  1. This can vary widely from board to board and state to state. The board is trying to decide if you have good judgement, and they tend not to like alcohol issues. It would probably be a good investment to get a lawyer and see if you can make this thing go away. Can you pay the lady for a new door and she'll drop changes?
  2. myCME.com has a lot of stuff. It even reports automatically to NCCPA if you set it to do so.
  3. As a fellow introvert/misanthrope, I know where you are coming from. You might find patient care is not too bad. It is generally 1 on 1, and the conversations tend to generally be fairly structured with a focus. After initial pleasantries, you don't have to worry much about small talk. "What brings you here? How long has that been going on? How would you rate it on a scale of 1-10? Have you also noticed x..." You'd probably be better off in a specialty other than something like FM or peds. For some reason, all the nephrology guys I have known are big introverts and severely intelligent.
  4. People aren't bright enough to exercise and stop smoking and you think they will even notice the change? They won't even look up from their cell phones.
  5. It's been said here before, but there are two routes for AMA. 1. They can attack "midlevels" eventually run PAs out of business, and see the market totally taken over by NPs that don't give a damn about the AMA. 2. They can support PAs - invented by a physician, trained in the medical model, and help lots of their members provide better care to patients. AMA is far too obtuse to go with number 2. They are a cancer.
  6. I've seen what woke looks like. Please keep me on the Propofol drip.
  7. I think a nocturnologist might be someone that studies nocturnists.
  8. I'd tell them "both HIPAA and FERPA prevent me from discussing patient care with you. Bye."
  9. I feel pretty much the same, but you'd better put on your asbestos underwear.
  10. Sometimes ya just gotta roll the dice. (Heck, might even be more than one.) I've seen most paramedics that become PAs become excellent PAs. I've seen a few struggle with things I would have thought would not have been a problem. I've seen a few that you just couldn't teach anything because they thought they already knew everything. To a large extent, success in medicine hinges on humility. Someone who comes charging in with some ax to grind with Massey doesn't fit the mold.
  11. Important, helpful hint: with this attitude, don't apply to a program where I'm on the admissions committee, sweetheart.
  12. Admissions criteria are so disparate it would be almost impossible to generate a comprehensible data set. There have been a few very small studies looking at the effect of experience on PA school success and they concluded there was no effect.
  13. It can also be very difficult to teach them to write a comprehensive H&P. They like to write little snippets of things that look like ambulance run reports.
