  1. Hey guys, I'm conflicted regarding a position offered to me for a Hospitalist positions via a staffing company. My concerns are: They are about to hire me and I never actually had an interview, met any supervising doctor, been able to even shadow. There is just 2-3 days of "shadowing/training" AFTER I sign up with the group. The program is growing and the salary is above the national average >120K (14 shifts/month 12 hr each/nights/swing), 1.5K CME, 3 weeks vacation 1 week sick, flimsy medical/dental, and claim to have malpractice w/tail. No cap on the census w/ lots of admits
  2. Thank you, everyone, for posting. I just sent out my application today.
  3. Sounds like a pretty good offer. Do you get overtime if you are needed for an extra shift here and there? Also find out if they provide some free CMEs with grand rounds.

Can you take a history, do the physical, write the note without signing it or making any orders in the interim? These are the same things that we do as students during clinical year.

    NJ License

    NJ is a really bad state for PA's. The process takes 90-120 days. I have met PA's for whom the process took 5 MONTHS! There no longer is a temporary license offered.
  6. I'm in my last few months of PA school and was wondering if anyone knows if PA's are permitted to perform procedures such as EGD, Colonoscopy, ERCP...?
  7. What do you guys think about a 39 min commute : 45 min with moderate traffic- with a distance of 30 Miles?
  8. What's the point of the fluff classes of mind body spirit in the curriculum. Sounds like quackery. There should be more sciences. This is not to discount the humane side of medicine.
  9. If you want to see exceptionally rude administration, try to talk with the pcom administrators. They really treat you like a zero. (Not even a real number)
  10. Does anyone have any insight in the school, program, and the Amherst area?
  11. Confidence in yourself is you mental suit.
