Pre-PA Conference was a HUGE Success!!!!

I would like to thank everyone that was able to come to the Pre-PA conference. We have gotten a lot of positive feedback and some great suggestions of how to make it better.  I would also like to thank all the speakers, USC PA Program, CAPA, Touro University and Western U.  I know all the PA programs in CA get many applicants but taking the time to come out to the Pre-PA conference meant a lot to me and to the eighty one people that were able to come.

Many people have asked about the next conference and a small handful have asked about having one in Northern California. So far we are not sure when or where the next one is going to be. We have a lot of ideas that we are trying to explore and put together to back the next conference that much better.

If you are interested in attending the next conference please click here (please note this does not mean you will be guaranteed a ticket to the next conference):

After going through the feedback that people have left us and some of the questions I have gotten since the conference I will try and tailor some of my next post to those areas. They include:

  • Understanding the timeline of the application cycle
  • Time management as a busy Pre-PA student
  • What counts as clinical experience
  • Life as a PA-S (while I plan on blogging through PA school, for now I will point you to other PA-S blogs)
  • And more
If you have any other topics you would like me to discuss please do not hesitate to ask/suggest.

Also here are some pictures from the first Pre-PA Conference:
