestions on what else to do this early on to "fluff" my application? Anything will help! Thanks!
  5. Hi there! I am planning to reapply to PA schools for the third time now for the 2014-2015 cycle. First time I applied, I got one interview and unfortunately didn't get in. Second time I applied very late in the application cycle and didn't get any interviews. I have a B.S. in Biology from a CUNY, Science GPA of 2.98 (which sucks because many schools want 3.0 and higher), overall GPA 3.25 (after CASPA calculations). I have taken all of the pre requisites for the program. Planning to take a GRE since that increases the number of schools I can apply to. I do have an "F" on my transcript and I did retake the course and ended up with a "B-". I got an "A" in Anatomy and a "B-" in Physiology in college so I thought taking an A&P course at a local college in CA will help me boost my GPA. I got a "B" and that didn't really help. I have about 2 years of experience of working as a physical therapy aide in NY, ICU/PACU nurse duty volunteer (6 months) plus shadowing an orthopedic PA for 4 months also in NY. I have recently moved to CA and have been working as a surgical scheduler/back office assistant at a surgical practice for the past year. I volunteer at a local soup kitchen as an assistant to the cook/food server. Recently found a PA to shadow in the Bay Area. I really want to become a PA and need to figure out ways to better myself as an applicant. Please help! If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate your advice!
  6. Hello there, I just graduated last week with a BS in biology. Through the last couple years, I had no idea what I really wanted to do, and all though now that I've come to realize being a PA is my calling, my gpa is no where where it needs to be. My cumulative gpa is a 2.58. I have a majority of C's and B's on my transcript with a handful of D's. My initial plan was to retake courses at a community college to boost my GPA but then I saw through this forum that maybe a post-bac is a better option? I really have no idea on what my next move should be. Any advice? I know it will take a few years to get where I need to be, and in the mean time, what kind of work experience would be beneficial? Working as a scribe maybe? Ive been so upset about figuring out what to do, that I've even considered starting over as an undergrad if trying to bring up my gpa will take just as long. Any and all advice and suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you so much
  7. Hi there, I graduated with a degree in Biology, but really didn't know what i wanted to do with it while i was in school, and as a result, i did not receive the best grades. I got a cumulative 2.56, but I have a 3.2 in my prerequisite classes, and a better cumulative over my last 4 semesters, but still not great, 2 C's and mostly B's. That being said, PA school is my dream. It's something i really want to do. I recently obtained my EMT-b and want to start working, I have some HCE but not a lot, yet. I was just hoping to get some input on how to address my low GPA. What types of classes I can take, and where, to increase my GPA? I am also very highly considering going to Paramedic school for my EMT-P. Any suggestions? Am I screwed by my old grades from when i had no idea what i was doing? Should I try and go to nursing school or RT or something over Paramedic? Would that make a difference? Thanks anyone for input, I feel like I am in quite a bind, and would really appreciate input or suggestions.
  8. Hi all, I am just looking for some suggestions for ways that I can strengthen my application for reapplying next cycle. I applied to three schools this cycle (all pretty local) and received zero interviews. I know I need to apply more broadly and earlier next cycle. I also think I need to add some more volunteer hours, as many of mine were from when I was an undergrad (about two years ago). Any suggestions for where to volunteer? Any other ideas or tips on how I can strengthen other areas would be greatly appreciated! GPA: 3.59 (B.S. in Biology) Science GPA: 3.54 GRE: 159 verbal, 153 quantitative, 3.5 analytical HCE: 2500 hrs hospital phlebotomist (it's roughly 3000 now) Shadowing: 15 hours, Oncology PA LOR's: An undergrad professor, my current phlebotomy supervisor, and a past co-worker/friend I worked with in high school/early college I thought my personal statement was strong, I had a couple of current PA's read over it, including one who had been involved with admissions at another school. I'll admit that I think my supplemental essays may have been lacking. I was burnt out and distracted, and I think I could have done better. Any other questions, let me know. Thank you!
  9. Hello PA's and aspiring PA's, I have been working on my personal narrative off and on for the past month and would like to get some advice from anyone who has already submitted their application to CASPA. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Here is what I have so far: After having struggled with seasonal allergies for years, it seemed as though they were only getting worse every year. I was fortunate enough to find a primary care physician who also specialized in allergies and immunology. My physician suggested that I undergo allergen immunotherapy once a week for the next few years. Not long after beginning immunotherapy, I experienced a severe anaphylactic reaction to one of the injections. I had never been the subject of a medical emergency before that moment as my throat and chest began to tighten up and my eyes swelling shut. The first person to recognize what was happening was my doctor’s physician assistant, Herb, who immediately gave me an epinephrine injection, some Benadryl and checked my vitals every 5-10 minutes. Subsequently, Herb began handling my immunotherapy injections and demonstrating his concern for my well-being by performing more extensive tests on me to determine what allergens were affecting me the most and changing the dosage in my injections to prevent any future anaphylactic reactions. It was not long before I began requesting to see him for general medical consultations as well. For more than a year, I thought Herb was actually a doctor whom everyone in the office addressed by his first name. When he had explained to me that he was not a doctor and what his role in the medical field was, I was surprised at how similar his role was to that of a doctor. The thought of becoming a PA like Herb really intrigued me as I had been working in sales for nearly four years and was feeling like something was missing. I had a desire to get out from behind a desk and resume working with people in a more altruistic way as I am compassionate when it comes to taking care of people. Becoming a doctor had always crossed my mind, but once I had learned more about the role of a physician assistant, I found the versatility they have in healthcare more appealing. My capability and zeal for treating those who need medical assistance was more important to me than attaining the title or credentials of a doctor, or working within one specific field of medicine. I had already gained some valuable medical knowledge as a teen helping take care of my late maternal grandmother who suffered from diabetes, pulmonary fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis. For a little more than two years, I assisted with monitoring her blood glucose levels, giving insulin shots, organizing her medications and transferring her from hospital bed to wheelchair via a hoist. To attest whether the desire and necessary compassion that it takes was still there, I began shadowing a couple doctors. My fervor for working with patients increased as I became exposed to different fields of medicine. I was fortunate enough to shadow a general internist in a hospital and a plastic surgeon who allowed me to (minimally) assist him during patient consultations and post-op visits. After a few months of shadowing, I wasted no time and earned certifications as a phlebotomy and EKG technician to get actual hands-on experience. When I became a medical assistant for a vascular surgeon, it was such a rush scrubbing up and assisting with outpatient surgical procedures from endovenous laser treatment to AV fistulas. As I had imagined, my compassion for tending to people in need of medical assistance was not limited to just a family member. Often when seeing a patient I think of how my own PA saved my life and has become a catalyst in my pursuit to one day be like him. After completing PA school, my intention is to go into family practice and to perform at least one medical mission ever year.
  10. Hi, everyone I am not sure where to place this question in discussion. I am considering to apply to a surgical technologist program to gain some HCE and was wondering what should I expect as a student and went I get certified? (FYI the program is accredited). Can you stay busy? Can you make decent money? Would you suggest working with a recruiter or perhaps directly with a surgeon or a hospital/clinic? What are the classes like? I will be taking this program at a local CC. Should I keep a procedure notebook? (I have read some should do this to remember what exactly the surgeon likes or does not like. I want to see what other people have found useful/useless in this type of career. How can I prepare myself before class starts (or should I)? Can you share any websites/links? Anything and everything you can tell me about being a surg tech would be appreciated.

  11. Who has heard back/confirmed? I was very impressed by the program, and will be starting next July!
  12. Post deleted at the request of the author MrBob (Bet you all are surprised to see me) LOL
  13. TO THE ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY AT CHATHAM PA PROGRAM. I want to say in clearly stated terms that i don't wish BAD for Chatham University as i have graduated from there but i wish a spade was called a spade. I want to be proud of my School but unfortunately i have no reason to be, even though i have no relationship to it (Thankfully) The administration and faculty should feel the gravity of the situation and shock themselves out of denial that its gonna be fine. Firstly stop saying its a great PA school which it is not. Second take the feedback from the students anonymously, especially the ones who got kicked out for personal reasons, you should also contact all the persons who have graduated and ask them about the quality of the education they get and the amount of money they pay. Get a proactive faculty who are willing to work with the students in real not via email. Get a faculty that can be approached and does not have firewalls around them except for a favorite few. Stop harassing students and threatening them with UNPROFESSIONAL behavior. Work with the students and tend to the problems at hand rather than shove them into the email box. Switch over to a didactic theme, PBL is passe, its only a few in the nation that do it. THIS MEANS GETTING A FACULTY WHICH IS ACTIVE AND SLICK. NOT LAZY PEOPLE WHO ONLY EMAIL AND THREATEN YOU. UPDATE the curriculum and stop recycling. Get a faculty who are clinically active. This program needs a major rehaul, and if there is just a paintjob this time, it will crumble and vanish for ever. UNFORTUNATELY FROM what i heard the only person who could make a difference in the program has already resigned, perhaps she saw that the bubble has burst and its time to go. I want the Faculty and administration to know that facts are facts, word travels fast and this is the age of SOCIAL NETWORKING, bring out the letter in open and see what inputs you get from the students, i am sure they will be much better than what the faculty has to offer. The Honorable Deans should make a proper enquiry as to why this fiasco happened, if the faculty was always painting a rosy picture. I dont think it happened overnight or with one batch of students. The rot must have started long before. I hope transformation and changes happen for the better at Chatham and it can be a better program than it is now, i mean far more better.
