I am having a heard time comparing two colleges that I interviewed with here in New York City. Suny Downstate and CUNY york college. SUNY Downstate was put on probation this year- accreditation status will be reviewed again in Sept 2021. I have heard from past students that this program is disorganized and lacks certain resources and that the not passing was not surprising ( my interview was also very disorganized and borderline unprofessional). I have also heard that even if they lose accreditation while I am a student that I will still be able to sit for the PANCE... Hopefully this is true. But despite these facts, I have been wide-eyed for this school for some time, the campus, the hospitals they have access too and the large groups of medical programs this school has- I realllly like. On the other hand, York college which is simialr distance from my house, has similar PANCE rates and tuition as SUNY and is not on probation but the campus seems rundown, small, not in a safe area, no cadaver lab and I just don't have enough information to make it a quick- YES for me or a solid no either. If anyone has graduated from these programs recently (2018- on) has any input, it would be gladly appreciated or if you are also interviewing and have done your research on these schools and have input as well- I would really appreciate it. Looking for bias and nonbias input! Thanks!
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.
New grad currently negotiating part-time PA position in Family Practice. I've done clinical rotations and scribed at a Family Practice office in NYC and will be working part-time until I start a Residency program in the fall. Trying to figure out what I should expect in a part-time contract if anything in terms of benefits, PTO, CME, etc. Also, trying to discern if it is in my best interest to be a part-time employee or 1099.
Thanks in advance!
