  1. Thanks everyone. I went ahead and voluntarily resigned them, that seemed the best option. I'm also not in the same specialty I was in when I had those credentials. It'll just be a pain to do the whole 90-120 days credentialing process if I did want to work at that hospital again.
  2. I was contacted by hospital I haven't worked at in over a year for re-credentialing. I told them I no longer work there, and they told me to resign my credentials. Basically, I'm wondering if there are any negative implications to voluntarily resigning my credentials? Have any other PAs had experience with this? Thanks
  3. The contract doesn't say anything about liquidating damages or probationary period...
  4. The non compete prevents me from owing an urgent care clinic, taking employees or patients if i leave for 2 years after, within 10mi radius. None of which I'm concerned about
  5. So i've received this offer from an UC ,and I was looking over the employment offer and some things stood out to me. I just wanted to get you guys take on it. I've included the concerning parts below. Does the first part before the non compete clause mean that I cant have a second job outside of the clinic, like if I wanted to do part-time/prn at a hospital? As for the non-compete, is it basically saying I cant work at any other UC for 2 years after I leave? I'd really appreciate the feedback!

  12. The sight of my brother, lying motionless on the ground with water spewing from his mouth as our youth pastor avidly pumped his chest, is an image I will never forget. I became quite familiar with medical profession in a profoundly personal way when my brother nearly drowned at a church pool party. He was placed in a medically induced coma for two and half months and suffered from acute respiratory distress syndrome. My brother was foruntate enough to have a dedicated team of healthcare providers surrounding him, and he recovered within a few months. This event was pivotal in igniting a strong interest in the medical profession and it has continued to grow since. During my undergraduate years, this initial curiosity catalyzed my desire to become a medical professional, and I ultimately realized that serving as a physician assistant would be personally gratifying and professional fulfilling career path. As an undergraduate at Georgia College, I pursued a degree in Biology with the intent of working in the healthcare profession. The coursework was rigorous, yet intellectually stimulating. I enjoyed analyzing, comprehending, and synthesizing the information from my courses. My natural curiosity for learning went beyond simply trying to achieve a grade; it satisfied my desire to understand a concept for the sake of knowing. I did not limit my studies to only biological sciences. Being in a liberal arts school, I was able to broaden my academic horizon and branch out into different fields ranging from healthcare ethics to gender in society. Varying my coursework allowed me to garner a deeper understanding and broader perspective that goes beyond cellular components and genetic makeup. This further strengths my understanding of what it means to be a physician assistant, as this profession incorporates more than just sciences but also the ability to holistically asses a patient. A majority of my college career has been spent working with various organizations on campus and in my local community to substantively improve the lives of those in need. Serving my community has played a definitive role in my decision to become a physician assistant. My service endeavors have provided me the opportunity to experience the personal satisfaction that comes with giving myself to help others and the clear and visible impact my work makes on those I serve. Beginning my sophomore year of college, I began tutoring high school students in math and science as a part of the local Youth Enrichment Services after school program. These students were in danger of failing one or more of their core classes, but by spending four hours a day, three times a week with these students, they were able to excel above what was expected of them. There is a sense of fulfillment that comes from enabling others to reach their full potential that they otherwise may not be able to attain. This realization made entering a profession that focuses on building relationships and genuinely improving the quality of others absolutely imperative. My first exposure to physician assistant profession occurred while I was volunteering in the PICU. I was able to witness firsthand the technical and intellectual ability involved in making critical clinical judgments despite a fast-paced and often chaotic environment. The role of the physician assistant involved cooperation, dedication in a medical team, and the autonomy to carry out knowledge-based decision. Of paramount significance, though , was the effect the physician assistant had on her patient and her constant obligation to serve them. Watching her interact with the patients and often times the patient’s family demonstrated the incredible power the physician assistant has to comfort, reassure, and heal the patient through clinical skills and genuine compassion. With the desire to dig deeper into this healthcare profession, I interned at a women’s healthcare center and gynecology department under the guidance of an OBGYN PA. I was able to directly interact with patients and conduct basic preparation for in-office procedures. As an intern in a small town, I was able to see firsthand the shortage of healthcare providers, particularly doctors. This experience was critical for me solidifying my desire to become a PA. I believe that physician assistants are crucial for the future of medicine. With the shortages of physicians we face, particularly in rural areas, PAs will be needed to fill this gap and ensure the quality of healthcare remains relevant. Becoming a physician assistant would allow me to incorporate my values and beliefs to ensure the betterment of the fellowman, regardless of their geographic area. While my brother did not require long term medical supervision for his injury, I have seen and continue to interact with others who require constant attention of health professionals for their daily needs. Patients expect a physician assistant to be dedicated to improving their immediate physical well-being and long-term quality of life rather than just an expert in clinical science. My experience in healthcare settings along with other activities has solidified by decision to become a PA . I can imagine no greater achievement than dedicating my life to alleviating the suffering that accompanies human ailment by becoming a physician assistant.
