Hi my name is Ahmed Rehman and Im a college student that attends Suffolk Community College. Im here to ask if there is any Physician Assistants around my area that are willing to allow me to shadow them. I was really interested in this career path since at a young age and I would love to shadow during the summer. I live around in East Patchogue and Brookhaven. Thank you.

It's really hard to find a PA to shadow in a private office due to HIPPA. Your best bet is to volunteer at a hospital and once in, ask their dept about shadowing. And you'll always get volunteer hours and shadowing hours. Win win.

      Hey everyone! While working as a Medical Assistant, I shadowed a PA at the same clinic. Is this seen as okay? There are three clinics in total so I didn't shadow everyday with him.

      I’m applying this cycle and I’ve been trying to find any shadowing opportunities in NYC but it’s difficult during this pandemic. If anyone has any leads please LMK. Thank you!

      Earlier this year I attended a PA school virtual fair in which multiple people said you want to be as descriptive as possible in your "experiences" tab on CASPA. I have worked several CNA jobs with different companies, but the job and work I did was basically the same. I'm looking for some advice... should I be redundant so I don't leave anything out in the work I did or should I try and pick out things that are more specific to each job? For example I worked in two nursing homes as a CNA and then as a traveling CNA with 2 agencies at the same time. Anyone able to give any feedback? I feel as if copying and pasting my job descriptions wouldn't look very good.

      Hello! I am going to be a senior college student in the fall of 2020. I am currently looking to shadow a PA in Western Mass during the winter or to shadow a PA in or near  Milton, Mass during the Fall 2020 semester. I am hoping to apply to PA school within a year after graduating and shadowing is one of the last requirements that I need to do. I am looking to do around 30 hours.

      Hello! I'm currently taking ochem (the second ochem class to complete the ochem unit requirements for some pa programs) but I'm not taking the lab. Would the lab be needed to complete the unit requirement even though my ochem units would suffice? there's literally one school I am going to apply to that says preferred requirement for ochem or biochem preferred with lab but I am not taking lab because of the course load. Would it detrimental if i dont take lab at all? as long as im taking the ochem classes..? 
      another thing, some schools require spanish but i took 4 years of spanish in high school (including the AP examination): is this acceptable?
