That's strange that no one ever replied... hmmm. Well, what type of medicine are you interested in? I work in dermatology but I know PAs in all different specialities... let me know and I can see what I can do to help you.

As of right now, I am interested in dermatology. I worked in a dermatologist's office in Boca last summer, and shadowed one in Miramar, over christmas break. I would love to shadow in that field or emergency medicine, but I'm open to all specialties. I just need something in Miami, or not too far from it. If you could give me any suggestions as far as who to contact, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, Jackie

Okay well if you are interested in derm I can definitely help. I love it :-) EM PAs are very happy too. My best advice to students is to shadow doctors but even more importantly shadow PA/ARNPS. You will learn just as much (most likely MORE) and see what you would actually be doing on a day to day basis. I'd be more than happy to have you join me if you'd be interested. I'm located in Ft Laud though. If you like surgery you could join us for a morning to watch Mohs cases... I will see if I can help with you any derm or em PAs in Miami. Keep me posted.

That all sounds great. I would love to join you. Although, the only day i would be available is Friday because of classes the rest of the week. I am looking for someone to shadow on a weekly basis(like once a week) if that's something you would be willing to do. If not, even coming up for one day would be great. Where in Ft. Lauderdale are you located? And if you do know some PAs in any specialty in Miami, that would be a big help. Thanks again :)

What is your email? I'll send you more info that way. Fridays may not work for me (no surgeries Fridays and I use those days to get a paperwork/etc done). We'll talk though.

Hello Kim,

I just read that you work in dermatology. I am interested in becoming a PA in dermatology. I am trying to take my first steps in building up a resume that will be competitive in getting accepted into PA school. I was wondering if I could get in contact with you to shadow. My email address in dholm002@fiu.edu. I hope to hear from you!

Thank You,
Danielle

Hi Danielle,
Okay. Our office is busy and the doctors aren't always willing to slow down much for students but that being said I love to teach and if you like surgery we do a lot of Mohs cases- you could join us for a morning or 2. Mornings are best. Keep me posted.

Jackie in Miami, Florida said: Hi, I am currently a University of Miami senior and I am looking for a PA to shadow in the area. Are there any PAs on this forum that are available? or does anyone know the best way to go about findng and contacting a PA?

Thanks

Hey Jackie,
I was wondering if you ever had any luck finding a PA to shadow in the Miami area? I also tried the FAPA shadow list and never received any responses. Thanks!

Hi Whitney, I actually did not. Its been a long process and im waiting to hear back from a few people. I was told though that the FAPA list is outdated. I would say the best bet is to just search online for PAs in the area and call them and ask. I did that over break in Ft. Lauderdale and was able to find someone. If I hear back from anyone in Miami. I will let you know.

Hi Kim,
I am desperate! I cannot find a PA to shadow anywhere. I have gotten in touch with several PA's who say they will take the time, but I must hunt them down and they never get back to me. I know it's hard to make time, but if you are willing or know anyone else that is I would love to follow someone around for a few hours (more if possible). I was originally going to do the med school route, but feel this is a much better choice. I would love the experience soon, so I can complete my application for this cycle and still be competitive. My email is sharieselesky@gmail.com. Thanks for the time.

Derm PA-C in Miami, Florida

37 months ago

Hello to those still interested in shadowing PAs in south Florida. I recently relocated and apologize for not getting back to everyone who posted here. The interest and response has been overwhelming. If I could help each and every one of you I would, however my more realistic goal is to at least be able to guide you in the right direction. As a PA in the state of Florida I strive for a better understanding of our profession and our accessibility to patients and I hope (SOON) students interested in the field as well. Please contact me directly via email dermpafl@gmail.com if you have specific interests in dermatology or any questions. Also, please email me if you wish for me to contact you with more information regarding PA shadowing (websites, blogs, email blasts, facebook/fan page, etc). I plan on working with FAPA to update shadowing lists and hopefully get more providers involved in the community. Hope everyone is doing well. I'll be in touch.
All my best,
Kim

Hi Kim, looking at this thread I'm sure you already have a list of people wanting to shadow you but I'm going to be in the area over my winter break (Dec. 15-Jan. 15) and I was wondering if there was any point during that time I could help out or shadow you for a short period. It was really sweet of you to put yourself on this discussion and offer college students the opportunity to shadow you, I really hope you aren't regretting it. I hope you know how much the experience it means as an undergrad going into her senior year at Kenyon College.
If you do have time over the break my email is kaye.jacqueline@gmail.com
Thanks again,
Jackie Kaye

Hi Kim,

I am applying to PA schools next year and I already work for a dermatologist, maybe you know him. His name is Dr. James E. Fulton. Unfortunately, working for a Doctor will not fulfill my requirements for shadowing a PA. I have been trying to look for PA's around south Florida, but no one has responded. I was hoping maybe you could help me. I'd really appreciate any advice and help you can offer.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Sameeksha Patil
