Shadowing in San Diego or OC/LA area on short notice??

Recommended Posts

I was told by USC that they would invite me for an interview -- IF and only if I am able to cram in some PA shadowing ASAP. Early January, I was thinking. This would be incredibly helpful and it'd mean a lot to me, as USC was the only school in my home state that I applied to.

 

I've volunteered before (Santa Monica-UCLA hospital, as a CareExtender), but that was a while back in 2005-2007. Any help or leads would be so very appreciated. Thank you!!

Thank you, Bryan! I was not able to find a PA in CA, but I was able to find one in Austin while on vacation there, thanks to my brother's contacts. The website looks like a great resource, for anyone who's still in need!

Glad it all worked out for you. Would you mind sharing the contact for the PA you shadowed in Austin? I have at least three students looking for a PA in Austin and I'm having such a hard time finding someone in Austin who will take. I understand if you don't want to post here, but you can go to the website and at the bottom is a "contact us" email link and that's mine. If you can share that information I will guarantee a shadowing opportunity if you are ever in SoCal again and want to shadow a PA. I'm in Neurosurgery and promise I will let you shadow me anytime - even take you in to observe surgery if you want. I also have a PA colleague in Orange County that I could set you up with as well. Thank you.

      I am applying for 2021-22 cycle. I graduated recently and don't have any formal work experience. I am tired of applying to jobs, cold-calling clinics and hospitals for jobs. I even offered to work for free. I am licensed (EKG, and phleb) then also I am getting rejected. Nobody wants to hire anymore, they don't even need free services. I am a person of color, I hope that is not the reason.

      Hi All,
      I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? 
      I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard.
      Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places:
      Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT, ME, and/or MA
      Thank you in advance!!

      Hello, I am Chase Bernardy, a current 3rd Year at CSUSB - Cal State San Bernardino as Kinesiology Allied Health Major with a minor in Biology and overall GPA of 3.7. I am in desperate need to shadow in order to graduate on time. I work as an EMT and Phlebotomist, and am taking more medical classes this summer. Any help would be appreciated, I understand the difficulty with COVID, but I am not afraid of the task. Have a good day!

      Hey everyone! While working as a Medical Assistant, I shadowed a PA at the same clinic. Is this seen as okay? There are three clinics in total so I didn't shadow everyday with him.

      I’m applying this cycle and I’ve been trying to find any shadowing opportunities in NYC but it’s difficult during this pandemic. If anyone has any leads please LMK. Thank you!
