    • I get it if there is no bed available, or if a hospital is only allowed to take voluntary...this is the PURPOSE of the doc-to-doc call (to ensure patient is going to correct place).  I am talking about when all that is done (bed placement done, nurse-to-nurse done, etc) and I'm waiting hours for the doc to call me back.

      EMTALA doesn't JUST apply to EDs.  It also applies to on-call specialists.  Hospitals get EMTALA violations all the time because their on-call specialist.  Isn't one of the EMTALA requirement for on-call specialists to call back within reasonable timeframe?  Can you imagine having a STEMI in a community/rural hospital and waiting 6 hours for the cardiologist to call you back to accept (yes, I understand the hyperbole here, but I thought this was what EMTALA was for).

      It's so bad where I am at that one of the main psych hospitals started saying they won't even DO doc-to-doc calls.  I said I'm not transferring the patient without a doc-to-doc because I'm not paying the $25K personal fine.
    • Hi, I am a foreign medical graduate, unable to relocate due to family commitments. I am looking for online options. Is it worth to earn a degree that is not participating in CASPA application cycle 2017-2018?
    • I agree but to a certain extent. Applying early is truly beneficial when the school offers rolling admissions. For instance, I applied to 4 schools that do not look at any applications until after their deadline so applying early put me at no advantage and possibly at a disadvantage (I rushed a few things on my app). With that being said I think it is of utmost importance to start CASPA ASAP. Open it the very first day it  and play around with it, fill out what you can and make sure you understand how it works in terms of LOR's, PS and recording your experiences. I wish someone would've told me that beforehand and if someone did I wish I listened... lol
