  1. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT,
  2. Hi everyone, I have a dilemma. I am a new grad struggling to get a job. I have been offered a neurology, 0.6 FTE, nights position. I interviewed for a full time days position but this was given to someone with experience. This is far from ideal but the hospital told me after 1 year I can qualify to go full time. I may take it as I need to start working and neurology is my top interest. I have a copy of the contract and I don't understand their termination policy. It requires 180 days notice, which is ridiculous, but this is a huge hospital system and they will not budge on any aspect of their

  5. Hello, new member here. Before I ask anything, here is some background on me.

  6. Hi everyone, I'm in need of some advice. I'm a hospital physician assistant who gets paid for my 37.5 hours per week. I've been working at this hospital for 5 years, working four 10 hour shifts as well as providing on call coverage (over the phone, never have to come in to the hospital) for the neurology department at my hospital (which is actually an outpatient practice of 10 neurologists). The PAs cover 4 calls per month, each call is 14 hours of coverage. We cover inpatient as well as outpatient calls which can be anywhere from 15 to 40+ calls per night. We are not compensated for
  7. Hello everyone! I recently heard that PAs are able to do an optional residency after graduating, but I can't seem to find much information on this. How does residency work for a PA? Is it similar to residencies done by med students? Would I need to apply to a PA program that has a residency program after graduation, or would I be able to apply for one somewhere else? I am curious because if I were to choose the path of a PA (I am currently debating between med school and PA school), I would like to be able to work in neurology or pediatrics and was wondering if doing a residency would
  8. Hi everyone! Your suggestions were really helpful last time, so I decided to post here again! I have been thinking about my plans after undergrad lately and I feel unsure about what I want to do. To be honest, I initially did not want to pursue the medical field because I thought it was not right for me. However, after taking some classes and volunteering at the hospital, I have found that I really enjoy it. I absolutely love the field of neuroscience/neurology and thought I should become a PA to work in that field. However, I have been discussing my plans lately with my classmates and the
  9. Hello, I am a new grad and am currently trying to decide between a neurology and urgent care position. I one day see myself in primary care and want to make sure whatever job I choose will benefit my future goal. I need to respond to the neurology position by weeks end. I am currently wondering if it would be wise to enter neurology as a new grad if I don't plan on staying in that field forever? Also any additional advice on neuro would be great as I have not seen too much in regards to neurology as a new grad! Thank you!!
  10. Hey all - I am a current 2nd year PA student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. I am interested in moving to Denver after I graduate. I am not in a position to do full clinical rotations in the Colorado area due to finances, but I am hopeful I can meet a surgeon or surgical PA in the Denver area that is willing to allow shadowing on one Friday or on a weekend each month. My interests thus far are in dermatology, cardiology, neurology and urology (all very different, I know...). My best friend lives in Denver and I plan to drive out to Denver and stay w

  13. I moved to a great new job, the allergies suck in this area. I want to write a script to myself for a hepa air filter, and use my FSA account. Should I just make an appt (busy schedule) with another provider or just do for myself what I know I need. Thoughts????
