  1. Hi everyone, I am hoping that someone will be able to point me in the direction of some hospitals or private practices that have preceptors who are willing to take PA students in the scottsdale, mesa, Glendale, chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Phoenix area of Arizona. I am currently a first year PA student at Hofstra university in New York and we are getting ready for rotations this year. For my program, we are allowed to do two rotations out of state so I hoping to go to Arizona. However, we are responsible for finding the preceptor and giving the information to Hofstra. I will be staying in Scottsdale but I am willing to drive!! Any information will be helpful as I am not really sure where to begin looking or who to contact. Thank you SO much in advance!!! Hunter

  3. I have contacted multiple hospitals requesting the opportunity to shadow their staff but I am constantly turned away because they are only allowed to host students from institutions and programs that have a formally recognized affiliation agreement with UMMHC hospitals. The college where I am currently taking classes is not affiliated with UMMHC, so I was wondering if anyone who took their pre-reqs as a non matriculated student at a community college may have tips of how to get around this roadblock.
  4. I mentioned this in another post here, so I wanted to ask about it in more detail. I see a lot of doctors texting patient info, and I am also seeing this with billing in which patient info is texted for billing clairification and other things. HIPAA is very specific about this kind of transfer, and it has resulted in fines as in the case of these doctors who were fined $100k: http://www.hipaatext.com/100000-hipaa-fine-designed-to-send-message-to-small-physician-practices/ I have been looking at this, and the only HIPAA compliant text messaging app I could find is Tigertext, which is on a secure network and the text messages are deleted after a period of time. That way is the phone/iPad is lost or stolen, the messages/info deletes providing HIPAA compliance. Does anyone have experience with Tigertext, or others? Tigertext seems to be used in a lot of hospitals around the country, so it seems valid. http://www.tigertext.com I really do think that this texting patient info is going to be a big issue for all healthcare staff, including PA's.
