What is the best way to find a Physician Assistant to shadow in the bay area?
I want to become a Physician Assistant, but some colleges I'm looking into require shadowing hours with either a Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. How do I go about doing this? Would it best in a hospital setting or private doctor office? Does anyone know off hand someone I can shadow? I live in the Bay Area, about 45 minutes from San Francisco and would be willing to travel. I am currently a nursing assistant, but do not have a job. Thanks for any advice!
