Now Offering: Pre-PA School Consulting

posted on: October 30, 2014

I started this blog and Instagram a year ago with the mission of sharing skin care tips and information on various dermatology conditions. What I did not expect is how many Pre-PA students I’ve “met” the past year via this blog and Instagram. There are many steps that one must complete prior to being accepted to a PA program. Everything from choosing which PA program is right for you , ensuring you’ve completed all necessary pre-reqs for that specific program, obtaining an average of at least 1000 hours of paid hand-on medical experience, finding PAs to shadow, taking the GRE or MCAT, accruing medical volunteer hours, and that’s just the basics. Once you’ve checked all the those off the list you need to ask yourself, “what is going to make me the most competitive applicant?” All of this can be quite a daunting task.

For years I’ve mentored and guided numerous Pre-PA applicants on their journey to PA school. This is something I am very passionate about. I absolutely love my job and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Watching the journey of those from working on their undergraduate degree to getting through PA school and finally landing their dream job is such a rewarding experience. My goal is to help as many people as I can complete their PA journey. It seems like a natural progression to now offer structured Pre-PA School Consulting. I have joined C&C Independent College Consulting to offer comprehensive consulting for Pre-PA students at any place of their journey to becoming a certified Physician Assistant.

    Hey Erin,
    I just read about your journey about getting into PA school. I noticed your in the dermatologist field, which is definitely one of the specialities I was looking into. I wanted to know where you applied, where you got accepted and what your GPA was. I’m graduating with my bachelor’s this May 2015 and I’m not sure how high my GPA will be by then because it’s very low at the moment.

    Please get back to me!

    Thank you,
    Hiba
