  1. i also tried to keep up a blog... and figured out after the 3rd week of didactics when I had slept about 5 hours per 72 hours of being awake on average that there was no time for blogging. Everyone is different though. I wish you success.
  2. the site is currently shut down with a front page note stating that it can't promise any future services due to the lack of appropriation of federal funds. FYI
  3. my 2 cents... it's alot hard to say "No" face to face. Emails will most likely get you nowhere. Show some initiative and let those feet pound the hospital tile... get in front of the PA and kindly ask if they would be willing to allow you to shadow. It's really the only way to do it, unless you personally know a PA.
  4. LOVE that. I might actually use that next time a fellow/resident corners me in an elevator asking what a PA is :) . Still looking for an answer for my patients though :)

  7. I'm beginning to rotate on patients with one of my professors for a Pt. Evaluation course (1st year PA student) and I'd like to get some opinions from you guys on the best way to summarize exactly what we are/what we do. I know this can be done fairly easy, I'm just interested in hearing from you folks that have actually had this conversation with patients several times and can comment on the most impactful way to present/explain our profession (in a 10-20 second statement). Thanks, JD

  9. My advisor and program director mentioned this to me recently as well that they would like me to consider running for the class president position at the end of this semester. Our class is 95% comprised of 22 year old female's that were all in the top 10% of their undergrad classes and I'm a 35 year old ex hospital and multi-specialty clinic VP of operations and CIO with a wife and 2 kids (i.e. not a ton of time to spare). I know that he is looking at my past leadership roles and what that might bring to program, but I know some of those 22 year olds have tenacious ego's (I hear them behind me in lectures battling for position of "ad hoc" social organizer for the class i.e. assigning themes to the weekend parties they are coordinating while I'm at home studying for 10 hours a day to stay caught up with all of them) - like this is an extension of their undergrad sorority) I'm torn because I have the experience to fill that role, I just don't know if the "post graduation" benefits are worth the hit I might take to family time/focus on study.
