  1. That's easy though, by NP's own definition, they do not practice "medicine"...
  2. https://www.newswise.com/articles/american-academy-of-dermatology-association-statement-on-physician-assistant-name-change
  3. I guess I am old as well ... WTH is a discord? And why are they walking on my lawn!?!
  4. I think you have to go to their annual retreat in the woods and sacrifice a Pre-PA to their carved wooden idol... Then you're in!
  5. Does it have to he a Bachelor's? You can get an MS from ATSU without a bachelor's still I think...
  6. Agree Bob about online CMEs! Since Sunday, I've already racked up 17.25 units from the conference in the comfort of my pajamas, or my skivvies... No one will ever know which!
  7. Saw this on a PA's page on LinkedIn reposting the AAPA post. It's already happening! One of the problems of "Physician XYZ" is that, for better or worse, we are always associated with physicians (now with the new name even more so I suppose ) but it's also super easy to say "Physician's Associate" uggh... At least I won't have to re-embroider my white coats winning!
  8. Theyre coming out of the woodwork... After thinking about it and sleeping on it, and talking to my wife and a couple of PA friends about our "new" title... Sigh... I'm still highly disappointed but have to move on. Looks like from all the social media posts, lots of PA-S and young PAs are ecstatic about the new title. I hope so. They will be stuck with it since I don't foresee another title change in the next decade or so. I hope they quickly realize though how toeing the "company line" and singing kumbaya with physicians have really gotten us nowhere the past several decades and
  9. I suppose this is a "win" and like Ventana 10 years ago I would have been ecstatic but this feels like a whole lot of squeeze for not much juice... I still see our "new" title giving an opening for lawmakers etc from preventing FPAR. We may get modified OTP laws like we have been doing for the past few years but is "Just OTP" what we are after? Are we really going to not pursue FPAR? I was hoping title change (MCP) - >OTP->FPAR/Graduated Independence (like in Utah)... But i guess we will continue ASSociation with our Physician demigods overseers... Ooops I mean "associates" and keep gett
  10. I did my BLS but it was only good for 4 units. Don't need ACLS or Pals in my current job.
  11. No not anymore. I left a large system that had it for a 2 provider private practice (read:poor ) . We don't have UTD. I've been doing the JAAPA, medscape, freecme.com etc and was able to get 25 credits but I need 25 credits more and the fastest way for me in the past was to attend a conference and do as many CME units I can. But since many conferences were shutdown last year I couldn't (and I was a little lazy I admit )
  12. I know it's hella pricey... I did it for the CMEs but now I think I paid way too much... I was in a panic after not getting many Class I credits last year and this is the end of my 2 years
  13. I think they vote on Monday... Plenty of time for back alley dealings
  14. Having a hard time keeping up what "Pro" and "Con" actually means on these resolutions I'm dense... I know... Hahahah Edit: OK... Pro to the doctorate resolution right now means they are against "Entry Level" doctorates but not to oppose tracks for doctorates.
