Pre Physician Assistant Help: What counts as Patient Contact?

This video talks about what counts and doesn’t count as patient contact hours for your PA school application! In Texas we are lucky because many schools do NOT require a minimum number of patient contact hours – but this experience is so important!

What you can consider (but need to double check with the schools to be 100% sure!): Patient Care Tech, ER Tech, Cath lab Tech, Sonographer Tech, Radiology Tech etc… Medical Assistant, Scribe, EMT, Paramedic, CNA, nursing, phlebotomist, physical therapy assistant and much more! Please verify with the PA schools though: each has different expectations. This could mean that some will ONLY want paid hours vs. volunteer hours for example.
