  1. Don't do it. I feel like every couple of months, a new grad posts a questionable job offer. The general consensus from the forum is to not take it. For whatever reason, the new grad decides to take the offer ... and then a few short months later there is another post from the new grad asking for advice on how to quit a job with <3-6 months time on station. Don't be a statistic. Keep looking. Good luck, I hope another job offer comes your way soon.
  2. The deadline for receipt of complete application packet for the next class is Feb 13. The support staff are super responsive to questions.
  3. Hey, I'm a fellow new grad. I would pass on this offer - low pay and super niche specialty are my reasons why. I will reiterate what has been posted in your other dicussion topic. 1. Your feelings of not being ready to practice are not uncommon. Impostor Syndrome is a legit thing. Your thoughts seem to be almost paralyzing, though, and impeding your progress and growth. You would probably benefit from talking with a therapist to work through it all. 2. If you want training, consider a residency/fellowship. 3. Consider moving for better job opportunities. Good luck.
  4. @karebear12892 Does the Carolinas EM Fellowship cover DMSc tuition costs as well?
  5. If you join AAPA, you'll receive a free copy of the most recent salary report.
  6. Hi all, Apologies if this question has already been asked ... I am contemplating applying for an EM residency in the next year or two. I have 9/11 GI Bill eligibility remaining. Has anyone been able to use their GI Bill benefits while in a residency/fellowship? I know that MDs/DOs are eligible to claim GI Bill benefits while completing their residency training. I contacted the VA Bill Certifying official at a couple of residency programs that interest me. I was told that none of them had filed benefit paperwork for a PA in residency, but that they would be willing to submit. Thanks much!
  7. ED, recent new grad with almost 3 months on the job. Central California - an area where new development home prices start in mid $300k. I work 180 hrs/month (18 × 10 hr shifts). I also accrue another 8-10 hrs/month for dictation. With cashing out of PTO, I anticipate making between $170-180K for my first year.
  8. 1. Book: EM Case Files provides a good overview 2. Online/live course: EM Boot Camp (before you spend the money, you should check with your employer to see if there are plans to make this option available to you)
  9. I recently graduated PA school on the east coast ... not quite the Deep South, but you will still find sweet tea on menus. New grad pay in that area is mid $80s ... but that is for positions that do not involve call/night shifts. My friends with jobs that involve call/night shift are compensated for their time with salaries in the $90s/100s+. I know you're trying to stay close to home, but you may want to consider opening up your radius even more, networking, and possibly working with headhunters/recruiters. I've read it many times on this forum ... and heard it from school faculty. For new grads, pick 2 of 3: 1) Location, 2) Pay, 3) Specialty. For me, pay and specialty were the most important ... and I currently find myself with a well-paying job for a great company in my desired specialty in California. Good luck with your search!
