Taking a gap year and working at Crutchfield Dermatology before PA school was extremely beneficial to my learning experience! Working closely with patients and getting familiar with the health system is a skill that set me apart in the application process. Dr. Crutchfield was always sure to involve me in any interesting cases or new learning opportunities that occurred daily. Working directly with Dr. Crutchfield gave him the familiarity to write a powerful recommendation letter. 

The rest of the staff members were so supportive and shared application experiences and suggestions freely. They were always flexible when I needed to take time off for an interview. 

Working at Crutchfield Dermatology reinforced my decision to pursue a career in medicine. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
