  1. Hello, just want to ask PAs who are currently working in/or previously in academia. What are your thoughts? Pros and cons? How does a PA get their foot started in academia. Background: I am currently practicing in Allergy/Immunology with ER experience as well. I graduated in 2019 in a different state than where I am currently practicing, so connection around the area is limited. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated

  4. I have released a smartphone app designed to help read and interpret EKG's. The app can be useful for current students, new grads, and those with experience. The app requires the user to evaluate each component of the ekg, thereby minimizing missing important findings and also correlates abnormal findings to potential underlying disorders. The website is www.ekgddx.com. On iTunes, search "ekg ddx". On Google Play, "ekgddx". Thanks for considering.

  7. Just curious if anyone has kept their certification after becoming a PA or current students still on the fence about doing the same. For those that are currently PA's, how's keeping your certification helped or hurt you? Are you planning to add the DCLS or other doctoral training in the future? This topic is very interesting to me, just entering PA school after being a MLS and I'm interested how those skills translate to direct patient care. Cheers!
  8. This course is designed to be a "scan and surf" adventure with the education ending at 2 pm each day so participants have time to enjoy the location.

  12. For those of us with a bit of downtime or waiting to matriculate, what are some excellent podcasts to help get those brain juices flowing!? Please share podcast recommendations pertaining to any PA school related material, clinical, or specialty knowledge in particular. I'll generally nerd out on The Wilderness and Environmental Medicine Live and Emergency Med Cases podcasts (even though a lot of this material will eventually be outside our scope, it's still fun to learn about) in addition to a few others non-PA related.

  14. Hey everybody, I'm in a bad spot and I honestly don't know what to do. I am a PA student attending a 24-month program in the Northeast. I am at the end of my first semester of my didactic year and I know I'm already going on academic probation (GPA <3.0). It's not for lack of effort, when I started the program last year I had a family member come close to death and took an LOA instead of failing/probation/retaking courses. I don't regret that decision but while on my LOA I developed some severe health problems and 3 week before school started I had a major surgery that led to several c

  17. Hi Future Colleagues! My name is Aaron Shaw. I graduated last year from the University of Toledo Medical Center PA School. I have been practicing Neurosurgery the past year in College Station, Texas. Over the past two years I have been writing a book for: Students going into PA school, Current PA students, MD Students, DO Students and NP Students. On February 15th, 2017 my book was published and it is on Amazon for sale! Honestly I wish I had a book like this before and during PA school as life would have been much easier. I used this book and purchased a few practice tests from the NCCPA be

  20. In order to renew a DEA license, do you have to be employed and use a supervising Dr. or can renew as one's self? Thanks
  21. Hi everyone, A few years ago, I got wind of an online search engine called iclickEM that was geared toward emergency medicine providers and seemed very promising in that the algorithm was supposed to aggregate resources like UpToDate and PubMed with FOAM content and other stuff. But I'm trying to find it now and I'm not sure it ever got beyond a Beta version. Anyone have any info on it? Many thanks, Amanda
  22. I am racking my brain trying to devise a plan to get back to school. It is a weird predicament I am in it seems, but I can't imagine I am the only 40-something person with a Biology degree that wants to go back to school for a medical career. But here is the problem: My degree (BSE in Biology) is 21 years old and therefore I have to retake the prereqs to get into a PA program. For the PA Program at UMKC it's 37 hours of prereqs in which I've had all but 9 hours. UMKC require they be 7 years old or less. I have to be working towards a degree to receive financial aid. Taking prereqs is n
  23. Hi, I have made something like patient case simulator, history taking and physical exam simulator for dyspnea (including diagnoses like pneumonia, pulmonary emboli, COPD exacerbation, pulmonary hypertension).. if you care you can check this out https://dodx.shinyapps.io/DoDx5Dyspnea/ and let me know feedback. It is free. Its available to be opened on any browser, Iphone too (so it works like an app) Its for nursing, PA and medical students and practitioners. Let me know what you think, Best Luke
  24. 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!
