    I currently co-own an internet marketing business that has been around for a while. Do you think my profession as an entrepreneur will help or hinder my acceptance into a good PA program?

    pa programs typically want folks with 2+ yrs prior medical experience. pa is meant to be a second medical career following rn, paramedic, resp. therapist, etc.
    owning a business says you can manage people and resources and would be a good feature to an application in addition to, but not as a replacement for, medical experience.
    there are programs that accept applicants without medical experience...none of them are worth attending.......

    Hello emedpa,

    I was planning on working as an EMT for at least a year before I applied. Hopefully there are a decent amount of EMT-I jobs in the Atlanta area when I am ready to work. I only plan on attending schools that require medical experience ;) Emory is my first choice.

    Thanks!
