  1. Thank you so much for the advice! Soulfari: ER-The shiftwork is not conducive for a young family (two girls under the age of three) and is not ideal socially for my family as you often work weekend/holidays. The compensation and excitement are contagious though. Ortho Surgery- It is an interesting speciality though often requires long hours and low to average compensation considering the hours/call/rounding. Overall, they are great specialties and I wish you luck. Thank you for the advice on shadowing- I will reconsider it and reach out to more recruiters. I will keep you posted if the transition is successful! Thank you again!
  2. I am have been a full time emergency physician assistant and part-time orthopedic surgery first assist PA since I graduated in 2012 but I am interested in transitioning into dermatology. I currently live in Raleigh, North Carolina and I am finding it difficulty to get my foot in the door without prior dermatology experience. I have contacted a hand full of local dermatologist but they are either not hiring and/or unable to allow me to shadow as they are precepting students. I have even joined SDPA in order to network. Any suggestions on how to make the transition?!? Thanks for your advice!!

  4. This is great website full of cheat sheet cards and they can also be synced to your Evernote. http://academiclifeinem.blogspot.com/2010/03/paucis-verbis-card-knee-exam.html
  5. Earlier this month NHSC sent me a Data Collection Worksheet request. Has anyone received the same request?
  6. Thank you again for everything and I truly look forward to meeting you.

  7. Hello! Good Luck on your interview! I am sure I will see you in the lobby waiting to go in. If you see me introduce yourself!

    You do not need to bring a photo, definitely not. You will only need the forms that they sent you in the package that they said to bring. If you are accepted, they take pictures during orientation week for ID cards etc...

    Best of luck to you!!! If you have any other questions, just ask, I will try my best to answer!


  8. I currently have an interview scheduled for 0ct 29th with NOVA-Orlando campus and was wondering if it is recommended that I bring a picture of myself to the interview. Thank you for your time and assistance!! Hope to meet you soon!!
