I interviewed for PA at UofT May 1st. 

1) Honours Bachelor of Physical Health and Education (Health Promotion) and MSc in Exercise Physiology.

2) 9 years as a Kinesiologist, mostly working with cardiac and pulmonary rehab patients in an outpatient hospital department. Also a part-time professor at a local college for a number of years. Experience with injured workers, low income/homeless population and disabled individuals. I'm also francophone and from Northern Ontario. Research experience through my MSc for my own thesis and helping out other students with their projects.

3) GPA - 3.74 in my undergrad.

4) First time applying, the suspense is unbearable!!

Good luck everyone! I heard rumors at the interview that we may find out before May 15th, fingers crossed!

Just got an offer of admission via email at 12:02!!! They sent a recall email afterwards, but I called to confirm that it was due to a technical issue and not taking back any offers sent out. Good luck everyone!!

Sweet! I was quite excited when I got my offer and then felt a bit crushed when I saw that recall email. Lots of rejections over the years from medical schools etc, so feels quite good to get an acceptance. Hopefully see you in Toronto in September!

I've been working full time for almost 7 years as a Kinesiologist for a hospital rehab department, so that's probably over 10 000 hours. I'm a case manager for patients with heart and lung conditions, taking medical histories, consulting with physicians, prescribing and leading exercise programs, doing exercise testing, etc. This is very much a second career and so I didn't get this job or get my undergrad (BPHE) with PA in mind, but it served me well for applying to this program. Hope that's helpful!

I also had a lot of hours 10,000+, although more in social services, but I had to administer medications, arrange appointments, and I was the medication coordinator for a group home with about 15 employees. Keep trying Samy. The longer you work in the healthcare field the more experience you get and it also gives you something to draw on for the MMI. I used actual situations or experiences from my occupation for at least half my answers.

Hello Charles all the best!!! I believe they may send a wait list, it is a possibility. I called them this morning and they have said they would continue to send till Friday. My health care hours are not so competitive so I believe I need to gather more and apply third time next year and so on till they take me lol :)

My health hours are around 990 only which is very less as compared to competitive and eligible candidates 10,000+.

I hope that this info is helpful.
