Amy Bouhabib is a biological sciences major. She learned about the physician assistant profession at the ASU Summer Health Institute during her junior year of high school.
During her time at Arizona State University, Bouhabib volunteered as an EMT to gain patient care hours, worked as a scribe for more experience in a clinical setting, and was a leader in student organizations like the Physician Assistant Club.
Her advice to current pre-health students is: "First evaluate why you are choosing the profession you are striving for because the path to becoming a PA is not easy. Having a solid reason gave me the motivation to continue succeeding in challenging classes and work."
Bouhabib applied to nine physical assistant programs and was accepted to the University of Colorado during her junior year. She will start in July 2019.
