  1. I would recommend finding a clear way to articulate why you want to pursue emergency medicine. The staff at Milwaukee are very personable, so let them get to know you through your interview or application. Since EM is team based, I would highlight experiences that show you enjoy and work well within a team. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any specific questions. Good luck!
  2. Here is the list I was provided. I am not sure if all the info on this is accurate since it was sent in 2019. VA PA Residencies by Area (002).docx
  3. Sorry for the delay in response. I was a VA HPSP scholar so I had a 2 year obligation with the VA after PA school. I started asking a lot of questions about residencies to my placement coordinator and ended up with a list of all the VA residencies, it wasn’t being advertised unfortunately.
  4. The VA has some great programs. I actually attended an EM residency but I interviewed at the psychiatric one in Albuquerque. Interview was great and I really liked the staff, I just accepted the EM residency instead. Good luck to you, I highly recommend a residency in general. https://www.albuquerque.va.gov/careers/PhysicianAssistantPostGraduateResidencyInMentalHealth_Psychiatry.asp https://www.houston.va.gov/Education/Physician_Assistant_Residency_Mental_Health/Physician_Assistant_Residency_Mental_Health.asp
  5. Hello all, I am a graduate of the Emergency Medicine PA Post-Graduate Residency Program at the Milwaukee VA. The VA unfortunately doesn't do a great job of advertising their residencies. I had an amazing experience with this program and highly recommend it. Feel free to shoot me any questions about the residency. Pros: -Amazing physicians, mid-levels, nurses and MAs. I absolutely hate the cold but would have stayed around just for the leadership and group you get to work with. -Ultrasound training with a fellowship trained EM physician. Awesome off-service rotations in cardiology, mental health, PM&R, trauma surgery at level 1 trauma center, and ICU. -Weekly grand rounds with the local physician EM residents. Weekly simulation labs/lectures. -Approx $78,000 salary for a year long program, which is much higher than most residencies. The VA also has EM residencies in New York, Philadelphia, Wichita, and Orlando. I'm very biased of course and would definitely advise you to pick Milwaukee. https://www.milwaukee.va.gov//MILWAUKEE/edu/Residencies/Emergency_Medicine/Emergency_Medicine_Physician_Assistant_Post-Graduate_Residency_Program.asp
  6. Hey guys, I currently work at the Houston VA. I don't have much info on the residency but Mike Anderson, the point-of-contact listed on the application is very friendly and I'm sure would be happy to answers more of your questions.
  7. Hello all, My name is Sam and I am an EM residency trained PA that is offering interview preparation through Fiverr. The first person that signs up if they mention this post will be free https://www.fiverr.com/share/wWvwbw Feel free to message me any questions. You can also shoot me questions about residencies or PA questions in general. I'd be happy to chat.
  8. Yes, you are required to do one of your clinical rotations at a VA hospital. It can be any rotation. My school already had an agreement with a VA hospital so it was easy for me. Reach out to Mr. Dixon, the coordinator, if you think it might be an issue.
  9. I was officially offered the scholarship today and it sounds like they will be offering about 30 to 40 scholarships this year. I hope you guys get some good news soon as well.
  10. I applied at the beginning of March and I have still not been notified. According to the scholarship coordinator my application has already been scored and reviewed by the scholarship committee. He said they are only notifying people graduating in 2018, and will wait to notify those graduating in 2019 and 2020 because they are giving preference to people graduating in 2018. I'm graduating in 2019 and I'm a veteran with greater than 10% disability. He said I should probably hear something by the end of May or early June. I'll let you guys know either way. Good luck to everyone who applied.
  11. I think we are all in the same boat with the Facebook group. It would be great to start networking for roommates. I'm coming from New Orleans.
  12. I have seen numerous people ask about a Facebook group for the class of 2019. Has one been created yet? I was accepted in October and still haven't heard anything about it.
  13. Does anyone know if there is a Facebook page for accepted students? Good luck to everyone that has an upcoming interview!!! The program and the staff are amazing!
  14. Hello Everyone! I will be interviewing here on 19 October. Let me know if you are also interviewing on the 19th and need a ride. I will have a car and would be happy to give anyone a ride to the school. Congrats to everyone who has received an interview, and good luck to those who are interviewing this month!
