When the question arises as to whether is there a need for a website to be developed exclusively for the students of University of Medicine and Dentistry, NJ, we shall consider a number of factors to justify the development of the website.
The primary reason that justifies the development of this website is that this site will be a useful source of information not only for the students of NJ but also for the professionals of the locality. As far as the matter of developing a website specifically for the students of NJ is concerned, this website will focus specifically on the issues that are creating challenges and bringing opportunities to the physician assistants in the New Jersey area. As the challenges, opportunities and a number of other issues vary from state to state because of difference of government legislations, it is necessary to separately address the issues of PAs working in NJ.
While considering the pros and cons of developing a website like this, one hardly finds any disadvantage of implementing such a useful project which is expected to benefit the community as a whole, improve the quality of medical care education and practice and provide a platform to the Physician Assistant students of New Jersey. One of the major advantages of this site will be, as discussed before, that it will serve as a very useful resource for gathering information on the profession and to get accurate and up-to-date knowledge in a timely manner. Another major advantage will be that it will allow its members to share each other's knowledge, experiences and observations which will help the students as well as the professionals to widen their knowledge base and will allow them to provide highest possible quality of health service.
At present there are a number of Physician Assistant Student organizations operating online as the concept of forming an online platform for professionals, whether they are Physician Assistants or any other professionals, is gaining popularity. The AAPA itself recommends the SAAPA i.e. The Student Academy of Physician Assistants. At present there are about twenty nine societies operating online which are registered by the American Association of Physical Assistants. The list is expected to grow further in future.
The student societies, as is that of the University of Medicine and Dentistry NJ, have proved to be very useful not only to the students of these universities but also the universities themselves. These website are a very productive promotional tool for the Physical Assistant programs of these universities and can help in a great deal in educating and attracting the potential students of the University. Moreover, the website will also be a means of getting recent and up-to-date information on the latest events taking place in the University. This will help the university to develop a stronger and effective alumni base of its graduates which will benefit the university in the long-term. In addition to this, it will help the currently enrolled students to access and read the public notices and announcements online which will ensure the delivery of announcements to almost all the students in the university. This was not possible in the old traditional approach as sometimes students used to forget reading the announcements or missed the announcements posted on the announcement boards.
