Shadow Opportunity in Raleigh Durham Area

Recommended Posts

I am looking to shadow in the Raleigh Durham area ; been trying to send messages via linkedIn to multiple places, but to no avail. Does anyone on here know someone who is accepting pre-pa shadowing? Being a PT I would love to follow someone in Ortho or Pain Management, but I am happy to shadow any specialty ; there is something to learn in all settings!

Hi! I am also looking for PAs to shadow in the area. I have a couple lined up eventually, but haven’t set a date yet since they’re so busy. If you’re looking for orthopedics, I would try places like EmergeOrtho or Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic. I know they have a lot of PAs. The difficulty is finding a PA that will allow you to shadow them. I had this issue of trying to find someone because EmergeOrtho requires you to have prior communication with a PA before they allow observation - they won’t set it up for you or anything. Just a thought! Duke’s PA program also helps pre-PA applicants find shadowing opportunities within Duke. I would reach out to them as well!

On another note, why did you decide to go back to school for PA when you are a PT? Just want your opinion because for the longest time I thought I wanted to do PT. Now, I feel stronger about PA, but sometimes have the wonder if I’m making the right decision? 

Good luck!

      Didn't see a thread for the current application cycle. Please post link if there is already a topic. 
      I got an email on July 6th that my application has been received and was given an application status link. Has anyone gotten an interview?

      Recent applicant accepted to multiple NC schools. Wondering if it is worthwhile to attend some of the private, high-ranked schools or if it makes more sense to favor in-state tuition, especially with sights set on primary care? 
      Schools I applied to: Duke, Wake, Campbell, UNC, ECU
      Would appreciate insight into any of the above programs, and whether the private schools really do give you a leg up!
      Thank you!

      I know it is early in the cycle, but I figured I would start a thread! Who else is applying? I am hoping to submit by end of next week!

      Hello all! As the cycle is set to begin on the 27th I thought I would make a thread for this years cycle!
