  1. thank you for your advice planteater and rpackelly! i will just try and be patient with myself. i may come back to this post for advice as more questions come up!
  2. So I've been working in hem/onc for about 3 months now and it has been completely overwhelming. I've even had a lot of time to read at work and have not had a very heavy patient load (which is good and bad). nccn has been a great resource but learning a wide variety of conditions, their treatments, side effects of treatments, and addressing primary care concerns that come up has been stressful. I'm also learning a new emr/health system which complicates things too. I'm just not sure when I will start to feel more comfortable! I have had the opportunity to work with a great attending but learning this stuff (especially the heme) has been a struggle. Maybe just continuing to see it will help? Any insight is appreciated. The PAs/NPs here have a LOT of autonomy (I feel like I have too much even though I have 7 years experience as a PA I feel like I'm starting from scratch).
  3. Thank you for your thoughts rpackelly! I have accepted the position planteater but the credentialing process has yet to take place so it will likely be another 2-3 months before I would start. Any thoughts/insight still appreciated!
  4. I have spent the last 7 years in endocrinology and am ready for a career change. I am considering a position in hem/onc but am a bit hesitant due to the complexity of these patients and the learning curve. As our practice only managed non-diabetic endocrine patients I saw mostly healthy, non acute patients. I'm also a new mom so I have to factor that into my career change as well. Any thoughts are appreciated.
