  1. Interesting topic. What did you find out? sorry you didn't get any help around here
  2. You need 150 CMEs in Psychiatry (I believe it should be within the last 2 years), 2000 hours working in psychiatry and a physician attestation of your knowledge and skills needed for practice in psychiatry, including psychiatric assessment and treatment, psychiatric pharmacology. The psychiatrist must also attest that you have experience and competence in treating the majority of disorders including mood disorders, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, somatoform and factitious disorders, etc. ... and you needs to pass your test! Other than that, you don't need anything else. I don't know of any online program for PA to get additional training in psychiatry. Good luck!
  3. Do you think it would be helpful if I get a MFT license?
  4. I sent an email to a recruiter asking why they didn't have openings for PAs. Here is their answer: "From my understanding our group has historically hired Psych NPs and hasn’t had the need to branch out and hire PAs." I love psych but sometimes I feel I should go with a different specialty. Is there any hope for psych PAs?
  5. PsychiatricPA


    Audio Digest seems to be a good source.
  6. Anyone else? I'm surprised with >130k inpatient.
  7. How many minutes do you have for psych initial evaluation and f/u visits? Thank you!
  8. I live in OH, have no family, no children, no attachments. I'm frugal and would like to pay my student loans in at least 2 years. So my plan is to move to a PA friendly State where taxes are low and where I can make good $$, but I' not sure where. Any suggestions? I'm paying more than $2K in taxes every month. It sucks!
  9. Please go to glassdoor, indeed and write your review. I think this is a great way to let others know about these companies.
  10. I'm a new grad and don't know much about the politics of our profession. This topic was not discussed in PA school. Because I'm a newbie I have a few very basic questions about the process of changing our title. My goal is to understand the process and get involved: 1. Who's in charge and how can this be done? 2. Why does changing the title seems to be so difficult? Anyone against it? 3. How can PAs like me get involved? I'm all for changing our tittle and would like to help. My personal experience: In my graduation, the highly educated president of the campus kept saying "physician's assistant" during her speech. Very painful! Some family members say they are very happy I became a "physician's assistant." Oh my... At this point, it seems we need to change the title or change the grammar. Thank you for your answers.
  11. Thanks everyone! It seems Locums is not a good choice at this time. I already have interviews coming up for permanent positions so I'll be patient :-)
