  1. Also agree with ronin: email- save the phone story for after you get the job. Sorry I missed your call, I'm very interested in the position. I'll call you Monday etc or something like that. Everyone misses cell calls- avoid the desperation angle and go for it.
  2. Sorry this happened to you. Forgive me if you already have this figured out: I had similar problems after updating my phone- It is very easy to turn" Do Not Disturb" on by accident ( shows as crescent moon at very top of your screen). Depending on settings it may only ring if they call 2x in 3 min or less. Go to settings or swipe up from the bottom and tap the crescent moon icon. Good luck with the dream job.
  3. A story on the Gupta Guide- MedPage Today. Comments on Turf Wars (see derm issue above) and notes lack of response from PA's/NP's. (Ed. Note: we reached out to a society, a number of PAs and NPs and did not receive responses) http://www.medpagetoday.com/TheGuptaGuide/Surgery/47337
  4. Looks like a strike by Anesthesia at nurse anesthetists in chronic pain mgt but throw's PA's under the bus on CS prescriptive authority. http://www.medpagetoday.com/PainManagement/PainManagement/44524?xid=nl_mpt_DHE_2014-03-01&utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=DailyHeadlines&utm_source=WC&eun=g-1d0r&userid=-1&email=aktlr2@mac.com&mu_id=-1
  5. He also complained about "Doctors being replaced by computers". Apparently he's in on the ground floor on this one: " He is the founder of VitalSpring Technologies Inc., a privately held enterprise software company focused on providing employers with applications to empower them to become more sophisticated purchasers of health care." And I thought he was against it!
  6. I would pay attention to your shadowing and HCE if you are near minimum there. Don't underestimate statistics for helping you understand and evaluate evidence based medicine. I wouldn't worry about a 3.0 overall so much as I would just make sure to kill it in your remaining prerequisites. I guess you have to factor in the GRE if you are Master's track but otherwise buff HCE and get a credible (not a career) amount of shadowing so you can demonstrate knowledge of the profession. Take a look at all the elements of your application and make sure you are credible, well rounded and focused on the MEDEX mission. P. S.: Good Luck!
  7. I found one on Craigslist Anchorage, the phone number in the header is a Cayman Island area code. I'm not going to reply nor do I suggest that anyone else try to educate these scammers. It's a very convenient way to identify phishing efforts. It'll be much harder when they start offering $85/hr. :) Physician Assistant (anchorage) . Part of the responsibilties would include examing patients, checking patients medical history, diagnosing, interpreting and treating wound care patients, all procedures involved are performed at the bedside. Location: anchorage Compensation: $15.00 per hour Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster. Please, no phone calls about this job! Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests. Posting ID: 3453842765 Posted: 2012-12-13, 10:43AM AKST email to a friend
  8. Thanks Shippy- I'm sure you're right about more calls to come. They have a huge job to pull together cohesive classes for 5 sites. Too early to throw in Jacob-
  9. Good luck to everyone. I got the call today!! Kansas phone number right after I landed! Hang in there- I'm sure it will take more than a few days to finalize the classes across all 5 sites. Best of luck! Props to the Anchorage folks in my interviews- I thought you both were great.Steve
  10. Same here- definitely take calls from Kansas! Congrats Kate!!
  11. Interviews went great- 36 strong candidates for all sites. It was really great to meet you all. I hope I get to see you again this summer. I got the call this afternoon-it's still sinking in. They told us up to 10 days for getting word and I'm sure they'll be working on it for several more days so hang in. Best of luck to everyone:)
  12. Congratulations Lily!! I'll see you this summer in Seattle- I got the call this afternoon (for Anchorage) !! Steve
  13. Congratulations Deana & Stephanie!! Everyone else hang tight :) See you in Seattle, Darren. Steve
  14. Good Luck everyone!! I'll see you there. Steve
