  3. This has red flags all over it. I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. I would rather sleep in a tent because I promise this is going to cause you a lot of mental anguish later. Can almost guarantee he is going to fail on several promises, you're going to quit or get fired, you're going to come back to this board asking what to do, we are going to shrug and tell you to move on best you can.

  9. I would expect movement closer to mid-November and throughout December. Many people are still waiting to hear back from their top choices. Places Like UTHSCSA don't give out notifications until much later, and they even interview through January. I can tell you we pulled someone from the waitlist literally on the first day of orientation at UMHB. A bit were pulled from the list throughout November/December, for the reasons mentioned above. Hang tight and have faith!

  12. To me, it wouldn't be the dollar amount, it would be the principle. I would send an email outlining what is owed to you and a date you expect the payment received (say end of month). Include in email if payment is not received you will be making a formal complaint to the state labor board. Consider this bridge already burnt, if they have treated you this way I don't know why you would ever expect a good recommendation from them.

  13. if the PTO was an earned benefit your state might well be able to help. Talk to them (it might be wage theft) and NO employer wants the state digging around their books The rest of it, well just move on....

  14. The doc is thinking of you as a resident but not offering you a residency. OJT does NOT equal a residency. No off-shift rotations, no protected time for learning, no journal club, no grand rounds, probably not even a high volume high acuity academic center. The compensation is slightly low to start and the growth in compensation significantly undershoots your growth in contribution to the practice. Unless this is the only offer you can get, go elsewhere.

  15. This is an insulting offer. Probably one of the worst on the forum in years, and that’s a high mark to clear.

  16. Wow! I just had my interview with UTMB, and it was such a positive experience. For anyone interviewing next month, I think everyone's advice on here so far has been 100% right. Be yourself, and trust the process! Also, side note, the people who I met in the interview room were all sweet and so genuine which really helped with the interview nerves. (If any of you guys are here) Thank yall for that! Congrats to everyone who's gotten an acceptance!!! You guys are going to be amazing PAs!

  20. I had to read that 4 or 5 times because it was so.......stupid. As Lt says there is an entire drill team of red flags all over the place. Who gives a rats hairy butt what he got paid as a resident? 1099 for that lousy pay? That is functionally about $37/hr because you are liable for 100% of your withholding. The "benefits" offered...aren't. In short this is someone who will work you like a slave and give you nothing in return. If it isn't in writing it doesn't exist so the promise you'll get a share of the reward later is worth the paper its printed on....nothing. I had an old friend start a cards practice with a guy he liked and trusted. I told him to get everything in a signed contract before he started. Long story short he didn't and about 2 years later he was termed from the practice he helped build from scratch and was replaced by the cards buddy...also a cardiologist. A wise man learn from his mistakes. A genius learns from someone else's. Run...... run fast....run far....don't look back.

  21. True Story A PA called me to ask about a practice I had left. Scariest place I have ever been in and I am so disappointed in my own Spidey Sense that I didn't pick up on it before I took the job. PA called me to ask about the practice - had seen my name on their website. The ONLY thing I said to this PA - "After my conversation with the State Attorney General's office about this practice - I am not able to make any comments". Same practice listed on my resume... Asked by a new employer if they could contact. I checked NO on the box. They asked. I said the same thing as above. They never asked another question. Cut your losses. Run, learn, improve, ask more questions.

  24. No she didn’t. She just mentioned that the faculty are still reviewing apps and will be sending invites this week. I read somewhere that their last round of interviews is in November but I’m not sure.

  27. Tell them you'd like to give them one more chance to resolve this amicably, but if you can't you will contact the labor board. There's no sense having to pay for a lawyer if you can get a state lawyer to fong them for free.

  30. ISU is interesting with the file score. I agree with you Ocean that it is odd in a way, however every school has a similar system of combining parts of an application to rank candidates. What makes ISU different is that they are completely transparent about it. I haven't seen a single other program be as transparent about how candidates are evaluated and ranked.

  31. EM in the midwest seems to have mostly recovered. Volumes are back. However, sites, especially ones staffed by the big 3 staffing companies haven't fully restored staffing levels. There's still a lot of flogging the troops to see more patients. There are job openings, in increasing numbers, but for experienced providers. The new grad job market has improved from no openings to some but not many.

  33. His framing it as a residency and comparing it to his is absolutely atrocious. As a resident he got full benefits and once completed had an absolutely massive pay increase along with being a fully independent provider. It is simply not the same as a PA. Good luck on your job search but please don’t take this one.

  34. Danger, Will Robinson, Danger NO PTO OR SICK UNTIL ONE YEAR - hell, no. You will get sick or your kids. FIVE YEAR contract - wow, no Surgical Assist? Do you get your surg assist fees? We called that eating what we killed. On call for local ERs? If not, why? Pay for your license? DEA required - that alone is $881 every 3 yrs. I have found that some docs still working solo instead of part of a group - well, perhaps they have behavior or practice issues that make them not play well with others. Perhaps they think they can run the business "better" and with less overhead. Usually not what happens. Never had a PA before? How long in practice? Why? Ever been part of a larger group? Does the doctor's spouse or s.o. work ANYWHERE in the practice? If yes, just run, don't walk - RUN. Did you look up his/her license at state level for citations? Any hx of malpractice? How stable is the office staff? Turnover? Who does what? Are they licensed? Equipment in the office? Safe, new, monitored and maintenanced? Work weekends? Holidays paid? What happens if he/she up and takes 2 weeks off in your first year? Do you get paid? Lots of lack of infrastructure and guidance in small practices or solo practices. Beware pitfalls and bad business habits. Sorry to come across as pessimistic. I prefer to call it cautious and once bitten.

  37. Paramedic education and experience is very different than PA school. I graduated from a university based paramedic program years before entering PA school. Medic school had covered about 85% of the cardiology module, especially EKG interpretation, though not the meds for managing chronic conditions, some of the respiratory module, some of the EM module, and little else. PA school is rapid presentation of massive amounts of material, often with less depth that those topics covered in medic school. Also, in medic school we had lots of repetition and practice - almost none in PA school. Though doing OSCE's by memorizing checklists was a lot like prepping for National Registry skill stations. In particular, exams that prepare you for PANCE are very different than the exams you had in medic school.. The questions on PA school exams are much more complicated vs the direct recall questions often found on medic school exams.

  40. Congrats to everyone who has interviewed or been accepted! I am interviewing November 13th and had a few quick questions: 1. Are they still doing the same 2 on 1 format ( Faculty + student/alumni interviewing us)? and is it still a blind interview? 2. About how long/how many questions did they ask? 3. Is it traditional style? Any behavioral/ethical type questions? Any insight you can provide is so appreciated. Thank you!!!

  44. I emailed Judy Dickman about this on December 4th (I interviewed on December 3rd). I said: "...I subsequently heard from other students/applicants that the class had already been filled several weeks ago and all applicants currently interviewing will automatically be placed on the waitlist, and I wanted to reach out to confirm whether this is true. If so, when can applicants on the waitlist expect to begin hearing back as accepted students give up their seats?" And her response was: "Yes, we have started putting together our accept/hold list and will be pulling from it as accepted applicants withdraw." She also said that she has no idea when they will begin pulling from the waitlist since it depends on when accepted students give up their seats. Makes sense, I just wish they had been more upfront with us about the fact that we were interviewing for waitlist spots!

  45. I emailed Judy and she told me that I am on the accept/hold list. Pretty bummed especially this is my top choice program. If anyone could give me any insight into this especially in terms of the number of people that on average get pulled from the list that would be great! Also, congratulations to everyone who has gotten accepted!

  46. I have been waitlisted from my interview last week and Ms. Dickman said she will keep me posted... But I want to tell anyone questioning their stats to not lose hope! Although my application is pretty solid my GRE is 292 (horrible I know) but I feel like it is irrelevant to me as an applicant.. I have been accepted somewhere else and I’m super grateful that NOVA even considered me. Anyways, goodluck to everyone this cycle and don’t lose hope!!

  47. Also! No dress code for class. You can show up in sweatpants if you want and no one will care. Lectures are recorded. So if that's something that helps you study, it's pretty clutch. Class size is 60 people. So we're not the biggest program, but also not the smallest. With that being said, we're super diverse in terms of race/ethnicity, home states, ages, PCE experience...etc. A lot of the class is from the DMV area, but we've also got plenty of people from the northeast, west coast, and midwest. I'd say the average age is 25-26, but we've got some folks as young as 23, and others in their early 40s. Some even have spouses/fiances and kids. The diversity of PCE really comes in handy because we emphasize collaboration. On the first day of orientation Dr. Wright made it very clear that the competition is over. We're all in the same program, working toward the same goal, and it's important that we rely on each other to achieve that. We've got EMTs/Paramedics who are pros at reading EKGs so they offer to help out when someone may be struggling. We've got a sonographer with a lot of ultrasound experience so he has volunteered his own time to lead sessions to teach us those. We have folks with master's degrees in Anatomy, Physiology and Biochem so they're great when it comes time to study for those exams... and the list goes on!
