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)

      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?

      I know that schools normally want you to take labs for prereqs in person. Has anyone heard from schools about labs being online due to covid and if those can satisfy the prereq requirement for classes requiring labs? Ex would be chemistry 1 lab or microbio lab. Not sure I'll have the option to take those labs in person, so I'm trying to see if the online version from my local university will work.

      It looks on their website and on the CASPA prerequisites page like you have to take anatomy&physiology I and II...is this true? I took a separate human anatomy class and a physiology class - they weren't combined. I don't want to apply if this will not fulfill the requirement. Also, it says "Two semesters of human anatomy & physiology with laboratory (from a biology, physiology, zoology department, or an allied health program)"...my courses are from my school's kinesiology dept...will this not work?
      Thanks, I appreciate your feedback.

      Hey all, 
      I live on the west coast, specifically California. I have been looking into Doane University or UC Berkley to take classes and retake some prerequisites. I was wondering if any one from California has taken classes or anyone else has taken these classes and applied to pa schools in CA? Were those classes accepted? 
      I have reached out to schools and they just say they accept classes from "regionally accredited schools" which I know Doane is, but is there a issue since these classes are online? 
      I know it can be best to take classes in person, however I work a full time job where I am not able to attend local community classes since they are during my work hours. 
      Any help will be appreciated! 
      Cheers!

      Does anyone have any experience taking an online ochem 2 class in Doane university. Wondering how the class itself is structured and how the exams and assignments are administered given that it is not proctored.
