Hello everyone, question for pre-PA, current students, or graduates. For volunteer hours and non-healthcare employment hours for some schools, I was wondering how to go about recording and documenting them? What is the best way to go about this. Especially for the non healthcare hours, I imagine this is just any job we’ve had in the past. And so what do you guys recommend in terms of going back to see the hours we’ve completed and also going forward with future hours, and how to keep track of them all. Really, for any experience hours in general. Also, I believe we will submit this information on the CASPA, so how does that work? Do we just put the organization, hours, and description? Or do we need some sort of sign off on it , with someone higher up proving that we did it? Let me know , thank you guys!!
I am currently in the process of my first application cycle and would love to connect with current Oklahoma P.A.'s for advice/shadowing opportunities and any Oklahoma Pre-P.A. students that are going through this journey as well!
Hello, I am currently a Pre-PA student in the Denver, Colorado area applying this cycle and am currently looking for a PA in any speciality to shadow during the month of July at some point. I have received the COVID vaccination series. Please reply or reach out if you are available! Thanks so much!
I'm having a hard time finding PAs to shadow, I was only able to one so far. Currently work as a PCT at Albany Med. I have tried both AMC and SPH but no luck. I have called a lot of clinics not affiliated with AMC or SPH too. (AMC called me back and told me to stop cold calling their clinics ? and no luck with SPH) and they have either given me the run around or told me "no" due to HIIPPA or that their PAs don't want the extra responsibility of a shadow.
Does anyone one know a PA in the area. It seems that the only way to convince a PA for shadow is to have some connections. Cold calling is not working.
I would really appreciate any advice!! Feel free to DM me.
I am currently residing in Bellingham Washington. I am eager to get some shadowing experience prior to applying to PA school this year. I have received both covid vaccines, and would love to shadow in person. Please let me know if you have any ideas. I have reached out to several PAs in the area and have yet to hear back from anyone.
