COVID-19 Donations and Resources

As the world comes to terms with the reality facing our global community, we must act responsibility to support our doctors and protect our communities by any means necessary. Thank you to all of those who are risking their lives to treat patients during these tumultuous times.

Donate Masks in Los Angeles

Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi has initiated a campaign to donate N95 masks and face shields for our ICU doctors and nurses in Los Angeles. They need our help as they battle the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds will be used to order protective gear for our 1st responders.

Donate to the WHO

Your donation to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund supports the World Health Organization’s global efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Donations support efforts to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments. We’re all in this fight together. The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund is powered by the UN Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation.

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

8 Tips For The PA Application Process

1. Apply early. It is always a good idea to apply early. Applying early can help you avoid delays, allow for timely processing and improve your chances of being admitted to schools using rolling admissions. Rolling admissions means your application will be evaluated in the order received. This alone can increase your chances of securing a seat since most PA programs have very limited seats. 2. Volunteer as much as you can, medical and non-medical. I cannot emphasize enough how important patient care and volunteer hours are. Simply put, the more healthcare and volunteer experience you have the higher your chances to receive an interview. Not only will you be able to impress the application committee and be able to answer those “random challenging” interview questions, but also you will be more prepared for PA school.
