Shadowing Hours


Recommended Posts

Eh, it's helpful to shadow both. Solidify's your answer as to why you want to be a PA and not MD. That said, you should certainly shadow PAs for the baseline minimum required by the school. 24 hours should suffice for most. Shadowing is arguably the least important aspect of your application, so don't go too overboard with racking up more hours than you already have.

That’s true, I was just concerned because I have way more doctor shadowing than PA shadowing. Thank you for responding!
