  1. Regarding the issue of inter-racial couples, Austin is a super liberal city ( more so than San Francisco), so I doubt that would be a problem unless one of you is from Saturn and the other from Andromeda. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. Not hard but, typically, asking you to defend one position or another. You can't really prepare for it. It helps if you are up-to-date with current events. If you know the rules for making and defending an argument, you should be ok. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  3. In the days before social media, we just spoke to each other, usually face to face but, sometimes, by phone. You might have just informed them, in person, at your next scheduled study group. You could have told them you enjoyed your time with them and just add that study group is taking too much time and you need to study alone in the future. Shudder the day when a patient gets this text: "Mr. Jones, sorry but your scans show several large tumors on your brain. I am referring you to an oncologist, Dr. Smith, whose office will call you to set up an appt. Click on the link below to learn more about your condition.Cheers, Dr. Green" Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    CAQ

    A CAQ doesn't give you more letters to add to your title, eg PA-C, CAQ, and it has no license benefits so it doesn't make you more indepemdent. As a result, you need to promote it. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    CAQ

    I believe that is because most employers have no idea what the CAQ is and therefore ascribe no value to it. It may help more in finding a new job where you might have the opportunity to explain it. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  6. Good luck to you! Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  7. I'm not sure. Is this question a joke? There have been married PAS (females) on this forum who got pregnant and had two kids during PA school. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  8. Just make sure you know what Aleppo is and you will be fine. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  9. I know others who came out feeling pretty bad. They passed. Just don't sweat it until you find out. I think most PAs sweat pance too much. More than 90% pass the first time. Unless you did poorly in didactic or your EOR exams, chances are you passed. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  10. Not a bad person in my opinion. Men who want Viagra or Cialis shouldn't be wasting ED time to get it. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  11. I can understand the concern of some PA-Cs that the CAQ could become a new standard that you must have to qualify for a job. Advanced qualifications exist in many professions, however, but don't exclude others from all the good jobs. An advantage of the CAQ is that it is specific to PAs and can actually give PAs some job preference (over NPs for example.) Hopefully, a CAQ would never be used to get rid of an older employee with experience, but I don't know. CAQs also don't seem to be especially difficult or expensive to get. In my understanding, the option to earn a CAQ is an advantage to PAs. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  12. The 40% is a general rule of thumb. You could do your own calculation by looking at the cost of vacation and holiday pay, your LLC's cost of soc.sec. and Medicare taxes, sick leave, malpractice insurance, health care insurance, CME costs, licensing and any other costs normally paid by an employer. You may well find that 40% is not enough. State and local taxes are not generally paid by an employer, but you need to look at Florida's total tax burden, including property taxes, sales taxes and business taxes. I have no idea what that amounts to. My daughter just graduated in Texas and two of her colleagues were offered EM jobs at $65/hr as employees. My daughter is going to do a fellowship, so her pay isn't relevant. Admittedly, I don't know the Florida market but $56/hr seems low for an independent contractor. Maybe someone else can chime in here. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. Lots of "PA" jobs in CA are listed as NP due to the strong nursing lobby. You might want to see if an NP wrote the job description and if other "mid-levels" (hate that term) in the practice are all NPs. Politics may exclude you. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  14. I understand you can get a CA licence pretty fast compared to, for example, Texas. But you need the state license to apply for DEA. Additional delay. Will that be a problem? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. You can wear anything you want to an interview, including shorts, T-shirt and sandals. Just remember that part of the interview is to evaluate how you handle yourself as a professional. That includes, how you present yourself. If you dont shave, wear board shorts, have full body tattoos and lots of facial piercings, that's one image. I would recommend a more professional look. But that's just me. A suit or even a collegiate look ( nice slacks, shirt and tie and jacket can be fine). Consider the weather and location. Can't help you ladies. I know what looks professional but probably couldn't describe it. Just avoid excessive bling, anything provacative or too much make up. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
