Read about my interview at McMaster University on May 3, 2014. In this post, I documented the events of the day and also explained the workings of a Multiple Mini Interview format.
[POST-ADMISSION] I think most health-related programs would require similar documents so students may benefit from knowing what I had to provide for the Physician Assistant Program. In this post, I will discuss what was required and how I went about obtaining documents such as a police check, immunizations, CPR certification, and official transcripts.
…And how awesome this profession is! Hopefully by the end of this post you will be more aware of Physician Assistants working in healthcare, the importance of their role and what they do.
Officially started school at McMaster University in the Physician Assistant Education Program! I am excited to share with you some memorable events that happened during my first week of school! Here I covered my first day of school, my new classmates, the PA Welcome BBQ, my first problem-based learning tutorial, the mask fit testing and just a snippet of my favourite spot on campus.
Curious about what classes I have and what I have been learning? It has been a few weeks into the Physician Assistant Education Program at McMaster and I think I have had a good amount of exposure to all my classes to be able to describe them to you.
Five months ago, I received my offer of admission into the PA program (“I MADE IT!”). I am so blessed and grateful for what I have experienced so far in the program. Read more about my OR orientation at Juravinski Hospital, my first CRE experience, and my position in MPASA
Since applications to the McMaster Physician Assistant program is now open, I want to share about the aspects of the program that I love to students who are interested in the program.
Thank you readers for checking up on this small blog! I really enjoy posting whenever I get the chance. Thank you to those who sent me warm messages about the usefulness of this blog! I really appreciate it! I hope these posts gives you a good read and that it gives you an idea of what a Physician Assistant’s training is like. I have compiled some photos to summarize my first term. Here’s to the new year, new challenges and new experiences!
It has been a month since coming back from Christmas break and Medical Foundations 2 has been absolutely busy! At the same time, this is the best experience of my life.
We did it! McMaster’s Class of 2016 Physician Assistants graduated on November 14, 2016. On October 27, 2016, we wrote our PA Entry to practice certification exam. We received our results recently and I am excited to sign my name off with the designation CCPA (Canadian Certified Physician Assistant).
