  1. How do those of you that take call get compensated for that time? Is it dependent on the cases done during the call time?
  2. Just wondering what those of you who used Kaplan qbank were scoring leading up to your pance and how you did on the actual exam? I've seen many say that Kaplan is quite a bit harder so just trying to get a idea of where I stand.
  3. This is an area I am not strong at. How did you all study this area and what resources did you find most helpful?
  4. Ill add to the original question: Do you have any suggestions in preparation for the review course? Did you use any review material or do you have any suggestions we can do ahead of time to get more out of the course? I have heard it is a great course and well worth the money
  5. In reference to the post above related to DC performing these services, I am inquiring about the usefullness of a PA being trained and credentialed in this modalities.

  7. Dry Needling is a "newer" modality for the treatment of various pains attributed to myofascial trigger points. I am not the best at giving the history and science of this but I will do my best to give you a quick summary. Dry needling is very similar to acupuncture in its essence however with dry needling the practitioner targets a specific trigger point as opposed to acupuncture's use of the meridians. Do a google search for the physician Karel Lewit. He is the first to introduce this concept of "Dry Needling". Here is a link to a website with many articles and studies related to this practice: http://dryneedlinginstitute.com/articles.html

  9. I do not at this time. I am looking into several jobs in ortho. Some are for bigger hospitals while others are in private practice. How does this type of setup affect the employer? is there benefits to hiring a corporation as opposed to the individual?

  11. Would an orthopod find benefit in bringing on a PA that could bring the options of dry needling and Active Release Therapy to their office? I can see the benefit in this as patient that were not immediate candidates for surgery could continue to be patients and bring in income but I can also see this being a disadvantage in that it would potentially decrease the surgery cases. On a side note: is this even legal?

  13. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on this topic? I am close to graduation and was told years ago by a very successful practicing PA that when I was ready to begin working I should look into incorporating myself. I have done some research online and can honestly not find any information relating to this.

  15. E submitted 2 months ago. Final transcript arrived on 9/9. Ive taken a lot of classes at a lot of different schools so maybe mine is taking extra time? i had 6 different transcripts.
  16. LindseyC are you a first time applicant or returning applicant? I submitted awhile before the 14 and havent been evalauted yet.
  17. called yesterday: said they are currently chipping away at the submissions from the 1st-5th.
  18. Ya me too. I e-submitted months ago but was waiting on one transcript to get in that didn't arrive until three weeks after all my others. Most of my schools don't have deadlines for a few months and the ones due in oct only need it to be completed by then not mailed. Id still like it to be sent though. I called a week ago and they told me they were working on apps from the 30th so apparently they haven't made much progress.
  19. called today and they are still working on the app from the 30-31. called a week ago and they were working on the same ones. they said 3 weeks for apps submitted after the 8th
  20. Im just wondering what the recent turnaround time for verification of gpa is? I see they say 5 weeks. people have said that it took 1-2 weeks and then was sent out the closest friday. Just wondering what the current time frame looks like. My app was done with all transcripts in on the 9th of september. One school took a month to get my transcript in while all the others took like 5 days.
