HERE’S WHAT INSIDE PA TRAINING IS ALL ABOUT

Hey there and welcome! I’m Paul Kubin, the publisher of Inside PA Training. Do you ever ask yourself…

  • “Is medicine be the career for me?
  • “Is there way to work in medicine and still have a life?”
  • “What exactly is a physician assistant?”
  • “How do you become a PA?”
  • “What can I do to improve my chances of getting into PA school?”

If you do, then you’re a lot like I was in 2009. I pretty much broke the internet looking for answers to these questions, and what I found was pretty disappointing. There wasn’t much information out there, and there was even less good information.

Long story short (the longer version is here if you’re interested), I worked through my many questions and became a PA and I’ve never looked back. The work fulfills me, draws on my natural talents, pays me well, and allows me to engage in other pursuits (case in point: this website, which has become my other passion.)

 

HOW INSIDE PA TRAINING CAN HELP YOU BECOME A PA

You don’t need to break the internet all over, like I did. After joining this field, I made it my mission to fill the information void about all the things I wondered when I was exploring a PA career. Everything I learned about this field — the admissions process, tips, news, what it’s like, and a thousand other things — is here for you.

  • Over 200 articles on PA medicine in our free blog and podcast
  • Video interviews with PA students about their stories
  • Our forum, where you can get support from other pre-PAs
  • Our directory of PA programs to help you decide where and how you will apply

 

In addition to all those freebies, we also offer

  • An iPhone app, so it’s all available to you on the fly ($1.99 on the at the Apple App Store)
  • And personalized 1-on-1 coaching with me (not $1.99, but very reasonably priced).

I love being a PA and I think you will too. So keep reading. Watch our videos. Download our books. Let me know what you think of the site. Drop me a line via the contact link and ask me a question. And if this site is helpful to you and we happen to bump into each other at a medical conference someday, please say hi and tell me story!

I have been a practicing Neurosurgeon for over 13 years. Since meeting Dr. Lipoff in the 90’s we have been treating patients together. As a chiropractor, he has demonstrated to me that he is a thorough, caring and intelligent professional. He has a good sense about him, knowing when to help someone with his own skilled hands and when to reach out for help. All of the people he has referred to me for a surgical evaluation have been properly worked up and treated with the appropriate trial of conservative treatment.
