  1. Hello everyone! Just wanted to start a forum for the current application cycle! Good luck to everyone! Submitted my CASPA on 5/17/19!
  2. I am trying to find an example of a PA that owned their own practice in Oregon? I already have 3 MDs willing to do the supervising requirements for me that will be in the same office, but they all just share space and legally own their own business. We would prefer I also own my own practice rather than being their employee if it's legally possible and not to much of a headache. I haven't heard back from the Oregon Medical Board.
  3. Hello Everyone, I work as a critical care PA in Oregon and my group is looking to hire two experienced PAs or NPs to join our team of eight intensivists and two PAs/NPs. We cover medical ICU patients and also consult on cardiothoracic, trauma, and neuro critical care patients. The details are still in the preliminary stages but should be a full time swing or nocturnist position with an average of 80 hours per two week pay period. The PA/NP will work alongside a critical care physician. Duties will include procedures such as central line, arterial lines, chest tubes, etc. A competitive base salary plus bonus, as well as full benefits, paid vacation, paid CME would be offered. The start date has not been finalized but should be later in 2017. Please contact me if you would like further information.
  4. So, Oregon will pass House Bill 2880, allowing P.A. to use fluoroscopy after certification with their Medical imaging board. Reportedly they have to go through training (likely radiation safety training) http://gov.oregonlive.com/bill/2015/HB2880/ I'm an RT (rad technologist), and prospective P.A. student. I've read some of the debate vs. R.A. (radiology assistant) I do not want to become an R.A at all, but I support it's scope and it has been proven as a useful position. Loma linda California helped to start the original R.A. (radiology assistant) programs, where as they assist and independently (or indirect superv.) perform fluoro procedures, i.e. barium swallows, enemas, UGI, myelograms, ESI in some cases. This saves the hospital money and keeps the Radiologist in their dark room, as they usually like. But nearby in Portland, for example, I work with a R.A. but they don't have a job, there's only about 4 positions in the whole area. Here's the deal. Should there be a cross over? for P.A. to R.A.? Interventional or diagnostic. And if yes, I would emphatically agree with oregon, education should be required (not an excessive amount) on Rad safety / biology and maybe diagnostic procedures, in order to specialize. (I've spoken with P.A.s about this) I'm not a P.A. but what is usually required for specializing in PA? Is it just on the job stuff - or do other specialties require actual didactic classes?
  5. Hello everyone, Just wanted to share that my hospital is looking for a full-time Critical Care PA. The position is with Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center and our hospital is located in Medford Oregon. We are a team of Intensivists, one PA, and one NP. The schedule hasn't been fully sorted out, but should be either day or swing-shift. At present we are not looking for night-shift or to be on-call. I've been here for nearly 7 years (I'm the PA on the team). We cover the ICU and consult in the Coronary Care Unit and step-down ICU. We want someone who is proficient with placing central and arterial lines. The schedule works out to an average of 40 hrs per week. At present there is no call and no nights. Full benefits and retirement with base salary plus bonus potential. Here's the job posting if you are interested... https://www.healthcaresource.com/asante/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.jobDetails&template=dsp_job_details.cfm&cJobId=100944 You can follow the link to apply. Best wishes, James
  6. Aloha, I wanted to reach out to those starting Pacific's PA Program in June 2015. Congratulations! I'm sure you've come a long way to reach this goal and in just a few months we will all be meeting each other soon. I am very excited and I'm sure you have as many questions as I do in regards to financial aid, housing, etc. A facebook page was created so we can connect before our semester starts. You can search for it under: Class of 2017 - Pacific University School of Physician Assistant Studies I look forward to meeting you all!
  7. Hello! I am looking for PAs to shadow. Please email me at sels@ohsu.edu for opportunities. I have many years of medical experience but have only shadowed one PA in vascular surgery. I am looking to expand on this. Thanks for your help and have a great day!
  8. OHSU is my top choice, but I'm concerned that I won't stack up for an interview if the all the accepted students fit in the "average GPA" posted online. Could some of the people invited for an interview/accepted give me an idea if there is a range here, and let me know if they think I have a shot. I'm applying the 2012-2013 cycle, currently working on a BS with a 3.3 GPA, 3.1 science, with 85 science credits so far. I took the new GRE and it translates to an 1170-1190 from the old one, 4.5 writing portion. I was in the army as a medic for four years with a 15 month deployment where I earned a combat medical badge and a bronze star medal for action. I will be finishing my Bachelors degree in a total of 2 and 3/4 years, which is surely why my GPA suffered, but wanted to get done under the GI Bill. I probably should have slowed down and taken the loans. I have years of volunteering in high school with a Search and Rescue team as well as various other activities including being a founder/president of a club, currently volunteer at a free medical clinic (9 months so far) but only get about 6 hours a month since it's a college town and everyone wants hours. I did a weeklong medical mission in Honduras through Global Medical Brigades. I am pretty sure I will have a good essay as I am typically a much better writer than science student, and am having an excellent writer edit for me. My EMT-B from the army days is expired, so I won't be able to include that certificate on my CASPA application, as far as I know. Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to give me some input.
