I am so excited to be pursuing a career as a PA as I believe I will truly allow me to achieve both my professional and personal goals alike.
I am excited to be able to challenge myself throughout my career with the option to change specializations as a practicing PA, while being in an occupation that revolves around lifelong learning.
Additionally, coming from an engineering background, I recognize the importance of team-based learning and am excited to continue with this style of learning at McMaster and to then further practice a collaborative approach to patient care as a future PA.
Because of the nature of the PA profession in Canada, I am excited to have the opportunity to be an advocate for the growing profession.
“Entering my PA journey from the perspective of an engineering student, I hope that I can encourage other students who are considering the PA route and are in atypical undergraduate degrees to go for it!”
I think that this was actually the main thing that helped me stand out in my admissions process. Because of this, I always encourage those interested in the PA program to know what makes them unique, and to really use that as a drive throughout their application process.
