Applying to PA school can be an intimidating and stressful process. Between traveling and interviewing, it can be hard to discern which school is the right fit and can be daunting when you leave an interview feeling defeated and not good enough. A difference that I felt immediately leaving Methodist’s interview was a sense of accomplishment and hope for the future. I had experience as a medical scribe and desired to learn from the instructors at Methodist due to their diverse background. The staff at the program were inspiring, focused, and devoted to my questions, concerns, and interests. The interview process was organized, enlightening, and cohesive, leaving me with a strong desire to attend the program.
I was elated to know that I was accepted into the program following the interview. The intentionality of study mimicked that of my undergrad, and I was excited to take advantage of the labs, resources, and faculty that Methodist had to offer. I can say that Methodist has been a place of excellence, passion, diversity, and inclusion. The faculty and staff work tirelessly on our behalf, and the PANCE outcomes are a direct reflection of that. The atmosphere that is developed allows the students to lift each other up and support each other, rather than compete for a grade or title. These lessons and strengths of Methodist are ones that are imperative in preparing us to work in the medical field, setting Methodist apart from so many other programs. At Methodist you are more than just a number, and for that I cannot recommend it enough.
