  1. I graduated in May and during my rotations, I fell in love with my hospitalist rotation. Luckily, that hospital was hiring (Boston area hospital) for a new overnight position and I got the job. Now my role is covering the pager for the 'non house' patients and also admit 2-3 'non house' patients per night. Non house typically sees the less 'complicated' patients, but sometimes the house or teach staff is overbooked and we get some overflow. Since it's my first job, the chief is very understanding of my capabilities and let it be known that I may have lots of questions for the overnight att
  2. I had a DUI in early '09 that was a result of my stupidity. Prior to that, I had driven drunk before (technically speaking, even though I didn't "feel drunk"---much like everyone probably has. I got into PA school in '10 and had to address it during my interview process, etc etc. I have never been a big drinker, just never really enjoyed it, but I still made that stupid mistake. I probably drank 8 beers a month back then. That said, I am actually thankful I got caught because I am sure I would have continued to drive until I got caught or I hurt someone even though I rarely drank---th
  3. Thanks. Yea, I dont plan in taking a lowball offer. I'll use the report and the fact that it's third shift to my/our advantage.... Assuming i get an offer, of course
  4. Thanks. Would this be the best option to help me negotiate a fair deal, or is there another more up to date source people use?
  5. I have done a forum search to no avail---anyone know where I can get a 2012 salary report? thanks
  6. Preceptor for that week is an attending. I did not follow his directions as I had no plans to, I just thought it was a bit weird for him to say something like that-- very seriously too.
  7. So...After discussing what I did on my exam before admitting a guy from the ER, my attending told me that I should be doing a complete physical exam and not problem focused. He mentioned genitalia and rectal, breast, etc. That kind of threw me off, so I said to him "I am not sure if I will get away with a breast or genitalia exam when someone is coming in for a URI or a headache"...He responds basically saying I need to do everything as a student. How on earth???
  8. Here is a hillarious 'movie' my fellow students made for their Distal Biceps Tendon Rupture specialty test. Ortho and students alike will find this hilarious....and yes, we know he did the 'hook' test wrong in the video. Enjoy.
  9. Just relax. We have a new professor and have had to adapt to his tests. His tests are impossible--he makes them that way. He says they are far harder than the PANCE and I like it that way. Taking his tests then looking at sample PANCE questions is a nice sigh of relief. You'll be fine

  11. I am in my second year there and just finished up the fall semester. We are in a transition right now. There are faculty and deans who left in the past year and new people coming in. Our new assistant program director is an old school, tell you like it is type of guy. He will not be afraid of saying anything---and to tell you the truth, he is exactly what we need. He has made some exam impossible to pass and far harder than any PANCE test will ask us. You study and study and you feel like you don't know anything going over the test, but you really do know a ton of info. His exams are doing not
  12. I disagree. I thought the same thing as you before I took anatomy last year and I came out of that class incredibly impressed. Granted, we take our anatomy/cadaver lab through Harvard and our instructor is the greatest teacher I have ever had in my life... Maybe it was her class structure, I don't know, but anatomy can certainly be taught and taught very well. Whether it's techniques on how to remember all the forearm and hand muscles, brachial plexus, hypogastric plexus (etc), mnemonics, or just being able to answer every question without making the student feel stupid---she completely e
  13. My relationship bit the dust the past week and we live together. It's gotta be very strong to make it through. Good luck.
  14. Yea, you got it. Everything should be free. Great read on me.
