  1. Hi all, Had a case tonight that my attending and I both felt a bit wishy washy on and wanted some (kind) opinions on. 45 yo male from the carribean presenting for R knee pain and swelling for 2 days. Also reports warmth to knee as well as chills/feeling feverish. No hx of IVDA. No trauma to the knee. No prior knee surgery. Xray showed large knee effusion and also some osteophyte formation. We were initially thinking along the lines of inflammatory secondary to possible OA. The effusion was actually more suprapatellar. Joint fluid I aspirated was yellowish/blood tinged but still somewhat clea
  2. Hi everyone, I graduated about 5 months ago and just started my job on January first in the ED (credentialing=longest process ever!). I was an A+ student during PA school, did well on rotations, etc. but I just feel like I am drowning and burdening my docs. This is the first time the ED I'm working in has PAs, and I am just trying to do my best because I want it to work out as I love my coworkers and I love the job.

  3. Anyone heard anything from the waitlist yet? I know they start orientation next week. I was told a few weeks ago we won't hear anything until the week of orientation (I'm guessing if someone drops or switches during the first week) but I'm dying to know, as PCOM is my first choice!
  4. Also, to anyone who interviewed-How was it? Would love to hear what it was like! Is it necessary for me to bring some kind of printed documentation of the patient care hours I've accumulated?
  5. I have an interview next Wednesday Oct. 8th. Does anyone know how close they are to filling all spots for the class? I'm so nervous, ha! Thanks!
