  1. Yeah, that's what I meant, I just changed it. So the group uses an occurrence based plan. When it was explained to me, I understood it as it does not matter when the malpractice claim is submitted but I will be covered if it occurred while I was working. So I was told I do not need tail coverage due to this type of plan
  2. There is no bonus, at least for the first year. When i asked, they said that they might begin to implement it next year. From what I know, its 40 hours a week. Obviously it might be some hours over that but when i spoke with the other PAs they said their weeks are usually 40 hours. Thanks for the reply

  4. Have been wanting to post something in this thread for a long time. The group is in rural Virginia with 3 ortho surgeons right now, 4th is in negotiation. I would only work with one of them in the OR and office $105,000 Annual Salary Annual wRVU Bonus Potential / $25.85 per wRVU generated after 2321 $5,000 Relocation Assistance $5,000 Recruitment Bonus paid on the first payroll check upon commencement of employment Student Loan Repayment of 500.00 per month for 36 months PTO accrual of 5.54 hours per pay period / 18 days per year Extended Illness Bank of 2.15 hours per pay period / 7 days per year 40 Hours of CME with up to $2,000 in reimbursement cost Licensing and Credentialing Fees including PA License, Prescriptive Authority, DEA License & Medical Liability Insurance.

Also, if anyone has any advice on how to inform other groups I've interviewed with of this offer, I would appreciate it. I've followed up with all of the groups and they are wrapping up interviews this coming week. Would like to let them know that I have received an offer but don't want them to take me off their list. Thank you
  5. Thank you everyone for your input. I'll make sure to ask my professors all these questions and see if their opinions are the same
  6. I do get multiple elective rotations and the international one would be in this category. So I would potentially be able to do an ortho rotation in the US and in England. I am not in any situation like that but I just thought it would be interesting to experience medicine in a different country. Maybe I'll just reconsider this idea based on the responses I am getting.
  7. Had a question for anyone that is currently in their 2nd year or for anyone in the field of orthopedics. My school is offering a rotation in England with a concentration in orthopedics. I am very interested in going but I am wondering how employers will look at this. As of now, I'm thinking i want to go into ortho after graduation but am worried that an employer will wonder why I did an ortho rotation somewhere other than the US. Would anyone be able to share some insight or their opinion? I would really appreciate it. Thanks
  8. I am also in the current class of 2018, and i really can't imagine there being an "unsafe" area anywhere around LMU. Our professors do everything they can to help facilitate our learning and the experience you get here can be matched with any other program, in my opinion. Then again, everyone has their own experience i guess
  9. Paadmissions, I had a question regarding retaking a pre-req but have a complicated situation. At my university we have a semester class for only anatomy and a separate semester class for physiology. I did not do too well in anatomy so i wanted to retake it. The state college near me only offer anatomy and physiology 1 and anatomy and physiology 2. As an admissions officer looking at my application, if i only took A&P 1 would that suffice for my poor anatomy grade? Thank you for your help.
  10. Does anyone know of any schools in Florida with online Pathophysiology or Immunology?
  11. Dear Admissions Director, I am in a spot where i am kind of confused on how to strengthen my application. I have received 2 C's in my pre-req work and was thinking of retaking those courses but on the other hand i also wanted to take some very specific science courses (such as immunology and pathology). I would like to ask you which course of action an admissions director would rather see. Thank you for your time
