The AAPA Student Committee recently held its first live webinar on the topic of Interview Techniques. Presenter Gabe Dumbrille provided valuable tools and resources during his discussion of the three “acts” of an interview presentation. For a related discussion, we suggest taking a look at the notes from our 2018 Conference Student Round Table, which include a section on finding and accepting a PA position.
Did you know that the AAPA Student Committee is the only professional committee devoted specifically to PA students? Our primary goal is to advocate for students while offering resources and information that will help you grow as a PA. We determine what information and resources to share based on your suggestions and feedback. For example, our Interview Techniques webinar was developed in response to student interest in this topic. We want to continue providing you with relevant and helpful information.
We recognize that applying for and accepting your first position as a PA is an important milestone in shaping your professional career. This can be a complicated process, so we encourage you to use as many resources as you can to prepare.
