I am looking for PA's to shadow in the San Jose area, but I am willing to travel further for shadowing. I am a pre-PA student entering my 4th year as an undergraduate at UCLA, pursuing a degree in Biology. I am currently a volunteer at my university hospital's child life department and I also volunteer with an organization that provides healthcare services to the underserved community. I also worked with geriatric patients in a program that paired patients with students. I would be interested in shadowing PA's of any specialty. Please send me a private message if you are willing to let me shadow!
I just joined this forum in hopes to learn more about the PA profession as well as find a PA to shadow. I'm currently working as an Operations Program Manager for a Technology company and my background is Mechanical Engineering. I've worked in the industry for about 11 years and now i'm ready for a career change. I want to go into the health care industry and more specifically pursue a career as a Physicians Assistant. I would really appreciate your time and help. I looked around the forum and it doesn't look like there are any PAs from the SF Bay area. I hope i'm wrong.
I'm looking to shadow a PA somewhere in northern California if possible. I'm currently an undergrad and would like to have more insight and shadow a PA if possible to see how they operate and work day to day.
So far I've had a really hard time finding a place. I've called many clinics, but the area I live in doesn't have many clinics that I know of and internet searches aren't really helpful because they don't have a list of employees.
And a lot of my "cold calls" are turning up empty. Not sure if places are afraid of the liability/HIPPA?
I'm currently going to school in Stockton at UOP but will be back home in San Jose/Bay Area for the summer. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks guys!
