  1. No disability. Liability insurance (with tail) covered by UC. Thanks for input. Still waiting to hear after counter offer.
  2. I was currently offered an urgent care position PRN as a solo provider at a well-established UC associated with a large hospital system in Atlanta. Offer is 1099 with $55/hr (no benefits). I felt that this was rather low. BTW I work ortho surg M-F with rare weekend call, with 2+ years experience in ortho and 1.5 yrs (PRN) experience with UC. Initial thoughts were to ask for $65/hr. Any input appreciated.
  3. Check out http://arma-cert.org/prequalification and see if a supervisor you worked with would be willing to whip you up a letter. I got out after 6 yrs as a combat corpsman with nothing to show for it other than BLS, PHTLS and an MA cert. I know it's not much, but may help with those wanted ads that require certification/registration! Good Luck!
  4. I would talk to the clinical coordinator(s) at your program. They would be the best ones to talk to about that since each program will have certain restrictions as far as setting up your own rotations.

  6. Get a heavy duty laser printer (the ones that take toner, not ink) off Craigslist. Something like this: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/834066/HP-LaserJet-P2035-Monochrome-Laser-Printer/ I picked one up off CL for $50 and use it to print all of my ppts and notes. These things can print like 15k pages off one toner cartridge which can be bought on ebay for $30! Oh and I almost forgot. Get a really good, BIG coffee mug haha!

  8. Assuming the vet is receiving post 9/11 GI Bill benefits they are already entitled to 100% tuition/fees up to state-dependent cap + E5 stipend/month. In GA this would equal $17,500 (tuition/yr) + $1000 (books/fees) + $1100 (stipend)x12 months = ~ $31,700/yr. As a 2 time combat deployed vet, I view the GI Bill as $$ I've already paid my dues for. So the perks of your program would have to be pretty damn good for me to be tempted. To me, the financial benefit (maybe around another $10k-$15/yr) of this idea would not be worth a 2 yr commitment following PA school. I can see this benefiting ve
  9. I studied for one solid week prior to taking the GRE. I purchased the Kaplan GRE book with DVD which had mock exams. For 7 straight days I sat for about 8-12 hours and read through the whole book at least once, wrote out essays based off the practice prompts the book supplied and focused a lot on the math section (which I agree is the easiest to comprehend and improve on in a short amount of time). I think the most helpful resource I had was the DVD, which essentially had somewhere around 10 full length practice exams. I kept track of my scores and when I eventually had an average that I was h
