  1. Hi guys, I am a new PA, just finished my first 6 months working in primary care. What are the requirements for supervising physicians to co-sign charts beyond the 6 month mark? From reading the state regulations, aside from the "selection" of charts reviewed at the quarterly reviews, there's no other requirement for charts to be co-signed? What do your supervising physicians do in your practice? Seems odd to have no charts at all reviewed except at the quarterly review....... Also does anyone have a document they use for the quarterly reviews? Thanks!
  2. Thanks so much! That really helps! I'm going to keep an open mind while in clinicals and see what's available once I graduate, but it's nice to have an idea of what to expect. Thanks for the help!
  3. I am a PA student getting ready to start clinicals. I am very interested in emergency med, and have structured my electives accordingly. Can anyone give me their experience with hours/shifts that they work in ER or Urgent care? I have two kids, and would prefer a set day shift with no call. I like the idea of being able to do 12 hour shifts, hopefully only doing three a week, but I don't want to work nights/weekends. Is this possible in emergency med? Is it possible in urgent care/fast track? What would the salary be? If it's not possible, I would like to know now so I can start thinki

  5. Thanks! There were 16 people interviewing that day, I don't know if anyone else was accepted.
  6. Hi! I submitted my CASPA application in May, and it was mailed out to the schools in June. I got an interview invitation from MU the first week in August.......I interviewed yesterday, the 9th and they let me know later that afternoon that I was accepted.
  7. Just heard back that I'm accepted!!! It was great meeting some of you guys there today! I'm looking forward to starting class with you all in May!
  8. My mistake, I was under the impression that Oct 9th was the first interview. Congratulations on everyone's interviews! As everyone else, I also received an email invitation followed by a letter.
  9. The 9th is the first interview, and I was told they will be getting back "very quickly" with applicants. From prior years they have gotten back within a week, sometimes even just a couple of days. I don't know how many total people they are interviewing......they will probably just decide as they go depending on how well the first interviews go.
  10. Thank you!! I'm sure you all will hear soon as well! I submitted my application in June, which is also when I took the GRE. My app "mailed" about two weeks later at about the same time that my GRE scores would have been sent, so thy had everything from me by the end of June.
  11. Just got an interview invite today!!! I interview Tuesday, October 9th, very excited! Hope to see you all there!
  12. Hi! I haven't heard anything yet either. I know their interviews start around the second week in October, but I don't know when they send out invites. I wish they had their own listing under the PA schools section.........I emailed the administrator awhile back about adding them, but never got a reply. Hope you hear something soon! Good luck!
  13. Thank you so much for answering my previous question! I ended up emailing the schools and offering my explanation for choosing to not waive my right to view my LOR's, and I got really nice responses back from all of them. I have another question now.............I just received an interview invitation to a school that was my second choice (which I'm very excited about!) and was given the option of two different dates. From talking to past accepted students, this school generally sends out acceptance notices within two weeks of the interview. I want to have a chance to interview with the sc
  14. Thank you so much for all the information! I have a question on waiving your right to view your LOR........ I have already submitted my CASPA application, and I chose NOT to waive my right. I have since been told that nearly everyone waives their right and my application will probably be thrown out because it will be a "red flag". My reason for not waiving was because for my first LOR I had asked my supervising Radiologist if he would write one for me, and he ended up writing it and emailing it to me before I had a chance to send him the link for electronic submission on CASPA. He of c
