lrgogl1 Posted February 2, 2012 Author Share Posted February 2, 2012 I've been browsing several forum threads, including the statistic ones regarding applications. I am getting slightly concerned because I don't have any accumulated health care experience, direct nor indirect, and I was curious to know if there have been cases where "direct care experience" didn't really matter with applications? For instance, if someone worked as an ER intake representative (which would probably be more along the lines of indirect,) do you think working in that position along with shadowing, could get someone into PA school? I understand there are a lot of factors into committee choices. I am just trying to gauge some jobs which I consider appropriate to apply to. I am not really big into the certification positions since I need to accumulate time in a very fast and efficient way if I want to make it for this application cycle. And yes, I am aware of the search bar and the fact that PA is generally a secondary profession for many people. Not all of us want to travel the same traditional route though, so please keep that in mind. Also if anyone has ever worked as an ER intake representative, I'd appreciate knowing if you actually had time for any patient care duties, even if only minuscule ones.
