  2. Does anyone work for or know of someone that works for Rush University Medical Center in Chicago? I am wondering what their emergency medicine advanced practice provider compensation model is like considering they are one of the only hospital institutions that don't use the EM staffing companies (TeamHealth, Envision, VEP, Vituity, etc.). How have you found their rates/benefits to compare to the staffing companies if you've worked for them previously?
  3. Hello all, Recent new graduate here. I just received an offer from a small private, moderately paced urgent care/primary care office and I have a few questions about some items in my contract. Not sure if the items are reasonable for PAs in my area and looking to get some feedbacks from actual PAs in practice rather than just my parents. Here are a few details of my contract: - 18 month contract with required 90 days written notice of termination - 96K salary with bump after completing "training CME" courses paid for by the practice. 17 weeks to complete the courses and salary

  7. Hi everyone, I'm currently 3 months into my clinical year at a PA program in Ohio, but I'm looking for rotations in downtown Chicago area where I'm originally from. So far I've only been able to find one rotation at a hospital I used to work at. Anybody have any advice or have any leads on finding more clinical sites?

  11. Hello Illinois! I am a second year PA student at Barry University in Miami, FL. I am very interested in finding a rotation in Chicago in Ob/Gyn, preferably in perinatology/maternal-fetal medicine for next year. Obstetrics and gynecology have always greatly interested me, but I eagerly welcome the opportunity to learn about high risk pregnancies. I am aware that some locations require a rotation in Ob/Gyn before working in a specialized field like perinatology, and I would be happy to first complete an OB rotation if needed. ​In regards to affiliation with Barry University, the clinic
  12. Hello, I ordered official GRE scores to sent to specific school's CASPA accounts on 5/7 and they haven't posted to CASPA yet. I'm ready to e-submit. If I e-submit now, will those official scores be visible to schools after the fact? Or should I wait to submit until they're showing up in my CASPA. Thanks!
  13. Is there any hope for someone who has attended and dropped out of multiple colleges over the past 8 years due to lack of direction and motivation? How much worse would it be if his/her overall gpa is 2.5 and science gpa is 2.0? Long story short, I had no idea what to do with my life and my grades fluctuated dramatically due to lack of motivation at times. I took a year off to figure out what I want in life, improve my study skills, and explore the medical field. Now I know, without doubt, that I want to be a PA, but I'm afraid I've already done too much damage with the constant droppin
  14. Just wondering if people had advice/opinions on these two programs. Rush is a newer program and Midwestern is a little more established. -Does anyone have any insight on which may overall have better clinical rotations/job placement? -Is the extra 6 months at Rush going to be a great advantage in terms of getting hired? -Is Rush still working out the kinks of being a newer program (started in 2010)? -Does Midwestern still have good downtown Chicago rotations? Advice would be greatly appreciated on any of the questions!
  15. When filling out RCC's application do you mark N/A for EVERY single line that did not apply to you? For example under Education if you have only attended one school would you mark N/A for every line under that? Seems a little redundant but I want to be sure the instructions are followed precisely. The instructions say "Do not leave any responses blank--if a section does not apply to you, indicate N/A" Any help is appreciated...
