  1. Thank you all for the kind words! Stay tuned for our next episode on.... SHOCK !
  2. Hi everyone! My name is Jer & I'm currently a practicing PA in pulmonary/critical care medicine in the SE. I and a few other PA colleagues started a pulm/cc podcast called Pulmcast as a way to educate and spark debate among our providers (who are all separated at different hospitals, on different shifts, at different times). Over time it's sort-of morphed into more of a MedEd hub - blogs, videos, podcasts, core content summaries & interviews. We try to release an episode a few times a month. In keeping with the ethos of #FOAMed (free, open access medical education), it's free to everyone with no ads or paywall. Would love to hear what you think - check us out if you are interested and please share - thanks!! Our website iTunes Follow us on Social Media too! Instagram Facebook Twitter
  3. We are all salaried but our group builds in 1 hr overlap on each shift for signout and incidentals (i.e. we are paid to be on shift 13 hours but often leave after 12-12.5). 9x/10 we leave ~30 minutes early, but for the times we have to stay late, there's a time buffer.
  4. Hey guys. In honor of PA week, the program has a new Facebook page. Head over and like it to keep up with what's happening at Emory! https://www.facebook.com/EmoryPA
  5. Hi everyone! I am a 1st year PA student and one of our assignments is to interview PAs in various specialties. I was assigned Allergy/Immunology and I'm looking to ask a PA working in the specialty a few questions. See below--thank you! What is a typical day like? What are your core responsibilities as an Allergy/Immunology PA? Are you working in a rural/urban/suburban area? Hospital/clinic? Are there any additional certifications or affiliations you have to work in your specialty? Thanks again!

  7. Are these still available? If anyone has PACKRATS, send them to avenued704@gmail.com please and thank you!
  8. I'm in Anatomy with cadaver dissections right now. It's brutal and tedious but I can say that once you go digging for a pudendal nerve for 4 hours, you know everything about it. Dissections give you a much better understanding of anatomy than a textbook alone. Just my opinion.
  9. JAS, They meet once per month to go over interviewee files and decide on admissions. They haven't let us (first year students) in on what those dates are. That said, last year, I interviewed on October 5th and found out in mid November. Other people interviewed in late October/early November and found out at the same time as me. It all depends on when you interview and when they decide to have meetings! When they meet, each interviewee will be placed on 1. Accept, 2. Reject or 3. Delay decision until next meeting (the following month). If you are accepted, they will call you personally. If you are rejected, they will write you a detailed letter explaining how you can improve. I'm not entirely sure what the protocol is for the delayed decision. Hope that helps!
  10. Agree! Like G said, just be yourself. If you were offered an interview, they already know you have what it takes. The purpose of the interview is to find out about who you are as an individual. No website can help you with that! Good luck tomorrow everyone.
  11. See you Oct. 4th interviewees during lunch this Friday! Good luck everyone!
  12. I am starting PA school (tomorrow actually) and I just graduated in May. It's more than doable. Life was a little crazy during undergrad--I worked midnights as a tech on a cardio/progressive care floor while taking anywhere from 18-21 credits each semester (I had no major freshman year and took some courses I didn't need, but I still wanted to graduate in 4 years). I think I ended up with around 3500 patient care hours and a decent GPA. Depending on what connections/certifications you do/don't have, it may take some work to get decent HCE.
  13. I was a CNA for two years and a MT after that. If I had not worked as a CNA, I wouldn't have any HCE as far as the schools I applied to we're concerned. As a MT I was far removed from patients, I watched their rhythms from across the hospital. Just my two cents.
  14. Some programs are not so fond of science Pre reqs being taken online. I'd double check with the PA schools you want to apply to. If it were me, I'd go for then health sciences or a BIO degree--but that's just my personal preference.
