  1. My internal medicine EOR is coming up. I have smarty pance and rosh review (but not the boost exam). I've been studying a lot using smarty pance. Are those practice questions about on par with the PAEA EOR difficulty? I was using rosh review but a lot of those questions seemed super high level compared to what I remember from the PACKRAT so I wasn't sure which ones were better to study with or most similar to the EOR
  2. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT, ME, and/or MA Thank you in advance!!
  3. Hello, I have been working in family med the past few months as a PA and am looking for opinions from switching from family med to hospitalists? what are opinions on switching jobs? Stress load of hospitalist position vs family med? thanks !!
  4. I have ~5 years of experience. This offer is from a big hospital with a well integrated PA practice, in a moderate cost-of-living area. - Salary 125K. - 12 hour shifts with 1:3 weekends and 1:4 nights. Required to work 2 federal holidays per year. Shift differential amounts to ~5K per year by my calculation. - 403b with 2% match. - Pension (!) vested at 3 years of service. - Health insurance 80/20 until out of pocket max. Vision and dental through reimbursement account that is pretty generously funded, IMO. FSA and dependent care accounts available. - 22 days PTO, includes sick time. - 4K dedicated CME funds, plus 5 days CME time separate from PTO. Unclear about malpractice coverage. I'm pretty pleased with the offer since it's a step up from my current salary and the benefits seem good but I would welcome outside perspectives. This is the first time I've ever come across someplace still offering a pension, so I don't know how to look at that. The way the nights and weekends are structured seems like a lot of work but I don't know if it's worth arguing about with the salary being what it is. I was also told that a lot of the PAs in the group prefer weekends and nights and are often wanting to trade for them (no guarantees, of course).
  5. I am about halfway through my clinical year as a PA student and I was wanting to hear from PAs who went on to pursue a fellowship in internal medicine. I really loved my internal medicine rotation and I want to dive in and work through the minutia of internal medicine for a longer period of time before I jump into practicing full-time. Is the Carolinas Healthcare Fellowship for Advanced Practice Clinicians a good option to pursue further education?
  6. Dear East Bay PAs, I begin PA school in January of 2018 and beginning in March our program is placing us into what they call Longitudinal Clinical Experience (LCE), where we spend time in a primary care, family practice or internal medicine practice for 4-5 hours one day a week for the remainder of the didactic year (through December 2018) in order to get mentorship and training in patient care. I have been in research and healthcare for a long time now (7+ years), and have quite a bit of prior clinic experience and patient exposure across the UCSF network both in San Francisco and Oakland. Unfortunately because my work has always been in specialty clinics I do not have a network of colleagues and prior mentors in primary care/internal medicine. If you are a certified PA, MD or DO in primary care/IM in the Contra Costa or Alameda counties and are willing to accept a student in 2018, I would love the opportunity to speak with you. I am happy to send my CV to you as well. If you know anyone who might be interested, I would appreciate your referral as well. Thanks very much!
  7. My fellow PAs I wanted your opinion or experience with contracts. I was offered a position in Outpatient Internal Medicine working for a private physician . I have over two years experience in Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine. The salary is $110,000, no health insurance I would be under my husbands plan, $500 for CME, 3 weeks paid vacation plus holidays, no mention of sick/personal days. The hours are Monday to Friday 8-5 pm this includes 1 hour lunch that is not paid and every third Saturday 8-12. There is 401k plan and malpractice coverage. What are your thoughts? I am concerned on the schedule since it will be more than 40 hours per week on average that I am expected to be in the office. And there is no mention of personal days plus the CME $$ I also feel is very low. Also there is restricted covenant of 15 miles for 2 years after leaving employment which I think is standard for these positions?

  9. Hey all, I've been a licensed PA for about 9 months, working for the past 5 months. I took my first job as a general medical provider/psychiatry PA at a locked psychiatric hospital in a rural area. It is a very, very poor environment to be an APP in many ways, thus I am already seeking an out. I certainly don't feel comfortable with practicing medicine yet and I'm getting zero training/supervision by my current physician. However, I interviewed and was accepted into a primary care fellowship at a very well-respected academic center in my current city which would start in July. I am hopeful that some of you current or past residents/fellows can give me some insight on your training and your practice ability after the fellowship/residency ended. In my area (Midwest) fellowships and residencies for APPs are just now starting to appear so 99% in my area don't have them. The details are as follows: Mostly internal medicine specialty rotations, some urgent care, some FP rotations (+/- rural FP/ER, depending on the location), didactics, research, examinations, presentations, etc. It's 12 months in length. The hospital system has stated that they "plan to place all fellows in positions with the system after completion of training". I realize this is not a guarantee, but I'm also not bound to take a position with the hospital afterward either, so that clause is fine with me. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to practice in medicine, which is one reason I chose to become a PA - so I could switch if need be. I like so many areas of medicine, which is why I think doing a primary care residency would be great option for me. But, I want to see what other residents/graduates think of their experience and how they were received by employers after the fact.

  11. Hi, I am currently a Pre-Health student. I am torn between becoming a PA or MD. I have a strong interest in perusing internal medicine and I was wondering what life is like for internal medicine PAs. What's the day to day like? Average salary? Scope of practice? Hours worked? I know a lot of specialities allow PAs to have a lot of autonomy and I was wondering if this was one of those specialities. I don't mind working under a doctor, but I want to have a decent amount of autonomy.
  12. Hi Future Colleagues! My name is Aaron Shaw. I graduated in 2015 from the University of Toledo Medical Center PA School. I have been practicing Neurosurgery the past year in College Station, Texas. Over the past two years I have been writing a book for: Students going into PA school, Current PA students, MD Students, DO Students and NP Students. On February 15th, 2017 my book was published and it is on Amazon for sale! Honestly I wish I had a book like this before and during PA school as life would have been much easier. I used this book and purchased a few practice tests from the NCCPA before taking the PANCE and passing it with flying colors the first time! It is my hope that you will check out my new book and hopefully make your study sessions much higher yield! Below is the Amazon website for my book! All the best to all those applying to PA school and for those studying for the PANCE. https://www.amazon.com/Medical-Rotations-Time-Succeed-Training/dp/0692836616/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487803712&sr=8-1&keywords=medical+rotations Thanks, Aaron Shaw, MSBS PA-C
