Earlier this year I attended a PA school virtual fair in which multiple people said you want to be as descriptive as possible in your "experiences" tab on CASPA. I have worked several CNA jobs with different companies, but the job and work I did was basically the same. I'm looking for some advice... should I be redundant so I don't leave anything out in the work I did or should I try and pick out things that are more specific to each job? For example I worked in two nursing homes as a CNA and then as a traveling CNA with 2 agencies at the same time. Anyone able to give any feedback? I feel as if copying and pasting my job descriptions wouldn't look very good.
Hi my name is Ahmed Rehman and Im a college student that attends Suffolk Community College. Im here to ask if there is any Physician Assistants around my area that are willing to allow me to shadow them. I was really interested in this career path since at a young age and I would love to shadow during the summer. I live around in East Patchogue and Brookhaven. Thank you.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 603-318-5640. Thank you so much for your consideration—I look forward to hearing back from you.
My name is Tessa and I am currently an MA at a dermatology clinic. I am aspiring to be a PA and will be applying during the next cycle. I have worked along side PAs for about 2 years now in dermatology and have experience working in a level 1 ED. However, I am looking for any PA shadow opportunity in Arizona that is not dermatology as I want to branch out and have an understanding of what PAs do in different fields. I live in Glendale but I am willing to travel anywhere in Arizona.
If you are a PA or know a PA or any open opportunities feel free to reach out to me on here.
I am currently an undergraduate and I am looking to apply next cycle 2020-2021. I have a list of schools I want to apply to that have pretty late application dates so I could get in as many health care hours as possible before application. I am planning to have ~1000 hours by application and ~2000 prior to matriculation. My GPA and GRE are very high. I have volunteer, leadership, shadowing, and research experience. My question is for schools that do not have a 1000+ hour requirement would it be more beneficial to apply a few months earlier or to wait until I hit the 1000 hour benchmark. Will it make much of a difference? Is it better to apply early because of rolling decisions or try to get as many hours before application?
