MyPAbox, A Tool Empowering Pre-PAs

Choosing a Physician Assistant Program Can Be Tough

Are you a Pre-PA student who is struggling with how to choose a physician assistant program due to the overwhelming number of options? Maybe you don’t have the minimum “patient care experience” hours some schools require .. should you still apply to PA school this year? If so, then which one? And what about the other aspects of applying to PA school? Should you take a certain class over to raise your CASPA GPA or should you take a graduate-level class instead? Pre-PAs are tasked with logging shadowing hours, keeping track of their science GPA, getting letters of recommendation, it can be a lot to ask!

The “excel” spreadsheet has always been the solution but honestly, it’s so time-consuming to create and has to be updated annually!

Jacob and Sharjeel are two PAs who developed a solution. When we interviewed Jacob, he mentioned that they created myPAbox to solve so many of these problems and we’ve partnered with them to make life easier for Pre-PAs and give them the tools they need to succeed! This tool has a clean modern look with an interface that’s easy to use.  They spent two years in development and their attention to detail shows.
