Good afternoon y'all and Happy New Year! My name is Austin and I am 27 years old. I am a firefighter/paramedic in Texas. I have always been interested in healthcare and helping people, so I thought a good start would be to acquire my EMT certification, and immediately became hooked. So I got hired on with a fire department and obtained my paramedic certification. But I want to continue to expand in the medical field and emergency medicine. I have about 3 years in EMS experience. The only real college experience I have is with my EMT, pre-requisite A&P, and Paramedic. So I know I am probably not off to a good start there and might be getting ahead of myself. But I am very eager to begin on the path to accomplish becoming a PA. So my question is, what exactly are the pre-requisites to becoming a PA? This portion of education and schooling, I am not familiar with at all. I don't really know where to begin. So any help would be greatly appreciated and I would love to talk with you about any advice and guidance you can offer! Thank you again and I hope you all have a fantastic 2020!
Hi, just to give some background, I am a 22 y/o make and a senior at the university of Tennessee @ Knoxville majoring in history and minoring in chemistry. I was originally set on going the MD route until I was recently introduced to the inner workings of the PA career and am now very interested. I am looking for any advice on how to improve my resume as well as schools which I fit the criteria for. I am interested in the northeastern portion of the US as well as Chicago but am open to recommendation. Thank you in advance to any advice

I am in my on my Didactic year in University of Washington and I am looking clinical rotations at Texas! Here are some good rotations too, my campus is in Alaska . I need to look some opportunities because my husband lives in Austin, Texas, but I dont have any MD contacts there. Any suggestion.
Can anyone who has been recently licensed by TMB give any input on the time frame? I was assigned a license analyst beginning of October, havent received any updates and it’s now the end of December. I’ve called TMB many times and they said to contact the analyst for updates but haven’t heard back from her either.
