The Applicant’s Manual of Physician Assistant Programs
I met Mark Volpe last November at a the Inaugural Future Educator Fellowship (FEF) PAEA Conference. Mark is a standup guy and his dedication to aide pre-PA students after entering the workforce really speaks to his character and motivation. Mark is also the author of a new book inspired to help pre-PA students easily navigate the pre-application process in hopes to narrowing the search for a PA-program-home.
The Applicant’s Manual of Physician Assistant Programs provides tips and tricks for navigating the application process and gives students useful and comprehensive information about every single accredited PA program in the US. This not only saves the student time in the exhausting and taxing search through PA program websites, but also provides the most important information about each school in a single comprehensive text to use at your own disposal. This manual easily helps to narrow down your list of potential PA programs and gain a competitive edge - the first step to applying to PA school.
Key features include:
1. An introduction section which reviews the basics of the PA school application and admissions process
2. Pages devoted to every single PA program, organized by state
3. Detailed information for each program including program mission statement, accreditation status, tuition, duration, admissions requirements, curriculum structure, and average acceptance statistics
4. Unique program features are provided for nearly every program ranging from opportunities for medical mission trips, community service, curricular innovations, and new facilities among others
If you're looking for a solid resource to help you narrow the search - this is your 'go-to'. You can purchase the book through Amazon (hardback) or via CreateSpace. If you use the code 5SH528DA, you can get a $7 discount thanks to Mark himself!
