  4. Hi All, Our pain practice has expanded and now requires the services of a PA. If you know anyone who would be suitable for a day medical center I would appreciate the lead as so far recruiting websites have yielded below par results. Our biggest requirement is 2 years clinical experience preferably in anesthesia, pain management, internal medicine, neurology, or orthopedics. Our website is http://www.lifestreamhealth.com which will show you a little bit about our practice. Send me an email at ryan@lifestreamhealth.com if you know anyone appropriate. I appreciate the help! Best Regards, Ryan Lyles
  5. Hi, I am recently a new grad and just received an offer in pain management. It'll be 5 days a week, no call, no holidays. The offer was $63,000. To me that seems very low. I'm not sure if they do this expecting you to negotiate higher? I really need and would like this job, but I feel it should start higher. Any suggestions on negotiation? Thank you!
  6. 1. Does anyone have any suggestions on really good pain management books for a new grad going into the PM world? 2. I cannot find anywhere if PAs are allowed to prescribe their first year in Pennsylvania. Does anyone happen to know? Thanks!!
  7. Hello, and thanks for reading this! I'm looking for answers from a very specific group of physician assistants! I work for a 500 bed hospital as their inpatient pain PA. My requirements include handling all inpatient pain management consults, managing post-op epidurals and PCA's, and daily rounds, among other things. I'm currently in the middle of a crossfire between pain management staff and admitting physicians. I don't want to say much more about the issues so as not to skew results. I'm hoping my fellow PA's can provide me with a little information. If you are a physician assistant who handles INPATIENT PAIN MANAGEMENT for a hospital (our outpatient side isn't affected), can you please answer these questions? 1. Yes or No - Do you assume management of the patient's pain issues while they are inpatients? This includes writing orders, daily rounds, etc. 2. If you answered NO to question 1, what is your role in terms of inpatient pain management? 3. If you answered YES to question 1, do you assume management of your inpatients as outpatients upon discharge? 4. If you answered YES to question 1, do you write for the patient's pain medication upon discharge? I thank you in advance for your help with these questions. I hope to hear from my peers as your input is very important to me. Again, thank you VERY much! Sincerely, Scott Petersen, PA-C PS -- please let me know how many beds your hospital has. Thanks!
