  1. That is generally how they operate. Every email/phone call I ever received was exactly on the specified date posted on the website.
  2. This isn't exactly what I want to be reading while in PA school. However, I often peruse indeed and other job websites and constantly see new posts for PA employment. I am considered by many to live in a "PA saturated state" yet the job postings keep coming everyday. Like others have said I haven't seen many for primary care etc. Most of the postings are for critical care, surgery, etc. The one clause that concerns me is that the majority of them are asking for >1 year experience.
  3. As of now interviews will be on campus. Interview invites will likely be sent out on December 18th. Good luck!
  4. Thank you very much. That is extremely helpful. I appreciate your response.
  5. Hi all, I am interested in going into Cardiology out of PA school. I was curious if someone who works in cardiology as a PA wouldn't mind explaining their day to day tasks as a PA. I posted in the specialties sub-forum, but didn't get much love. If you'd rather send me a message that is cool too. Thanks!
  6. I am currently in PA school and have a high desire to practice in cardiology based off of didactic learning. However, I was wondering if any Cardiology PA's could chime in on what your day to day looks like working as a cardiology PA. Thank you in advance.
  7. I don't really mean asking them to do the fighting. I mean us coming together to do it together. If both physicians and PA's can state their distaste with how things are regarding NP's something has got to give. I'm not naïve enough to think that at some point after pumping out 30k NP grads a year with high numbers of them doing their degree online or over the course of many many years that the care they deliver independently is going to result in sub-par patient outcomes. There is a reason medicine has grown to such strict standards. It's because its hard and takes diligent, long sacrifice to
  8. I feel like I’ve been seeing the same strategy of riding the coat tails of NP’s legislative victories for a while and then trying to use that to make a case for PA’s. But obviously it doesn’t seem to be working. In FL PA’s got kicked off the bill a day or two before it was voted on voila NP’s had independent practice and PA’s stayed the same. Maybe a different strategy is necessary. I feel like PA’s should reach out to the MD/DO leaders and combine efforts to put the kabash on the steady uprising of the NP’s. It’s widely understood by physicians that 1) PA’s are far better trained and much mor
  9. Computer. PA-CAT was the first day of interviews. It was being done as a pilot study. I don’t know that this round of applicants will be asked to take it.
  10. The interview process was very well organized in my opinion. We were required to take a 4 hour PA-CAT exam in addition to writing an essay. Otherwise no additional testing.
