  1. Hello, I have committed to a PA school starting in January 2019. I was comfortable with my choice until the last few weeks I have been very concerned that I should reapply - even though it is 3 months into the application cycle- because the school I have accepted a position at is currently on probation status. The program did explain this at the interview, however now that I have had a few months to think about it I am growing nervous that I should wait and apply again to get into a fully accredited program. The program has hired consultants to improve on the issues that caused the accreditation problem. I am hoping it will be accredited, but truly it would not affect my class, rather the class after mine. If I can get any feedback whether the specific program/school you attend affects where you get a job or how others look at your application I would truly truly appreciate it. I am not sure if my hesitancy is valid or not. Thanks
  2. My name is Gregory E. Gould D.O. and I have an internal medicine practice in Washington, Michigan. I would like to extend the opportunity to students or recent graduates looking for full-time or part-time employment as a medical assistant in my office. This presents itself as an amazing opportunity for you to get direct patient contact, work alongside a practicing physician assistant, and make some money. Our current need for this role in the office is immediate given that one of our medical assistance just left for pre-nursing college. Please feel free to text me or email me with your interest. My telephone number is 248-506-2258. Also, if you feel there is an individual that may be interested please feel free to forward this email to them. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you, Dr. Gould www.drgregorygould.com
  3. 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?
  4. The situation: Hey folks, I am just a few months out from graduation and I feel like I am about to make a big career decision that will shape the next stage of my life. I want to practice in EM and my intention one year ago was to go to a residency program after graduation. I have been accepted into one program and have interviews at two others already which is very exciting. At the same time I have been in contact with a recruiter and the Army is looking very good at the moment with the training opportunities they can provide (EM residency in Texas, TCCC courses etc.) Finally, after hanging out with residents on clinical rotations for the past year I am feeling envious of where they are and thinking about going back to full on med school. Some Possible options: 1. EM PA residency- I don't know if this needs to be justified on this form. There are obvious trade offs that come with this, but significant rewards. Upon graduation from such a program I would likely seek employment in MT, ID or AK in a small rural trauma center, ski and hunt elk extensively. 2. Army-> PA residency down the road- Understanding the deployment implications and intrinsic sacrifices, the training opportunities here are particularly unique. It is something that I have always been interested in, and my background before PA school had some parallels to the culture of the Army. ( I also see guard/ reserve as a way to blend this in and still keep some options open.) The AD route also opens up GI bill funding to pay for med school too. 3. Lucrative urgent care to save for med school- I have been offered an urgent care job for $130 k/yr for working 15 shifts per month with a doc whom I respect very much. This would build up the bank in a big way for a future med school option, and get me experience as a PA, while still giving me some experience as a PA in EM if I choose to not pursue med school. I could also take some of that extra income and put it towards extra training like POCUS courses, ATLS, or even paramedic certification. The goal: To be a bad mo fo. To have opportunities practicing an extensive scope of EM in many different settings not limited to overseas, rural, remote settings, and high acuity trauma centers. Any thoughts would be appreciated, though I am thankful to this forum for allowing me to think out loud. -E

    Tennessee Job Market?

    So I am a new grad and I'm from Middle Tennessee. Sadly I cannot really relocate at this time, but I'm willing to commute a good distance. Despite that it seems nobody around here is hiring new grads. I've submitted 30-40 CVs so far and only received one call. I've started to just walk into places and introduce myself, handing in my resume even if they aren't hiring. That being said, I still have not gotten any calls or emails. Has anybody else had this problem? Is Middle TN just over saturated? Or is this just because I'm not a Trevecca grad?
  6. Hi Everyone, I just graduated in July and passed my boards in July. I am really confused about the license process, I handed in the forums to the NCCPA but some of my classmates are talking about DEA and NPI number? What are the steps after passing boards for licensure, I sent my pass to NYS but not sure what other steps i need to be taking before starting a job. thanks!
  7. Has anybody heard anything for better or worse about interviews, rejections or acceptances? Any information about their interview timeline, time between submitting and interviews, etc? I submitted CASPA and UB supplemental a few weeks ago, just waiting to hear back now!

  9. I thought I would start a new thread for this years cycle. Has anyone heard anything from this school yet?
  10. Hi All! I am about to graduate from PA school this fall, and have begun looking into the licensing process. I plan to practice in the DC metro area (DC, MD, VA), and was wondering whether any folks living in/around DC have advice about licensing in the DC metro area? In particular, has anyone heard whether there is reciprocity between any of the states in the DC metro area? I'm planning to begin the licensing process for all three states, but to ultimately only submit my licensing application for the specific state in which I get a job. I'd really appreciate any insight you have about licensing/jobs in general in the DC Metro area! Thanks! Joanna
  11. Hey, how about areas that are still pretty hot for getting hired? Here's where my email box says is the best around me. - Tucson, AZ. Not a bad place I guess, but nothing impressive. I mean U of A is there, and that's about it. Tons of jobs. - Remote and/or small (read: crappy) desert towns such as Yuma or Bullhead City seem quite desperate. Some are only a few miles from Vegas if that is your thing. - Prescott (and Payson), AZ - in the high piney woods, seem like quite nice small towns and only an hour and change from both Phx and Flagstaff. I turned down an EM job there as a new grad, which hurt real bad, because I would retire there. Phoenix is about average demand, I guess. There are now three PA programs in the Metro, two of them quite large, so that may change... Where would you recommend someone who is mobile to find work easily?
  12. I am a soon to be graduating PA student who is beginning to look at jobs. I wanted to get some perspectives on starting out in a rural vs. urban location. I am currently in a large city and I've noticed that many (not all, of course) of the PAs seem to be more like glorified secretaries and don't seem like they make even simple decisions without consulting multiple attendings. There is just so much micromanagement. I know PAs in rural areas tend to have more autonomy and often develop more skills as a result. However, being a new grad, I obviously have less knowledge and skill than a seasoned PA and will require more oversight. I am not currently looking for much autonomy with being a new grad but I am still thinking about a few years ahead. I understand that a good employer will give me less responsibility and hopefully good mentoring as I begin my career but the opportunity to develop more skills and responsibility with time is appealing and I feel a rural area may serve me better. Please let me know your thoughts and personal experiences. Thanks!
  13. 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

    PA Opportunities

    An orthopaedic surgeon in Biloxi, MS is looking to hire a PA with surgical experience immediately. Please contact me for any additional information.
  15. I am currently in the hair restoration and medical aesthetic industry. I really thought I'd love doing this type of niche in medicine, but it is hardly medicine and I am really starting to miss what I was taught in school (diagnostic, treatment, etc...) I am looking to switch to either ED, urgent care, or maybe even hospitalist. Something that is well-rounded in medicine, but where I also have the opportunity for shift work. I have only been in this job for about 5 months, and before this I was in heme/onc for about a year. These past 2 jobs were posted as "new grads encouraged to apply." So how do I sell myself in an interview in a new job where I have to basically start all over? I'm assuming they would just look at me as a new grad, unfortunately... but I'm not really a new grad! Does anyone have any suggestions or advice on how they successfully switched to a completely different specialty? Would it help to start doing CMEs in other fields of medicine to get a head start in learning a new specialty?
  16. I'd be interested to hear and discuss what sort of nontraditional or outside-the-box jobs/gigs folks have done or just know about. EM:RAP did a segment on an MMA fight doctor (ring-side physician) that sounded really interesting except fighting isn't quite up my ally. I've got a few years of EM under my belt and would be interested in hearing other ideas along these lines-- ways to use clinical skills outside of work as a PRN gig. Thanks!

  19. I am currently a teacher and as such have spent most of my life either in school or teaching in a school. I've worked a few retail jobs but other than that I am a little lost as how to go about finding a job outside of an educational setting or just walking into a retail store and applying. How do you go about finding a job as say a CNA, or volunteering at a physical therapy office? I look at websites like indeed and it seems to be slim pickings but I always hear of people getting jobs at physical therapy offices, etc.
  20. I will be graduating in June and am in my 4th 4 week rotation of the clinical year. At what point during the clinical year should I begin contacting places that have open positions? With a family, being out of work for ~6 months post graduation would be quite a strain financially, so I really want to try my best to be making contacts as soon as it is reasonable. Thanks in advance for any and all help/suggestions provided!
  21. I'm a current PA student with about 6 months till I take boards. I'm working on my resume and I'm hitting a stumbling block on deciding whether or not to include previous work experience. I was a phlebotomist and a caregiver at a nursing home. Since my experience isn't very applicable to PA jobs the way being a paramedic or nurse would be, is it even worth including? Should i just leave it out completely and focus on my education or just mention work experience briefly?
