  1. He can pay you hourly or a flat rate or salary with bonus and make it out the difference to be similar to per patient Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It’s not about being called doctor I agree with you. It’s about advancing our profession, and not having to compete with NPs for jobs or be driven out. They have so many NP programs. There are 400 NP programs and they are so much easier to complete, there are 250 PA programs. 115,000 PA’s , 270,000 NP’s . So many people assume that the NP education is superior to ours. The truth is that our training better prepares us to practice medicine than the NP and we should consider ways to advance our title and our profession even if it is by doing a doctorate. The NP’s have made it so easy to get a degree. Our focus should be more clinical in our doctorate. Sorry for being all over the place in my post Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The doctor of nurse practitioner was a way for the nurse practitioner to be at a level of an MD and I’m sure eventually with them not needing an MD and having a huge lobby will in the end get the rights to be called doctor in the workplace. We should really start thinking about advancing this DMS program. They attempted to create a new provider out of it, and were shot down by the senate in I forgot what state. That would have been great for our profession in my opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. These are just random thoughts. I mean the name will be hard to change cause people want to be able to compete with NP and their push for independent but are also complaining that our title implies that we could never be that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. They should have gave us better names to choose, it was designed to pick Physician Associate. Medical Care Practitioners. It would have been better as MP (medical practitioner, practitioner of medicine) MD (medical doctor,doctor of medicine) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. How about those who want to not do a DMS with residency stay assistant or associates, and those who complete a DMS with residency can become a new provider, new name. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. How about we create more residency programs like the ones at Arrowhead, and they can have DMS curriculum. So that can be another way of name change and a path to become an independent provider. It will definitely be better education than a DNP program and more clinically based. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What state? Interested in knowing this info too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It’s more than that. You have to provide different type of work than the company you work for...example if you work for an urgent care, and provide urgent care services as an independent contractor or S Corp it’s the same line of work then it doesn’t pass the ABC, has to be different type of service... if you are an urgent care, and contract an S Corp for janitorial services than that fits the criteria. Certain professions got exemption like doctors lawyers ... one way a lawyer told me it would work is if you have multiple employers and they are all paying your SCorp then maybe that can work cause then you provide contract work for multiple businesses. We need to call CAPA and get a push for exemption. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Will this meet the requirements for the 40hrs of didactic online?? https://cme.aapa.org/local/catalog/view/product.php?productid=240 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Anyone know more about the new law to be in effect January 1st, 2020? I’m an independent contractor with an S-Corp, was told by my attorney that I can continue, but Employers attorney says it doesn’t pass the ABC test. Anyone having this problem? Anyone finding solutions?

  14. What I really like is that both LECOM, and the DMS programs are tailored specifically for PA’s only. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Some people just want to further their knowledge and make a pathway for those ahead of us. I don't think you should consider them crying because they want to become doctors, I think we should all be proud of the direction of our profession whether masters or doctorate or the residency programs. To have such negativity towards a PA who wants to get a doctorate that they are hurting the profession is a total misunderstanding. I'm sure we all remember what it took to get here the long clinical hours the studying for hours a day and in class for 10 hours 5 days a week! I think we all continue to advocate for our profession and like EMPA said we know the difference between PA and NP education Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
