  1. So I recently found a job that would work well with my schedule as a CNA covid tester. It entails testing patients and going through screening questions with patients then reporting results to the supervisor. I am a little worried because I don’t really want to go for the job if it isn’t considered PCE. Has anyone have any info on whether or not this is PCE or HCE?
  2. Hi! I am currently in my fourth week of PA school and having some serious doubts as to what I am getting myself into. I am worried for several of the following reasons: that with the impact of covid 19 will take years to recover jobs (even healthcare), the amount of new PAs and NPs being pumped out of schools will cause more competition, and this study I read from the Bureau of Health Workforce...basically stating that the market will be saturated for PA's by 2025... Im worried, it'll be very hard to find work in southern Ca after school and I see some new PAs taking like, 8 mont
  3. Hello, I'm currently searching for EMPA jobs in the Seattle area. Looking to move in late spring/early summer of 2021 for my boyfriend's job. I've completed a postgrad residency in emergency medicine in an inner city hospital in the midwest. Will have 2 years of experience by time of move, was also an EMT-B for 3 years prior to school. I was wondering if anyone had information on good hospitals/groups to look at or knows of any places hiring! Thanks! C. Bloom
  4. Hi everyone! I am a graduating PA and am currently looking for outpatient jobs, particularly in primary care. From what I have heard and seen, many primary care clinics are going through hiring freezes, and the few positions I have seen have required 2-5 years of experience. I have applied to them anyway in case they take a look at my CV and consider me, but they have either not contacted me or told me that I do not have enough experience. I had a good first and second interview for an endocrine PA position. I do like endocrine, however I believe at least 90% of my time will involve
  5. Hello, Pre-PA here. I was wondering if anyone has insight into the current and likely future job market in the DFW area, or into saturated markets for PA's in general. I would intend to live in the DFW area after graduation. I gather that due to the presence of two PA schools and 3 NP schools in the area that we are pretty saturated. I'm trying to understand what this means in terms of current and future benefits and salary. I am a non-traditional applicant working a job with a good salary currently. I'm trying to justify foregoing 30 months of salary at my current job for schoo
  6. 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!
  7. After I graduate and pass the PANCE, I will be staying in my current location (in the NE) for 6-8 months. Then my husband and I plan to move back to the midwest where both of our families are located. My question for all of you is: what sort of job should I be looking for for this short period of time especially as a new grad? I assume I cannot simply negotiate a normal contract and then leave 7 months later. I would prefer to work in the outpatient setting but would also be willing to do ED or internal medicine/hospitalist. Can a new grad do locum tenens?
  8. 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 accred
  9. 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 t
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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!
  14.

  15. I thought I would start a new thread for this years cycle. Has anyone heard anything from this school yet?
  16. 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 lice
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. An orthopaedic surgeon in Biloxi, MS is looking to hire a PA with surgical experience immediately. Please contact me for any additional information.
  21. 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 appl
  22. 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!
  23. Hello all, Is anyone familiar with the St.louis job market? Missouri or Illinois side. I'm a new grad with a military medic background applying anywhere within an hour of the city and was wondering how the opportunities are. I grew up in St.Charles but haven't been back in a decade. There seems to be a handful of large hospital networks in the area but not many job postings. Any advice/tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
  24. I am looking for a Derm PA with a minimum of years of Derm experience and to be able to manage all aspects of patient care with limited supervision. Competetive salary with unlimited potential growth. Practice has multiple locations in surrounding areas of Dayton and Cincinnatti. Shedule and locations may be tailered to meet your needs. Contact Matt Kintz, Practice Manager, directly at mkintz.reeder@gmail.com and at 937-438-5333X263
  25. 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.
