  10. I would do a rapid strep test. If that is neg, send a strep culture. If that is neg, refer to the ER. This concludes your Urgent Care work-up moment. :D :D :D

  12. PA Faculty at UC Davis taught and precepted medical students and residents for years. It was originally a grant funded position through Song-Brown. I got the first position in 1980. Later FNP and PA faculty formally taught the MS1 H and P course. Just for laughs, but my first salary out of school for that job was around $21,000.

  21. I'll be calling Monday to find out my spot and would be happy to ask Elise about this, I'll post here after I find out! Does anyone have any insight into the movement of the waitlist from previous years? Or any other information about it in general?

  25. So I’ve heard. I also live in Canada so maybe it’s just slower for me. Ahhhhhhh, hopefully nothing but good news at the end this waiting period. Thank you for the moral support!

  28. I think it’s around. From past threads people heard back 1-2 weeks after the last interview date (which was last Saturday) so thinking (and hoping) we all hear back next week. Not sure if it’s true, but I heard the committee was meeting this week for the decisions.

  29. I just got a call that I’ve been accepted off the waitlist. I already put down my deposit at another school but also love Arcadia’s program so am torn. Does anyone know if Arcadia is switching to virtual cadaver dissections for our class and no longer using Jeff’s campus? This is a big deciding factor for me

  32. Had the person said to me what they said to the OP, I'd likely respond "Well, then I take it that I won't be seeing you again anytime soon?" I didn't worry too much about patient satisfaction surveys - my waiting room was almost always full. I did used to get a lot of requests/demands for tests ordered by voodoopaths from folks - here the voodoopath can order the test, but it comes out of the patient's pocket, as it needs an actual licensed MD/PA/NP to order tests on the public's dime - in other words, there needs to be an actual reason to order them. If I had a nickel for every w

  33. Pretty sure you don't have a very clear idea of what hospital medicine involves. A patient is admitted with an acute problem. You then diagnose that problem. Then you treat it. Curious as to the last thora or paracentesis you did? Central line placed? And yeah, consultants are utilized just like in every other section of medicine. Except UC. Guess you guys just punt to the ED and have them manage everything beyond your scope. Don't want to get too deep in a pissing contest here but your statement is simply inflammatory and ridiculous. I can agree without a doubt that there is a significan

  34. I'm a supporter of the DMSc, but I wouldn't do a 36 month program to get it. If you do a 24 month program, you can get a job and then work on the DMSc while you're making money instead of waiting another year.

  35. I’d be careful about assuming what we do as hospitalist. Yes we use specialist, as does family medicine, ER and urgent care. Come work with us before you assume how easy it is.

  41. It is important to distinguish between biological sex--because that determines risk factors and how you counsel the patient--and gender identity. Just changing the patient's sex in an EMR because they're now presenting differently is not OK because of the negative impact to the patient's health and well being. And while I do agree with @sas5814 about approaching other posters positively, gender identity and sexual orientation are certainly not the same thing and anyone providing care needs to know that. I'm assuming Ral misspoke (mistyped?).

  42. Easy there snappy. One of the reasons these discussions can get difficult is because someone like you is wandering around with a giant chip on their shoulder waiting for a chance to be offended. How about you take some time to educate and share in a constructive way instead of provoking a fight.

  43. I think you're right, I didn't even notice that people were added to that group in 2017! I didn't get any email about a group yet, but I was just accepted off the waitlist yesterday

  44. You really only need something that allows you to download PPT's, watch video lectures. There are even students in my class without laptops and solely use iPads/Tablets.

  45. My advice: talk with the students in your program. Many programs assign you a "big" to give advice as to where to live, what books to buy, etc. Given the differing software environments, there may be some local pros and cons to consider. If you don't have a "big" assigned to you from the class ahead, call the program and ask if there is a student you could talk to about things like this.

  46. I start PA school in 5 months, and I am BEYOND ecstatic! However, I am also extremely nervous, as I have been out of school for about 2 years. I read the book "Surviving PA School: Secrets You Must Unlock to Excel as a PA Student," and I am working full time (as I support my family) until school starts. I am looking for any other advice for before school starts. I know many people discourage studying before hand, but I want to know if theres something I can do that my future self will thank me for. Thank everyone!

  47. Great question. I had the same one myself years ago. With 5 months you could put in a just few hours of study every week with plenty of time to rest and relax with family and still get a lot of benefit. I personally found physiology by far the most beneficial. Not just superficially cramming for a test like most people do in undergrad, but really internalizing it and knowing it backwards and forwards. Those physiology building blocks will come up time and time again in many parts of medicine (diagnosis, pharmacology, toxicology, critical care, etc); many classmates had to relearn physiolo

  48. If you can afford it, stay nearer to school. You can focus on your job, study in the middle of the night, or go back in to review things with your study team (if that's how you work.) I met a woman several years ago who actually rented a room just a few blocks from her family home so she could study better; she referred to it as her "study cave." Then go home on the weekends and reconnect. If you can't afford it, then stay at home, recognizing that there is a cost to that as well. Best wishes.
