Hi pa students and pa's, I am an international student in a community college, I wanted to go to med school initially and was a premed for a year in a 4 yr college, but I learned that only one private school in the u.s accepts international students, so I decided to perdue nursing in a community college but I recently learnt about pa school and I would love so much to work as a P.A. I have worked in healthcare for 3 years now. I have 2 relatives working as P.A's and my boyfriend is finishing his medical residency and I have learned so much from them. My question is, am I an eligible candidate for MEDEX? Even as an international student?, I would be applying for the undergraduate program with an interest in pursuing masters too.

 

Will appreciate feedback.

Call or email MEDEX & explain your situation. They will be the only ones who can answer that question specifically. Good Luck.

You need to get your credits assessed by a US college and see what will transfer. MEDEX does accept foreign med grads but they have to meet the requirements posted on their website

      This is going to sound pretty dumb but I'm serious! I'm so confused when it comes to applying to PA schools regarding the prerequisite coursework. I know MEDEX say that the courses can't be a part of prior training, but then I read online articles about how to incorporate prereqs for PA schools into your undergrad experience, killing 2 birds with 1 stone sorta thing...I understand the necessary courses. But I'm having a hard time discerning if the coursework can have been done as a part of one's undergrad. For example the cellular bio I took in my undergrad. Will that be applicable to MEDEX? Or does every prereq have to be done after completing one's bachelors? By the way I have a BA, not a BS. I'm late to the party:(

      Hey everyone,
      It was great to meet so many amazing, skilled people at the interview yesterday!  I was wondering if anyone wanted to keep in touch after the interviews?  It’s always good to network, right?  Anyway, hit me up if anyone wants to talk about anything PA related or not.  I wish everyone the best of luck in all your interviews and future PA endeavors!  
      My email is: klmauldin@gmail.com

      I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.

      Can anyone recommend a good lawyer in Washington State that is familiar with laws regarding PA owned/operated medical practices?  Considering starting my own practice, and while I've done a lot of my own research, I will ultimately require professional legal advice.

      Hey everyone!
      I am creating this form so everyone that who has received an acceptance phone call/letter can communicate together more efficiently. Has anyone received a phone call yet? If and when you receive an acceptance phone call/letter be sure to let us know so everyone can keep track of who is going to be the future classmates of Tacoma Class 6. Best wishes to everyone!
