  1. Thank you everyone for your advice. I really appreciate it. I hope I can get through this transitional period without any major hiccups and help someone else in my position down the road.
  2. I guess I'll continue doing what I can on my own. I'm sure this feeling is common but I'm just not sure to what extent it's acceptable. I'm seeing about 18 patients a day so it is difficult to look things up in between patients but I do what I can. The SP regularly ignores my concerns. After two weeks he asked me if I felt comfortable working with just another PA in the office and I explicitly said I did not feel ready for that yet as the other PAs have a full schedule as well and are not usually available to ask questions. So three days later without any discussion....he puts me in the office
  3. I recently started working at an internal medicine office about two months ago. The office is owned by one physician and has two separate locations which me and the other two PAs rotate between. This is my first job out of PA school and I have to say I have not felt all that comfortable with the guidance I am receiving from my supervising physician. There have been a couple of times where he was unavailable to consult with and other times where I have sensed some reluctance on his part to answer clinical questions. He often gives me the shortest answer possible when addressing my concerns. I f
  4. I'm a recent graduate and I have an interview coming up very soon for an emergency medicine position. I wanted to hear from some people who have been through EM interviews so I can get an idea of what to expect, especially as a new grad. I have been on interviews for other specialties in the past and I have been pop quized with clinical scenarios and "how would you work up this patient" type questions. They were totally unexpected at the time and completely threw me off. Has anyone had a similar experience in EM? What type of questions were you asked? Thanks, your help is much appreciate
  5. I was trying to think of something I could do in the meantime that would look good to potential employers when they ask what I've been doing for the past several months. I'm considering getting an ultrasound certification or something along those lines. It could be useful in the future anyway. What do you guys think?
  6. I've been applying fo ER, primary care, ortho, and pretty much whatever comes my way at this point. I live in the dc area and I was trying to stay local but now I'm thinking I may need to consider moving. The only lead I have now is a pain management job which I would have to relocate for and honestly I have no interest in. When I go on interviews, this gap in employment that I've had since I graduated seems to be an issue. unfortunately I did not come from a strong medical background before PA school.
  7. I graduated from PA school in August '13 and passed the board exam back in September. I didn't take job hunting too seriously early on because I really just wanted a break after PA school. But now that it's almost February, I'm starting to get very concerned. I'm now applying to pretty much everything I can in my area and I've gotten several interviews over the past few months but have still not found a job. I'm afraid that if I don't find something VERY soon, no one will ever give me a chance since I've been unemployed and out of school for so long now. Any advice? It would be much appr
  8. I'm a new grad and I interviewed with a holistic private practice in a wealthy area. They have not yet given me any specific numbers with regard to salary but they said I could start off as a medical assistant until my license came through?!?!?? Has anyone else dealt with this? I've never heard of this before. What's the typical deal when it comes to training for a new position? Should I expect a regular PA salary or to start off at a lower rate?
  9. Hi everyone, I'm a first year PA student and I've recently become really interested in complementary and alternative medicine. Is there any way I can pursue this area as a PA or am I just in the wrong field? Thanks for the help!
