Enjoy your summer. I’ve heard that there’s a lot of opinions about this, whether to study or whether to brush up on some anatomy or travel somewhere.
Because of my Undergrad, I did not have the opportunity to take any anatomy classes or physiology classes, that related to human anatomy specifically unlike a lot of my classmates who took, kinesiology undergrads or health sciences.
And I came in blind to this profession – into first year PA school and got thrown into anatomy labs and cadaver labs and learning all this material that I had never touched before in my undergrad.
So at that time it was a bit overwhelming but I knew I had the ability to learn quickly and study efficiently in order to get through that first semester.

I took the opportunity to just to travel and hang out with friends and family and I worked a little bit, we had our medical terminology course during the summer and I didn’t really know any better cause I didn’t know anyone in the PA program to tell me anything else that, your first semester is going to be really hard, you should probably brush up on this subject.
I didn’t have anyone to tell me that and I’m sort of glad I didn’t have anyone to tell me that because I’m very grateful for those months that I had during the summer.
