    • I would have to think that outside of the Education realm, an MHA or MBA would be more valuable to the PA who wanted to rise in the administrative sphere. All would be mostly useless to the PA who just wants to treat patients....YMMV.
    • Depends on the organization/practice.  Some places are very quick, others can take a while.  Make sure you keep reminding them in a pleasant way.   Also, make sure to argue for your raise being retroactive to your one year anniversary, especially if it takes months to process.
    • I think they took the name from the Army Baylor Fellowship programs in Emergency Medicine and Clinical orthopedics. The degrees granted are DSc PA EM or DSc CO. These are accompanied by 18 month fellowships with 3000ish clinical hours, probably more as most folks who I spoke with say they are pulling 60-80 hour week on average. That being said everyone I have seen who has graduated used DSc EM or DSc CO in their signature line.
    • Same here, only one in mine, so had to call as he does not specifically represent my district, but the staff said it was Ok and they would pass along my concerns. Also just called one in a state I used to live in and they were receptive, so I may try all.
