No Experience Necessary
Question by Jette Madsen-nabergall: Concerning Experience for pa school?
I am Entering Usf this coming year as a freshman first year student majoring in Biomedical Science, with an aim in becoming a Physicians assistant. I have done some research and it appears the general consensus is that one must have a great deal of mdeical experience in order to be accepted to pa school. My question is: where would I be able to acquire that kind of experience having just graduated with a biomedical science 4 year degree? would i have to get extra schooliong to apply for a different medical position like E.M.T work? or switch majors to nursing, so as to have an outlet of work experience? I’d rather not major in nursing as i feel it isnt suited to me,What are my options?

If you go to the loma linda university physician assistant program website you will find a huge list of activities you can and cannot do in order to satisfy the minimum hours needed for a PA program.
