  4. Testosterone,e Hormones, CBD/MM, etc. there is still a big market for this and many are willing to pay outright for it. I know there is greater regulation of compounding pharmacies that dispense alot of these meds....but the market is growing still!
  5. Looks like many of us have been precepting and teaching medical students for years. How often do you run into a doc where they say "A PA taught me to do a punch Bx, IO access....etc etc!"
  6. Cornell did in 2018 move to a SPACIOUS 2 level facility and faculty center with a SIM MAN (very cool), clinical exam rooms, multiple classrooms, private student lounge, lockers , full windows and lots of light etc etc etc tons of space!
  7. Usually its not worth the fight....document document and move on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. New grad! Looks pretty good....what is the patient load? Any chance of getting into the OR ??
  9. FLORIDA PRE-PAs ! This event is coming up soon! Look for a change to win a FREE REGISTRATION on the AASPA Facebook page!! Admissions committees love the certificate you get at the end! Questions? CEO@aaspa.com
  10. Yes it looks like the usual, agree w comments above! Are DOs deflecting away from their issues onto PAs? #OMT !

  12. Don't forget PA 2019 twitter feed: @MCMCMCWCMCPA10 "Cornell PA 2019" Its great stuff!!
  13. I am so thankful none of these choices say "Surgical consult!" Enjoy the flu season!
  14. I personally decided not to do DOT certification even though the UC were was was Per-diem really wanted me to. I had nightmares of some CDL holder crashing into a schoolbus, and my name was on his health certificate. Plus, as mentioned above the regulations are pretty intense! JERRY
  15. Regular PANRE has a 97% or so pass rate, even as a speciality PA I have taken it twice cold and passed both times, taking it a year early gives me a buffer in case I need to retake it.
