  1. I did an IM rotation with them. Very good group of APP's and attendings. I would expect this to be a very high quality program.
  2. Medical Practitioner. We don't need Care in the title. It's too long and redundant. Medical Practitioner!! Say it a hundred times to yourself today.
  3. IMHO it makes no sense to incorporate physician into our title. The title should be about US. And what WE provide, although we very much enjoy our professional collaboration with physicians. Medical Practitioner is the ONLY and BEST name for OUR profession. Associate is a weak noun with no real substance. Again, just my opinion. Happy Holidays!!!
  4. Hi Utah PA's. I applied for an ICU job a couple years ago and was told by a critical care doc friend that the ICU at Intermountain Medical Center was currently only hiring NP's. Is this still the case? I find it suprising that they advertise for a PA trauma/critical care residency but won't hire a PA. How is the current job market in Utah for PA's when compared to NP's? Is Intermountain Health Care(IHC) becoming less PA friendly?
  5. Name change, OTP, residencies and CAQ's appear to likely be the future for the PA profession. CAQ's should be expanded. What specialties do you think should be added? Current NCCPA CAQ's: 1) CT Surgery 2) EM 3) Hospital Medicine 4) Nephrology 5) Orthopaedic Surgery 6) Pediatrics 7) Psychiatry Possible CAQ options??: 1) Cardiology 2) Gastroenterology 3) Urology 4) General Surgery 5) Neurosurgery 6) Transplant surgery 7) Radiology 8)Internal Medicine 9) Pulmonary/Critical Care 10) Pain Management 11) Allergy/Immunology 12) Infectious disease 13) ENT 14) Rheumatology 15) Neurology Thoughts??
  6. And remember that an 8-5 is often a 7:30- 6:00pm or more when it comes down to do it. Pennsylvania is super saturated correct?
  7. I know a guy working UC that gets paid $33 per patient seen. His gross pay for the month of October was just shy of $18,000 working 5-6 days a week. Can I work around the clock with you too please?
  8. Specifics you wish to share about how PA's are treated like second class citizens to NP's? Which institution?
  9. I just started a radiology job at $135,000 with a $5k sign on bonus as my first job out of school. 6-8 weeks vacation, bonuses, no call and partnership after 2 years if things go well. Also in NE. I also have my RT and RA/RPA certifications. I had other radiology offers, one of which was $92,000 after 6 months at $85,000 in my home state. Saturday coverage was needed, plus call and lots of driving between different hospitals. A state with a low-moderate COL and a tough, saturated market in the area I wanted. My job search there was defeating and I was forced to look elsewhere. Originally wanted to do something outside of radiology as my first job out of PA school. That didn't pan out so it's back to barium for me
