  1. Hello! I was just offered a job as a new grad in psych at a private practice outpatient clinic in the Houston, Tx area. My hours would be 9-6 or (10-6 with no lunch break) Tuesday - Friday and a possible Saturday shift from 9-1 which I am clarifying now as to if this is set in stone or not since it was unclear. They told me I would be shadowing the first two weeks and then after that I will slowly see my own patients while consulting with the doc after each patient. They currently have one NP who they hired as a new grad and trained. Salary: I told them I was looking for 100k since t
  2. I am looking for some insight from any PA practicing in outpatient psychiatry, especially is TN or VA I heard from a colleague that there has been some issue with reimbursement in the outpatient psychiatry realm that is specific to PA services I wondered if anyone currently practicing in this specialty or anyone with knowledge about the situation could weigh in. Are PAs reimbursed at the normal rate or at a decreased rate? Are there discrepancies between reimbursement for medicare/Medicaid and commercial insurers? Thank you all in advance!
  3. IMHO there is a great deal of potential in this specialty. This article is a few months old but the numbers are solid... https://www.managedcaremag.com/archives/2018/1/shrinking-psychiatrist-shortage According to this article ' Nationally about 1,800 PAs, or roughly 2% of the total number practicing, specialize in psychiatry'. Looking at Psychiatrist shortage ' From 2003 to 2013, the number of practicing psychiatrists declined by 0.2%, to 37,889 nationally by 2013. During the same decade, the number of adult primary care doctors increased by 9.5%, to 211,121 total, and by

  5. I am a 26 yr old career (paid) Firefighter/EMT-B with just about 2 years of HCE hours due to my EMT portion of the job. I have a bachelor of science (non science) from back in to 2007-2011 with an overall gpa of just over a 3.0)... I did however minor in Psychology so I have all of the Psych classes and the Statistic classes taken care of. While in college I took human biology and environmental biology *Both with labs* and did not do so great (freshman year was a mess) received a 'C' in both of those classes. It looks like I would have to take 5 or so pre-req classes in order to apply to mo
  6. Hello, I received a psychiatry PA position offer for $100,000 per year, with a $10,000 2 yr commitment sign on bonus paid out after 90 days of employment. Also includes ability to earn an incentive of $20 for every RVU’s in excess of the target set for the calendar year. RVU Target - 3,000 - $20 / RVU. is that a good offer? i have never worked with RVU's before. Base salary seems low for a psych PA. Benefits are great/standard, etc. any ideas on how to negotiate for higher base salary or loan repayment?
  7. Fellow Psychiatry PAs; I am rapidly approaching my 1 year mark with an outpatient psychiatry practice. I am looking for any input anyone has to offer WRT salary, bonus, contract terms etc. I graduated approximately 1 year ago and I have only had this one job since. I recently changed my schedule from 5 days a week at 8 Hours per to 4 days at 10 hours per. On average I see XX patients per week. Currently my salary is competitive and we do get some benefits. We get 15 vacation days for year 1 then 20 per year, 5 sick days, 6 federal holidays, 5 CME days and $3,000. There is a bonus structur
  8. Wondering if anyone who has taken the PANCE thought the NCCPA practice exams were written like the PANCE questions or if those exams reflected your PANCE experience at all. I'm referencing the two exams you can purchase from the NCCPA. I am a little frustrated because I have been scoring 60's and 70's in my Kaplan QBank, which I am told is pretty good. I feel like I have been learning a lot and the review has been great with the Kaplan questions. I have also been going through the AAPA/PAEA review book and making notes on things I don't remember right away. However, I took the NCCPA practice e
  9. Looking for some HCE feedback. Been working @ VA for 3+ years, all PTSD research - first two years were as EMG startle tech (running emg testing 1on1, 12 patients a day) working on base with AD marines. Now last 8 months is PTSD screening (CAPS) appointments with veterans I screen for eligibilty and schedule myself. Appointments include 2x 1on1 sessions; I assess for validity and we discuss trauma, symptoms and other life stressors in depth, before they are randomized (if I deem eligible) to a treatment program. Usually 5+ hours 1on1 per patient. Also includes lab work, I don't dr
  10. I just finished my first draft. Are the ideas in my personal statement too general? Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks! Feel free to message me feedback or post it on this thread, anything you can offer would be great. Here it is: I work in a psychiatric hospital. When I mention this to those outside the always locked double doors, it often conjures up the widely adopted vision of sterile, concrete hallways and shackled beds. They think of needles, caretakers reminiscent of Nurse Ratched and some kind of indefinite, twisted eternal fate reserved only for the “insane.” We hear ab
  11. Hi All, I just received an email asking me about what i would like to see in regards to compensation for an outpt psych position in the los angeles area. the position currently utilizes 2 MLPs and has 1 physician. I am a new graduate and would be willing to take this position for at least 100k (may even settle for 95), but im not sure the best answer to send him. Any advice?
  12. I would enjoy hearing from practicing psych PAs about any road bumps they have encountered with being paid as a PA vs Psych Advanced Nurse Practioner. I've recently looked for another position and find that 80-90 % of psych jobs want the psych ANP because "it's easier to bill for their services in mental health". Also, in Illinois, last year I was restricted from seeing Medicaid patients. I was told PAs are not eligable to bill in mental health...this was from the investigative arm of Illinois Medicaid, whereas the billing/payment arm had no problem with PA reimbursements. (this info was fro
