Hi I'm a undergrade pre pa student. I have one semester where ill be pretty much finishing up my last credits before graduation. Can someone recommend a pharmacology book that can get me mentally prepared for what to come ? Or simply any books that you think will get a pre pa student prepared in general.
I was wondering if anyone accepted into any PA program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Also, if you could put the schools you were accepted into/chose to go that would be great! Also, if there is a recent thread with accepted students stats you're more than welcome to send me or comment the link. Thanks so much!
For those of us with a bit of downtime or waiting to matriculate, what are some excellent podcasts to help get those brain juices flowing!? Please share podcast recommendations pertaining to any PA school related material, clinical, or specialty knowledge in particular.
I'll generally nerd out on The Wilderness and Environmental Medicine Live and Emergency Med Cases podcasts (even though a lot of this material will eventually be outside our scope, it's still fun to learn about) in addition to a few others non-PA related.
I am hoping that someone will be able to point me in the direction of some hospitals or private practices that have preceptors who are willing to take PA students in the scottsdale, mesa, Glendale, chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Phoenix area of Arizona. I am currently a first year PA student at Hofstra university in New York and we are getting ready for rotations this year. For my program, we are allowed to do two rotations out of state so I hoping to go to Arizona. However, we are responsible for finding the preceptor and giving the information to Hofstra.
I will be staying in Scottsdale but I am willing to drive!!
Any information will be helpful as I am not really sure where to begin looking or who to contact.
Thank you SO much in advance!!!
