Hey, you guys I’ve officially started PA School 😊 Glory to God! I’m still in awe and so grateful that God chose me to serve in this field and in this capacity. It makes my heart so full!
Orientation was last Thursday and Friday and school started Monday. When I tell y’all I felt like last week was the longest week ever! It seemed like Thursday and Friday were never going to come lol. During Orientation I was able to meet my classmates, all the professors and faculty (the majority of them I interviewed with) learn important things about the program, meet our advisors, we did some team-building exercises and ordered our medical equipment! I can’t wait to show you guys the stethoscope I ordered (look below lol).
The First Week of PA School
The first week of PA school is officially under my belt! Wooo Hoo!! This semester I’m taking Anatomy (and lab), Physiology, Health Systems and Risk Management, Interpersonal Communication and History Taking, Intro to Pharmacology, Fundamentals of Medical Science, and Role of a Physician Assistant & Intro to the PA Profession. My classes are Monday- Thursday typically starting at 9 am and ending at 4 pm. Of course, the first day I was a ball of nerves because I didn’t know what to expect (like uh what did I get myself into lol) but honestly my first week wasn’t bad at all. I’m trying to figure out what ways I’m going to study so I can develop my study schedule for the semester. Did I study this week? Sure did! After class, I took a break and would go over what we learned that day just to keep up because the next day we were going over something new. In undergrad, I was the one who liked to write everything down versus using my laptop, but I’ve found it faster for me to type in class instead of writing. Now I don’t know if that will be my approach for all of PA school but that’s what I’m going to do for right now.
We have soap notes due Monday so I’ve been working on those with my classmates. Oh, how much scribing has come in handy for these. Thank you Jesus!
Overall my first week of PA school was great! I like my classmates and the faculty. You can tell they really want everyone to succeed and do well in the program! God is beyond amazing and I’m so grateful I’m not on this journey alone. I just wanted to let you guys know how my first week went!
There are moments when I already felt overwhelmed but I had to take a step back and just breath. I know God will see me through everything!
Let me know what type of topics you guys want to hear more about!
I love you guys and God loves you soooooooo much!
Here are a few pictures of my classmates and I! Taking a study break and having some fun :)
