  1. Hello, I recently made a post yesterday and got some great feedback. You can read more about my background and thoughts there. Feel free to give more insight. I am reading all comments and using it sort of as a guidance in making a serious life decision. You can check it here: However for the professional PA's who are currently working, my main question for you today is: Are you satisfied as being a PA? What are some things that Physicians do that you can't in your specialties? Give me concrete examples! A lot of people say autonomy, wide scope of practice, vertical mobility, etc. But what exactly are those day-to-day job differences or limitations that you have noticed in your specialty as a PA? Or do you feel like you have full autonomy? I am interested in either Internal Medicine (Hospitalist) or Emergency Medicine. But if it's pretty much 90% of the same job as Physicians, then I am not sure if 7 years of medical school is worth it for me. I know people usually recommend PA to MD mostly if you want to go into either surgery or a specialization of some sort. Can't wait to read your thoughts! Hopefully your comments and answers will give me and others in similar situations a strong resolution.
  2. Dear PA Student, My name is Dr. Leonard. I am a physician assistant and a PA educator. With the ongoing pandemic my concern for the future of the current PA students, especially those on clinical rotations, concerns me. This is why I am emailing students about PA Excel and their HELP line for PANCE review. I used this program 6 years ago and it has only gotten better! It is a PANCE review like no other. I do NOT work for PA Excel, although I may do some anatomy and physiology review for them in the future, but I love and believe in their product! But check them out for yourselves, do your homework but I can guarantee this program is the best and most affordable. And because I am such a big shot, lol jk, no but I know the CEO, he gave me my own code to give students to get them 30% off. I was like, a third? That is crazy. Anyways, I hope you use it. Feel free to give this code: evan30 to anyone and everyone you care too whom you think would benefit from this impressive PANCE review. They have virtual clinical rotations as well that are ARC-PA approved; if your PA program is struggling to get clinical rotations during this pandemic. Here is the direct link: https://helpcampus.com/membership-options/?_s2member_vars=page..level..1..page..78996..Lw%3D%3D&_s2member_sig=1586375631-f3148aa7ff0f97cb30a3a2450088f0f8 But here is the main website page in case you think I am sending you some crazy spam link lol: https://paexcel.com/ Twenty-five universities use PA Excel for their entire program to use. I think this is a good way to a. stay fresh for rotations and b. prepare for the PANCE. Again, the discount code is evan30. Best of Luck and Good Studying, Dr. Leonard, MS, PA-C
  3. Hi, I have two interviews this week, one with a private urgent care clinic and one with a hospitalist general IM program at a teaching hospital. I am looking for some good interview questions I may not have thought of yet. Here's what I have so far. 1. New position or taking over an old position 2. Shift model 3. Call time and holiday/OT pay 4. Average # of patients per day 5. What does the patient population look like 6. How many providers work per shift 7. Support team 8. PTO, CME, benefits, malpractice coverage 9. Lab services 10. EMR system 11. Orientation time Am I missing anything? Let me know your questions and any advice you may have!
  4. Looking for recommendations for good prescribing software . I've seen Epocrates, Uptodate, Dynamed, these offer prescribing guidance and basic interactions A new one is LotsofMeds - this one checks full patient data against drugs, like a full spectrum interaction checker which has not been done before. It also has adverse effects comparisons which is very handy.
  5. Hi Future Colleagues! My name is Aaron Shaw. I graduated last year from the University of Toledo Medical Center PA School. I have been practicing Neurosurgery the past year in College Station, Texas. Over the past two years I have been writing a book for: Students going into PA school, Current PA students, MD Students, DO Students and NP Students. On February 15th, 2017 my book was published and it is on Amazon for sale! Honestly I wish I had a book like this before and during PA school as life would have been much easier. I used this book and purchased a few practice tests from the NCCPA before taking the PANCE and passing it with flying colors the first time! It is my hope that you will check out my new book and hopefully make your study sessions much higher yield! Below is the Amazon website for my book! All the best to all those applying to PA school and for those studying for the PANCE. https://www.amazon.com/Medical-Rotations-Time-Succeed-Training/dp/0692836616/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487800429&sr=8-1&keywords=medical+rotations Thanks, Aaron Shaw, MSBS PA-C
