  1. Hey guys! I'm super excited to start PA school in May 2019! With that being said, I'm curious to know what your favorite books are to prep for the exams/PANCE? Some of the first year PA students I've talked to recommended Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, Blueprints Medicine, and PANCE Prep Pearls. I'm keeping these suggestions on the back burner until PA school starts & if I need some additional information. I would appreciate any other recommendations, thanks!
  2. Selling both Andrew Rodican books, both paperback. "The Ultimate Guide to getting into Physician Assistant School"- 3rd edition. Lightly used/great condition. Only one highlighted section (see photos). "How to Ace the Physician Assistant School Interview"- lightly used. A few highlighted sections, most being pencil. Doesn't interfere with future use of the book. Selling both for $30+shipping to respective area. Books sell for full price for about $30 each on Amazon for new. I would like to sell both at once versus splitting the set. I have them listed on the Facebook marketplace (see link below). You can message me there or here on the forum. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/216156642374526/
  3. 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!)
  4. Hey guys! I'll be starting a pediatric hematology / oncology rotation soon. I would love recommendations on books/resources to help me prepare. TIA
  5. I'm taking my exam next week and have a few books from my clinical year that I'd like to sell for a marginal price to someone who could benefit from them. These are what I have: A Comprehensive Review For the Certification and Recertification Examinations for Physician Assistants Fifth Edition https://www.amazon.com/Comprehensive-Certification-Recertification-Examinations-Assistants/dp/145119109X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498933789&sr=8-1&keywords=a+comprehensive+review+for+the+certification+and+recertification Lange Q&A Physician Assistant Examination, Sixth Edition (No CD rom) https://www.amazon.com/Lange-Physician-Assistant-Examination-Sixth/dp/0071628282/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1498933820&sr=8-2&keywords=lange+q%26a+physician+assistant+examination Step-up to medicine, Third Edition https://www.amazon.com/Step-Up-Medicine-Steven-S-Agabegi/dp/1496306147/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498933024&sr=8-1&keywords=step+up+to+medicine Surgical Recall, Seventh Edition https://www.amazon.com/Surgical-Recall-Lorne-Blackbourne-FACS/dp/1451192916/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498933094&sr=8-1&keywords=surgical+recall Ideally if someone wanted all of them and I only had to make one trip to the post office, I could sell them all for $95 and I'll even pay the shipping. If I part them out, I'd like to get about half of whatever the going rate is on amazon and I'll negotiate the shipping costs with you. Feel free to PM me or reply here.

  7. I live in Ft Worth, TX. I graduated in Nov 2012, I'll be eligible to take PANRE 2017 & 2018. I'm studying from Davis, the green Cert & ReCert book and the HippoEd course recommended by the NCCPA. Any comments? How well did the HippoEd course serve you? I intend taking PANRE in Jan 2017.
  8. I have some books that could provide good use to a student either in their didactic or clinical year. Blueprints Series: Pediatric Medicine OB/GYN Emergency Medicine (2) Nelson Essentials of Pediatrics 5th Ed Obstetrics and Gynecology 5th Ed by Beckman, Ling, et all Essential Guide to Primary Care Procedures Physician Assistant - A Guide to Clinical Practices Color Atlas of Anatomy Step up to Surgery Clinical Psychiatry DSM-IV And a few others. All are in great shape, with the exception of a couple covers. I'd be willing to sell these for an extremely reasonable price. Just message me and let me know. Located in Baltimore, MD. Thanks!
  9. I am selling the following books as a bundle package- The were many of the texts used at Western University of Health Science during my didactic year (2015). $450 approx value per a cumulative total taken from the lower end prices on Amazon. I’m selling all of them for $400. Some have some highlights and wear. My assumption is that a good number of these books will still be used as the professors don’t change text often and the difference between editions is minor. Even so, if a book or two gets dropped from the syllabus its still a great deal. You can contact me via my email at jasonlomheim@yahoo.com so we can arrange to meet up so you can approve the books condition and talk selling price in southern california. I do not ship. The list… Laboratory Tests and Diagnostic Procedures- Chernecky, Berger (Adult Medicine I and II) Certification and Recertification Examinations For Physician Assistants- O’Connell (Adult Med I and II study guide and board prep!) Physician Assistant Board Review Certification and Recertification- Rhee (GREAT Adult Med I and II study guide and board prep!) Anatomy and Physiology The Unity of Form and Function- Saladin (Structure and Function I and II) Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice 2nd Edition- Wolf (Health Disease and Promotion I and II) Behavioral Medicine A Guide for Clinical Practice- Feldman (Health Disease and Promotion I and II) Basic and Clinical Pharmacology 12th Edition- Katzung (Pharmacology I and II) Essential Clinical Procedures 3rd Edition- Dehn and Asprey (Clinical Skills I and II) Understanding Health Policy A Clinical Approach- Bodenheimer and Grumback (Health Policy) DSM-5 Fifth Edition (Psychology) Introduction to Research and Medical Literature for Health Professionals- Blessing, Forister (Research Methods) Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology- Levinson (Microbiology) Primary Care and Geriatrics- Ham (Geriatrics)
  10. I am a recent new graduate and will very soon begin a job in urgent care. Does anyone have any good reference books they would recommend? Two books that I have found online that look promising are: "Minor Emergencies: splinters to fractures" and "Textbook of urgent care medicine" . Any one that knows which one may be better or any other options for a new grad in urgent care, please let me know! Thanks.
  11. Hello, I am a pre-PA student in my junior year of my undergraduate studies. I chose Psychology as a major because I was initially attempting to get into an RN program, finished most of the PA school prerequisites in my first 2 years, and wanted to study something I found interesting and applicable to being a PA when I transferred to a University. As I am taking my time on the way to PA school and chiseling away at my required HCE I won't be applying for at least another 2 years. I have a lot of free time and find the lack of medicine, Anatomy, and physiology specific studies getting a bit boring. Would any PA students recommend any books that they used in PA school that I could begin reading and understanding? Of course I would be looking for books that I would actually understand as a pre-PA student without a mentor. Would " Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, 10th Edition" or any other books like that be advantageous for me to start on in my free time? Any recommendations would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much.
  12. What are the Books and/or EBooks on your nightstand right now, and WHY?
  13. Literally, as it says, everything. From study tips to general information, lists of courses, lists of books to study from, lists of test/question bank resources (free and paid), phone applications and web applications (including other helpful blogs). I've compiled a list of it all. Hopefully this will get you through the PANCE and through every PANRE you'll ever take. Good luck fellow PA students and PA-C's! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/04/everything-you-need-to-know-about.html

  17. I have just been accepted to PA school at the University of Colordo - Denver and I was wondering if anyone actually referred back to their textbooks from undergrad? Basically, I am wondering if they are worth keeping (and moving across the US) or if I should donate/sell them?? I figure my anatomy book is worth keeping but what about various chemistry textbooks? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks
  18. I have my opinion on this situation but wanted to see yours. You see a brand new patient who reports to you a severe headache that came on after a spinal tap a month ago. It was positional at first but now constant and severe. To cut to the chase, you are concerned about a persistent CSF leak. You order a targeted blood patch through anesthesiology. As the patient is leaving they explain that their PCP has started them on morphine and you need to re-write it. To which you explain that you don't treat low pressure headaches with morphine, but do give them a step down narcotic for a taper. The next thing that happens is that they no show their appointment with you. You inquire about their blood patch and hear they no-showed their blood patch twice and had rescheduled it again (it is now a month later). So you ears perk up, you take the 30 minutes that it takes to log in and get the patient's state narcotic data base. To your horrors you find out that not only have they been on high doses of narcotics for over 14 months (which they didn't report) but they got morphine two days after they saw you and signed a narcotic contract. So, you dismiss them, sending them certified letter and etc. Now, the blood patch people call and say that the patient is still on their books for the patch (under your order). What would you do?
  19. My application is already submitted, but I was thinking today about something I wrote and have gotten myself worried! I am currently working as a CNA in surgery services at a nearby hospital. Although my scope of practice as a CNA does not technically include things like wound care and removing staples, I am often permitted to do such tasks (after being trained). I wanted to make the point in my personal statement that I am eager to take on more responsibilities and be able to provide more care for patients, and listed a few of the things that I have been trained to do on my unit. However, I am really worried that I did not make it clear enough that everything is supervised. I don't want admissions to think that I am irresponsible because I did things that are technically outside of my scope of practice! I would really appreciate any opinions... I hope this doesn't ruin my chances for getting into school :-/
