I am currently a rural primary care PA in KY and am considering a move to CO to be near family members in the Parker, Broomfield areas. I have visited the front range area many many times and I dont know if I could deal with the traffic and congestion. I would be interested in more rural areas - treating indigent patients, etc - but would need to be within 1.5 hours of either DIA or Colorado Springs airport for my DH's job travel requirements.
I would appreciate any advice/insight on the PA job market in the more rural areas.
Hey my brother lives in Colorado and I am thinking of moving there as well. A really good resource is http://coruralhealth.org/programs/cpr/
It is essentially a recruitment program from the Colorado Rural Health Center. There is a provider interview form on this page. It was awhile ago but I'm pretty sure that is what I filled out and very helpful person contacted me via email with opportunities and was a great resource. Colorado has a really good state loan repayment program if you still have loans.
Foley - thanks for the website information - I have had those pages bookmarked for some time and have been lurking on them
I have also been on the Colorado PA's website - looks like Colorado PA's have less restrictions than we do in KY.
