cget3 Posted February 8, 2013 Share Posted February 8, 2013 Recently I have decided to persue a career as a PA. I am currently in the USCG and seeking advice on my path to becoming a PA. Before the military I worked in a sleep lab, DME company where I setup patients with oxygen equipment and just about every prescribed piece of medical equipment there is, and Radiology as an assistant. All of my experiences gave me a great deal of direct patient contact. I am also attending EMT training in the near future and plan volunteering at local hospitals. I am currently attending a community college to finish the few prereqs I have left to apply for the miltaries program. If I do not get accepted I plan on continuing my education so that I am eligible to apply for numerous PA programs before I separate. My program of study is pre-med biology but it is becoming more difficult to attend classes with my work schedule. Also with the tuition assistance I recieve it is cheaper to attend online classes. I have been looking into changing my degree plan to something I can obtain online such as psychology. As stated before I will have all of the required prereqs to apply a PA program, but before I decide to take online classes I would greatly appreciate any input on how this would effect my chances of getting accepted into a civilian PA program in the future. I want to make the right decisions and will do whatever is needed to obtain my goal. V/R Chase Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
