  1. I am a new grad PA practicing for about 4 months. I work in occ med/urgent care. Without getting into specifics. A patient had and intraarticular finger fracture. I treated/ splinted conservatively and referred the patient stat to a hand specialist on the date of injury, who did not get seen until 2 months after her date of injury, due to WC insurance. The patient was unable to have surgery due to the timing of being seen by the surgeon. The patient will have permanent and stationary deficits and need future medical care for possible joint fusion. The patient is currently undergoing PT. Not only did I do a disservice to the patient as far as ensuring timely care, but the referral department did as well. How do I manage this going further? Obviously try to regain as close to normal function prior to the patients injury. I am learning from this experience when referring, especially with intraarticular fractures. I feel like this is my first error in patient care that has affected the patients condition and has directly impacted the patients quality of life and functionality. How should I proceed? Any recommendations? Not looking for validation nor looking for critique (no more than I am already giving myself). Need suggestions on how to proceed further in my attitude and semi guilt with this case. Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi - I am a new graduate who passed the PANCE June 5th. I am looking for jobs in the NY/NJ area and spend each day looking at the job boards. Are there any other suggestions for where to search out jobs? I am interested in many fields- excluding surgery. I just want to be able to get a job and get some experience so I can become more competitive. With COVID19 hitting this area so hard, I know why it is difficult at this time but would like any advice I can get (as well as any possible leads!). Thank you for your time.
  3. I have a prior MS in Exercise Physiology (research emphasis) and then completed a dual degree PA program getting a MS in Management w/ the School of Business before starting the MMS for PA. The extra degrees will certainly be resume builders, but how much should I expect to use them for negotiating starting salaries? Should I expect a higher starting offer due to them or is that naive? Starting to have discussions with some practices and was hoping to get some ideas on the value those provide before it moves towards contract talks. I don't want to sell myself short, but don't want to come off as pompous and overvalue myself either! I would be interested in either Ortho/Sports Med or Cardiology Looking in NC. Currently in Winston-Salem, NC at Wake Forest University Appreciate the insight anyone can provide!
  4. Hello all, First time posting here. I am currently a PA-S2 with an expected graduation date of July 2020. I’m unsure about my career after graduating from PA School, and was wondering about any benefits that may come with joining the military after I become certified. Any and all information regarding life/work in specific branches is greatly appreciated as I have no information on the topic as of now. Thank you!
  5. Hello Everyone, I am graduating PA school in August and have been given a job offer in Gastroenterology. I am really excited for this job, but don't know how to negotiate the contract or if it is good enough as it stands. starting pay is $90,000 salary. mentions bonuses but does not have in writing a sign on bonus moving bonus, RVU performance, or pay raises. PTO 3 weeks, sick leave 1 week, CME 1 week. $1500 CME per year. year to year contract malpractice is included but does not mention a tail an 18 month non compete that covers two counties. I would cause irreparable damage if I break this non compete. my negotiating leverage (I was an endoscopy tech for two years. did my masters thesis on GERD. I speak Spanish fluently).
  6. Hello Fellow EM colleagues, I am a new graduate who will be starting in the emergency department this month. I am extremely excited to return to the ED after having worked in the ED as a technician for 6 years. I am looking for any recommendations on studying material, reference books, bootcamps etc anything that will help begin my career in EM. Thank you so much for any feedback!!! -New Grad
  7. Hello! I am currently awaiting a hard copy of a verbal offer given for a general surgery position. One of my preceptors told me to ask for a higher salary no matter what the original offer was. As a new grad, I am unsure how to go about asking for a higher salary. I was wondering if anyone had any general advice on how to approach this situation. Thank you!
  8. Hello everyone! Just wondering if anyone knows of any derm private offices in Queens/Long Island/Manhattan NY open to hiring a new graduate! Please let me know, MUCH APPRECIATED! If not, does anyone know how to get into dermatology as a new graduate? I was unable to do a Derm rotation during PA school but I spent time aside some of my rotations shadowing at a dermatology practice. Really trying to get in but most places want 2-3 years prior DERM experience..
  9. Hello! I am a recent PA graduate, just got my certification and state licensure in the last month. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant with my first child, and am looking for my first job out of PA school. My baby will be due in early February, and I'm barely showing now, to the point where it's not noticeable in most clothing. When in the interviewing/ hiring process should I mention my pregnancy? I know that it is not legal for them to ask me, nor am I obligated to disclose this. I have recently done an interview at a large county hospital, and am waiting to hear back on their decision. My plan currently is to disclose my pregnancy after they give me a letter of intention, but before I sign the contract. Some people have told me to wait until I already have signed the contract, but it seems like getting off on the wrong foot to me, as it could be construed as purposefully misleading. My hope is that I can show good faith by disclosing this before both parties sign the contract, but by not telling them during the interview I minimize the risk of me being totally ruled out due to my pregnancy (which I know is not supposed to happen but obviously does). As far as maternity leave, I know that I won't be eligible under FMLA, so I am thinking I may have to use some combination of PTO, short term disability, or just have my husband use his unpaid FMLA time to help while I have to go to work (if I only get a few weeks off). In a month or two, once I start really showing (and if I haven't found a job yet), I think I will realistically have to mention it in an interview, just because it'll be noticeable and kind of an 'elephant in the room.' The only other idea I had was to work locums for 2-3 months before my baby comes, so I could save up some money, and get a permanent job after my baby is a few months old, but I've seen most people have discouraged new grads from locums work. Ultimately, I don't want to make any decisions that could impact my new career long term or jeopardize my license, so I'm now leaning against locums work. Any thoughts from other moms who have been through similar issues would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Curious if anyone had recommendations for useful gastroenterology books, as I will begin working in an inpatient & outpatient setting in 2 weeks. I would like to study the "basics" so the practice doesn't instantly regret hiring me ;) Any recommendations (or even advice) is greatly appreciated! Thanks! (P.S. -- yes, I did see that the same question was posted in 2011. Though, would like to see if people have different ideas 7 years later!)
  11. Hi everyone, I am a new graduate, and I just received an Ortho PA job offer in coastal California. I will start training (same salary) as soon as I finish my boards, while I am waiting for my licenses to process. The job is M-F from 8-5. OR 1-2 days/week, but not when I initially start. Call time was not mentioned in the contract, but it's about once/month (no additional pay) What's offered: - Base Salary: 100k - At-will contract; If I stay less than a year, then I have to repay the licenses, relocation bonus, CME. etc. back to the employer. - Health insurance, vision, and dental - Incentive bonus: available after 3 months (PA's at the company said that I probably wouldn't reach the bonus requirement until 9-12 months) - PTO: 10 days/year (accrue on a pro-rated semi-monthly basis from the date employment commences) - 9 paid holidays - sick days: 5 days/year (accrue after 3 months) - CME: $2,500 and 5 days off (in addition to the 10 days PTO) - All licenses covered: reimbursement for Board expenses, initial licenses and license renewals, including D.E.A. and California license - $4,000 relocation bonus - Three memberships reimbursed: example AMA or CMA - Gas reimbursement: I have to drive to the satellite locations a few days/week. - Malpractice: company covers professional liability insurance with tail coverage What's not offered: - retirement (401k) What do you think of this offer? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
  12. 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!
  13. Hey all Just graduated end of July and am starting my first job in Family med with a large group with multiple offices. The office I'm starting in is perfect with 2 physicians and another PA that has been a mentor to me. However, just found out that apparently I'm being moved to a different office with 2 NPs in less than a month. Unsure how to proceed as I really don't feel like I'll be successful in an office with no physician and without anyone I'm comfortable asking questions to so soon. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
