  1. Hey everyone! So I'm 8 weeks away from graduating! Hooray! I wanted to ask you lovely folks what tips you have on job hunting whether it be when to search, what benefits to aim for, important questions you wished you asked, etc. Anything helps, thanks!
  2. Hey guys my name is Geena and I'm a PA at a primary care in Philadelphia. We are currently hiring scribes and medical assistants (no experience required- we will train). This is a great opportunity for pre-PA's who need experience hours! Message me for details
  3. Hello! I was just offered a job as a new grad in psych at a private practice outpatient clinic in the Houston, Tx area. My hours would be 9-6 or (10-6 with no lunch break) Tuesday - Friday and a possible Saturday shift from 9-1 which I am clarifying now as to if this is set in stone or not since it was unclear. They told me I would be shadowing the first two weeks and then after that I will slowly see my own patients while consulting with the doc after each patient. They currently have one NP who they hired as a new grad and trained. Salary: I told them I was looking for 100k since that is the average for a new grad in Texas and they offered me this breakdown: 92k for years 1-2, 102k for years 3-4, and 113k for years 5-6. Then, a bonus set up like this: starting at 6 months, a quarterly bonus at 65% patient occupancy is a 1k bonus quarterly, at 75% patient occupancy a 1750 bonus quarterly and at 90% occupancy and greater a 3k bonus quarterly. The bonus seems okay but I have no idea how to gauge this since idk if I will even be hitting these numbers as a new grad. They told me the NP currently sees follow ups in 15 min slots or 4 an hour with a break after to chart and that new pt visits are 1 hour. They told me my follow ups would be set for 30 minutes instead of 15 since I am new. CME: 1500 PTO: 7 days first year (this seems very low to me and was also not broken down into CME or sick days so now I have no idea if I even get CME days so that will be in my email back with questions) Malpractice coverage and 401k with 5% match effective after first year. It was also unclear if the 401k is not effective at ALL until the first year or if just the matching so I will be asking this as well. Need to ask if this includes tail coverage? Overall, I am happy to have a job offer but wondering if this is a good one. I would like to counter with a base salary of 96-97 possibly since a 1k bonus for three quarters in my first year would put me at the average new grad salary in Texas of 100k. Does this seem unreasonable? I also really don't like how the salary is already structured for the next 6 years and how I do not get a yearly raise to match inflation even. Is this common? What do you all think I should include in my counter? Overall, is this a good offer and would you take it as a new grad? Is it a bad idea for me to counter? Please help!! Thank you! Edit to add: they do not offer health insurance if this makes a difference. Thank you!
  4. So I am applying for this cycle and I previously entered my job in experiences as current. after submitting the application I had to quit this job because it was a terrible work environment. However, it is in CASPA as current so idk what to do. I also got a new job but it doesn't start for another week and I was going to submit my apps this weekend so i am not sure how to go about this. Also is it better to apply sooner with less PCE or later with more PCE???
  5. I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week). How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week? My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
  6. Hello all, I will be graduating from a PA program in western Ohio in about a month. I'm relocating to Pittsburgh after taking boards, and I was hoping for some advice regarding job searching and best places to work. My research has shown that the local job market is pretty saturated and salaries are low, especially through UPMC. I was wondering if anyone familiar with the area has recommendations of outlying towns and hospitals that could provide better job opportunities.

  10. I am a soon to be new grad currently in the NYC area looking at jobs in the NYC area as well as back in my home state of Pennsylvania. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some insight as to how they like working for Geisinger (salary, benefits, work load, etc.) I know the salary in PA isn't so great, but the pay here in NYC isn't much better, especially when you look at the cost of living. If I get a job through Geisinger I could live at home and put a large chunk of my salary towards paying off my loans. I am mainly interested in Emergency Medicine (if they even hire new grads?) and Hospitalist positions. Thanks!
  11. Is there a correlation between the prestige of a PA school's program and getting a job, or do your boards/GPA in PA school/whatever matter more?

  14. I'm currently a 2nd year PA student and I'll graduate May 2018. i hear some of my classmates talking about applying for jobs already, but it seems too early. I've done some background research on different areas, openings, that kind of thing, but it seems early to actually apply for jobs. When should I start applying for jobs? Any advice is appreciated.

  18. Very interesting article Appears that the NCCPA filled Governor Jim Justice head with a bunch of alternative facts, but when the real facts came out he realized his error..... http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care Governor Jim Justice made the right decision this week to include House Bill 116, and its companion bill Senate Bill 1014, on his special legislative session agenda. This legislation enhances the ability of physician assistants (PAs) to provide health care to people who need it throughout our state. A previous bill, SB 347, was unanimously passed by the legislature in April only to be vetoed by the governor, who may not have had all the facts when he made his decision. Since then, West Virginia’s 1,200 PAs, through letters, phone calls and comments on social media, successfully urged Justice to revive the bill for the sake of their patients. PAs are state-licensed medical professionals that practice medicine on health care teams with physicians and other providers. They practice and prescribe medication in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and the uniformed services. ADVERTISING Instead of a 72-hour supply of schedule III medications, which include common treatments for a range of conditions, including moderate pain, the new legislation would allow PAs to prescribe a 30-day supply, reducing the burden on families who need more than a three-day supply of a medication and, for example, can’t drive a great distance to see a physician to obtain it. The legislation also allows PAs to sign a more extensive list of medical forms that previously had to be signed by physicians, including handicap hunting certificates and Provider Order for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) forms. The latter is especially important for patients and families facing end-of-life decisions when people are often at their most vulnerable. This noncontroversial legislation has support from physicians like State Sen. Tom Takubo, D.O., who represents District 17, and recognizes that there are people in West Virginia who simply do not have access to health care, especially in rural or medically underserved areas. He and others see PAs as part of the solution to providing quality health care in the state. PAs in West Virginia are grateful and relieved that the governor has reconsidered his initial position and encourage the legislature and the governor to swiftly pass the legislation as introduced as quickly as possible, because patients should not suffer due to further delays. Rafael Rodighiero is a physician assistant in Logan. - See more at: http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care#sthash.YsY46EV5.dpuf
  19. Hi everyone, I will be a new grad soon and looking for employment. My number 1 city I plan to look in for employment has significantly more NP job postings than PA. Has anyone had luck getting an interview from an NP posting? Or better yet, an offer? Were you basically convincing them why PA is better? Any advice is appreciated!
  20. I will be moving to Chicago after graduation in June - trying to get a feel for the place. I see some of the past posts are a bit outdated - so wanted to get the new skinny on things.

Any licensing advice to make the process smooth is greatly welcomed Many Thanks!
