Are depositions shown up on PA school applications?


Recommended Posts

I was a scribe for 4 years and left that position over a year ago. I just received an email that a law firm is seeking my deposition for what I'm assuming is a patient I charted on. Im probably over-reacting, but do these show up on PA school applications, and if so, do they have a huge effect on my application as a whole?

I believe for the application it’s only required if you’ve ever been found guilty of a misdemeanor or felony. But depending on what happened in the case if someone was found negligent, it can hinder employment prospects after PA school. Typically it’s the physician’s responsibility to oversee employees are conducting themselves in a professional manner and following the policies.
