You sound great!
Steven Shockley

There are several colleges in Oregon that have transitioned to P/NP grading for the spring/summer term due to COVID-19
Graduate Admissions
01:15:54
Thanks for pointing that out, Steven.
Candice Jimenez
01:17:22
If you’ve done master’s program, will those grades be taken into account?
Kathryn (Katie) Vincent
01:18:05
^^ I second Candice’s question
Lyubov Russell
01:18:41
YAY!!!!!!!!!!
Graduate Admissions
01:18:46
Thanks Candace. I’ll pose that in just a moment.
Jordan Javellana
01:18:58
I second Lyubov’s comment
Lyubov Russell
01:22:36
With many clinics being closed or drastically reduced in hours it is difficult to obtain any shadowing experience at this time. How many hours are required to receive a max score on the point scale for shadowing?
Isabella Anuel
01:25:07
I second Lyubov’s question!
Graduate Admissions
01:26:51
Thank you Luba and Isabella…we’ve moved passed admissions requirements. I’ll save this question for the end. I’ve made note of it. Be sure to remind me if I forget :)
Lyubov Russell
01:27:20
thanks!
Isabella Anuel
01:28:30
perfect thanks!

Another great source to get your mind thinking "medically" and PBL.. CLINICAL PROBLEM SOLVERS". These are 35 -45 minute podcasts that will get your mind thinking in terms of medical clinical problem solving techniques. The material may be over your head at times... but you will learn a lot of medicine and it will help you with your PBL first year.
Steven Shockley
01:36:48
Will the majority of the clerkships take place in Oregon? Or is that yet to be determined?
Graduate Admissions
01:37:05
Great resource Dr. Jamison. Thank you!
Michaela Semple

🙋Me! Pick me! That challenge and invitation to join the PA program at GFU was so inspiring!
Dakotah Rothfus
01:48:37
How many students will be admitted into the program out of the applicant pool?
Isabella Anuel
01:48:43
This is related to admissions as well. Does the program consider the applicant using a holistic approach? meaning will you look at academics, service, shadowing, HCE hours, and at the person as a whole or is one thing prioritized over others? (besides the minimum 3.0 cum GPA requirement and the prerequisites?) I ask because there was a time during college where I went through hard life circumstances and I did not meet the 3.0 (B) score for two of my prereqs, but these are not reflective of who I am as a student or of how capable I am to succeed academically. And my transcript shows that too… so should I still apply? I love what George Fox stands for as a Christ follower and as a passionate person for service so I would really like to know. Thank you!
Heather
01:48:52
Our 2021 Cohort will be 20 students
Graduate Admissions

Dakotah Rothfus

Thank you!
Candice Jimenez
01:50:15
I second Isabella’s question
Alexander Reece
01:50:43
Is A BSN a suitable bachelors degree to be accepted in the program.
Ariane Rosas
01:50:53
What time of year does each cohort begin? January or September?
Candice Jimenez
01:50:59
Also, consideration of Master’s program coursework (ie MPH)
Heather
01:51:59
Yes, a BSN would be a great bachelors degree!
Graduate Admissions
01:52:07
The program starts in January
Alexander Reece
01:52:11
Thank you!
Joshua Gunnels
01:52:35
Does the program consider emergency care as primary or secondary medicine? I know the usual primary care fields are family care, pediatrics, and internal medicine; Emergency care seems like such a gray area to me due to patients seeking primary care in emergency rooms when they cannot afford family care clinics.
Lyubov Russell
01:52:40
What if cumulative GPA is 3.0, but after revision it's 3.8. Which one would be counted for admission?
Carolle Kassab
01:53:13
Is there any estimate for how many applicants are expected for this application cycle?
Andrew Doan
01:53:33
Follow up from Alexander's question. Is there a non-suitable bachelor's degree? As long as pre-requisite GPAs are above 3.0?
Heather
01:53:38
Emergency medicine is not primary care. We understand not everyone in our class will enter primary care. If you are interested in our program please apply.
Dylan LeGrady
01:53:39
If you have already taken all the required courses, met requirements for direct patient care hours, shadowed and taken all the recommended courses, what materials should we review to be prepared for the program along with implementing the clinical problem solvers podcast. Thank you!
Graduate Admissions
01:53:49
Carolle - we’re anticipating 600 applications
Savannah Deming
01:54:23
At this time, do you have a rough estimate of the anticipated number of applicants that will be interviewed?
Heather
01:54:25
All bachelor's degrees are acceptable.
Heather
01:54:45
We anticipate 600 applicants but of course cannot know for sure.
Graduate Admissions
01:54:57
Andrew - all degrees from an English speaking regionally accredited institution meet our requirements. It does not have to be in a particular field.
Andrew Doan
01:55:36
Thank you!
Joshua Gunnels
01:56:08
Thank you!
Lin
01:56:16

Graduate Admissions
01:56:28
Dylan - it sounds like you’re poised to be successful in submitting your applciation
Dakotah Rothfus
01:57:05
Do you have disability services available for your PA program? If yes, what services/accommodations would be available for a student with a learning disability such as dyslexia?
Dylan LeGrady
01:58:33
Is there any courses that would be advantageous to review for the program like immunology, anatomy/physiology, pathophysiology, MCB, genetics, etc?
Rachel Alexanian
01:59:07
Can ya'll speak briefly about Fox's option to get a doctorate of medical science degree after the master's program?
Lin
01:59:39
I second Rachel

Lyubov Russell

One of your core values is to foster a commitment to Christian values. How is that emphasized into the didactic portion of the program?
