  1. Not 1955. But females are generally more catty towards other females and not to mention insecure .
  2. That’s another reason I will never work for a female boss !!!
  3. I barely see my SP. Clinic staff has never worked with a new grad before and they low key ridicule me on my shortcomings .. so hard to find a new job at this time.
  4. new grad PA here working in small mom n pop clinic. Not only I have to deal with socioeconomic issues , crazy patient but with the toxic office culture as well. I am expected to see train wrecks , complex patients without any supervision or training. Each passing day , I am just more and more unhappy. I feel dumb every single day ....
  5. Hi there I am a recent graduate and one year into my career. I have been looking into several DMS programs and would like to enroll in a year or so. Has anyone attended LMU DMS program ? I am particularly interested in the internal medicine track.
  6. Another PA eaten alive by a NP. I thought I was the only victim ... ;(
  7. Yup they preyed on a naive new grad . Back to job search in these glowing times
  8. Well , as a new grad I couldn't put up a fight. I was told by the hostile NP that I have to learn hospital politics. Right now , my main priority is to learn practicing medicine and not be involved in petty games.
  9. I was in the similar situation as a new grad PA. My department has never seen or heard of a 'PA' so much so that they could not even figure out how to out Physician Assistant on my employee badge. SO I settled for only my name as my ID. Anyways , my CT surgeon played a classic bait n switch on me about giving me training and all. He completely backed off his promises the day I started and barely had any communication with me . The NPs on the floor were super hostile and threatened. they keep questioning my training and knowledge. To their amusement , I had little exposure to critical care in my school and hence failed miserably . Long story short , I did not feel safe in that environment and quit yesterday. Not sure , when will I be able to find another job but at least I am not on the verge of loosing my sanity and my license. You can't win with these NPs.
  10. I don’t have any hospital experience except for my IM rotation . I am not comfortable seeing patients on my own at this time . ;(
  11. Hi I graduated in August 2019 and have been looking for a job since then. Finally I was offered my 'dream job' of hospital medicine. It's a group of IM physicians who also cover three hospitals. I will be required to see 12-13 patients in three different hospitals and 6-7 patients in clinic the same day. There is no formal training except for 4-5 day orientation. The doctor is very confident that I can see 20 patients all by myself since I graduated from 'Duke'. He is offering my $120,000 and location is ideal since its only 15 minutes from my place but the idea of seeing 20 patients all by myself is quiet daunting and I am not way shape or form ready for it. At the same time job market is so saturated in my area. Am I making a mistake If I decline this offer???????????
  12. Hi there Any nocturnes hospitalist in the group ? Would like your opinion on night shift versus day shift ? What are some of the pros and cons ?What are some of the responsibilities that differ from day shift? Thanks in advance.
  13. I love reading your blogs. Thanks for sharing your experience. :)
  14. I have had an ENT surgeon once belittle me for pursuing PA school. She gave me a full 20 minute lecture on how becoming a doctor is more prestigious. :/
