  1. Hello, I am a physician assistant student who will be graduating in May. I am interested in joining either the Navy or Air Force. I have no prior military experience and I am concerned about what type of fit this will be. I have talked to a few recruiters and I am still unsure if the loan repayment would be worth the time put in, my goal is to pay off these loans ASAP. Also, it is my understanding that even with the bonuses (which I would use to repay loans) the base salary is significantly lower than that of a civilian job.
  2. Hello, I'm a PA student on clinical rotations now trying to secure a psychiatry rotation in Tallahassee, FL. The office manager I spoke to asked me many questions about what a PA practicing in Florida can do in psychiatry. I was unable to answer some of her questions about prescribing medication. I told her I thought PAs in FL could not prescribe controlled substances. She went on to say they employ NPs who had to acquire special certification in psych to write and fill certain medications, My questions are, are there options for PAs to become certified in something to give them more privileges, what exactly can PAs do in psychiatry and what resources are available for me to look this stuff up myself? Thank you, Amy
  3. Hello, I am a PA student at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA. I am originally from central Florida and I accepted a seat from SHU due to their late admission process. That being said I have no desire to work in the PA area and hope to come back to FL to practice upon graduation. Unfortunately, SHU has not established any agreements with preceptors in the central FL area (most likely because it is so far away). I am hoping to set up most, if not all of my rotation sites at home. I am looking for preceptors in: geriatrics, general surgery, primary care, internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, emergency medicine and OB/GYN. My rotations will be from May 2014 to May 2015. They are each about 4 weeks long and I need to work approximately 40 hours a week. Any assistance or advice about how to accomplish this would be very much appreciated! Thank you, Amy
  4. Hello, Just wanted to see who else will be attending Seton Hill in Jan. 2013. I got my acceptance letter today. Maybe we can start a Facebook group??? Congrats, to those who did!
  5. Going for an interview soon, just wondering what the process was like? (i.e. did they have an essay question, what was the essay question, and what questions they asked) I've already been to a Ft. Lauderdale interview and wish I had been better prepared.
