  3. Hi, I was curious if anyone knew specific rules or regulations regarding a PA owning their own clinic in New York; or what website has this detailed information? If anyone has gone through this as well, that would be great. I know PA owned cosmetic medi-spa's; but not so much medical clinics offering cosmetics. Thanks

  9. Hi I am looking for where I can find a comprehensive summary of major practicing laws in California and New York? I found the handbooks online, however they seem rather detailed and long and I am trying to look for something more comprehensive so I have a general understanding. If anyone knows any major differences in the laws in these two states that would be great too! Thanks!
  10. Hello, new grad here in NYC just got offered a primary care contract with a private practice seeking expert opinions. 1 doc, office manager, 3 nurses, and front desk. Doc is super nice and willing to teach, got really good vibes. A little background about this practice is that it is about 70% Chinese population, which is probably why they want to hire me (bilingual). It is worth noting that I will be the first PA the doc has ever worked with. This is a rough draft that does not cover everything. But I have given them a counter offer and they have agreed to meet up and negotiate. Anything else that I should be concerned with or any thoughts about the counter offer? Any thoughts about bonus structure for second year? Thanks for any advice or comments. Draft offer : Base Salary - 100,000. Incentive bonus of 20% guaranteed second year. (not sure what that means, probably means 20% of salary increase). PTO - 2 weeks vacation first year. 3 wks second year. 4 wks third year. Hours - 5 days/week with 1 weekend day. 9am-5pm. Health insurance - $1000 per month reimburse coverage (no idea what that means). Malpractice - "professional liability coverage." 2 year restrictive covenant within 2 miles of practice. My counter offer : Starting Salary : $105,000.00 Yearly Bonus : 10% of salary. Professional License : Cover DEA license if required. Malpractice : Per occurrence coverage or claims-based with tail coverage. Include as a named provider. CME : 5 days, up to $2000.00 allowance. Sick Leaves : 5 days. 1 Year contract. Questions to discuss : Retirement Plan - 401K Health Care - Currently with wife insurance plan. Professional license second year - practice coverage. National Holidays. Other office duties. On call duties. Second year - Continuous commitment, salary, and bonus structures.
  11. Hi guys and gals, I have a question! I graduated 2013 with a BS in Business. My CGPA is 3.1. Initially, I was a chemistry major so I have about two years worth of sciences done but my grades were not that great. My existing SGPA is 2.7. I plan on retaking all the courses over that I received lower than a B. So my problem is: For the fall semester, I got into the following programs: Pre med post bacc at Hofstra University Non-matriculated program at NYU (applied for post-bacc in the spring) Non-matriculated program at Hunter (applied for post-bacc in the spring) Which program will be the best choice? The general public will obviously choose NYU based on its prestige but I will have no perks of the pre-health advisory and I’ve been warned about their “weeding out” courses. Hosftra, although not the best school, I have all the perks that come with a structured post bacc program but I don’t know if it will give me the competitive edge that I will need to separate myself. I’ve heard great things about Hunter but again, I will have no guidance and I am concerned with not impressing the adcoms. Lastly, I don’t want to wait around an entire semester to see if I got into any of the programs in the spring. I just want some feedback. I just don’t know what to do...

  13. Good luck to everyone who applied. Just turned in all my things yesterday. Random question: do they do rolling admissions? I couldn't find anything that stated whether they do or not specifically.
  14. Hi guys! Who else has applied? Still waiting to hear back about my app being received!
  15. I am the husband of a PA student. She is busy with her rotations right now so I am trying to gather this information for her. We are looking to move to Ithaca, NY at the end of this summer for my graduate degree. My wife will graduate from her PA program in mid August and will be ready to start working. We are trying to get a better understanding of what the job market looks like for PA’s out there or NY in general. What kinds of opportunities are there? What is the role of most PA’s in and around Ithaca? I appreciate any help, thank you!
  16. Hi everyone! My name is Emma and I'm a pre-PA student looking for a PA to shadow. I'm looking in either the Burlington, VT (Northwestern Vermont) area or the Albany, NY area. I am open to any discipline/specialty, just looking for some background and experience into the everyday life of a Physician's Assistant! Please let me know if you know of anyone willing to mentor or you yourself would like to mentor! Thank you everyone for your help! -Emma
  17. Hello everyone, I am graduating this semester and want to improve my GPA for PA school. I recently applied to a Master's in Biomedical Science Program in order to improve my science GPA. My overall Gpa is 3.2 and my science GPA is 3.045. I earned a D in Genetics and Organic Chemstry. I repeated Organic Chem and got a B so it doesn't help my Gpa too much. Do you all think that the Masters degree is worth it? The only healthcare experience I have is 25 hours shadowing a DO in primary care. I really want to become a PA , but my grades just aren't there. I plan on volunteering at my local hospital this summer. Is it worth applying to PA schools or should I pursue other careers like nursing?
  18. 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..
  19. hello, I go to school in MA and I am looking to set up a couple rotation in nyc. Currently, I do not have any direct contacts, so I am open to any suggestions. If anyone knows of a PA or DR willing to take on a PA student, please let me know! Thank you! :)
  20. Hello, I am a recent grad and currently awaiting taking my boards in about two and a half weeks. I have a position lined up at a NY hospital, but they want me to apply for a limited permit in order to start the paperwork on their end and get me working sooner. I have heard that the limited permit takes a while and it would be pointless to do in my case, given that by the time it is approved I will have already taken and passed my PANCE (which I believe takes about 2 weeks to score) My question is, does anyone know how long it takes for a limited permit to be approved? I'd hate to throw $105 down the drain like that.... but at the same time, if they told me to do it perhaps I should just bite the bullet. Thank you!
  21. Hi all, I have recently decided to pursue a career as a PA instead of going to medical school and becoming a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. For numerous reasons, I have decided it makes much more sense for me to become a PA. Obviously, my ideal is to become a psychiatric PA as my heart lies within mental health. I studied mental health in college and most of my clinical experience has been with adolescent psychiatric inpatients. To say I am in love with the field is an understatement. Not only have I been unable to find a psychiatric PA to shadow in the NY Metropolitan Area, I cannot seem to find anyone to even speak to! Would anyone be willing to share with me their experience? Or know of any practices or individuals with whom I could shadow? Is finding a psychiatric PA in the Tri-State impossible? While I am excited about other specialties and being a PA regardless of psychiatry, it would mean a lot to me to know it is possible to be a psychiatric PA in the NY Metropolitan Area. (Both of the Psychiatry Attendings at the NYC hospital I work in and two psychiatrists I am close with do not know of any psychiatric PAs - crazy!) Maybe the Tri-State area just needs a bit more time to realize the benefits of employing psychiatric PAs! I really appreciate any contacts or advice you may have. Best, S
  22. Hey guys ! Just had my interview a week and half ago , wanted to know if anyone has heard back from them? Good luck everyone !
  23. I will be applying to PA school for the second time this upcoming April. I feel I need to prepare better for interviews and ready to answer the question why do you want to be a PA, not NP, or MD/DO? I have been researching the difference between NP and PA and there doesn't seem to be a HUGE difference so I want to make sure I'm understanding it correctly. From what I have gathered here are the differences: Nurse Practitioners can work independently of a Physician while a PA must work in conjunction with a Physician. PAs education is based more off of the medical model, and focuses more on clinical procedures. PAs are able to move around to different specialties more easily while NPs must be certified in whichever specialties they would like to practice within. Are there any other differences that are important to know?
  24. Greetings, I am currently a Speech Therapist and have been practicing for a short bit and was curious about the pre reqs. I have the A&P component met with a decent grade. I would take Pharma sometime before applying. I have taken a few undergrad science courses, along with a few major related science courses during my graduate studies and my GPA is pretty good, but I was wondering what it really takes to get accepted? Any and all comments are appreciated. I feel I have demonstrated I am capable of handling upper level classes, even though my transcripts are not loaded with science classes, but I'm wondering if that would that be sufficient. Thanks in advance!
  25. I didn't get into my school of choice this cycle. I plan on broadening my search for a future PA school this cycle and would love a critique of my personal statement! One change I have considered is to address my weaknesses as an applicant, or at least what I percieve them to be. My GPA is 3.3 and I am considering discussing that as I "re-vamp" my personal statemet. Any feedback will greatly be appreciated! Thanks in advance! 2012 PS: While I have long maintained a desire to help people in need and learn about medicine, my path to the PA field has admittedly not been a direct one. The experiences that I have accrued along the way have been integral in forming and cultivating my strong desire to become a Physician's Assistant, however. As a Jr. High student, I suffered a knee injury and as a result had to undergo numerous hours of physical therapy to rehabilitate. I became fascinated with the idea of being able to help people recover from their injuries and return to their field of competition. The amount of care and attention that my PT put into her job, and in turn into her patients, has been an inspiration to this day. Not long thereafter I decided to pursue a career as an athletic trainer. My matriculation through the Athletic Training Education Program at Arkansas State University afforded me my first opportunities to begin learning about medicine, interacting with doctors and physician's assistants, working in a clinical setting and being part of a health care team. The program was a challenging one in that it not only involved difficult classes but also required its students to develop effective time management skills to balance their studies and clinical responsibilities, while sharpening the practical skills that they would need to develop in order to pass a national certification exam. Upon completing my degree in athletic training and becoming certified, I obtained a Graduate Assistant position as an athletic trainer at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and began to pursue a Master's Degree in Physical Education with a major in the Social Psychology of Sport. As I neared the completion of both graduate school and my assistantship, it was announced that a new professional minor league baseball team was coming to the area. Baseball was my primary responsibility as a GA and I was very excited when I was presented the opportunity to be involved with their health care team. For the past six years I have worked as the Head Athletic Trainer for the Southern Illinois Miners baseball club. My experiences there have not only helped me become a better athletic trainer, but also steered me along the path of wanting to become a PA. While I feel I have become more and more proficient at my athletic training duties; such as coordinating the health care for the entire roster of players and coaches, assessing the nature and severity of numerous different types of injuries and illnesses, providing initial care and treatment for those injuries and illnesses, overseeing players rehabilitation and return to play, and maintaining open communication with the players, coaches and other members of the medical staff, my performing of those duties has also lead to a burning desire to further my medical knowledge and training and serve people in a more advanced way that I am currently afforded. One experience has been particularly influential in cultivating this desire. I was called to the hotel room of one of our players during the summer of 2010. The player had a chief complaint of stomach pain and body aches. He had no fever, but his abdomen was palpably rigid and he exhibited rebound tenderness over McBurney's point. I was aware that these were red flags for appendicitis and, after conferring with our team physician, arranged for the athlete to be transported to the local emergency room. The athlete was given medications for his stomach pain and was discharged after his blood work was unremarkable. His condition began to deteriorate as I monitored him over the next day and on the bus trip home and he asked for the bus to be pulled over so he could get some water. The athlete's hands were very shaky and his pulse was elevated. I knew that if he were in fact having issues with his appendix, then if it burst he could go into shock and that could lead to a potentially fatal outcome. I tried my best to keep the athlete calm by instructing him to focus on his breathing and asked the bus driver to find the nearest emergency room, which was luckily only a few miles away. Upon exam in the ER it was determined that he was, in fact, suffering from appendicitis and deemed that he needed immediate surgery so the appendix could be removed before it ruptured. I love my job as an athletic trainer and being able to help people in the way that I am currently able has definitely been satisfying. I was already making progress towards applying to PA school prior to this incident, but through those events my desire to advance my career in medicine shifted from an option, to something that I cannot settle for less than. While my path to this point has not been a direct one, I feel that the experiences I have accumulated along that path have made me better prepared for the rigors of PA school as well as being a PA in the future. The path hasn't been direct, but I am ready and excited for the next step.
