Emergency Medicine PA Shadowing Opportunity - Houston, TX

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. Thanks!

Check out scribing if you can.  It is not much time commitment per week and gives you excellent exposure to PA's, NP's, MD's, DO's, and RN's in an emergency setting.  I work for ScribeAmerica.
