  1. Hello all, I was offered a full-time job in an emergency department in a low cost of living area and was looking for some thoughts on it. Overall I think it's a good offer being a new grad in a field that can be difficult to get into. Here's the details: Wage: 60/hr first year with $10/hr nighttime differential. Increases to $65/75 the 2nd year. 140 hrs/ month requirement. 1.5x pay for anything over 40 hours and holidays. 144hrs PTO - unused paid out at the end of each year. Additional 40hrs long-term sickness which accrues each year $2,500 CME.... I pay for licens
  2. Hi, So here's the story. I am beginning my first rotation and it is in the ED (no previous ED or UC experience). My preceptors are all very nice and willing to help, but I can't help but feeling like I am neither measuring up nor reflecting my program well. I wanted to get some feedback to gauge if this is a normal experience, as there are no other PA students at my site to compare notes with. I received an hour training on the EHR and beginning the second day was expected to see a few patients on my own and present them to my preceptor with assessment and plan. This wouldn't be a p
  3. I am considering becoming a paramedic to get some clinical experience before becoming a physician assistant. Anyone else doing this? I am 26 years old and my main reason for thinking about going this route before PA School is because I just recently got out of the Navy where I was a Corpsman so I do have more than enough patient contact hours in many settings but am also married with kids. My wife is finishing up PT school so I do have to work a well paying job while she finishes up school. I am a RMA as well but they do not make that much and the job is really boring as far as what I am used
  4. I will be graduating soon and will be moving to Manhattan this summer. Are there any hospitals in the area that hire new PA grads to work the ER? EMed would be my top choice but the sense that I am getting is that new grads are generally not hired in the Manhattan are to work in the ED. I also know that NYP Cornell has a residency program for EMed, maybe that's where they pool their new grads from? I would be interested in looking for a position rather than a residency! Anyone that moved from a different field into EMEd in Manhattan? Thanks!
  5. I start PA school this fall, and I am extremely excited. Extremely excited! In my program, after 4 semesters of preclinical studies, we will rotate through 7 clerkships, and finish with 2 elective rotations. I expect that during school, my experiences will shape my decisions-but I am unable to resist the urge to plan now. I look at these extra rotations as an opportunity to refine my top-choices for specialty, if I haven't already. Here are the 7: Family Medicine Clerkship Internal Medicine Clerkship General Surgery Clerkship Pediatric Clerkship Geriatric Clerkship
  6. Hey, Sorry if this is a repost but I couldn't find anything on this forum about the actual interview process for ER Tech positions. I have an interview Friday morning at a big (>30 bed) Level 1 trauma center and I am pretty nervous about my chances to get the "emergency services technician" position. I have my EMT-B and have a little (read very little) experience volunteering in another hospital ER and some experience on a squad but not a ton outside of what I did through school to get my cert (maybe 36 total hours with local FD on 911 calls). I do however have about a year of experienc
  7. Hey all - I was wondering what the work dynamic between you and your attending physicians is? For instance, do the attendings see all the patients you see? Are some places more autonomous and the attendings will only see the really sick patients? How many patients are you expected to see in a shift? How many patients are you expected to manage at a given time? I have been doing EM for about 18 months and had one month of orientation. This is my first job out of school. During a fast track shift, the attending will not see any of my patients unless I have a question or concern about a pa
