cmt2013 Posted June 7, 2012 Author Share Posted June 7, 2012 I have shadowed four PAs in varying fields of medicine but all for brief periods of time (about three days at the most). I enjoyed most of my experiences shadowing but I felt as if they were too busy to schedule more days to observe them. I feel as if shadowing a PA was repetitive. Aside from the medical information they were giving me about patients and such (which was way over my head sometimes but REALLY interesting), I was hearing over and over again about grades, the application process, and what a PA's responsibilities were. My question is, should I continue trying to shadow? There aren't a lot of PAs in my area but maybe I'm doing this shadowing thing wrong if I'm finding it to be repetitive. My thoughts are that the purpose of shadowing is to learn what a PA does and I feel like I have become knowledgeable of what a day is like for a PA.
