Accepted without direct patient care

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone gotten into the PA program without direct patient experience? Is it possible to be admitted with 200 hours of shadowing/volunteer experience in various settings with a 3.8 GPA and a BS in Biochemistry?

Short answer...yes.

 

Long answer. It will be an uphill battle. Your application will be compared to thousands of individuals with way more than 200 shadowing hours, in addition to paid direct patient care hours, volunteer, community service, and similar GPA.  Why would adcoms choose someone without the total package?
