  1. https://practicingclinicians.com/ They have live on-line sessions this year
  2. I know there was a post on this a while back but I can't seem to find it so sorry if this topic has already been exhausted. I have 7 years of experience only in specialty. 2 years in endocrinology and 5 years in GI. I am now considering a job in primary care. Does anyone have any good recommendations on essential texts or resources to have to start studying? Thanks!
  3. Update: I did tearfully resign my position. I am being payed for my final 2 weeks but was not asked to return. I never really got a clear answer other than this person was uncomfortable with the entire office. Again thank you everyone for your input.
  4. Thank you all for the words of encouragement. Luckily I am very much on the same page as Boats and would be fine for 6-8 months without employment. However, I hate to see my bank account go down as opposed to up!. I have contacted a lawyer but he didn't feel like he could offer anything unless I would foresee myself being out of work for a long period of time. Again thank you everyone for your kind words.
  5. This may be one of my first posts on this site. I've been a long time lurker since before my education and now find my 7 years in and I think I am being fired for the first time in my life. I have already sent out tons of resumes and have an interview scheduled in a week. I guess I'm looking for maybe just a little hand holding. I really don't know how to handle this situation. I work for a small rural hospital and the CEO is a micromanager to the extreme. I have been suspended, going on my second day, without a clear reasoning only that there has been a complaint made. The first one ever. My
  6. I get 15% of my hourly rate for being on call which only involves answering phone calls. Usually 1 or 2 a weekend.
  7. Seems to be pretty standard. Our offices were closed this winter due to the Oroville Dam disaster. We all had to use vacation days.
  8. I don't work in UC but I do get time and half for anything over 8h/day.
  9. Was the testing for eradication at least 4-6 weeks after completing therapy? If not this can lead to both false positive and negatives. Pylera works well but you can also order the abx seperately or use doxycycline instead of tetracycline to bring down the cost. Sequential therapy with amoxicillin, clarithromycin and tinidazole. There are numerous therapies for 2nd and 3rd line treatment.
  10. Why wait? If the ideal TSH is between 1 and 2 while on replacement why wait until someone is utterly miserable with a TSH of 5 to initiate treatment when they were symptomatic at 3? When I previously worked in Endocrine we always started those with symptoms on a full replacement does if TSH was over around 2.5 or 3. If no improvement in 8-12 weeks then thyroid disease was not causing their symptoms. But for those who benefit it is life changing. So why wait until there TSH is 5 and they've gained 50-100 lbs and there lipids are a mess. The damage from that is not easy to reverse.
  11. I would advise getting CA license before moving. When I moved from Penn to CA every recruiter/potential employer I spoke with was relieved to hear I already had my license. If you do not need your DEA license where you currently practice I believe you may be able to transfer it.
  12. Hi All, My husband and I are planning a relocation to Nevada County and I've been hoping to get a feel for the area in terms of employment but haven't really been able to find any PAs to connect with. I've joined CAPA and searched the database without any luck. Anyone out there with some insight or experience in the area???
  13. Latent Autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) can progress to insulin very quickly. Not all that uncommon.
  14. There are only about 10,000 endocrinologists out there so jobs are difficult to come by in this field. There was only one endo in my area so I just go lucky.
