Hello everyone! I am Meghan Ross, a soon to be PA student starting in 2017. I’m here guest blogging for Andrea and am going to share my experiences and thoughts on Medical Service trips and how I believe they were a really big factor on helping me get into PA school. This topic is very close to my heart. Some of my best experiences of my life to date have been having the opportunity to take two out of the country service trips while in undergraduate school at the University of Missouri. I believe most schools have similar opportunities for those interested in service and medicine!

In recent years I have made every effort to attend the AAPA’s annual conference. However, I spent my early years as a fledgling PA wondering what the conference was like and if it was worth the hassle of travel and added expenses. I encountered very few PAs who stressed the importance of attending the conference, therefore, I assumed it should not be high on my priority list. I was wrong. A few years ago I attended my first AAPA conference and immediately craved more of the camaraderie felt during such an amazing gathering. This year it was held in San Antonio, TX at an beautiful conference center with phenomenal keynote speakers, PA Kevin Lacz and Terry Stone. Here is a recap of my week at the conference!
