I am extremely interested in becoming a PA and was wondering about prior experience.
I am currently completing my internship in order to become a Registered Dietitian. At the completion of this internship, I will have over 900 hours working in Long Term care facility. In addition, I have held a research job for two summers at a large, well known system of medical centers, as well as have volunteered in the nutrition department at a local, community hospital.
I am hoping to shadow a PA this summer or fall to gain further experience. Does anyone know of any facilities in the NY metro region who would accept a student? How many hours of shadowing does the typical applicant have?
Thank you so much!
