  1. Hi there, I have my 2nd interview for an inpatient GI position coming up. It sounds like a good step for me coming from family practice/ geriatrics. can someone tell me what day to day inpatient service is like? What are challenges I might not be aware of ahead of time? what are good resources to study? thanks TW
  2. private family practice PA-C here. looking to change specalities and need new ACLS and BLS certification. I was thinking of using promed; it looks pretty simple. I notice on the sample card that it mentions american heart association but obviously is not actually distributed by AHA. Will this be a problem when applying to jobs? Should I just take the time and got to AHA class in person?
  3. basic questions here: I'm a new grad and just started practicing in a private family med clinic seeing acute care pts. what are the recommended professional societies to join here? also, I'm considering getting a DEA; can anyone give me the run down?

  7. I know people say cast a wide net when applying to schools. I was more strategic. I found a school that has far less applicants than in my home state. I ended up getting an interview and I really enjoy this program. Play the numbers in you favor is all I have to say!
  8. So someone tell me if I'm being completely crazy! I'm looking to get married during my clinical phase. I have a planner and a lot of help so its not the coordinating that's an issue but physically setting aside a weekend seems ambiguous. I know clinical year leaves you more time for yourself though. I talked to our director and the solution was to put me on a rotation that has shift work (like the ED) during the time of my wedding. I am out of state so I need a little time to travel but I really only need 3 days total. Our director is willing to help with setting aside an ED rotation (it is pr
  9. I have a class mate that delivered her baby during our didactic phase. Programs cannot hold that against you; its illegal. As long as you have a good support system you can make it work.
