  1. Thanks for your input. I'll get some more information on the details of that clause.
  2. Hi all, I'm a current student, and was just offered a position at a teaching institution in the midwest as a hospitalist PA. I hope to get some feedback from those of you who are more experienced than I. I think most of these offers I read about on the forum are great because they are all more money than I could have ever dreamed someone would pay me. I've outlined the major details of the position below. What am I forgetting to think about? Seems like a great package to me, but wanted to run it by some more eyes first. Schedule 7 days on/7 days off. No extra CME or personal PTO as I'
  3. Hello, I have searched the forum quite a bit and haven't come across any international rotation threads since 2011, and none that were particularly helpful. Have any of you done an international rotation in a Spanish speaking country? I am hoping to organize one for next year (May 2014 - May 2015). Our program allows us to do international rotations, but we are required to submit information for review. I am looking for something 4 weeks in length, located in a Spanish speaking country. I am hoping that someone can provide a name, organization, or website that they are confident re
  4. Hi paadmissions, Thanks for answering all of these questions. I did my best to check that this wasn't answered already. I was recently accepted into one of my top choice PA schools and have until early next week to respond with a verbal yes/no. Within the next two weeks a deposit of several hundred dollars is due to financially secure my spot in the class. I am very excited about this program and feel it would be a great fit. That being said, it was my first and only official tour and interview so far. Additionally, I have an interview this Friday with my other top choice school.
  5. Hi all, With the two rounds of interviews coming up in the next few weeks, I am wondering if anyone who has gone through it can comment on the style and feel of the LaCrosse/Mayo/Gunderson interviews. So far, I've gathered that there are two panels, one representing UW-Lax, and the other Mayo/Gunderson. I also understand that a group of three candidates will interview together with each of these panels. Can anyone comment on the nature of the interaction (conversational, rigid, etc) with the panel? Are the questions experience based, behavioral based ("tell me about a time when...
  6. Hi paadmissions, Thanks for fielding some questions. I am curious if members of PA admission committees ever think anything along the lines of "this person belongs in medical school". If yes, at what point in the process does this usually surface (I would guess the interview)? What is it that produces this thought? Thanks!
  7. This has been one of the top reasons for me choosing PA over MD as well. In addition, I have been told by two family practice MDs that "it all comes down to lifestyle". While I am a hard worker and dedicated, I don't want my life to be consumed by my profession. I would like to get a sense of the actual difference in lifestyle, work/life balance, whatever you want to call it, between PAs and MDs. I realize that both are demanding, challenging careers. I am in no sense looking to hear that being a PA is "easier", so please don't reply with that idea in mind. Thanks for your ideas!
