  3. I’m a prospective PA students currently attending school interviews. For interviews, I’m trying to come up with a substantive presentation for how I see my career playing out, but I’m a little fuzzy on what is available to PAs in the fields of expedition medicine, travel (international) medicine, and mountain medicine. I’ve read up a bit on various sites including Wilderness Medical Society (read up on their Fellowship of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine), worldextrememedicine.com, adventuremedic.com, and opportunity-posting sites like medicalmissions.org. The problems I’ve been running into
  4. Hey everyone, Happy 4th of July! So, I am currently majoring in Accounting (senior) and I'm seriously considering doing the pre-reqs to try to get into PA school. Here's my background: I'm a part time FF/EMT and am also a part time bookkeeper I've done some research on the topic and know how PAs can get into specialties, and I'd expect that after a number of years in the career that PAs would go into a more management intensive role, but nothing that I am seeing here on these forums shows the career progression that PAs are to expect/can achieve. Can someone help me out wit

  6. Good afternoon all! Prefacing my first post by thanking everyone for their contributions - this forum has provided me with excellent info on the PA profession. Now, a little bit about me: I graduated from University in May of 2015, and have been struggling with the decision of whether to go into clinical medicine or research since my freshman year. I dipped my toes into both realms throughout college, working as a research assistant for 2 years, and as an emergency room patient advocate for 3 years. My current job is split between both fields as well - I am a research coordinator but act

  8. I am a student graduating in December and have begun the job search process. Many positions are available, but I'm finding they're either very rural, temp positions, float positions, or in a subspecialty that would be a poor fit for me after school. I am really interested in family practice or a surgical subspecialty. Today I applied for a job (my first time) that said they would consider new grads, but immediately received an email that I did not have enough experience. This is disheartening and I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps my expectations are too high. Granted, I have just begun the se
  9. Hi everyone, I'm a PhD student and for my thesis I'm researching PA professional roles in healthcare delivery. I would love to hear your insights about the profession, why you chose it, what you love most about your work with a brief online questionnaire. It should only take 10 minutes and would *really* help me out! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. My end goal is to promote the PA profession to the public, since there is such an unfortunate lack of knoweldge on PAs and what they do! Thanks for your help :) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FX67PDN Thanks for your help
  10. certified diabetic educator (CDE) certification - lucrative or not? My manager approached me today to excitedly inform me that she suggested me when a diabetes rep came in and mentioned her company will provide free CDE training for a provider in our office. I do really like endocrinology but don't want to work in Endo due to the lower salaries (kind of burnt out right now on long hours and low compensation as it is in family med). I'm trying to read between the lines and see if this is something that would actually benefit me or only benefit the hospital and my workplace. I have a very busy
  11. I start PA school this fall, and I am extremely excited. Extremely excited! In my program, after 4 semesters of preclinical studies, we will rotate through 7 clerkships, and finish with 2 elective rotations. I expect that during school, my experiences will shape my decisions-but I am unable to resist the urge to plan now. I look at these extra rotations as an opportunity to refine my top-choices for specialty, if I haven't already. Here are the 7: Family Medicine Clerkship Internal Medicine Clerkship General Surgery Clerkship Pediatric Clerkship Geriatric Clerkship
  12. Received my B.A. in Psych back in 2010. I have always been interested in the health field and after being denied entrance to the Athletic Training program my freshman year, I changed major's and pursued something that I could use towards "any" career. My mother has always tried to push me toward a Nursing/PA degree but being as young as I was at the time, I thought my career path was better and lets just say, I wish I had listened to her. Here I am, 5 years later, as an admin, and I want a major career change and I want to pursue something I have always wanted but I need help as to how t

  15. Hi, Does anybody know much about this newer residency at Emory? I am really interested in going into critical care after graduation and think a residency or some kind of structured education could be of great benefit.
  16. I haven't seen a sticky anywhere on this topic, so please feel free to simply re-direct me if there is a thread with this information already. I am really wanting the best financial advice (or advice otherwise) you guys can offer for someone just entering the work force.

  20. Hi all. I just came across this forum and am excited to find such helpful resources. I have a question. I am graduating in August and taking the PANCE in the beginning of September. I have been applying for quite a few jobs here (Michigan) and only have had 2 offers for interviews. I was interviewed by an outpatient internal medicine practice a couple weeks ago, but they said they wanted someone with more experience (if that was the case, I'm not sure why they interviewed a new grad in the first place). And my second interview is coming up Monday at a big hospital. It is for thoracic surge
  21. Nurse practitioner educational programs are starting to migrate from the master’s level to the doctoral level, leading to the “Doctor of Nurse Practitioner” degree. Right now, the DNP is officially geared toward nurse practitioners in “leadership roles,” but—reading between the lines—I believe the AACN credentialing body is likely seeking the DNP for the majority of future practitioners. See this info from the American Association of the Colleges of Nursing: http://www.aacn.nche.edu/DNP/dnpfaq.htm Meanwhile, physician assistant programs remain at the M.S. or even B.S. levels. In t
