    Any good EM specific CME websites out there? Thanks
  5. It's Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine..not school...just remember that for the interview ;) -Recent grad
  6. Some of the programs I applied to requested my undergrad transcripts, but they were not brought up during the interviews.
  7. why didn't you take the boards again? why haven't you practiced medicine since graduating? why do you want to work as a PA now as opposed to 12 years ago? be prepared to answer those questions at an interview...
  8. Pocket Medicine was a GREAT resource and I highly recommend it. Mine had a gray cover. The green cover is internal med based, which was great for that rotation also.
  9. I just completed my elective in emergency medicine out in Colorado Springs. There is a group of docs/pas that staff Penrose Main Hospital and St. Francis Medical Center. The group is called Front Range Emergency Specialists. I had a very good experience with them. Every one I worked with was very welcoming of me and liked to teach. Hope this helps.
  10. I am doing the UMDNJ one now. A few of my classmates recommended it to me. It follows the blueprint. There are 5 modules each with about 5 hours of lecture. There are post-tests after each module. I take the PANCE in 17 days so hopefully it helps me! If you decide to get it type "student" in the promotional code area and it will save you $68, for a cost of $279 for the course.
  11. I applied to a few EM residency/fellowship programs. It all depends on the number of applicants they accept. This ranges anywhere from 1-8. I went to two interviews. One of the places said they were interviewing 20 or so people for 2 spots. I didnt ask how many applied. The other program I applied to interviewed about 30 and chose 8. They said about 36 people applied. Hope this helps.
  12. i lived at lincoln green on presidential blvd during the didactic year. I liked it. Less than a mile to school. You can walk if you want. Also, Manayunk is nice. Others in the class lived at Presidential City.

  15. I just found out about the Providence EMPA postgrad program yesterday and sent an email to the coordinator. I will likely apply. I am looking into the MA, CT, RI area. Congrats on your job. Sounds like a good situation to be in.
  16. Thank you for your response. I interviewed a week and a half ago at a postgrad program and am waiting to hear back. They had at least 10 more applicants to interview from what I understood, but I loved it there. Everyone was so nice and I could tell I'd be well educated and prepared for any EM job if I completed the postgrad program. Just a waiting game now.
  17. Hello everyone, I will be graduating in July, taking the PANCE in August. I know I want a career in EM and am doing another elective in the field. I have applied to four postgrad residency/fellowship programs and about five jobs in EM. I would like to do a postgrad training program if given the opportunity. Every job posting for EM I have searched all require at least 1 year of experience. I am looking at hospitals in Boston and the surrounding area. Am I applying to these jobs to early? What is everyone's general opinion on a new grad getting a job in an ER and their responsibilities? How would a seasoned PA/MD view a new grad in the ER? Salary for a new grad in the ER? Training as a new hire? Any input I appreciate. Thanks.
