First one to spot me and introduce yourself gets a to-be-determined prize. Void for people whom I have already met in person.

  13. Hello all! Im into my third year practicing as a PA and decided I want to get on the CME requirement early this time around and am trying to find a cheaper way to get my Category 1 CME. My colleague told me about PRI-MED conference. It seems super cheap and says it gives category 1 cme, but it seems like there must be a catch. Anyone have any experience with these conferences and on whether they are legitimate and worth the time?? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks! -Jess
  14. Can anyone recommend any EM conferences other than SEMPA and Essentials of EM? Can't swing either this year for various reasons but would be interested to hear what other folks have liked (or not liked). Thanks in advance! (I should mention I've already completed the EM Boot Camp series, which I highly recommend for those who haven't!)
  15. Hello everyone, I'm a second year PA student about to start my emergency med rotation. I'm interested in doing research on an EM topic and submitting it for presentation at the SEMPA or AAPA conference, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I have limited research experience apart from being a lab tech for a geneticist, so I'm starting from scratch. But I'm motivated if given the guidance. I'd like to learn about what kinds of research students are able to do over the short (5-6 week) time span of a rotation, but can't find a way to filter those out in general academic search engines, etc. Any advice or guidance is much appreciated!

  18. Got my room reservation at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Got the time off. Wife got the time off. 5-yr-old is amped. It's still 2 months away as I write this, but who's going? Who knows where to get alcohol at Disney World? When should we organize the SEMPA Princess Breakfast? Will there be strong words and intense controversy over which is the best Disney movie? Watch this thread...
  19. Hi all! Last week I interviewed at an Allergy & Immunology solo physician practice, with one other PA, and the physician told me that she is willing to train a new grad, training will be for 3 months but only part time (2-3 days a week) and that i would be compensated. After 3 months, i will transition to full time, which is 5 days a week, and every other Saturday (which i guess puts me at 6 days per week every other week). Today I received an email from the PA saying that they would like to present me an offer this Wednesday, so I know that this will be my only opportunity to negotiate. What should I expect to be paid hourly during this 3 month training? Is it reasonable to ask for the avg hourly rate for new grads, even though i will be training? AAPA says that the avg hourly rate for part-time is $42-50, and i would likely be working 16-24 hours per week, which is not a whole lot, and this will be for 3 months. What should i ask for? Also, when i transition to full-time, do i ask for the national new grad avg of 81-88k? And do I negotiate for more since I will be covering 2 Saturdays out of the month? And do I get this "part time to full time transition after 3 months" in writing? Lastly, what about bennies? I would like Full health & dental and of course malpractice (which she said in the interview she will cover), but how many PTO/sick days? CME allowance and days? License reimbursement, etc? I've never negotiated a professional position before, so I look to you all for help! Thanks so much for reading this far :) ***I'm in Miami for reference. And the PA says that they schedule patients in 30 minute blocks, so after training i would be seeing at most 12-14 patients in a day
  20. Posting to see if anyone's going and trying to promote a fundraise for young scientists. In 2014, the 9th International Conference on Genomics (ICG-9) and the 3rd Shenzhen International Biotechnology Innovation Forum & Expo (SIBIFE-3) will join forces to stage one of the world’s most influential and fruitful annual conferences for the genomics and life science industries. It will bring together a diverse group of attendees and provide a platform to discuss recent advances and establish new collaborations. Shenzhen is one of the most energetic and fast-developing cities in the world. With strong support from open-minded local government and ample resources; the city provides a friendly environment for innovators and entrepreneurs. ICG aims at gathering leaders, researchers and professionals in omics sciences on human health, animal and plant science, agriculture and other related fields, to share thoughts and implications on the latest developments in the world of genomics. Since its inauguration 9 years ago, ICG has proved itself as one of the most dynamic, enthusiastic, and enjoyable gatherings internationally. We have not only been doing science, we have also been cultivating a culture of collaboration. ICG puts everyone together, to do together, to share together and lets communication make a difference. SIBIFE SIBIFE is one of the largest and most influential events in the region with a focus on promoting academic communication, development of new businesses, and industrialization of global biotechnology research and translation. In 2013, the 2nd SIBIFE brought together more than 1,200 policy makers, corporate leaders, industry heavyweights, biotech investors and insightful scholars. This year, SIBIFE will inaugurate the 1st Biotech Leaders Summit, where presenters will share their insights on building a global connection between advanced biotechnology and capital to promote innovation and deliver inspiration for the sustainable development of biotechnology and healthcare industries. https://www.facebook.com/bgiworld/app_326976864118224 To help new talents rise on the horizon BGI started a Facebook Promotion to both help young scientists or science students to join the ICG-9 for free and give them the fund we will raise (at least $2000). For every "Like" we donate $1 to the fund. Please Join. Thank you. I will be more than happy to answer any of our forum members questions, don hesitate to ask. https://www.facebook.com/bgiworld/app_326976864118224
  21. Hey everyone! Does anyone know of a website or resource that has a list of all accredited CME Conferences for PA's? I'm looking for one for 2013 (preferably in a good location!), but I can't find a comprehensive list. The closest I have come is I have found a list of all the state conferences, but not for individual topics. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  22. Hello, I am a UCLA student seeking experience in shadowing a PA in or around westwood, Los Angeles. for any offerings or advice, please contact me via e-mail at cryofcoyote@aol.com Thanks a ton! JT
