  1. Sounds like you might be slipping into burnout yourself, or you haven't found the right job yet. You are still early in your career, and there's probably no way that it won't be stressful until you have more experience. There are options for non clinical roles if that's something that interests you. However, it's generally advised that you find whatever it is you want to do and go towards that rather than run from clinical practice into just anything. You might end up in the same situation for all you know. If all you do know right now is that you don't want to be working in your current job for the next X amount of years, maybe start with another job, another specialty, another employer, etc. Find other opportunities (leadership, teaching, whatever) to get involved in and see where that takes you.
  2. That's interesting that a hospital of all places would make you do live CME since it's still very much covid times. At least they are keeping the online option open. Your state CO might have a small CME conference, most (all?) of which are virtual at the moment. Here are some links you can try: IAPA Spring CME (we also have a fall conference!) WAPA Spring CME Other online CME options Good luck!
  3. I don't personally work in EM/UC but I'm guessing you still have your phone in your pocket. Can't go wrong with MDCalc VisualDx WikiEM Epocrates 5 min clinical consult Medscape can be okay sometimes
  4. For what purpose? Billing? Risk management? Clarity of communication?
  5. I put together this page with data and resources on COVID, including free CME. Hope it helps https://modernmeded.com/novel-coronavirus-disease-clinician-resources/
  6. Here's an article with a lot of resources for all levels in palliative care https://modernmeded.com/palliative-care-cme/
  7. I typically go to conferences, even better if I can be a speaker there, too. This year I'll be having a new baby right around the time of AAPA, so I'll be staying home and doing online CME. I've written about this before, especially ways to make the most out of whatever CME money you have. As an overview, the strategies are: 1. Speak at a CME conference (usually gets you in the door for free, if not ahead, so that you can use your CME funds for other things). 2. Do online CME, especially those with gift card bonus options 3. Find discounts online for said CME 4. Make you own CME (ie, work with companies like Hippo to create content that you can turn around and get CME credit for). Best of luck!
  8. I've always liked Board Vitals CME question banks. Here's a critical care bank https://www.boardvitals.com/pulmonary-critical-care-cme#_l_9b Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Here are a few: https://modernmeded.com/best-cme-with-gift-card-offers/
  10. I have been putting together a collection of what I think are good CME resources here. There are a couple free options that will get you 22 hours of Category 1 together, the others are paid and vary in price from not much to a bit pricey, but come with up to 100 cat. 1 hours. Good luck!
  11. Sounds like you probably won't need it, but I've always thought Board Vitals had good CME and board review products. Here's their PANCE/PANRE question bank: https://www.boardvitals.com/pance-board-review-questions#_l_7q Jordan G Roberts, PA-C ModernMedEd
  12. Merritt Hawkins puts out a report that includes this kind of thing each year. There might be information in it you can use. Here's the latest one: https://www.merritthawkins.com/uploadedFiles/Merritt_Hawkins_2018_incentive_review.pdf Jordan G Roberts, PA-C ModernMedEd
  13. I'm with sas5814; there's no such thing as out-exercising a poor diet, even for the most physically gifted among us. For us regular schmo's, we need to pay close attention to both. I remember being taught in undergrad exercise science that if you can create a Calorie deficit of 500 kcal/day, you can estimate a "safe" 1lb weight loss per week (500 kcal x 7 days = 3500 kcal; one pound of adipose tissue is worth 3500 kcal). Of course, you'll also burn more or fewer calories from carbohydrate stores depending on the type of exercise you are doing, which kind of throws a wrench into my calculation there. Maybe try searching the exercise science literature, surely they've updated it since then. Jordan G Roberts, PA-C ModernMedEd
  14. For additional revenue, learn to invest, buy and rent out property, marry another high-earner, or pray the government somehow cancels your student loans. Here are some non-pa jobs side hustle ideas https://modernmeded.com/non-clinical-career-topics/ Jordan G Roberts, PA-C ModernMedEd
