Try putting it in speaker view
yes we can see it :)
we just lost sound
You sound great!
There are several colleges in Oregon that have transitioned to P/NP grading for the spring/summer term due to COVID-19
Thanks for pointing that out, Steven.
If you’ve done master’s program, will those grades be taken into account?

^^ I second Candice’s question
Thanks Candace. I’ll pose that in just a moment.
I second Lyubov’s comment
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?
I second Lyubov’s question!
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 :)

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.
Will the majority of the clerkships take place in Oregon? Or is that yet to be determined?
Great resource Dr. Jamison. Thank you!
Thanks Dr. Jamieson!
Steven, great question. I’ll pose this in just a moment.
That was helpful thank you
🙋Me! Pick me! That challenge and invitation to join the PA program at GFU was so inspiring!
How many students will be admitted into the program out of the applicant pool?
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!
Our 2021 Cohort will be 20 students
Our first cohort will be 20 students
I second Isabella’s question
Is A BSN a suitable bachelors degree to be accepted in the program.
What time of year does each cohort begin? January or September?
Also, consideration of Master’s program coursework (ie MPH)
Yes, a BSN would be a great bachelors degree!
The program starts in January
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.
What if cumulative GPA is 3.0, but after revision it's 3.8. Which one would be counted for admission?
Is there any estimate for how many applicants are expected for this application cycle?
Follow up from Alexander's question. Is there a non-suitable bachelor's degree? As long as pre-requisite GPAs are above 3.0?
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.
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!
Carolle - we’re anticipating 600 applications
At this time, do you have a rough estimate of the anticipated number of applicants that will be interviewed?
All bachelor's degrees are acceptable.
We anticipate 600 applicants but of course cannot know for sure.
Andrew - all degrees from an English speaking regionally accredited institution meet our requirements. It does not have to be in a particular field.
What locations have you established currently for the foreign service trips?
Dylan - it sounds like you’re poised to be successful in submitting your applciation
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?
Is there any courses that would be advantageous to review for the program like immunology, anatomy/physiology, pathophysiology, MCB, genetics, etc?
Can ya'll speak briefly about Fox's option to get a doctorate of medical science degree after the master's program?

Curious if the program would consider service trips for Native tribal reservations right here in the US?

Thank you Dr. Stilp!
i already took those, I was wondering if I should review them for the program
Thank you for being so clear !
Kathryn (Katie) Vincent
Always considering our safety, very appreciated
Would the last 60 credits also include Master’s program credit or just undergrad?
What would be recommended voluntarism between the application submission and until be beginning of the matriculation in January?
Whatever volunteer activity that you have a passion for.
Appreciate all the answers, thank you!
Great clarification on courses to refresh. Thank you.
I am a traditional student, thank you for the answer!
One of your core values is to foster a commitment to Christian values. How is that emphasized into the didactic portion of the program?
Great question. I think we’ll close with that one, Lin. Thanks
