looking for a good PANRE review program

Recommended Posts

as the title states...I was wondering what was anyone's/everyone's experience with UMDNJ, EMory, HippoPA or anything else that is comparable. Trying to figure out which one to get.

 

Thanks!

I'm currently using the UMDNJ course to get ready for my first PANRE, and so far I like it a lot. It's not perfect, but it definitely gives you a good place to work from. Topics are clear and well defined.

PASims, why do you think UMDNJ is better than Drexel review?

 

Brian, what are you pros and cons with the UMDNJ?

 

Oh and if it matters, I am reviewing for my first PANRE as well. Work in Interventional Cardiology.

CME resources is excellent but in class 8-10 hrs/day x 5 days and no DVD option for home study and expensive.

 

UMDNJ and Emory are really good. Faculty at UMDNJ are great but their nonfaculty lecturers could use some improvement, esp pharmacology. Cardio was especially helpful. Emory was also good but pulm and GI sections could have been better. Pharm and cardio lecturers were really helpful. If you could combine these 2 it would be like CME Resources. Both have their flaws and neither is perfect but they both will help in passing the exam.

 

Checked out Hippo PA...although they claim to have a 99% pass rate (800 PAs) they have only been around for about a year. I like the idea of having fun while I learn and I checked out the free trial so I know these guys know their stuff and are funny, but I would wait until they have some more time under their belt and read reviews from other PAs.

 

I like the idea of home study with the DVDs Emory and UMDNJ provide. You at least have the option of reviewing a lecture if necessary and don't need to worry about travelling and getting a hotel, etc. Downside is not being able to ask questions but that is why we have supervising MDs and PA colleagues...

 

Would like to hear comments from others who have attended these courses...

If you're on the west coast, the OHSU review course in August is a pretty good deal--good teaching for the money. I took it as PANCE prep, and will probably go through it again for my first PANRE.

I'm on the east coast!

im thinking of combining both @ home DVD / online review with

a live course. But only 3 days due to lack of CME $$ & days off.

I want to do live as it forces me vs. procrastinating

i saw that cert. med. has live webinar. I may try that if I still get CME credits.

Any1 done that?

Umdnj online is great sans the Neuro lecture. You can split the costs with classmates and share a login if you want too (for us poor students)

      I'm looking into PA school requirements and have seen that most require Human Anatomy & lab, and Human Physiology & lab. My current university (UCSD) only offers a Human Physiology lecture course. Most of the city colleges I'm looking into in order to fulfill this pre-req only offer Human Anatomy or Human Physiology as a single course of lecture and lab, rather than having separate lecture and lab courses. Do PA schools accept lecture & lab combination courses or do they want each lecture and lab to be a separate course?

      Hi, thank you to every one who dropped by to help! Below are the science courses I took in order, with grades:
      general biology I (C- first time, A second time), general biology II (B-)
      **general chemistry I (C+), general chemistry II (C) --- both with labs
      general physiology (B)
      biochemistry (B)
      organic chem I (B-), organic chem II (B-)
      genetics (B-)
      microbiology (A)
      human anatomy (A)
      endocrinology (A)
       
      Planning on taking: immunology, human physiology, developmental biology, medical terminology OR primate anatomy 
      I'm currently a second term senior at a university, and I graduate Spring 2021. Many people advise students to not retake basic courses and focus on upper level courses, but there are also many people who suggest to retake any basic course with C grades to show PA schools that the first grades I received do not define my capability.
      Any opinion on whether I should spend extra time to retake general chemistry I and II ? If I should retake them, then should I enroll in the labs again or that won't be necessary since I already took them the first time I took the courses?
       
      Thank you again for your time!

      Wondering if anyone knows of schools with minimal or no credit expirations. Many schools require prereqs are taken within 5, 7, 10 years and I've retaken three courses thus far to meet most schools' requirements. Soon, more will fall outside of these ranges and it's exasperating to think I will have to pay out-of-pocket for more classes. I'll probably wind up retaking them, but I figure it doesn't hurt to put feelers out there if it means having more money dedicated to applications.

      Hey, everybody! Fairly new here. I’ve been scrolling through other threads on this site regarding recommended online schools for prerequisite courses. A few of the threads are extremely helpful but several years old, so I wanted to start a more contemporary thread in case online school qualities have changed or there are any new ones. 
      I’m looking to take biochemistry and anatomy online. Ideally a low price would be great, but a self-paced online course is most important to me considering my current career and associated time restrictions. 
      I’ve been looking heavily at UNE for both courses but have heard mixed reviews. Any recommendations or suggestions based on your experiences, for UNE or others?
      Thank you so much!

      question about chem lab!
      Hey everyone! I hope you are well well, I had a question about taking chem lecture and chem lab together. I currently haven't been able to get my lecture and lab together and probably won't be able to do the labs until the summer time. I am looking to apply to most of the nyc/northeast programs and wanted to know if its ok to take the labs separate?
