    Texas Licensing

    Can anyone who has been recently licensed by TMB give any input on the time frame? I was assigned a license analyst beginning of October, havent received any updates and it’s now the end of December. I’ve called TMB many times and they said to contact the analyst for updates but haven’t heard back from her either. 
  5. Hi everyone, I have begun the process of getting licensed in Texas. All of my documentation has been submitted and I received notice that I will be assigned an analyst but that this could take several weeks. I have read some of the older topics on this but I was wondering if anyone that has gone through the new licensure process more recently could tell me how long this whole ordeal might take. On the older threads people have been saying the TPAB only meets 4 times a year but I am seeing a schedule that looks like they meet every month. Is this something that changed in 2017? I had a pretty promising interview last Friday and I am starting to stress that my license won't be complete for several months. What does this mean if they make me an offer? Also, if you applied for a temporary license how long did that take to process? How does the Texas PA Board expect us to start paying off our loans?! Feeling frustrated...
  6. Has anyone received an interview offer for 07/19? I received mine today and I'm super excited!
  7. Hi all, I did not see a link for the 2017-2018 cycle, so I figured I would start one here. Has anyone heard back from Baylor regarding applications? Good luck!

  9. Couldn't find this information anywhere specifically in Texas. I know it depends on the state. Tried checking TAPA and AAPA, I was unsuccessful. Thanks in advance!

  11. Our medical board seems to frequently make decisions outside their mandate mostly oriented towards protecting the financial interests of physicians in Texas. They have repeatedly tried to stop telemedicine and get spanked every time. This is just one instance and we, the taxpayers, foot the bill for defending them in these cases. Recently the Supreme Court ruled the states could be held responsible for the actions of these boards who are virtually unsupervised and seem to answer to no state authority. They recently lost a federal case where, from the board, they tried to regulate practices to stop PA ownership and retroactively strip existing owners of their practice. http://www.teladoc.com/news/2015/05/29/federal-court-rules-in-favor-of-teladoc/
  12. I just moved to Texas/got my PA license after practicing in another state for about 1 year. At an interview, a PA affiliated with the practice told me he does not have a DEA number and that when he needed to write for a controlled substance, he submitted it under his supervising doc's name. ...Is this allowed? My prior state required your supervising doc to co-sign chart within 72 hours of writing a controlled substance. I did see on the TMB site that PAs can write for 30 days of a controlled substance at a time and must document consultation with their supervisor before refilling. Is this correct? Also, what are the requirements for supervising docs as far as signing charts? I looked through the TMB site and am not seeing specifics. My last state required "x"% of all charts to be co-signed. I'm quite certain the PA told me the doc doesn't sign his charts, which is surprising to me. Any other pearls of wisdom about practice/ practice law in Texas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Hello! I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. Thanks!
  14. Does anyone know if LSU NO or LSU Shreve takes out of state students and what percentage?
  15. Very interesting article Appears that the NCCPA filled Governor Jim Justice head with a bunch of alternative facts, but when the real facts came out he realized his error..... http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care Governor Jim Justice made the right decision this week to include House Bill 116, and its companion bill Senate Bill 1014, on his special legislative session agenda. This legislation enhances the ability of physician assistants (PAs) to provide health care to people who need it throughout our state. A previous bill, SB 347, was unanimously passed by the legislature in April only to be vetoed by the governor, who may not have had all the facts when he made his decision. Since then, West Virginia’s 1,200 PAs, through letters, phone calls and comments on social media, successfully urged Justice to revive the bill for the sake of their patients. PAs are state-licensed medical professionals that practice medicine on health care teams with physicians and other providers. They practice and prescribe medication in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and the uniformed services. ADVERTISING Instead of a 72-hour supply of schedule III medications, which include common treatments for a range of conditions, including moderate pain, the new legislation would allow PAs to prescribe a 30-day supply, reducing the burden on families who need more than a three-day supply of a medication and, for example, can’t drive a great distance to see a physician to obtain it. The legislation also allows PAs to sign a more extensive list of medical forms that previously had to be signed by physicians, including handicap hunting certificates and Provider Order for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) forms. The latter is especially important for patients and families facing end-of-life decisions when people are often at their most vulnerable. This noncontroversial legislation has support from physicians like State Sen. Tom Takubo, D.O., who represents District 17, and recognizes that there are people in West Virginia who simply do not have access to health care, especially in rural or medically underserved areas. He and others see PAs as part of the solution to providing quality health care in the state. PAs in West Virginia are grateful and relieved that the governor has reconsidered his initial position and encourage the legislature and the governor to swiftly pass the legislation as introduced as quickly as possible, because patients should not suffer due to further delays. Rafael Rodighiero is a physician assistant in Logan. - See more at: http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care#sthash.YsY46EV5.dpuf
  16. So this is essentially my first rodeo when it comes to negotiating a contract offer. Reading up on it now and came across this statement. Source: http://cheekyscientist.com/12-tips-on-how-to-negotiate-a-job-offer-to-increase-your-starting-salary/ Based on your experience, is this a good way to go about things. I'm trying to negotiate this contract (http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/index.php?/topic/41261-family-med-offer-need-advice/), and i don't know if i should ask for everything at once or separately, like the author of the article suggests. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
  17. I thought this was an interesting read. The article is about Np's increasing their independent practice because of "physician shortages." the not so amusing thing is that PAs weren't even mentioned in the article. Im curious if the laws that the nursing lobby proposed included language to include PAs. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/03/18/in-a-fight-between-nurses-and-doctors-the-nurses-are-slowly-winning/
  18. Hello All; I am currently a "3rd year" PA student (our program offers an extra 9 months of Advance Clinical Practice training) and I anticipate graduating in March 2016. In brief, my experience includes working approximately 40/wk in four different Level 1 and Level 2 emergency departments throughout the greater Chicago metro area, I have acquired over 1500 hours of direct patient care experience working in both the fast track and main emergency room. I looking to relocate to either Houston or San Antonio. Of course for the right offer, I am open to other areas as well. So far I have been scouting potential opportunities on various job sites like indeed.com, doccafe.com and PAjobsite.com, not to mention several conversation with recruiters. I was wondering, if there is anyone else who as a new grad got there start in the ER and if so perhaps you can share some pointers with me? Thanks!
  19. Hello all! Just wanted to start a new thread for fellow 2014-2015 UNTHSC PA applicants to talk on. Best of luck!
  20. Hey guys, I matriculated into this program last May. We've completed the first summer semester so far, and I am currently in the Fall semester here at Tech. I applied to about 7 other schools, got 4 interviews and ended up in Midland, Texas. Not going to lie, but housing is kinda expensive, water sucks and I don't know where to recycle my glass cans.. but Iooking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. Although the school is segregated from the main campus, being in Midland really helped me concentrate. There are no distractions.. not much to do. There are about 2 starbucks here, and whenever you plan to study outside of your apartment, about a third of the class is at that SB right with you. But whenever our class finds a free weekend, we get together at bars, outdoor drive ins, indoor theatres, .. and you really learn to appreciate the little things. Professors are great. They really care and will spend their time to make sure you understand the information. Best thing about Tech is that the class (both the 2nd years and fellow classmates) will look out for you. It's like a little family we have here and although it's not at the greatest location, the program definitely doesn't lack the hospitality and support that I believe we all need to get through the rigorous didactic year. Here's our class video we put together: Enjoy!
  21. The Residency Program in Geriatric Medicine for Physician Assistants at the Michael E DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas is currently accepting applications.

  22. Hi everyone, I am a physician assistant student interested in current legislation issues concerning PA practice in the state of Texas. If anyone has any links to resources regarding this topic I would be very appreciative. I am looking for both current legislation issues concerning PAs as well as legislation that has not passed but that would improve a PAs' scope of practice in the state of Texas. Thank you!
  23. Can any previous applicants or UTSW students elaborate on the UTSW interview process? I'm aware of the rotating/7 min per station style, but can anyone share more details or examples regarding the content and context of the questions? Thanks!
  24. Hey guys! I currently practice in North Carolina (and some of you may remember me complaining a while back about my unhappiness with my current job). Anyway, I am interviewing for a job at CareNow Urgent Care in Dallas Fort Worth (yup, finally got the balls to move and the fiancé's approval, too). Wondering if any of you have any experience with working for Carenow/ urgent care in general/ or live/work around the DFW area. Any advice would be greatly appreciated ---- Especially what kind of questions to ask at the official interview? I have almost 1.5 years in family practice. What can I say that would make me an asset to urgent care? etc. etc. Thanks!
  25. I posted this on the TX forum, but thought Id try here too. Getting ready to interview for an Urgent Care position tomorrow on phone (and hopefully they will call me in for a face-to-face). I currently have about 1.5 years experience in family practice. This position would require me to relocate which I am ok with because I have been looking in my current location for the past 6 months without any luck. So, my question is... what questions can I ask as a PA going from family practice to Urgent care? The practice I work for now is painstakingly slow business-wise. Also, is it appropriate (or how do I ) ask for relocation assistance? Student loan repayment in place of the salary increase? The salary they offer is already a 15k increase, so I don't want to seem like I am asking too much. I always get nervous when it comes to working out the financial part. And if anyone has lived and/or worked in the Dallas- Fort Worth area please share your thoughts!!!
