Life experiences question

Recommended Posts

Hello! This is my third time applying and they added the life experiences question under the “other information” tab right after the COVID question. I’m not entirely sure if it’s a requirement to answer/how to answer it??

the question is: 

Explain how your life experiences and/or perspectives could contribute to the PA profession. How can these experiences help advance the goal of having healthcare providers who reflect the population of the country?

This question provides an opportunity to describe impactful life experiences, especially challenges or adversity in areas such as family background, community setting, education, or other hardships or life experiences that may not be easily presented in other parts of the application. The experiences described can be from any point in your timeline and do not need to be directly related to the field of medicine or health care. This question is also intended to provide admissions committees with information to understand the context of your journey better and to assist with mission alignment through holistic review of applicants.
