  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Um, yeah, that's murder by pretty much every objective standard.
  4. To people who champion "Medicare for All" are you saying this merely because you want to get everyone some basic level of coverage or because you think it will provide for quality of care? I know a lot of seniors that don't love it as their insurance, and I know a lot of practices that don't love having Medicare patients due to reimbursement rates.
  5. Is this a lifetime max? I could blow through that just paying for Levitra.
  6. Physicians need to realize the "midlevel" train has already left the station. Advanced providers are here to stay, no matter how they feel about it. Now they have to decide which model they would like to support: 1. There are PAs, who were "invented" by physicians, trained in the medical model, and have been generally eager to work side by side with physicians. or 2. There are NPs that by most measures have inferior training (at least out of the gate) are all into calling themselves "doctor," and generally give the middle finger to physicians. We are beyond the point where political crap will change anything. Physicians can support the PA profession, prioritize hiring PAs in their systems, and watch us grow and thrive. The alternative is to watch us go into extinction as the market is flooded by NPs, much like C. diff moving into a vacant colon.
  7. If you bail in a week, I wouldn't even put it on your CV. It never happened.
  8. So here are the likely scenarios: 1 You don't report. It never comes to light. It's over 2. You don't report it but it shows up on some background check. You have to appear at a board meeting, get sworn in, and explain. You explain that you were following the $250 guideline from the instruction packet. 3. You can report it and they likely will call you in to meet with the board and get sworn in to explain. Any which way this should not hinder a license, unless you're a pothead, Fokker...
  9. Might be they are haggling with another candidate and they are keeping you hanging as plan B in case it does not work out.
  10. Seems like the "low-IQ" is practically a job qualification for most C-suite inhabitants.
  11. Andy Rodican's work aside, when I'm involved in admissions, I don't give the essay more than a cursory glance. Anyone should be able to write a good essay, and I'd expect it's been proofed 100 times. Seeing you in person, unscripted, in your interview is much more valuable to me.
