Physician Assistant Boards Podcast: Exam Review | Medicine | PANCE Preparation |

The bad news - you don't feel prepared. The good news - you're not alone. I tackled this question from a student:

"Hello! Hoping you're well. First off, thank you for being the best resource out there- you are amazing! I was wondering if you had any advice on keeping your head up as didactic year tries to drown you? I'm currently in my second semester (started rotations in May) and it's even harder than the first! Makes me want to find whoever said this semester should be easier and give them a piece of my mind, haha! How do I make this easier? Will clinicals be just as hard? Why do I feel so underprepared?! Thank you again for your guidance. I am truly appreciative."

I recently collaborated with two PA IG accounts (@lifeasaPA and @theskin.ny) to answer our most frequently asked questions. We got together on IG stories and answered:

1. What school did we go to and why?
2. What specialty do we work in?
3. Why did we choose PA over medical school?

Shreya started PA school in August 2014 with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and unfortunately, the school lost accreditation in December 2015 - right before they started the clinical year.

She's currently with PA program at Towson University and will be graduating June 2017.

Today, she shares her journey, and everything she's learned along the way.
