University of North Carolina at Pembroke
Before PA school, I was a certified surgical technician for four years while finishing my undergraduate education. My experiences as a surgical tech made me fall in love with the medical profession and made me realize that I just wanted to do more. The fall before I entered the PA program, I went on a medical mission trip to Honduras. This trip opened my eyes to healthcare disparities worldwide and encouraged me to further apply to PA school.
I chose Methodist because all previous testimonies told me it was the best of the best. I am happy I selected Methodist because the staff is truly remarkable. All of the staff are highly skilled in their professions and offer exceptional real-world experience integrated with the academic curriculum. They can be challenging at times, but they are only tough because they genuinely want you to succeed.
