  1. Hey all, I’m a PA in my first year of practice at a family medicine community health center. We are backed by a large hospital system that provides great benefits and a very fair salary, located in the southwest in a relatively low cost of living area. We have an annual review coming up and I was wondering what percentage is fair to ask for a raise or if a raise is even appropriate after 1 year? AAPA salary report is not very helpful in my state, not a ton of PAs are responding so I feel like the numbers are not a great representation of the average. Salary now is just north of $95k
  2. School’s Open Robert M. Blumm, MA, PA, DFAAPA, PA-C Emeritus September is a month of new beginnings. For our Jewish colleagues and patients is the celebration of the new year; and for many of our students in the USA, a new year of development and opportunity in school. I was driving to my office on a Wednesday, the first week in September. When I arrived at my main street, I noticed students with bookbags, filled to the brim and ready for a new challenge. Schools’ opening equates to increased traffic during our commutes, more vigilance when driving and an increas
  3. I hope some of you will help me with this. Thanks already! I have recently received a job offer in rural family medicine clinic that is located 3.5 hours from home. There is a NP and a physician full time at the clinic. This will be my first job since PA school. I went to 1 interview with them and they paid for travel and hotel. I genuinely enjoyed speaking with the staff during my interview and I would be very happy to work there. When I got the phone call for the offer a couple of days ago, they only mentioned salary and he said because I will be full time I will have full
  4. Asking for a friend -- Can anyone please comment on new grad salary for family medicine in WA state? A friend has gotten offers around 85K in rural WA. Seems pretty low. Their argument is that there is no state income tax but Nevada doesn't either and I've seen offers there that start in six figures.
  5. We are looking for a candidate that can add to a growing practice in an established office. The office is structured as a cash model practice and does not take insurance. We see patients for wellness and primary care issues. We treat the patients through bloodwork and a combination of medication/supplements. This is a great opportunity for a provider with a few years of experience that would like to have a patient base of people who care for their health and therefore are compliant in their plan of care. We also utilize a direct primary care model where the patients do not have to worry abou
  6. If you love your work but don't love the system that surrounds it, I'd like to hear from you. I'll be starting in primary care after about 6 years in Urgent Care, and several times I've heard from patients that my non-scheduled, walk-in, takes-as-long-as-it-takes kind of visit is far superior to what they sometimes experience in the day clinic. I recently had a patient hug me, just because I "listened." I know the people working in our primary care clinic are smart and caring people, so it's not that. I've also had a glance at their schedules and sometimes... yuck. Just no. So I'm sure

  9. Hi : D So I am an undergraduate student, quite certain I want to work in primary care, specifically family medicine...but I am debating that old question, P.A. vs. D.O. (If I did go to med school it would be an osteopathic school because i like the osteopathic philosophy). So my question is: - Are there many part time opportunities for P.A.s in family medicine/other primary care? How does working part time as a doctor vs. part time as a P.A. compare? - How is it being a P.A. in NJ or P.A. (the state)? Like how much autonomy/respect do they have in comparison to other places... -Is it jus
  10. I am a 2nd year student at Idaho State University, but originally from St. Paul, and I am trying to find a clinical rotation in the Twin Cities area in Outpatient Medicine (family practice, urgent care, etc.) for February 17-March 21, 2014. Any help in locating a preceptor would be appreciated! Thank you, Maggie
  11. Soo I am 3 months into my first job as a PA. I took a job in a BRAND NEW family medicine practice, started by a Psychiatrist who has 6 other very successful psychiatry offices. Well, the fam practice is still not picking up and I find myself VERY BORED. There are 2-3 other physicians in the office who are only seeing anywhere from 3 - 8 patients a day. I dont even have my own schedule yet, and don't know if I ever will get one until the physicians schedules fill up. In the morning I do admission H&P's, and general fam med consults for a psych. hospital. In the afternoon, I dread going to t
