Facilitators Needed for May 10 PA Virtual Fair

PAEA is looking for facilitators for our next virtual fair, taking place on May 10.

A virtual fair is an online recruitment event where attendees visit chat rooms hosted by PAEA and PA programs that choose to participate. It’s an ideal way to interact with a whole new generation of curious PA applicants. PAEA hosts a “general PA information” chat room, where attendees can talk with facilitators about different aspects of the profession. With your help, we can ensure potential PA students have access to the information they need. 

Our plan is to host live presentations from students, practitioners, and educators in our general information chat room, which is where you, the volunteer facilitator, come in. We’re seeking five to 10 presenters throughout the day who would be willing to host a 15–30-minute webinar or Q&A session on a topic of their choice. Some possible topics could include (but are not limited to): 

  • What PA school is like 
  • Tips for prospective applicants 
  • Post-graduation steps 
  • PA work life 
  • Virtual interview tips 
  • Incorporating JEDI principles on campus or admissions 
  • Another topic about which you are passionate 

Global majority or international PA students/educators/practitioners are highly encouraged to volunteer for this opportunity. 

Prefer not to present? That’s fine. We would still love to have you help facilitate the chat anytime between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET. You can participate for 30 minutes or for all 12 hours — no time is too short! Or, if your program is interested in hosting its own room, please register here. 

If you would like to participate at any time on May 10 or if you can volunteer to take on a similar role at the July 15 Virtual Fair, email Heather Storm at by Monday, May 1. Please include the time(s) you are available, and she will get you scheduled.
