Older student here.
Current Junior in Physiology track, 4.0 GPA. 5+ years working as civilian in clinical psych research for DOD - 2.5 years working with AD 0311s & 3 working with vets in a VA psych Dept.
- is it too early in my college track to be contacting recruiters for info? Interested in Navy PA primarily, open to AF/Army.
- my spouse is active duty, E-8 (EOD) with 5 years remaining. Will being a military spouse/married to enlisted make it unlikely for me to be a competitive candidate?
Thanks in advance for any info.
Hey guys! I'm super excited to start PA school in May 2019! With that being said, I'm curious to know what your favorite books are to prep for the exams/PANCE? Some of the first year PA students I've talked to recommended Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, Blueprints Medicine, and PANCE Prep Pearls. I'm keeping these suggestions on the back burner until PA school starts & if I need some additional information. I would appreciate any other recommendations, thanks!
My name is Rachel and I am an upcoming PA student starting in May 2019 at USF's PA program in Tampa, Fl.
I got my clinical experience first working as an EMT for an ambulance company, but later switching to being a medical assistant for a private practice dermatology experience in Plant City, FL (about 30 min from Tampa). I gained such valuable knowledge from both jobs! I currently still work for the derm practice, but will be leaving when I attend PA school. I just wanted to reach out to the pre-PA community because I'm sure there are a number of you who are looking to get clinical experience, and I wanted to see about giving the opportunity to someone who could gain valuable experience from this position. and FYI you do not need a medical license for this job, they do on the job training. I work here with the doctor as well as the PA.
If you're interested, let me know and I'm happy to answer any questions and put you in contact with my office manager. :)
I know this question gets asked plenty of times within these forums, I just would like to know if I a competitive for this upcoming cycle.
23. Hispanic Male.
Science GPA: 3.2
Respiratory Therapy GPA: 4.0
Volunteer hours: 1000
Letters of recommendation: All which are very strong.
-Two from physicians that I currently work closely with
-A letter from my Director from my respiratory therapy program
-A letter from a science course professor.
I currently have around 1,200 hours working as a respiratory therapist along with about 800 hours working as a medical assistant while I was enrolled within the respiratory therapy program. I would like to attend programs that do not require the GRE in which I researched and found about 80 that do not require the exam. But I am not opposed to studying for it if that will make myself a more competitive applicant.
