A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to job shadow a Physician Assistant in the ER of one of our local hospitals. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see a whole lot of action, but I’m tentatively scheduled to go back in June and hopefully I’ll get to see more then. This was the second PA I’ve shadowed (the first was at my neurologists office) and a very different setting from the other experience. I love that I leave excited and ready to learn more about the profession!
I’ve been struggling with the “what I want to be when I grow up” question for quite some time now. Now–finally, finally!–I have a plan. On Tuesday, May 10th, I officially became a college student again when I registered for class at Sinclair Community College. I’ll have 9 prerequisite classes to take before applying to Kettering College of Medical Arts’ Masters of Physician Assistant Studies program.
For now I’m planning to ease myself back into things by taking a “soft”(er) science class–psychology–this summer. Starting in the fall though, it’ll be all chem, o-chem, and bio for me!
And so the journey begins…
