  1. I just left EM full time for academics. Still do some EM work. PM me if you want to chat more. It’s a hard transition at first but so worth it.
  2. I know one optho PA. He does exams and assist in the OR. Not sure of the particulars.
  3. Did it actually take 10wks to get results ?
  4. I have heard rumblings of a law suite. Nothing concrete though. I just choose to never work again for the types of organizations that treated PAs (and NPs) so badly.
  5. Good for SEMPA in putting out a strong statement https://www.sempa.org/professional-development/response-to-joint-statement/
  6. Changed my plan... will officially start on my MBA in January.
  7. Shift work is one of the great things of doing rural emergency medicine ( high hourly pay, 24-36hr shifts). Has also been my downfall on more than one occasion with commitment to family. Slippery slope.
  8. Not yet but I predict within a decade it will be the “ gold standard “ and within 15yrs will be required.
  9. The university I work for offers 5k a year toward tuition. My plan is to get an MS in higher education and then go for the EdD. Not a perfect plan but it’s practically free.
  10. Perhaps working at an academic medical center could be a good fit. Think level one trauma/transplant centers with multiple residency programs.
  11. In my humble opinion all of the corporate staffing companies are shady to some extent. I’ve worked for two: Envision and APP. Envision has been a mixed bag with ups and downs. APP was mostly negative. I’d recommend trying to find an independent group if you can though that can be darn near impossible these days.
  12. Does anyone know of a mail order service that provides testing for Covid antibody/ antigen?I need a cost effective testing solution for my students.
  13. Lynchburg is starting a graduate certificate in Telehealth. So that could be beneficial for those starting out and/or getting more knowledge about the admin side of telehealth.
