  1. Normally I don’t respond to these type of forum posts because it usually does no good. But since you used my name (Jim Van Rhee) in the post I feel obligated. So, a few points: 1. Diversity- so for you, diversity is based on the school photos. Did you recognize the LGBTQ students in the photos? Did you recognize the military veterans in the photos? Did you recognize the students from rural underserved communities in the photo? There is more to diversity than any photo can show. 2. Money and Tuition- yes, the Yale tuition is $105,812. So, and I quote “ALMOST 30% higher tuition than every school!!!” To be 30% higher than every school that means all other school tuitions are around $74,069. So, I looked at a few other programs. A program in California tuition is $174,380. If you say just schools in the Northeast, then a program in Massachusetts I found has a tuition of $109,039 and a program in Connecticut at $102,955. None of these are 30% lower, some are higher. 3. Money again- application fees and I quote again “I really advise Pre PAs to spend their money wisely before applying to a school that’s making well over a quarter million in application fees just so they can tell you no .” Yes, the more people who apply the more admission fees are collected and yes, the more people that apply the more people are denied because we can only take a certain number of students. I think this is the same for every PA program in the country. Using your number of $250,000, you said over but I will use $250,000, with the application fee for the program being $50 that means 5000 applied and submitted a fee to the program. We have not even have half of that number of completed applicants. 4. No respect and faculty and staff a mess- this based on your online interview with us and may be some interactions with the admission team. How dare you. The faculty and I work incredibly hard every day, as do all PA faculty around the country, to make sure students have a great experience. And it starts with admission. We have an admission team that works with students through the admission process, we were doing interviews online before COVID saving students travel money, we revisited the prereqs to remove hurdles to students applying. Once in the program we have created a Well Being program for students to help them with the stress that comes with PA school and life. We have a Career services team to help students with CV writing, interviewing and job placement for after graduation. One last thing- you said last 5 years of school photos. We have only admitted 3 classes. Are you even talking about the right program? You said 1-6 out of 50ish or so, if you mean 50 classes then you really have the wrong program. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but they are not entitled to present false or misleading information or information without context. If you discover you are wrong I hope you apologize and post it to the forum.
  2. I understand concern about wanting a classic experience with classmates- but what do you mean by that? Sitting in a classroom together listening to a professor talk for an hour and not being engaged or are you talking about working with fellow classmates solving medical problems and discussing medical concepts. Then the online format used by Yale Online is the way to go. The time used face-to-face online is to review concepts and apply the concepts from lectures to solving real medical cases. It is the application of these concepts you will use the rest of your life not just the facts. Its one thing to know everything about a disease or medication, but can you make the diagnosis in a patient and pick the right treatment for that specific set of patient facts. That is want is needed to practice medicine. Not the passive sitting in a classroom listening to the sage on the stage, but you need the guide on the side to show you how to use the information. Its just my opinion but I could be wrong.
  3. If you are interested reach out to Jessica.McCool@Elsevier.com she can provide all the details. Look for authors now for critical care issue. Jim
  4. Everyone, I am the consulting editor for the journal Physician Assistant Clinics published by Elsevier. We are looking for authors and guest editors for upcoming editions. PA Clinics aims to provide an authoritative and continuously updated clinical information resource that covers all of the relevant PA specialties. This series, made entirely of clinical review articles, gives PAs deep insights into the latest advancements in their fields and shows how they are applicable in practice. The responsibilities of the Guest Editor include developing a table of contents for the issue, inviting authors to contribute articles, reviewing the completed articles for medical content, requesting revisions from authors (if necessary), and writing a brief Preface for the issue. The Guest Editor is only required to review papers for medical content and objectivity; Elsevier takes care of grammar editing, formatting, and the like. These responsibilities are outlined in the Guest Editor Guidelines, which are enclosed. Regarding the length of the issue, we include approximately 12-14 articles of 20 double-spaced manuscript pages. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if this is something that interests you. If you’d like to bring on a co-editor to work with you, we can certainly discuss those options as well. Respond here and I can put you in touch with the editor from Elsevier. This a great chance to get published and share you knowledge with other PAs.

  13. This is a repost of the Stroger/Northwestern ENT residency progam. The posting from 4/13/2012 continued information that could mislead an applicant to the program regarding accreditation of the program. This was not the intent of the posting. The residency has not applied for accreditation through the ARC-PA postgraduate program accreditation process. More information regarding the accreditation process can be found at http://arc-pa.org/postgrad_programs/process.html Physician Assistant Fellowship: Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery The Departments of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at J.H. Stroger Hospital (Cook County Hospital) and Northwestern University School of Medicine have partnered to offer a 1 year post-graduate Physician Assistant Fellowship in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. This is a newly developed program designed to recruit applicants to begin the 12-month specialty program upon completion of certification and licensing in Illinois. We seek to attract two fellows into the program each year. The purpose of this program is to provide comprehensive medical and surgical training in all areas of the field of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. Upon completion of the program, graduating fellows will possess the medical knowledge base and technical skill set to confidently launch into clinical practice. Given the prevalence of ‘ENT’ disease, the successful fellow will be an invaluable asset in a variety of clinical arenas including Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, and of course Otolaryngology in both private and academic settings alike. Curriculum Fellows with receive clinical and didactic training at Stroger Hospital (Cook County Hospital) and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The academic year will consist of four 3-month blocks with fellows alternating between the two hospitals every 3 months. Clinical experiences will include outpatient clinic, operating room experience, in-patient rounds and consults, emergency room consults, as well as night/weekend consultation. The didactic otolaryngology curriculum consists of a robust collection of academic conferences including core lectures, grand rounds, morbidity and mortality conference, and multidisciplinary head and neck tumor conference. Program Goals At the conclusion of the fellowship program, fellows will have attained proficiency in the following areas: Broad knowledge base of otolaryngology disease that presents in both outpatient and inpatient settings Management of patients from the initial consultation through operating room and inpatient management followed by post-operative outpatient follow-up Surgical skills in the operating room that includes prep/draping, surgical instrumentation, suturing, and surgical assistance Minor office procedures (fine needle aspiration, fiberoptic laryngoscopy, simple biopsy, nasal endoscopy and packing, etc.) Initial management of common otolaryngology problems that arise in an emergency room or in-patient setting Airway and tracheotomy tube management Hours: The PA fellows will be expected to adhere to a full didactic and clinical curriculum that generally equates to 10 hours per day, 5 days per week. The fellows will also be expected to participate in shared night/weekend call that will not be greater than every fourth night on average. Clinical duties for a fellow are expected at only one institution at any given time, though fellows may travel between the two campuses for certain didactic experiences.
