Hello everyone, on behalf of the CSOM PA Club, I'd like to invite you to attend our PA club hours hosted every Thursday at 12:30 PM via zoom. These 1-hour sessions are hosted by current PA students and we answer prospective students' questions about our journey into PA school, the CASPA application, pre-requisites, etc. It is an informal environment in which you can come ask all the questions you have and have a feel for what the future might look like for you. If interested, please fill out the attached form and email it back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org at the beginning of the week corresponding to the session you like to attend in order to confirm attendance and receive the meeting link. We look forward to seeing you there.

Hello! I am selling the PA Student Guide to the Clinical Year, 7th edition, complete set! These were helpful for pre-clinical studying on a new rotation, when you feel out of practice and need quick refreshers, and for content-specific notes. Selling for $60 + shipping, OBO. If wanted, pickup in Indianapolis. Items are cross-posted and priced to sell! Original set was $160 and this set is in very good condition, only used for <1 year.
For this cycle, I have had the privilege of being accepted into two PA programs so far. And more interviews to come! My heart is telling me to go to program B, but my brain is telling me to stick with program A. I guess I am wowed by the flashy offerings of program B over program A that finally helps me feel at home at a educational institution(something I didn't have during my undergrad as a first gen student). Maybe this is me doubting myself, but somehow I feel I may not be as academically successful with a PA program that is only two years long because of the material crunch. The only thing holding me back from program B is graduating with crippling debt by the age of 28 😞, especially because I had a full ride to college.
Any and all honest opinions welcome. What would you do?
- 25 months
- Tuition 85-90k
- PANCE 93-97%
- Smaller city in midwest, cost of living fairly low
- Less time during clinical rotation phase/means less specialties I can explore?
- Has all the essentials technology/skill labs
- Top ranked program (probably doesn't matter)
- 30ish months with longer breaks
- Tuition 170-180k
- PANCE 91-96%
- Larger faculty
- Part of teaching hospital
- Big city, cost of living is larger
- Large alumni network/more leadership CAPA opportunities
Is there any specific wording for including the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination on my resume/CV before I sit for the exam in January 2022? I couldn't find anything specific online but found a couple of blog posts that recommended phrasing as:
"NCCPA Board Eligible" Put "anticipated" before your examination date if you are registered for the exam but have not taken it yet Put "pending" before your examination date if you have taken the exam and are awaiting results
On my current CV, I have: NCCPA Board Eligible (Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination) Anticipated January 2022
Any guidance or advice on this topic is appreciated! I would hate to word incorrectly and have it hurt my job search. Thank you!
I live in Carrollton but attend PA school in Nashville and am set to graduate in December. I had a rotation set up by my teacher that she had secured through a prior affiliation agreement. However, there was some miscommunication and it seems that my previous rotation site is no longer available. I was wondering if you are aware of any preceptorships from 09/13/21 to 10/15/21? Being that this is my elective, I feel that the terms are pretty broad so I have a lot of flexibility where I can work and no real preference. I know that an affiliation agreement is needed but my teacher informed me that generally she can get that done very quickly. Thank you for any information in advance.
