CALIFORNIA: University of La Verne 2016-2017

Recommended Posts

I emailed Dr Estrada about two weeks ago inquiring any status updates that he could give about the accreditation for the PA Program and I have not received a response yet. :/

I think its too early for them to know since the review is in March.

The University updated the website and put in dates for the 2018 cohort... From what I see there have been no changes to the curriculum... I wonder what went wrong with the review.

Looks like there's an information session scheduled for August 18th. May attend it just to see what information will be covered.

As far as I know, the accreditation issues were minor, and we should remain optimistic for next year. Everything happens for a reason, I'm sure we'll be colleagues next year :)

Don't worry Vk209 will ensure to post any new updates from the info session! ? 

Thanks! I emailed Dr Estrada and was told its not mandatory so I figured I continue working and save some money (we all need it at this point).

Hi guys I don't think I'll be attending since I have to work, but I attended last year and in my opinion the information that is going to be provided is going to be more beneficial to the people who want to apply to the program rather than us since we were already accepted. ?

Found an article that states la Verne met 107 out of the 115 standards during the review... apparently the issues were during the clinical years regarding assessment of students... hopefully they are able to fix the issues!

Can you post the link to the article please? I had heard from a working PA that it was an issue with clinical sites/year as well.

I just registered for the info session but its a little confusing as to which site it is at. The link here says Alhambra campus and the actual registration says La Verne campus, anyone else have this issue? I'm assuming its actually at the La Verne campus?

When I registered it only mentioned the La Verne campus. Same spot as when they did an information seminar in early 2016

 

 

Kinda random, but would anyone else who's going to the info session also be interested in grabbing dinner or something after? We can be each others' therapy group lol. I know a great sushi place in San Dimas which isn't too far, or a really good pizza place not too far from campus!

I guess we shouldn't go to the info session this Wednesday.

I'm down to grab a bite instead!

I signed up for tomorrow's session, confirmed it is at the main campus.  I will be driving about 1.5 hours to attend so can't do dinner after, I have to get home. :)  However, I am intrigued by the comments recently posted:   :/

1. Sbp:  "Receive Laura's email?"   Who is Laura? Maybe the post was deleted?

2. CareL, why are you saying we shouldn't go to the information Session?  Last week I called to confirm it was happening.  Has something changed?

      Thought i'd get this thread started since the deadline is coming up October 1st.  Good luck to all!

      What is the process of creating a clinical site or at least an affiliation with a doctor or organization for one student to do a rotation at? I have been desperately trying to get clinical rotations in CA, my home, while I am currently out of state. I have situational depression and I know that being able to do rotations back at home would help immensely with my focus, happiness, and health, but my school won't budge in helping me. Their reasoning was that it's too much work for them to make affiliations with new sites. I have found doctors willing to take me in for rotations though, so the only thing left would be the paperwork which I thought was in large part filled out by the preceptor. Does anyone know anything about this, and if so, could you please help me understand?
