  1. Hey everyone, just looking for some feedback on a job offer I received. The clinic is located in Dallas, Texas. I’ll be a brand new grad in a few weeks Primary care- Base salary is 95,000 (Total compensation 100,000-115,000 after RVU bonuses). Hours are 8-5 Monday-Friday. 1-2 Saturday’s per month ($300 shift pay for Saturday’s worked). Health benefits kick in after 3 months. 10 days PTO first year (increases to 15 after 1 year). 7 paid holidays. $1500 CME credit annually, but no CME days off. No mention of retirement benefits I appreciate any feedback! This is my fir
  2. So I am a new grad and I'm from Middle Tennessee. Sadly I cannot really relocate at this time, but I'm willing to commute a good distance. Despite that it seems nobody around here is hiring new grads. I've submitted 30-40 CVs so far and only received one call. I've started to just walk into places and introduce myself, handing in my resume even if they aren't hiring. That being said, I still have not gotten any calls or emails. Has anybody else had this problem? Is Middle TN just over saturated? Or is this just because I'm not a Trevecca grad?
  3. Hello pre-pa, pa students, and pa gradates, I honestly don't know how to start this, but I will get straight to the point. Here is a little about my background. I graduated with honors from high school, first semester of college was okay, I was still learning about how to choose classes and professors as well as how to study. I finished my 1st semester with a 3.2. Second semester I started "pledging" mistake, but I quit and finished my second semester with a 3.0. I decided to take summer classes, two at a time, (big mistake) failed both classes with E's. Long story short Fall of 2011
  4. I recently got accepted to a PA school and during the interview, I really felt I belong there. However, it is a relatively new program and I do have some concerns. I want your opinions about new programs and whether you would go to one. Pros about the school: -Innovative curriculum -Already has strong ties to healthcare facilities due to other preexisting healthcare programs -Love the area -Since still new, program has to prove itself and make sure its students become good PAs Cons: -No alumni support -Still working on curriculum and rotation sites -Still figuring out faculty
  5. Does anyone know how to start a new school discussion group? The state of Iowa has a new PA program at St Ambrose University with the first class starting June 2014. Would love to hear of anyone was accepted or have heard pros/cons to the program.
  6. In this article, I discuss all of the details you'll need to know about the two new CME requirements, including links to all resources you could ever need. In addition, I'll review other CME requirements for you, including general Category 1 and Category 2 CME in case you've forgotten or if you're new to the CME cycle process. Hopefully this clears up any confusion. Happy credentialing! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/04/continuing-medical-education-cme-for.html
  7. Hello everyone. I have a question regarding two schools: Adventist University of Health Science (Orlando, FL) and Florida International University (Miami, FL). If I get to choose between the two, which one is better (rotations, environment, etc)? Please advise.
  8. I have contacted multiple hospitals requesting the opportunity to shadow their staff but I am constantly turned away because they are only allowed to host students from institutions and programs that have a formally recognized affiliation agreement with UMMHC hospitals. The college where I am currently taking classes is not affiliated with UMMHC, so I was wondering if anyone who took their pre-reqs as a non matriculated student at a community college may have tips of how to get around this roadblock.
  9. Hey guys, so it may be a bit premature to think about this. But first: I am currently a PA student, almost done with my didactic year (3 more months to go!). I entered the PA program straight from undergrad, currently 22 yo. The only HCE I had prior to beginning the program was working as a lab assistant for a year while finishing up undergraduate studies. I also had some rotation experience to different labs as a student pursuing medical laboratory technologist degree. And roughly 400 hours of volunteering experience. I am still currently working as a lab assistant in a big metropolitan hospi
  10. Hello, I want to make this short and sweet. My wife will be starting a PA program this fall. I know she is more than capable. She is very knowledgeable and she will make an excellent PA. However, I want to try to support her and give her some encouragement. That said, I want to write a short book with advice from current PAs/Students/Dr. My hope is she will be able to refer to this for tips and support whenever she is struggling. I would greatly appreciate it if you all could give me your best advice for new students/PAs. The advice can be about anything. Examples: how to study, manage stress,
  11. Does anyone know how to add a new school to the school discussion group? The state of Iowa has a new PA program at St Ambrose University with the first class starting June 2014. Would love to hear of anyone was accepted or have heard pros/cons to the program.
  12. How does one add a newer school to the sub forums? I just got accepted to the program at Concordia and was hoping to get their name out there a bit.
