  1. I'd look for something else. I've been doing UC for almost 1.5 years, I'm still learning, going on my own after 1 month would be hard. Also, no CME, no 401k, and no dental or vision...you're going to be a hard working PA in the urgent care, you deserve those.
  2. Oh yeah, I forgot to put in there, there is no non-compete clause. I can work somewhere else, they just have to sign off on it. The recruiter says it's never a problem and a lot of the PA's in their system work at other places on the side.
  3. Hi guys, new grad here. Received an offer for a hospital owned urgent care system. As a new grad, I was looking for somewhere I can continue to learn. They've told me that I'll be working with medical director first for a few weeks to a month, and then move onto double coverage with PA's who have agreed to mentor new hires/grads. They sent me an offer letter breaking down my employment, does this all look okay? x6 12 hours shifts every 2 weeks ~$92,600 annual salary (negotiating for a bit more) Extra shift OT at x1.25 hour when annual is broken down into hourly wage On call once a month for sick coverage or double coverage assistance, with extra shift pay at x1.25 if called in Up to 4% annual bonus DEA, license, society membership reimbursement Malpractice with tail covered Student loan assistance - 5k after 1 year, additional 5k after 2 years 403b 25 days PTO $3,000 CME plus 5 days off for CME medical, dental, vision Thanks!
  4. Thank you guys for all of your answers. I've been applying and had other interviews for other opportunities since this ER interview. It's just frustrating because almost all of my classmates are working at this point because they were able to network via rotations, and I relocated far away after school, so I wasn't able to network. I did get job offers on rotations, but those were in the city I was not going to end up. I sent thank you notes to all my interviewers after I spoke with them, so I think I've been respectful and courteous from my end. I don't know, maybe I've been pestering them a little bit...but they tell me one thing and don't follow up. I find the whole situation perplexing, as I have never encountered this during an application/interview process. Usually I was able to get some sort of feedback in a reasonable time, although my prior jobs were for smaller groups, and this is for a bigger corporation...
  5. New grad here. I recently interviewed for an emergency med position, which is what I want to work in. The opportunity seems great, community hospital, always working with a physician or two for assistance when I would need it, take care of mostly fast track and assist in main rooms when needed, and seeing about 2-3 patients per hour. Interviewed with recruiter over phone, and interviewed with head of department in person. I felt both interviews went really well, and I displayed I am able to work in a fast paced environment from pre-grad school experience as an EMT and scribe in an ER (I know not the best in terms of hands on, but got me in the mindset of working with acute complaints). So after the in-person interview I was told I'd hear back in 1-2 weeks. After that passed, no call/email. So I sent a small follow up to the head of the department, and was told there were another few interviews lined up and I would hear in about another week, no problem. 3rd and 4th week pass, no response. Call to follow up with recruiter, they're in a meeting, they'll call me back after. Whole day passes, no call back. Couple more days pass, call again, rings and goes to voicemail. Send a follow up email to head of department, 2-3 days pass, no response. I get that responses from bigger companies or hospitals can take a while, but is it common to not get any response at all when following up? I really think this position would be an amazing opportunity for me, which is why I don't want to give up on it. I also understand I'm not going to get every job I want, but I would like them to at least let me know so I can move on. Am I wrong thinking it's rude of them to not acknowledge or give a short update? What would you guys do in this position?
  6. I second what EMEDPA said. I'm currently a scribe and was an EMT in the past. Scribing is great because you learn how the whole process of initial eval with history and physical, and then diagnostics and interpreting them. You learn how a provider thinks in terms of treating patients. You can see some cool cases too. But it's totally different than being in charge for the health and well being of another individual. Working as an EMT, CNA, respiratory therapist, etc lets you know if you can interact and have a proper relationship with patients. I'd do both if you could. They each give something unique
  7. Thanks!! It was verified on 8/13/14
  8. Just got an invite for the 30th. Not sure if I'm going to take it, as I just put down a heavy deposit for another school
  9. Getting ready to put down my deposit, just waiting for my next paycheck. Coming all the way from California. Excited to come to NYC!!
  10. I applied in mid-August and just received my supplemental invitation.
  11. Congrats!! Were you sitting at the table near the fridge?
  12. Just got my acceptance email! I interviewed this past Tuesday on 11/11
  13. Hey guys, Just wanted to get a quick opinion for what I wear to an upcoming interview. I want to stay professional, but at the same time would like to stand out from the rest of the crowd. I'm wearing a dark grey suit, but I need help with my shirt and tie. Would it be too much to wear a lightly pin striped shirt with a checkered tie or a light blue checkered shirt with a checkered pattern as well? Or should I stay with the standard white shirt? Thanks!
  14. Just got an invite for an interview! Trying to decide between Nov 11 or 18th. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Good luck to everyone else!
  15. Hey guys, I am looking into possibly applying to a post bacc program. I've completed all the typical prerequisites for PA school, so I'm looking more for a program that will assist in improving my overall academic record. After searching, some seem more geared to medical school applicants. Does anyone know of any good post pacc programs for PA applicants? Thanks
