  1. Hello, I am a student doing my bachelor's and was wondering if there are any PA in Long Island -preferably in Northwell or Winthrop hospital - that are willing to take a shadow on. I am trying to get my shadowing hours complete before starting CASPA. Thank You!
  2. Hello! I need some help looking for a preceptor in the Long Island, NY area. Any field works! If anyone has any tips on how to find a possible preceptor, that would be great too! Thank you in advance!
  3. http://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/columnists/gordon-keith/20140710-gordon-keith-winspears-are-slow-dancing-in-their-dreams.ece A very nicely written piece by one of our sports talk radio guys. It helps to remember that these conditions we treat are always attached to people with stories, if we ever have the time to inquire. Ironically, the chymopapain that I referenced in another thread was removed from the market in the 80's due to inappropriate usage and the development of this same condition.
  4. Howdy folks Wanted to tap all of your brains and inquire about current practice, warnings, precautions and general issues with concussion and head injury. The ERs in my locale have shown a perpetual trend to give hydrocodone, flexeril, robaxin, fioricet, zofran, phenergan and other interesting drugs to folks RIGHT after being seen for concussion or head injury. The diagnoses in the ED chart include concussion, assault, contusion to face, head, neck strain, etc ad nauseum. Imaging is hit and miss. Still way too many head CTs being done - probably for the lawyers or just to get the patient out of the ED. Poor reasoning in my opinion. I may be severely old and out of date but I have some fair concerns about giving someone narcotics with a fresh head injury showing signs of headache, nausea, light sensitivity, poor balance, easy confusion on computative or memory testing. The providers are MD, DO, PA and NP alike. Concerns are multifocal. Most of the time these folks have no scheduled follow up when they leave the ER. The clinical notes show no discussion of masking symptoms, rebound headaches or altered mental status as side effects of narcotics. When I get them a few days or even a week later (insert deep sigh) then I have to work through their rebound and persistent headaches. So far, nothing bad has happened. So, let's talk. Is this an outdated issue and narcotics are ok or is there a problem here. I am completely interested in input from my colleagues.
  5. So, I came down with some GI bug (I think food-borne) crud in the middle of the night. I still felt awful this morning so instead of going for my Saturday morning run, I laid in bed for two hours watching a broadcast of a a seminar being held in Seattle by the Harvard Business and Medical schools plus Mayo Clinic. It was about innovations in healthcare and if they are good or bad for the future. My summary, it was a freaken pep-rally for NPs . . . by MDs. Spotlighted was the tele-stroke program run by Mayo and Swedish where a NP is on the other end diagnosing acute strokes and recommending TPA - or not. Then they looked at retail clinics and the role of NPs in that setting. They discussed the fears about them (you know them all) and then disproved each fear one by one. The Harvard physician was emphatic that NPs = MDs in the quality of care and they are the future of healthcare cost containment. One of the biggest obstacles to NPs, per the speaker, were the restrictions on their scope of practice. So, I heard NPs mentioned at least 100 times. PAs? Not once. Not even alluded to ("Midlevels"). Absolutely nothing. There is a problem here folks. We are not on the radar of the thought leaders at this juncture..
  6. I'm a 3rd semester PA student taking adult primary care medicine. Would it be helpful for me to start Kaplan pance q bank? Are there any other sources (preferably cheaper) that provide practice questions by topic/system? How about usmle step 2 questions? Our first exam for the class is coming up and as you can probably tell I'm having a bit of anxiety. Any advice welcome.
  7. Hi all, I am looking for PAs who have completed a residency or are currently in one and are currently located in the nyc / LI area. I would like to put together an informal info session for my PA program to give current PA students some insight into what the residency entails and your experiences. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated, and of course we will work around your busy schedules. Thank you, Kat
  8. Do MDs have to take a general test before they can get their speciality credentials? I mean is their one test that all MDs take like our PANCE?
  9. I have been looking for someone to shadow for over 2 years and all i get is the same thing. That due to privacy they can't help me, or that they don't need help or are unable to do so. I have called local hospitals, volunteer offices and even private offices. Is there anyone who has actually got someone in this area or any advice or help for me? I would greatly appreciate it!!
  10. My name is Jami Treutlein and I am currently looking to shadow a Physician Assistant to prepare for admission to PA school. I currently work as a Medical Assistant for a pediatric group in Woodbury, NY. Any practicing PAs willing to let me shadow them a few hours a week please contact me at jamirtreutlein@gmail.com or by replying here. Also, if anyone knows a PA in the Long Island area that I can contact please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
