Hi! My name is Alicia and I’m currently a second year Physician Assistant Student at the University of Toronto.
Because the PA profession is so new in Canada, there are very few resources to get in touch with current students. This blog is intended to serve both as a resource for the pre-PA community as well as an outlet for me to share my love for the PA profession!
I graduated from McMaster University in 2015 with a BSc. Kinesiology (Hons). Prior to entering the PA program, I worked at a multidisciplinary physiotherapy clinic where I worked closely with the Physiotherapist to implement rehabilitation programs. We worked with patients from a variety of backgrounds including sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, repetitive strain injuries, post-op, etc. It was a very hands on and patient-oriented experience.
My interests currently lie both in Family Medicine as well as Orthopedic Surgery. Join me on my journey through clerkship, where I expect to learn more about the field of medicine as well as about myself.
