  1. It is a bit uncertain but there are PAs currently working in Queensland. I would suggest looking up the Australian Society of Physician Assistants online or on Facebook to get better information on current opportunities and future outlooks.
  2. Are you interested in staying in Australia to work? If you do not intend on being a PA in the US, look at JCU's PA program. It isn't exactly what you're looking for but it is the closest thing you'll likely find. http://www-public.jcu.edu.au/courses/course_info/?userText=102010-#.UsmadmRDs38 "The first two years of the course are delivered via distance education; however, students are required to attend a number of on-campus residential blocks at the Townsville campus throughout this time. The final year of this course is a full year of clinical placement (with limited residential blocks). The clinical year of the course can be undertaken either full time (1 year) or on a part time basis (over 2 years). Through this method of course delivery, it is possible for practitioners to continue in their current work setting while developing new skills."
  3. Dr. Sreedhar Potarazu went to medical school at the George Washington University.

  5. Try searching to see if you can find some previous discussion on this. I think that there has been a thread on this before.
  6. What province are you in? If it is Ontario, the RT programs are almost all three years.
  7. If the PhD student is functioning as the person responsible for teaching a course, I see no issue with them being the one to write the LOR.
  8. What did you ask of the chief exactly in terms of how you wanted the physicians to address you? It shouldn't be that big an ask to be referred to as the Physician Assistant, but I could see how he could have been a bit taken aback if you asked to be called Mr. PAstudentCanada or PA PAstudentCanada since this isn't something that they would be accustomed to. I could also see how if you specifically asked them to stop with the "my" that he may not have understood since many doctors speak like this about their colleagues without thinking about it (e.g. "my resident", "my attending", "my medical student"). Simply asking to be referred to by the appropriate professional title doesn't seem like a big ask though...
  9. Is it the "assistant" part that bugs you or the "my" or something else?
  10. It might be too soon to say, but I'm wondering what all of this ultimately means for PAs and PA students in Ontario. Will they need to look to other provinces for employment? Will the Ontario PA programs continue?
  11. I know that there has been discussion on this before, but I can't seem to locate the thread. I'm looking for literature on PAs choosing to work in rural and underserved areas, especially how they compare to physicians in this regard. If I recall correctly, there was certainly some literature that suggested PAs are more likely to go rural but I believe there may also have been some suggesting that they end up working the same areas as physicians overall. If anyone can link to any of that I would be grateful. Thanks!
  12. Congratulations on opening your practice. Not to turn this thread into another "medical school" thread, but to me it seems a bit deceptive to refer to yourself as a "medical practitioner" who was trained at PCOM. This really seems to imply that you are a physician.
