So I am a new grad.. I was offered a job in a specialty (GI). Pay is 80k. Schedule: 1 week in office. 1 week heavy hospital work -seeing consults/rounding (+night call Mon-Sun but only calls from patients and nurses not from physicans which go to on call Doc). Then next week is hospital work with rounds/consults M-F but no night call. I would rotate though this schedule Do you think the pay is too low for that on call week? Also let me add that I graduated in December-2017- I was trying SO hard to find a job in my city but could not-- eventually gave up and applied outside of my state. I am scared this may be the best offer I can get because of my time off.
Curious if anyone had recommendations for useful gastroenterology books, as I will begin working in an inpatient & outpatient setting in 2 weeks. I would like to study the "basics" so the practice doesn't instantly regret hiring me ;) Any recommendations (or even advice) is greatly appreciated! Thanks! (P.S. -- yes, I did see that the same question was posted in 2011. Though, would like to see if people have different ideas 7 years later!)
I am excited to have an upcoming interview with an outpatient gastroenterology group. If any current or past GI PAs can sound off on their outpatient experiences, what their day to day routine was like (i.e. most common complaints seen, good resources), or any questions you think would be useful to ask, I'd be extremely interested to hear from you. I already have an idea of the package they offer, and it's not bad compared to others I have seen on this thread. Daily patient load when I asked was ~16 per day. Thanks!
Hey All! I'm currently a PA student at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and my absurdly smart tutor (who abandoned me to go be a doctor, ugh) wrote a board review book during his M3 year, and has created a podcast where all the episodes are around 20-30 minutes, funny, interesting, ABSURDLY HELPFUL and come with a PDF study sheet with all of the info on it. I've used it for hematology, urology, nephrology, neurology and pulmonology so far and it's been really really helpful. He creates unique mnemonics and tells funny stories to help you easily remember the important info. The link to his podcast is below along with his words describing it and a brief bio on him. Med students and PA students alike are drawn to the way he teaches important, but sometimes hard to grasp info, and his genuine excitement for medicine. It only costs $3 a month to get multiple podcasts per month with PDFs and weekly blog posts (and you can pay less if you want as well). Also, here is a link to a video of him describing the podcast, so you can see who you're learning from. https://youtu.be/HogqPPmee5g Try it out, tell your friends, and let either me or him know your thoughts! He's super open to suggestions about how to make it better and more beneficial. THANKS! -Taylor Podcast: "Medical Bombs of Knowledge" https://www.patreon.com/bombsofknowledge He wants to expand his audience beyond UTHSC students so he asked me to post the below info about him and his podcast: "Hi! My name is Blake Briggs and I'm an ER resident at Wake Forest Baptist Health in NC. I have been a PA and med school tutor for over 4 years and wrote a board review book that was published in 2016. Have you ever felt that things could be taught better in PA school? From what I've seen, there 2 things missing in medical education these days that we could use more of: 1. EXCITEMENT! 2. High-yield teaching that makes things SIMPLE I want to change that! Medicine is incredible! It should be taught that way, so I'd like to introduce you to Medical Bombs of Knowledge, where I publish high-yield podcasts that are ENTERTAINING, ENJOYABLE, and teach you the classic board style presentations of cases. Basically, you learn the important stuff in a FUN and more direct way. Every podcast can be sped up, comes with a DOWNLOADABLE PDF SCRIPT that has high-yield topics, and I write blogs WEEKLY on various topics I come across. The monthly membership is suggested $3, but you can pay whatever you want based on your finances. Click here and give it a shot, what do you have to lose except a new way to better master the material and be a future PA: https://www.patreon.com/bombsofknowledge Bombs Away, Blake Briggs, MD Brief Bio: Blake Briggs received his Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, in Memphis, TN.
