EXPERIENCE

We strongly recommend that applicants present documentation of a least one year — or 2000 hours — of direct patient care experience, including exposure to the PA position. Quality and quantity of patient care hours will be considered on a per-applicant basis. Please provide an updated resume alongside your application, as well. Applicants who undertake the wide breadth of patient responsibilities and demonstrate excellent critical thinking skills are competitive during the consideration process.

Examples of preferred clinical experiences:

  • Nurse (LPN or RN)
  • Paramedic/EMT
  • Military medical corpsman
  • Respiratory technologist
  • Radiology technologist
  • Medical assistant (certified with back office hours only)
  • Athletic trainer
  • Occupational therapist

Other forms and experiences of direct patient care will be critically evaluated for depth and breadth of the experience. Physician and/or PA shadowing is encouraged, but will not be considered direct patient care.
