  1. So some clarification. Talked to the doc it is 20k/year if I breached contract. Most of his contracts are 3 years. Additionally, If I was every laid off he would pay me 20k per year for the remainder of my contract. Ironically enough talking to anther PA who works here he said that he would not trust that as the doc has a great lawyer who would wiggle his way out of paying me. So alas these are red flags for sure.
  2. Okay it wasn't just me, talked to the doc and he made this sound so normal. I understand that recruiting for rural jobs can be tough but that seemed like quite the penalty. Early on in discussions but wanted to get some outsider perspective. Thanks EMED
  3. Hey hey, I am in roughly 5 months from graduation and starting to discuss employment with one of the Docs who owns a private family practice in rural CO. From the sounds of it he pays his PAs well (my preceptor is making ~$130K with 5 years of experience and a M-Th schedule, sees 20-22 pts per day, good benefits yada-yada). Something my preceptor mentioned was that if he exits his contract early he has to pay the practice $40K per year for the years left on his contract. This makes me quite nervous. I have no problem signing a 3 year contract as a new grad but the thought of paying the practice that kind of money if I leave early terrifies me. My questions is... is this normal?
  4. It was nice meeting those who I got a chance to talk with today! I had fun giving a tour and chatting about why CU is the best program out there ;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes unfortunately Oct 20th is the last interview for this year! But good luck to all of you that are planning on coming! :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. UC Denver - 36 month-ish program, 1st year: begin May - summer break (2.5 weeks) - fall semester - winter break (5 weeks) - spring quarter - summer break (6 weeks spread over summer clinicals) 2nd year - similar pattern 3rd year - only clinical rotations... We start clinical rotations in the first year! And we get to hit material more than once also it's not crammed down our throats. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. A little bit more info... There will be 4-36 person interviews, also the first interview group is chosen already (don't think Kay has emailed you all yet)!! And today they are doing a run through of the interview process as a staff. Additionally the MMI interview is based off the Peace Corps - so possibly research it based off that. I also heard that ya'll will get tablets as groups to think through problems! Super cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I did too but this past quarter has shown me that Khan doesn't quite cover anatomy to the level of detail we need to know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Agreed: sending emails does not count as reaching out to your LOR writer. If you are not getting a response, find another way to contact her/him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 1st: sorry @Jdizzl11 slammed with exams lately so I haven't had anytime to re-research your query. 2nd - @rallen - while I can not specifically give you a time line, what I can tell you for sure is that it will be a much shorter interview process which WILL NOT spread into December, they are planning on doing 5-30 person MMI's or 4-35-ish (you do the math) to stop interviews from going on so late. As far as when they will begin - no true answers there, but most likely a little later than usual due to the massive quantity of applications received! However a little birdie already said they have some interviewees already chosen (not all). Super exciting! Can't wait to meet you all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. While on campus I heard some pretty exciting rumors (from a reliable source) about interviews this year!! It seems CU is switching to a "MMI" style interview modeled after MEDEX. Additionally they are saying that the interviewees will be told that same evening whether or not they were: selected, denied, or wait listed!!! So those interested in the interviews should glean information of the University of Washington MEDEX page! Good luck! Ps they have 2800 applicants already! ???? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Shameless University of Colorado plug... CU Does, it's a year long and is creditless (so it doesn't cost any more $) additionally you can do rotations in a Spanish speaking country (without being in the global track) and if you choose to they include a 1/2or3 week Spanish course (based your fluency in Spanish) in the country where you go for the rotation.
