  1. Hello everyone, I am a new grad and was offered a job in Pm&r. I eventually would love to go into emergency medicine or hospitalist however all the positions I have applied require one or two years of experience. So my question is if I accept a job in pm&r how difficult is it in a few year to switch specialties? Would it be better in the long run to continue searching for a job in family or some other speciality? thanks for all your inputs!
  2. Thank you everyone for all your inputs! I ended up declining their offer as they were not going to negotiate on any part of the contract with me. I got another offer in primary care with a provider who really likes to train, is offering me the same salary, with 3 weeks PTO, 1500$ CME, and the rest of the benefits package!
  3. They said that in the past they paid malpractice but a few people left throughout the years so they changed it but she said they will cover everything. Training wise they said for a about 2 months they will train. I tried to negotiate on the salary and CME but they said that they were pretty firm and they would not be giving any night shift difference. Overall i got another offer in Primary care with the same salary plus 3 weeks PTO, 1500$ for CME, and he's willing to train me well so I'm most likely going to take that offer. Thank you so much for all your inputs!
  4. even though they said they will reimburse the malpractice? From what I was told ICU doesnt really get vacation time so I thought that was considered normal. Thank you so much for your input!
  5. Hello everyone, I am a new grad and have an offer in ICU which I am considering but slightly hesitant. The offer is 110,000 salary based, 7 on 7 off nights no vacation days but you can trade/give away to others working there. they will pay for all licensing, 1000 for CME, and I have to get my own malpractice insurance but they will reimburse after 6 months. Is this considered a good ofter? what else should I ask for?

  7. Hey everyone! Just wanted to give my two cents on how I passed the pance on the first try. Prior to taking the test I read all the posts in regards to people who failed and in a way it freaked me out a lot. In my opinion the test was the most similar to the EOR and packrat and less like rosh. What helped me the most is that a month out I used pance prep, first aid USMLE, and Amboss to gather my information on each topic paying special attention to preventions and most/least likely questions. Then after completing a module i would do rosh questions and read the explanations and those bonus questions. About a week out from my test date I did the NCCPA which put in me in low green area and freaked me out a bit. I then did the ROSH mock tests ( Highly recommend them) and the rosh power pack questions ( i personally liked them but i think they were slightly easy). I then reviewed all my notes on each topic afterwards. I was able to only finish 1000+ questions on rosh due to lack of time but if you start studying earlier I think its a good idea. When taking the test I think some questions were very easy while others i would be able to narrow it down to two answers. I think if you dont know the answer for sure then just chose an answer flag it and dont waste time on it! You can come back at the end and review them. NEVER change answers in my opinion cause the ones I did, I changed them to the wrong answer- I had told myself this prior to going in but in the moment didnt listen! Hope these tips helped! PS for amboss i wouldn't pay for it. I usually just type in a topic then add USMLE next to it and amboss usually pops up in the first few google searches! Its a very good site to get info quickly and very organized!
