  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, ME, and/or MA Thank you in advance!!
  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 contracts. I have included the contract text and want your opinions. What happens if I give less notice? I have no idea how I would line up a second job while giving 180 days notice. "Term and Termination. (a) Term. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with Subsections 2(b)-(d), this Agreement and Provider's employment shall have an initial term of one (1) year commencing on this ___, 2018, and shall automatically renew for additional consecutive terms of one (1) year. (b) Termination by either party. Either party may terminate this Agreement as follows: (i) By providing at least 180 days prior written notice to the other party. Under this subsection, the Hospital may elect to pay Provider the compensation due him/her during the 180-day notice period in lieu of Provider actually performing work during the notice period, or (ii) If the other party breaches any material term of the Agreement and fails to cure such breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice of the alleged breach, then the non-breaching may terminate the agreement.

  4. Just received a contract for a neurology position and was looking for advice on negotiating. For reference, I am a new grad PA in Chicago suburbs, the position is in outpatient and inpatient neurology working 40 hours a week and weekend call, working for a small private group. Current contract offer: $80,000 per year, no mention of quarterly bonuses 1 weekend of call per month 12 days of vacation 3 days of combined sick time AND CME days total for the year No CME allowance Non-compete clause of 5 mile radius from offices No 401K Malpractice insurance provided by employer No insurance benefits as I am still young enough to be under my parent's insurance for the next year (I am okay with this for the first year) My current thoughts on negotiation: $90,000 per year salary 15 days vacation 8 days of combined sick time and CME days $1,500 CME allowance Removal of non-compete clause if possible Clearer call requirements - I would want no call for first 6 months of employment and no more than 1:4 call in writing I am contemplating saying I would purchase my own malpractice insurance through the AAPA for the first year as they have a new grad rate of $300 for the first year if he still isn't willing to budge on things. Any thoughts from those that have gone through this before? Thank you in advance!!
  5. Hello, new member here. Before I ask anything, here is some background on me. Undergraduate program: Wheaton College (B.A., Neuroscience and psychology, Class of 2016) Overall GPA: 3.4 Science GPA: 3.2 Undergraduate internship: Neurology Department, Massachusetts General Hospital Current job position: Clinical research assistant and study coordinator, Neurology Department, Rhode Island Hospital 2 publications during undergrad. GRE score was average, not a bad score but not extremely stellar. I've been exploring my graduate school options, and am very interested in going the PA route. As you can see from my past and current experiences, I would like to specialize in neurology/neuroscience. I had initially wanted to get my PhD and applied directly out of undergrad and got rejected from all the programs I applied to, but it turned out to maybe be for the better because after I started working full time in the clinical/hospital setting I discovered that while I still like research, I really enjoy working directly with patients and I'm not sure the PhD is the best way to be able to do that, which got me looking into PA programs. I wanted to perhaps get some advice or feedback on how I could improve my application. While my overall GPA is 3.4, I must admit I did not do very well in chemistry or organic chemistry during undergrad (both Cs) despite the rest of my science grades ranging from B+ to A+ (biology, anatomy and physiology, statistics, neurobiology, etc). Because I would like to get more specialization in neuro specifically, I'm looking into neuroscience MS programs and then while I do that getting some additional direct patient care experience in preparation for a PA program. My current job does involve direct patient interaction but it is less frequent than other study-related activities such as consenting and conducting scales (which it is my understanding that things like that do not count as patient care for PA programs). Because the chemistry grades really are my big weak spot on my application, my thought was that graduate school experience combined with additional patient care experience would enhance my PA application. Additionally, any suggestions as to gain more patient care experience that could best serve my needs based on my current experience and goals would be great. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
