  2. The University of Colorado School of Medicine and Childrens Hospital Colorado are pleased to announce that applications for our Inpatient Advanced Practitioner Fellowship are now being accepted. This is a 1 year program, open to PAs and acute care NPs that combines diverse clinical and didactic experiences to help prepare new or recent graduates looking for a career in an inpatient pediatric specialty. More information can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/pediatrics/meded/fellowships/app-fellowship/Pages/default.aspx We enrolled our first cohort October 15th and are now recruiting for next year's cohort. Currently, there are two slots per cohort, although we hope to expand to four soon. While this is a new program, it was developed by critical care and hospital medicine faculty that have been training APPs to work in our environment for many years. Post-graduate training isn't for everyone, but we believe that there are talented, intereste new graduates who may lack the experience or exposure to land a career in a tertiary care academic pediatric medical center and we want to help them get there. Please use the contact address through the web site for inquiries, or post here and I will do my best to answer. Chris
  3. I’ve been having some discussions about doing a CCM residency at my institution after completing my residency. Everyone seems interested in me doing it. A few things would have to be altered such as my current residency would have to be extended 4 months (for a total of 22 months) to coincide with the start of the fellowship, which they also seem interest in doing. In exchange I would also get more elective time. I’d prefer this over doing locums so it would be a simple transition, but isn’t necessary. The CCM residency is a year long and pays about 7-10k more than I make now (which isn’t much lol), so in total I’ll have done just shy of 3 years post grad training. The talks are going that I would eventually split my time between CCM and EM like the docs with 6 shifts per month in the ED and 1 week per month in the unit. It would be more for management of the various ICU patients (rotate through Cvicu, micu, snicu, picu, and other areas) as I’ve already learned the majority of the procedures, though I would learn bronscopy and percutaneous trachs. Pros: I think it would just be cool to be, I think, the first formally dual trained EM-CCM and truly fellowship trained PA. it would be nice to have the variety of working CCM and EM. I have more GI bill to use to supplement my income, which pay about 1900 per month. it would help with my PSLF. The less I’m paid the less I pay them, and finding a non-profit to work for in EM with all the groups is hard. maybe could led to some consultancy work establishing residencies elsewhere? Or maybe speaking/lecturing/podcasts for EMRAP? Con: another year putting off settling down, renting a so so house, thoughts? Should I just go straight to work? Am I overinflating the pros?

  5. Hi all, I'm graduating PA school tomorrow and taking my PANCE in a week (wooooo!). I'm highly motivated to pursue a career in emergency medicine, particularly rural EM, and interviewed at multiple programs this summer. Unfortunately, I did not get into a program that felt like the right fit for my goals, so I've decided to reapply to more of the quality programs with open applications this fall. Most of these residencies don't start until late next spring or summer. Here's the issue: that would leave me with a minimum 7 month gap in employment, and up to 10 or 11 months, before starting a residency. That's terrifying! As far as I can tell, here are my only options, none feeling all that great: 1. Find a non-clinical job to fill the time/money gap. I have a job offer with an EMR implementation & consulting company that is OK with my timeline, but I fear I would lose so much knowledge if I'm not actually practicing what I've learned these last two years. Also, this might reflect poorly on my applications this fall. 2. Locum tenens work, ideally in urgent care or EM, but may have to do family med for a bit. I'm not really comfortable with this, as I've read on here that locums might be a pretty terrible idea for a new grad. The last thing I want to do is be in an unsafe environment, but somehow this feels like the better option. 3. Take an urgent care or EM job, not disclosing my plans to leave (who would hire me otherwise?). This feels dishonest and I'm least comfortable with this idea. I think it'd be terribly rude to leave any clinic/ED in such a short period when they've put in the effort to train a new grad. Am I off base with that? I could also work somewhere for a few years then reapply, but we all know how life goes; I'd rather do the hard work now before family/house payment/etc are deterrents. I'm really stuck on this and hoping that the experienced crowd here could impart some wisdom in my process. I'd really appreciate any advice!
  6. The EMPA Fellowship at ARMC is currently accepting applications for its next class, which is set to begin in Nov of 2018. This Fellowship is housed at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center which is San Bernardino Counties Trauma and Burn Center located in the city of Colton, CA. The program includes clinical and didactic education that is designed to provide PAs who are new-grads or new to emergency medicine an efficient and supportive training experience that will enable top-of-scope practice in any emergency department.

Fellows are also strongly encouraged and paid to participate in weekly EM physician resident lecture. Rotations include: Ortho Surgery (Trauma, SICU, Burn) Pediatrics Ob/Gyn Ultrasound Anesthesia Diabetic Youth Camp EMS The program now offers two options: 1. 14-month Traditional track ($55,000) Over 60 EMPAs have graduated from the Traditional track and report being very well prepared to practice in a wide variety of ED settings. 2. 20-month Doctorate of Medical Science track ($75,000 w/tuition paid) This is a new offering that builds on the Traditional track through a partnership with Lynchburg College in Virginia. The EMPA Fellowship is lengthened to enable time to complete the DMSc coursework, and the tuition is paid by the Fellowship. There are a select number of positions available for this option, and they will be filled competitively. There are currently 12 Fellows enrolled in the DMSc track. All Fellows are eligible for a full benefits package including Health, Vision, Dental, 401k. All lectures are CME certified providing more than 200 hours of CME.

  7. I am about halfway through my clinical year as a PA student and I was wanting to hear from PAs who went on to pursue a fellowship in internal medicine. I really loved my internal medicine rotation and I want to dive in and work through the minutia of internal medicine for a longer period of time before I jump into practicing full-time. Is the Carolinas Healthcare Fellowship for Advanced Practice Clinicians a good option to pursue further education?
  8. Hello All! My Name is Jordan, and I am a current PA Fellow(resident) in the Emergency Department at Albany Medical Center. I decided to create this on-going discussion as I found one of these useful when I was considering applying for residencies/fellowships. From here on out I'll refer to the program as a fellowship because it is annoying to type /residency. In case you didn't know, they are the same thing as far as PA's go, its basically just whatever your institution wants to call it. I'm sure we will spend many hours at the conference some year deciding between the two. I digress Currently I am about a month and a half into the program and it has been a blast. We (the other fellow and I) pretty much jumped right in to the action of the Albany Med ED right off the bat. We had a short orientation and shadowing experience and were walked through a few patient care scenarios our first few days, as we waited for our first rotation to start...Ultrasound. Ultrasound was two weeks and it was amazing the amount of skill that could be acquired during that short time. I accumulated nearly 200 scans during that period. Ultrasound will be one of the most useful tools for me as I plan to go rural when I finish my year here in Albany. The instructor for the course was Dr. Beth Cadigan, an attending in the ED/ Ultrasound guru. She was great to learn from and patient with each individuals learning curve (us fellows and 1st year ED residents), she stated several times that it took her awhile to acquire US skill, which was probably related to her being the worst kid on the street at video games! We spent 2 weeks in the ED ultrasounding willing participants, several hours in the simulation lab receiving training, and individual time with online US lectures. We are currently on our Radiology rotation, mostly spending time in a radiology suite looking at chest films. As for rotations, next we will enter Ophthalmology, and subsequently Pediatrics (ED), and then in no particular order, SICU, EMS, Trauma, Toxicology, electives, interspersed between all of these are ED shifts. I believe total AMC ED shift time will be around 7-8 months. I'll finish today with a comment about the faculty in the AMC ED. They have been AWESOME! The attendings, PAs, and residents have been great to work with and willing to take time to teach. Any questions, just ask. Be back soon!

  10. Any advice is appreciated. Has anyone attended CEP EM PA fellowship while having kids? I have a 2yo and will need to move to the fellowship without my husband and would like to take my daughter with me because my husband's job is not transferrable. I can afford a sitter, but I would like to know what the schedule is typically like (hrs per day, days per week, etc) . I haven't applied yet, but I'm just trying to figure out if it is logistically possible.
  11. Hey all, I've been a licensed PA for about 9 months, working for the past 5 months. I took my first job as a general medical provider/psychiatry PA at a locked psychiatric hospital in a rural area. It is a very, very poor environment to be an APP in many ways, thus I am already seeking an out. I certainly don't feel comfortable with practicing medicine yet and I'm getting zero training/supervision by my current physician. However, I interviewed and was accepted into a primary care fellowship at a very well-respected academic center in my current city which would start in July. I am hopeful that some of you current or past residents/fellows can give me some insight on your training and your practice ability after the fellowship/residency ended. In my area (Midwest) fellowships and residencies for APPs are just now starting to appear so 99% in my area don't have them. The details are as follows: Mostly internal medicine specialty rotations, some urgent care, some FP rotations (+/- rural FP/ER, depending on the location), didactics, research, examinations, presentations, etc. It's 12 months in length. The hospital system has stated that they "plan to place all fellows in positions with the system after completion of training". I realize this is not a guarantee, but I'm also not bound to take a position with the hospital afterward either, so that clause is fine with me. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to practice in medicine, which is one reason I chose to become a PA - so I could switch if need be. I like so many areas of medicine, which is why I think doing a primary care residency would be great option for me. But, I want to see what other residents/graduates think of their experience and how they were received by employers after the fact.
  12. Hello all! I am one of the current PA Fellows at Texas Children's Hospital. I wanted to post on here to make myself available to answer any questions about our program or post-graduate training in general. We do a lot of promotion within the TCH marketing/hr world, so here are some of our postings: http://www.texaschildrensblog.org/2015/06/a-fellowship-of-opportunity/ http://texaschildrenspeople.org/why-the-pediatric-surgery-fellowship-for-physician-assistants-at-texas-childrens-was-the-perfect-choice/ Also, feel free to follow us on twitter @TCHPAfellows Most Sincerely, Kelly

  14. Current PA student here. Does anyone know of new emergency medicine residencies/fellowships for PA's that are starting in the next ~2 years? Preferably in the Southeast? Thanks!
  15. WOW! The University of Missouri PA Fellowship Programs are exploding! We just got the ok to double the number of Hospitalist Fellows. This means we will have a total of 4 PA Fellows and will allow us to stagger the start dates. We have filled one position and have one opening remaining that will begin ASAP. Two more positions to begin in January! http://medicine.missouri.edu/imed/pa-hospitalist-fellowship.html
  16. I will be starting my PA program in August (2015) and finishing up in August (2017). I know I have some time but I was hoping I could get some advice and direction on what I should do in the next couple of years so that I'm a desirable candidate for residency programs when the time comes. I've reviewed a number of the residency webpages and for the most part they list the basic requirements: graduate or be in 2nd year of ARC-PA accredited program, MS degree, >3.4 GPA, eligible to sit or have passed PANCE, personal statement essay, etc.. Beyond the above is there anything I can do to give myself an edge when it comes to applying/competing for these limited spots. Obviously achieving just the basic requirements will be challenging enough and I fully intend to focus on being successful in my initial program first-and-foremost.....Not putting the cart before the horse, just want to make sure once I have the horse I can get the cart.
  17. Has anyone here completed the emergency medicine fellowship for Navy physician assistants at the Naval Hospital in San Diego? I'm very interested in this program and would love to hear from someone who has done it. Thanks! http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=78855
  18. I'm slightly more than half way though my Residency/Fellowship program. I'm beginning to look for jobs and am hoping to work in Pediatric Neurosurgery. I am aware of the AAPA Salary Report and do plan to use this when job hunting. Currently, I'm looking for positions in the pacific NW (incl CA), CO, UT, midwest and eastcoast down to NC. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or opinion on salary negotiation and what your residency is 'worth' when job hunting. I know it's very dependent on location, but I'm hoping to be in the 90s for my next position. Any advice or personal experience would be great!
  19. Private scholarships, grants, and fellowships. Disclaimer: you'll notice a few are specific to Texas or the DFW region. There are plenty for all PA students, regardless of your state, to apply to. If you have any to add, please add them below or send me a private message. Thanks! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/12/private-scholarships-grants-and.html
  20. Announcing the UPMC Critical Care Medicine Advanced Practice Provider Postgraduate Residency program based on the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital medical campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Acute care medicine fields such as critical care medicine are fast-paced, challenging and require motivated and dedicated individuals but also require a knowledgebase and skill set difficult to obtain quickly or effectively in a traditional on-boarding phase. This program was initially born out of a need to train advanced practice providers how to deliver ICU care in the numerous ICUs throughout our facilities and ultimately for hospitals nationwide. We began developing our program in 2011 and are currently training our second class. Residents undergo an intense training for 12 months alongside our physician fellows in the Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program, rotate through approximately 7 specialty ICUs, and attend daily conferences, labs, and simulations pertinent to the care of surgical and medical ICU patients. Elective rotations are offered. Our residents are provided with a stipend for their year of training as well as a full benefit package including educational allowance. We are now opening a new application cycle for a start date at the beginning of July 2014. Please see the following website for further details as well as our online application. http://ccm.pitt.edu/upmc-critical-care-medicine-advanced-practice-provider-residency
  21. Hey all! I start PA school soon, and will be training in a medical school. The school is discussing a future possibility of "piggy-backing" PA fellowships with the current medical students'. Regardless, there is a pathology residency through the medical examiner's office, which is within the hospital where we do much of our docent/clinical training and is attached to the medical school. Has anyone seen or heard of pathology PAs? It would be of some interest to me to try an elective clinical rotation in pathology, then perhaps a residency, but I've not heard much about PAs in that role. Thanks!
  22. Hi Everyone, I have been reading the forum for a while and haven't found a clear cut answer regarding the best way to get into derm. I have just started as a 1st year PA student. I plan to do my elective rotations in Derm if I can find the sites. I have looked into doing a fellowships/residencies after I graduate. I am wondering what is the best thing I can do to help enter this field upon graduating. Is the fellowship worth it? If so are PA's chosen for the fellowships based on their PA school transcripts. What is the likely hood of getting a job in derm without doing a fellowship? I live in AZ. I don't mind doing a fellowship, however I just want to know the best way to get into the dermatology field. Thank you :wink:
