I applied for year 2005 and got the offer, but rejected. I think it is very competitive.

I only applied one program in San Antonio, pretty descent program. I
contaced other program like in Balyor medical school, they did not accept my school credits, they told me to register in UT as a college student and finish all the courses until UT gives me the bachelor degree. But the
program in SA was very nice, I sent them my credential, and they evaluated my medical school courses, and said that I only need to make up for psychiatry course, so I joined an on line (full-time job) psychiatry course in UT-Austin, and I finished after 2 months, and got A+. And then I applied only this SA program, I was selected among 60 for interviews out of 800 applicates. And the spots are less than 12.

The interview was tought, requiring a lot of communication skills, there
were 3 faculty interviews, one was very intimidated by my current title and papers. The last interview panel included 5 person, and they all stared at me across the room and ased questions whoever had the questions. That was the toughest one. In order to qualify, the program also require >300 hours of volunteer work, and that was the most difficult one to get and they wanted your supervisor to provide a letter.

Luckily I was a volunteer person, during the past years, I have been volunteer (church, university, animal shelter and fundraising) in a lot of things, so I went back and asked the people to write me letter and to verify my work hours, so I need not to fullfill that experience.

And first they rejected me, so a week later I moved to NY from Texas, and
decided to go for boards anyway. Then they called me few weeks later, asked me whether I will take the offer, and I said no.


The requirements of PA programs are very versitile, you may need to locate a few target and fullfill their requirement really well.

Sorry, 2 corrections: the course I had name is " Introduction to psychology".

And I am no sure how many hours of volunteer or community work is required, but the more the better.
