Shadowing in Denver/Boulder/Surrounding Area

Recommended Posts

I am entering my senior year as a Biology major and looking to apply for PA school during the next cycle. I have been having a hard time finding PA's to shadow and am posting here in the hopes of finding somebody. I am able to commute anywhere around the Denver or Boulder area. I work as a CNA, volunteer in an ED and am active in a genetics research lab. I have nearly all of my pre-reqs for PA school but am wanting to shadow a PA before applying during the next cycle. I know that shadowing would be an extremely valuable experience and therefore appreciate any direction on where to look!

      Hi! I’m finishing up my pre-requisites and I’m looking for a shadowing opportunity in the Lehigh Valley, PA. Is anyone aware of any?

      I am working as an MA for a PA currently. Occasionally, I do watch procedures she does, and basically 'shadow' her during my job. Could these times count towards shadowing hours for PA school? Thanks!
