  1. I understand that this is subjective, but I'd like to hear some other opinions on what are the best specialties for PAs today in our current medical practice environment. I am PA who has been in practice for 2 years in primary care and I am definitely ready to make a change into specialty practice. There is no way I could see doing this for my entire career. I will say it does seem that Primary care is where PAs have the most autonomy. I've read around on some other threads and the consensus seems to be that those that work in primary care experience more burnout, to which I can relate. What
  2. Anybody have any familiarity with them? Are they a good PA employer? Thanks.
  3. Just bumping this up to see if anyone else has additional thoughts. I'm kind of going through a similar thing and while I've learned my lesson about signing contracts with penalty clauses I do wonder how do you maintain an amiable relationship with current employer and start a legal dispute. I mean are you just totally writing off your current employer as a future reference?
  4. Thanks for the insight treejay. Neither site would expect me to see that many patient initially, this would be after a training period. I just wonder if 35 patients is too many for anybody. The peds site would be a mix of well visits/physicals and sick care.
  5. I am considering two offers, one is in pediatrics and the other is in family practice. Pediatrics Rural NC location NHSC Loan repayment site (HPSA score 16) Base salare 80k Expected to see 35 pts/day! $300 Stipend for health insurance Family Practice Nicer setting in large urban NC Base salary 82k 20-25 patients per day Health coverage provided Everything else about these offers is pretty comparable. I like the idea of loan repayment because I have a high debt burden. I'm just concerned about the patient load. I know it's kids, but still. I'd welcome any thoughts.
  6. I have been reading some of the previous posts and I am finding almost no reason to choose government loans to help finance my education. New laws (Budget Control Act of 2011) will go into effect on all federal direct loans dispersed after July 1, 2012. Namely this means 1. Graduate students can no longer take out subsidized loans – meaning interest accrues on the loan while you are in school. 2. The upfront interest rebate on federal loans will be eliminated. This means an origination fee of 1% will be deducted from the amount you can receive for Direct Unsubsidized loans and a 4% orig
