Congrats to everyone getting accepted!! I talked to the admissions person about a week ago and she said they just had done another review on next interview candidates (March 5th and March 7th interview) and she said I would hear back from her in 1-2 weeks at the latest. This week would be 2 so I’m hoping we hear something soon!! 😊

For those who have been accepted, is there a Facebook group/page where everyone can join to get to connect with fellow classmates?! 

Also, those who got accepted, how soon did you receive your admissions packet?

The only admissions packet type thing I received was included with the acceptance email. It basically had housing and loan information. I think as the start date gets closer we will get more information on everything.

Hi all,

For those accepted, would you mind sharing academic background and clinical experience. I'm trying to get a feel for what they are looking for.

 

Thanks!

I have over 3,000 of healthcare experience as a endoscopy/surgical tech, medical assistant in detox/mental health, and tech in the ICU and neuro floors. 3.4 GPAs. A ton of volunteer and leadership hours (idk the exact amount), and a Bachelors in Food, Nutrition and Dietetics

I realized after I made the page that it’s supposed to be a closed group instead ... so I guess I should delete it lol. Someone mentioned that a staff member was going to create a group for us, maybe once more interviews are finished?

Out of curiosity, how do people feel about them not having a cadaver lab?

I wish they did, but we should still be fine without it. I'm sure they will have some sort of high-tech digital cadaver computer instead? Maybe we could also see if there are any other labs that rent out cadaver labs for like a week or so in tampa. I know UT PA program will be using one in tampa somewhere. Maybe we could get in there too if they don't have an exclusive contract or something?? not sure...

My mistake. It looks like the FIVE bioskills lab in tampa is just used as a surgical learning simulation??? not sure.

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.

      Hi!
      I'm new to this forum and desperately need the help of people who has knowledge of what it takes to become a PA! I'm a current undergrad student, a sophomore majoring in Global Public Health with a possible minor in Biology. I'm on the road to obtaining all my prerequisites, but I'm really struggling with the patient care experience hours needed. Most schools I'm viewing need 1,000 plus hours which seems insane to me. I feel like most of the jobs acceptable for direct patient care contact are things that need even more schooling, such as an MA or EMT. I've applied many places to become a Medical Scribe, or PT Aide but haven't heard back. Am I doomed to take a gap year after I get my bachelor's? I don't know how to get the needed experience without prior experience. I wrote on all my applications I'm open to complete volunteer work but still nothing. 
      Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      I'm looking into PA school requirements and have seen that most require Human Anatomy & lab, and Human Physiology & lab. My current university (UCSD) only offers a Human Physiology lecture course. Most of the city colleges I'm looking into in order to fulfill this pre-req only offer Human Anatomy or Human Physiology as a single course of lecture and lab, rather than having separate lecture and lab courses. Do PA schools accept lecture & lab combination courses or do they want each lecture and lab to be a separate course?
