Greetings from Hershey, PA and to all those who have gotten a jump start on the CASPA cycle for 2018-2019.
As the Director of Admissions for the program, I'll be on this thread as much as possible to help answer any questions about the 18-19 cycle or share program updates, as I'm sure some of our alum and current students will also join when they are able.
May is a busy time of year in the program as the 2nd year students graduate, our rising students begin clinical rotations and our incoming class begins...Yes, this all happens in a one week time span in May. We are very proud of our soon-to-be-graduates, excited for the students beginning their clinical rotations, and look forward to welcoming the new students at orientation.
I will do everything I can to provide a detailed and clear understanding of our application process by way of this thread, online information sessions, and email correspondence.
Good luck with your CASPA and Penn State secondary applications.
Director of Admissions
Hello all, I will be graduating from a PA program in western Ohio in about a month. I'm relocating to Pittsburgh after taking boards, and I was hoping for some advice regarding job searching and best places to work. My research has shown that the local job market is pretty saturated and salaries are low, especially through UPMC. I was wondering if anyone familiar with the area has recommendations of outlying towns and hospitals that could provide better job opportunities. I welcome any advice from those of you familiar with the area. Thanks in advance!
