Working for UAS in the Gap Year Program helped strengthen my medical school primary and secondary applications and gave me the real-world experience needed in my interviews. Through this job, I formed strong and lasting relationships with the providers and medical support staff in my office, gained exposure to a wide range of patients, and furthered my understanding of the medical field through first-hand experiences. Managing my own patient schedule also gave me the flexibility to take time off to attend interview and second look weekends. UAS was supportive at every level in my path to attending medical school, and I am very grateful for the Gap Year Program!

Since being with UAS I have seen allergen immunotherapy make such a difference in the lives of many patients. I have watched patients who struggled to play sports because of their allergies become more able to do so! It is amazing to see children more able to do the things they love without their allergies interfering! I am grateful to be able to help give those patients a better quality of life!

I have worked with UAS for 2 years and it has brought me joy to get multiple positive feedbacks from patients. I see them improve along the way of their treatment. They always feel so happy to see me “uncommon for people to react this way when they know they are receiving a shot”. I have had patients tell me they are so happy because now they can perform the things they love to do without feeling sick. Some will even mention they will follow me wherever I go. Even though I cannot take all my patients with me everywhere I go, it makes me feel good they have trust in me. I have seen it really works its wonders.

I have worked for UAS for almost 8 years now and could not be more grateful for the opportunities I have had to learn, help patients and grown in my own career development! UAS provides such a valuable service to patients suffering with allergies and to physician partners who desire to help their patients live healthy, happy lives. Seeing patients feel better as they actually treat their allergies rather than just mask them with medications, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people! The teams are truly like family and so supportive. We make a difference every day in what we do and we do it together and that has been such a wonderful thing to get to be a part of for the last 8 years. No job will be 100% perfect all of the time, but I truly believe UAS is one of the best companies to work for!

I am a fairly new CAS to UAS. I started in December 2019. So far, the company has been more than welcoming. The POD that I am apart of is such a tight knit POD and someone is always there when I have a question. My CS is amazing! She has built up my confidence in being a new CAS and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me! I am also a patient of UAS as well. The CAS that has been overseeing me has been so informative and it is wonderful to be able to relate to my patients on the same level as well. I can share with them my journey and use my experiences to help answer any questions they have and help was any doubts that they have. I am only one month in, but I can already tell that this will be a great tool to help my clinic grow as well!

During my time with UAS as a Clinical Allergy Specialist, I gained valuable experience that enhanced my journey to medical school. My interactions with patients, healthcare providers, and UAS colleagues allowed me to gain new perspectives on healthcare while improving lives of our patients. As a future physician, I aspire to improve the quality of healthcare by providing patient-focused care to my patients; I truly believe that my role as a CAS allowed me to lay the groundwork for the humane practice of medicine that I hope to carry out in my future career.

As a Clinical Allergy Specialist, I have gained phenomenal experience that I believe will make me a stronger medical school applicant. Before joining the company, I worked as a medical scribe in several different specialties, but the hands-on experience and valuable interactions as a CAS remain unmatched. Working directly with patients, multiple providers, as well as fellow CAS, has allowed me to view medicine from a vast number of perspectives and understand that no two patients nor providers are alike. In addition to my clinical experience, the GAP year program at UAS provides tools to strength your application for profession schools. The reimbursement program has been my best friend, as I can invest in myself with quality study materials and not worry about being able to afford it. I have truly enjoyed my time here at UAS, and I am very excited and confident about applying to medical school this spring.
