  1. Oh sh#t, Not again! Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  2. Has anyone here used NEJM Knowledge Plus to get CME? What is the best CME sources for surgery/trauma/critical care that doesn't cost an arm and a leg plus my left kidney? Thanks
  3. You might need to get a lawyer or just call them to explain the situation. Since you haven't started yet, I think it might be easier to get out than if you have started. Review your contact to see if you have a way out Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  4. I agree with Mark, option 2 is your best offer in terms of training. Don't worry about the CME money as you can subscribe to NEJM Knowledge + for $400/yr to gain 200+ CME credit a year in family medicine. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  5. If you can find a way to get more than 33 days of PTO let me know. But really, 21 days is the average. There is a reason your husband gets 10 weeks, i guess you already figured it out. In case you haven't, it's because he is a physician. If you want more vacation days, you can always work locum and get as many vaca as you want. The most PTO I've heard a PA has is 6 wks, and that's pretty rare. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  6. You can follow your licensing process by registering here for both the state License and CDS #. https://newjersey.mylicense.com/eGov/Login.aspx
  7. in NJ, you can't work without a license, especially in hospital. It can take a long time to get licensed in NJ especially if you are not a new grad. As a new grad, my licensing process took less than a month after graduation (could have taken less but I delayed paying the licensing fee by more than a week). 1. As a new grad, you could get temp license until your result for the PANCE become available, the license is expired once you get the result. One other caveat is that you can't get credentialed with a temp license either. 2. Credentialing can take a long time, even longer in NJ because you'll need your license (4-12 weeks), CDS (3-4 wks) and DEA (1 weeks). You need your CDS to apply for the DEA. You can call DEA one week after you submit the online application to fax you the DEA number (waiting for it in NJ takes forever) There is nothing you can do to expedite the process in NJ in the state level but you can start the credentialing process without none of the document listed above. I was lucky enough that my credentialing took about 2 months, really lucky.
  8. Yeah, I would pass as well. Surgery is a high salaried speciality, especially in big cities. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  9. LotsofMeds uses the same data as UTD. How is that different from UTD?
  10. What? Didn't you read what beattie228 write above? RUN! look for another job, break the contract if you have to but don't work there.
  11. Honestly I think PrepU is more complete than Rosh review, though easier than Rosh. Downside of PrepU is the interface and limitations of 20 questions max, no time test. Rosh was trickier than the PANCE and had some mistakes in there too. I finished 65 % of Rosh, didn't like it that much. Spent most of my time of PrepU until it expired then went with Rosh. But that's my preference, your opinion may differ. And for Review, I used PPP and DynaMed Plus. I've been using DynaMed Plus for the last 2 yrs, I know how to navigate it when looking for information. It's a great companion to PPP. Better than UTD in my opinion. Just continue doing what you are doing. You did pretty well in the PACKRAT. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  12. I was scoring the same as you on Rosh and I pass with a good margin. But my main materials were Rosh, PrepU, DynaMed Plus, PPP and his question book. Had 180 on PACKRAT at the end of clinical, predicted PANCE was 500, actually did better than predicted. Study for two intense weeks before the PANCE. Took it a week after graduation. The PANCE will be like nothing you've seen before but it's easier than I had imagined and that would caught you off guard. Just study and do as much questions as you possibly can. I did a total of 4500 questions. Just know it's just a test. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  13. Got my result today...PASSED as well. Took it on the 18th. I wasn't worried though but it's a relief to know that it's over. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  14. Congrats on those that passed! As for myself I'm still waiting :( Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
