  1. Same here ! Congratulations!
  2. I just got notified my scores are in
  3. I looked on the NCCPA website and apparently could get results as early as 8 weeks.
  4. It’s all in your protocol. Lynchburg has a certificate program dedicated to telemed so definelty a number of PAs doing it.
  5. Would like you guys option on a situation I recently encountered. Doing solo coverage at a small ED and get a call from the floor to see a patient that has a new onset GI bleed ( was admitted for respiratory complaint). I refused to go to the floor because my protocol does not cover hospitalist work and it’s questionable if my malpractice insurance would cover it. The attending physician for the patient refused to come in “because it’s the ER responsibility for emergencies”. The hospital DON gets involved and her solution is to discharge the patient from the floor and have them broug
  6. 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.
  7. I know one optho PA. He does exams and assist in the OR. Not sure of the particulars.
  8. Did it actually take 10wks to get results ?
  9. 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.
  10. Good for SEMPA in putting out a strong statement https://www.sempa.org/professional-development/response-to-joint-statement/
  11. Changed my plan... will officially start on my MBA in January.
  12. 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.
  13. Not yet but I predict within a decade it will be the “ gold standard “ and within 15yrs will be required.
  14. 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.
  15. Perhaps working at an academic medical center could be a good fit. Think level one trauma/transplant centers with multiple residency programs.
