  1. The only program I know of at RIH/Brown is the emergency medicine physician extender residency. The program is open to PAs and NPs.
  2. I was wondering the same thing myself.

    New DMSc program in Oregon

    The website says that the degree is in “PA Medicine”. What is P.A. Medicine?

    The midwife program is a direct entry midwife program not a nurse midwife program. No nursing degree needed to get in and no nursing degree awarded when you get out. Graduates are eligible for licensing in a number of states as midwives but not nurse midwives (I.e. APRNs). I believe that midwives in some states have limited prescribing but not 100% sure on that.

    There are only 5 Naturopathic Medical Schools in the US If any of them have combined ND/NP programs they are not advertising them on their websites. As far as being naturopaths being able to call themselves physicians they may be able to do that in some states but not all. Two stated specifically prohibit them from calling themselves physicians and from claiming to be primary care providerse

    1099 tax deductions for 2018

    I agree tha $50 per visit is a recipe for failure. I did the 1099 thing up until about 15 years ago and when I guit I was charging $100 per hour and seeing 2 to 4 patients per hour. It is an absolute must that you get yourself a CPA and form a corporation. Without a corporation most of the deductions mentioned go away patients an hour
  7. There was a program like this at the U of Kentucky that folded after about 3 years. I was told that the logistics of coordinating the 2 curriculums and clinical competencies were just to much snd that only 1 of the students who completed the program followed through and took the PANCE. Don't know how many graduated but it couldn't have been that many. To me this seems like, "We have really great solution here. Now if we can just find a problem for it." Interesting that the U of Rhode Island would partner with a PA program that is on probation.
  8. If a candidate ever asked me one of the suggested questions the interview would end right there. And to suggest that candidates "talk tourself up" is nonsense. Shows a complete lack of integrity. I'm lookiing for someone who can complete the program and become a PA not a used car salesperson
