    Does this count as PCE?

    Well it is a start, you can earn some money for PA school and train for a phlebotomy job and get some good volunteer hours in!

  5. I am so thankful none of these choices say "Surgical consult!" Enjoy the flu season!
  6. 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

    New PANRE

    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.
  8. We do something very similar. Most PAs are in a 'terrible' tax bracket and often have a big tax burden, so we always try to pre-pay just enough to not have penalties or need a refund! We always put some $ into metals (monex is a great website) or a basic savings to avoid spending it. We have been doing the 529 program for college savings as well. We have 2 of 3 vehicles paid off, and are nearing the end of our mortgage.
  9. Attention Pre-PAs! Getting into PA school has become very competitive, and many school now have more than 20-25 applicants for each open seat. Here is a meeting you do not want to miss!

  11. It is true that the AMA does not represent a majority of physicians, but they still hold a great deal of influence! I could not imagine the day where they would endorse any independent practice of any sort! Job security. Remember how the American Society of Anesthesia had a stroke when the CRNAs published a statement on independent practice!
  12. YEAAAAAAAAAAA! Instagram. And twitter to :)
  13. I always like the "The physicians here have credentialed me, working w Dr _______ to perform X Y Z.. Can I get you a copy of my credentialing commitee list?" That usally stops them. Also I agree w above when you start thinking "I do not get paid enough for this" its usually time to defer to decision to a higher pay grade!

    I can't be a PA anymore

    oy! Very intense threat....most of us in this thread love being a PA...one does not. Medical PAs may burn out! Try general surgery :) Seriously though, consider pharmacutical rep, equipment sales, insurance consultant, HR etc
