  1. Hey folks, New grad PA here going into hospitalist medicine in Puget Sound area in WA. Would appreciate any tips you veteran PA's have picked up along the way to set me up for success. Hospital details: level 3 trauma, 350 beds, STEMI and stroke center, has all the specialties, open ICU, no procedures, lots of support staff, fairly high acuity. Group details: 16 physicians, 6 APPs. Would take nights about 14x/year. Great group that emphasizes teamwork and collegiate environment. Me details: graduate of a PA program in primary and internal medicine. Decent exposure to inpatient in
  2. Hi all, First of all - thanks for all the advice on this forum, super helpful. Anyway, new grad here. I'm certified and living in the Denver, CO area. Currently on the job search and wondering if our veterans can give any pearls on the job search. I have not gotten licensed yet because I'm applying to jobs all over the U.S. and awaiting to see which state an offer comes from. Open to moving pretty much anywhere to get some post-grad experience - I'm young without restrictions and will only be bringing a SO and a pup. Personal background is ER in a few roles, so my goals are EM, FM/pr
  3. sdpa, Did you ever happen to find a preceptorship in San Diego? I am nearing the end of my didactic year and soon entering clinicals. I will be moving to San Diego after PA school because of my partner, and it would be ideal to find preceptors out there for networking and to get a feel of medicine in San Diego and how PA’s practice (how they’re received and well as practicing laws). If you have any tips that you gathered when you were searching for preceptorships, or if you have any current tips, suggestions, or networking options I’d really appreciate it.

  8. Hi all, We all know there are statistics on the best state/city/region for PAs to practice according to average salary, availability of jobs, and state practice laws for PAs. But I am curious if there are any of you out there that have had personal experiences in different states/cities/regions that would make it more/less desirable to practice there. I’m from Minneapolis, MN - a pretty good state overall for PAs in terms of practicing laws, salary, and quality of life. But I’m considering moving to another state/city to practice and settle down. Hope to hear about your person
  9. Thanks, this has been helpful. So I understand the federal unsub loans have a max of $20,500. Is there a limit to the grad PLUS loan money? And would you recommend the PLUS loan over other loans?
  10. Hey all, Hoping to get some feedback regarding MONEY as a PA student. I was recently accepted into a program and now I have started the process of investigation into everything I need to do before school starts regarding money. My main question is this: how much in loans is a reasonable amount to take out; i.e. what is a reasonable cost for my yearly expenses not including tuition? Obviously this depends on cost of living and how lavishly I'd like to live. I will be studying in Denver, CO, and I'm not a very lavish person. Tuition for the entirety of the program is has not been confirm
  11. Got a call yesterday as well. Looks like I'll be part of the class 2019! Woo! Congrats to everyone so far, and good luck to everyone else!
  12. Sounds like I'm one of the lucky 86! I've been invited to Denver to interview as well!
