  1. Boise Radiology Group www.boiseradiology.com Increased patient volume has presented an opportunity to hire a physician assistant. We are a multi-subspecialty hospital based practice of 33 radiologists and 2 physician assistants with a large coverage area, including sites throughout southwest Idaho. All sites are inter-connected with a McKesson PACS system. We are looking for a self-starting individual. Duties will include coordination and performing of certain interventional services, pre and post procedure H&Ps, obtaining informed consents and rounding on inpatients and performing procedures. Working closely with the interventional radiologists the ideal candidate will grow to have a great deal of autonomy. Prior experience in radiology, critical care (procedural expertise) or specialty surgery is desired but not necessary. Competitive salary, benefits, and educational allowance provided. Send CVs to Brian Granvall, PA-C granvalb@slhs.org
  2. I have taken care of several patients that had either quadriplegia from chiro cervical manipulation following MVC (unrecognized cervical fracture) as well as devastating and debilitating strikes from vertebral artery dissection, again from cervical manipulation...I suppose I'm ok with letting them mess around in the lumbar/hip and maybe thoracic areas, but never, ever cervical...good luck running from that barn fire
  3. I have a buddy working for EPIC I could reach out to him...
  4. E you took the words from my mouth...I am guilty of being pessimistic on this forum in the past, but I think it's also because I view medicine through realism-glasses...as a profession we can't just sing kumbaya and hope our careers will be rewarding when our patients don't know what we are and physicians demean us (I know generalities) but E hit it on the head...if like us, you can't stomach an anachronistic surgeon telling you you're not capable of placing a chest tube, in the interest of patient safety, and you've place literally 1000 more than he has, well you tend to get a little jaded...
  5. You have to check EMS supervision regs...I was able to supervise EMTs on a Federal SWAT team, but that's b/c they were Federal...in the states we were in I could not have supervised EMTs on the street...
  6. The problem Didymus is that you don't add balance...just subjective opinion based on speculation and loose association with the practice of medicine...the reason I listed a few of my "gold star achievements" was to lend some credibility to you, who does not know me. I wouldn't have to be so forthcoming to the likes of andersenpa, E, Primadonna, etc...because they know me and my background...you, however list nothing other than the betrothal to medicine to wit makes not an expert in the field...as far as I can tell you want to be a PA but certainly aren't one, and your use of memes in a thoughtful discussion is outright juvenile...save it for your Snapchat friends...and by the way you're not under the skin of us, you're an ill-informed wannabe that has an opinion...your "information" isn't widely accepted primarily because medicolegal standards vary from state to state...perhaps your online MPH didn't cover that material?
  7. I'm going to stop you right here, because being married to healthcare doesn't equate with knowing about healthcare in the least...my wife was in the stock market, but I never assumed for a minute what the hell she did every day but make us money...now I am assuming you aren't actually practicing based on your naive perception of what WE do...maybe I'm wrong, so forgive me if so... I have been the sole provider in a 24 bed CVICU at a major tertiary cardiac referral center where they didn't use MD's at all...and we had better outcomes...I have worked in Level 1 trauma centers and worn the coveted "Dome" on my lab coat...I have taken care of refugees in Somalia and earthquake victims in Haiti, done surgery in Guatemala - yes DONE surgeries, while the surgeon watched...I perform my duties to this day autonomously as I have for the past 15 years, and teach, that's right TEACH physicians how to take care of patients, not pass tests...there's this thing called "sarcasm" and that directly relates to my 2-day per week comment, but it obviously was lost on you...as far as incomes are concerned, your "statistics" on income equality are highly skewed toward primary care...I can name dozens of docs I work or have worked with that make to this day in the $400K-1.5 million range - all across the country... my perception IS the rule rather than the exception - when you decide to put on your big-boy/big-girl scrubs and realize where our profession is heading then maybe you can join us at the adult table for dinner...
  8. Because you haven't worked with docs for 15-30 years and we have!
  9. OP, I have worked with EMED and he knows as I do, that the both of us are not docs not because we couldn't be, but for a variety of reasons we CHOSE not to be...decisions we both now regret (speaking for you E, correct me if I am wrong)...the point is, given the opportunity you have, we both would take it in a nanosecond, knowing what we do now...we envy and applaud the likes of Primadonna, also our friend, but find ourselves in situations that prevent us from going there...it has taken the both of us, and many others on this forum, decades to reach a comfort level you can attain 3-6 months into your first job out of fellowship...don't be a fool, choose wisely
  10. Yeah dude... we are perma-residents...unless I find a way out, I will do the same thing today, that I will when I am 70 (the probable retirement age when I get there) and get my 6 weeks vaca and maybe a bottle of wine at Christmas if I am lucky...and don't get me wrong, I am in the top 1% of PAs when it comes to awesomeness of jobs...which astounds me that the majority of my brethren suffer the way they do...meanwhile the docs I work with make 6-8x what I do, get a week off per month, ownership/partnership/profitsharing, etc...and when the ACA/ACO turd impacts the oscillator where do you think they will be compared to me? The captain will not going down on the Titanic twice... do us a favor, go to medschool and hire a bunch of us bitter, majorly experienced PAs so we can retire in peace...and you can work 2 days a week, supervising us from the golf course
  11. And we call him the idiot in charge, constantly fixing his f'ups behind him...meh
