Job finding disadvantages when graduating from an out of state school?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently in the mix between two schools, one being an in state school, and the other being an out of state school. My question is, knowing that I plan to practice in my home state in the future, will graduating from an out of state school put me at a disadvantage when searching for a PA position in my home state? Looking forward to hearing your insight and experiences. Thank you in advance for your replies!

It shouldn't. The biggest issue is networking; it can be easier to do that if you are connected to practices in your area. You can sometimes do rotations back home and get plugged it that way.

In my class in Ohio, we had students from all over the country, many of whom went back home to find jobs. These include students from Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, and North Dakota.

I would recommend that you go to the school that best meets your needs.
