  1. Hello, I did not pass PANCE on my first try. I have 2 months until my next exam and want to know if I should try ROSH or HIPPO for my next attempt or both?
  2. I have created a Cardiology Study Guide that exactly follows the PANCE Blueprint of Cardiology Study Disease processes, and Cardio Drugs ... I think it is a great study tool and I am glad to share it with you. Also, It's fine for you to pass it along and share it with anyone that it might help I have tried to post it with this message- unfortunately, it exceeds the attachment size limitation offered by this forum, so I'm unable to attach the document here directly, .. if you will email me, I will be happy to forward it to you. Feel free to email me at chasholloway1211@yahoo.com it's in a WORD document format, and I have reduced the size of the viewing pages ... all you need to do is adjust and increase the "Percentage" viewing size of the document in order to read the pages ... I hope that you find the information helpful. (btw, some people have emailed me and asked me if I am charging for my notes ... definitely not ... I'm just a regular PA. I wrote up some notes, and thought I would share them.)

    PANCE Tutor

    PANCE Tutor I am an online tutor for the PANCE. I'm a retired M.D., retired since 2002, with 22 years teaching PA's, medical interns and Med. students. As far as I know, I'm the only live online PA Tutor in the country! I have been successfully tutoring matriculating PA students and PANCE/PANRE candidates from California to New York for 8 years. I really enjoy teaching......and I really believe in and I am a strong advocate for PAs. I tutor only PA students, and I am fully committed to the PA profession because I believe in it. I had a great working relationship with PAs in my practice for many years, and found PAs to be so Far Superior to the other 'similar' providers (I think you know whom I mean - lol). Pass rates since 2010 for our 68 students using us are 99% for first time takers and 93% for students having failed 1-4 times. Anyhow, If you need some help I am here and available as time allows. Feel free to call me at 617-816-8467 for advice, or with questions - and visit our website at Precipio Learning. You People Are the Future of Medicine.....

  9. Hi everyone, I'm hoping to gauge where I'm at right now in preparation for the PANCE. I'm scheduled to take the PANCE in 4 days, but am feeling extra anxious, as I've never felt that I'm a strong test taker, and my scores on PACKRATs and kaplan don't seem very strong to me. I've been studying pretty solid for the past two weeks and my most recent scores (on practice questions) are as follows: -PACKRAT: upper 130s -Kaplan: high 50s I'm wondering if anyone else was scoring similar to this (on PACKRATS and kaplan) before taking the PANCE, and if they'd mind sharing (even if just via a direct message) how it went. Also open to any other thoughts / insights on how these scores might correlate to passing the PANCE. Thank you!
  10. Hi there! Recently graduated & took PANCE. Used both Rosh Review and Hippo Edu. throughout clinical year. Selling both! ROSH: Expires March 19, 2018. HIPPO: Expires February 11, 2019. Feel free to send me a message if interested! Best of luck.
  11. Looking to buy PANCE Rosh Review. Only need through the end of next week just looking for good practice questions before my exam.
  12. So I just took the PANCE this past Tuesday and I'm really nervous. I was told that they only release scores on Thursdays and I was just wondering if that is true. So I didn't receive my score yesterday, so I'm assuming I have to wait until next Thursday? Thanks everyone for their input.
  13. I am a 1996 graduate of a PA program. I was a PA-C for 10 years and worked 8 of them. I had kids, got busy, but now want to get back to my first love. I realize I must retake the PANCE. Has anyone here on the forum gone through or is currently in the same situation? There is a plethora of info for first timers just graduating or recertifiers currently in practice. I haven’t practiced in 15 years. I do keep up with reading but haven’t logged CME’s in 10 years. To make matters worse I currently live in Arkansas which has a huge NP presence. Licensure is a series of hoops. You actually have to have your supervising physician go with you to Little Rock’s medical board and they ask your SP if he has seen you do various procedures. If he has not well, you are not able to perform those procedures. NP’s are licensed through nursing board not Medical board so they have a huge scope of practice. Anywho, anybody out there with advice? I am planning on taking an online prep then doing these qbank questions. Lots of help here on what to use to get ready for PANCE I’m just concerned my knowledge may be lacking due to the time out of practice. Appreciate it.
  14. Looking to buy Rosh review before my PANCE in 30 days! Thanks!

  18. Hey Colorado PAs.. just noticing there's not much in the way of posts/threads for this state on this site. I am actually interviewing in CO next week. Are PAs not too active in CO? There's a lot of posts with no replies on here.. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  19. Hello All, Melissa Gutierrez MPAS PA-C I wrote today in my blog how to stand out in clinical rotations below is my thread and my link to my blog hope it helps. HOW TO STAND OUT IN ROTATIONS Popular topic on my thread is how to stand out in rotations, This can be for any medical professional or anyone doing hours of shadowing . I did extremely well in all my rotations and got positive feedback from all my preceptors . # 1 RULE is BE HUMBLE !!! Remember you are a GUEST When you are rotating in these clinics/ hospitals/ operation rooms. You are there to learn as much as yo ucan from the provider and staff. Coming in to a new place can be very scary , and you will be dealing with a lot of staff such as nurses , medical assistants, receptionist, administrators , doctors and mid levels. Do NOT come in with the attitude like you know everything and you are already a professional , come in with a positive attitude. I think what helped me is I always showed genuiene interest in learning how the clinic and staff worked and i was a team player. Yes I was studying to be a PA but If I saw nurse be behind , medical assistant need help etc I would always offer to help. So be a team player and be humble. #2 RULE is be happy ! I always made sure to show up ready to work . This included being a positive energy to work with. I always smiled and made sure to say good morning , good afternoon , hello ,etc. I always made sure to show a bit of my personality, part of being a good provider and colleague is being personable. I love what I do and i want to exude that energy. #3 be open to criticism YOU WILL NOT ALWAYS BE RIGHT , in fact most of the time you aren't right. One thing from being in clinical medicine is that it is very different than textbook medicine, once your out in clinic you will see things are done differently and each doctor and staff has thier own way of handling things. Be open to learn and be open when they correct your technique, treatment plans, patient education etc. #4 BE PREPARED to be PIMPED What do I mean by this , is that your preceptor will ask you questions throughout your rotation. They will put you in the spot in front of patients, in front of other doctors and staff, and any time they can. I myself had my fair share of preceptors who " pimped" me and it was brutal. My first rotation was psychiatry with an Amazing doctor and staff, Dr. Igoa. He was so brilliant to learn from but he was tough. He was the definition of pimping , he would ask you questions left and right, he would give you material to study and read and specifically tell you to be ready to answer his questiosn the next day. I was always so scared but I learned that i may not be right but I can at least try, throughout his rotation i started gaining confidence and trusting what I answered and if I was wrong I wanted to know why. At the end of his rotation he told me, " Melissa I would ask you things that quite frankly i didn't expect you to know the answers too, I want you to work on confidence and trusting your treatment plans and understanding why you chose them." So be prepared to be pimped ! Now there may be some preceptors that will pimp you to make you feel dumb-- sorry to say but it's the truth. Always handle it with grace. I remember havign a rotation like this, and If I would be made fun of for getting it wrong I always responded with, " Well I will make sure to review that and study it to not miss it again, or if they asked me something I didn't know the answer too , " I will look into that and have an answer for you tomorrow." I always made sure to be positive and show my ability to learn and handle thie field. #5 BE NICE with your patients and treat them like you would want your family to be treated If you treat your patients well and show them you care believe me that goes a long way. Be prepared to get resistance-- when some patients hear you are a student many of them don't want to be seen or examined by you, but good preceptors will stand up for you. If you show them you are there to learn and give them good quality care they will gain your trust. In my last rotation I was with the same clinic for 7 months -- so I got to know many of our patients to the point that many of them knew when I was graduating and urge me to return , it reassured me that I was doing something right . Providers will want to hire you when they see how easy you can engage with patients-- this helps their practice grow. # 6 Look the part ! always show up looking professional - no one care if you were up studying until 2 AM, didn't get any sleep and have exams coming up , Always show up with your scrubs/ professional clothes, white coat ironed and cleaned, stethoscope and any other medical equipment needed , note pad & pen. Look the part and be prepared for anything. I always carried my otoscope / opthalmoscope with me, had manual BP cuff in car along with extra scrubs , shoes ,white coat in case of any accident. # 7 go the extra mile Many preceptors will tell you " oh we are supposed to close at 5 but we usually work up till 8 pm, you can leave at 5 pm." I always stayed extra, I always offered to do more , Why ? Because you are onlu a student one , this is your opportunity to grow and learn . Make it known your interested , never ASK to leave early, never ASK if you can miss a day to study, never ASK if you can take a break. Mainly make it known that this is what you're passionate about and work your butt off while you're a student. There's always something you can be doing. If you see the clinic is super behind take initiative, offer to help. All of us have assets that we bring, for example I was a scribe before PA school , I used that as a strength, I was quick at charting and working on notes , Quicker than some preceptors because EMR systems are complicated so i always offerred to help and it went a long way Don't be afraid to stand out , this can land you a job and a forever home as a provider. It sure did for me.
  20. Hi Im Melissa Gutierrez-Perez MPAS-PA-C. I have a blog and thought I would share today's topic on this thread. IF you like it follow my blog - melissa-gutierrez.simplesite.com STANDING OUT Hello all, another recent thread I've seen in my e-mails is people asking what helps their personal statement stand out. Honestly this is the only part of your application that shows your personality and a little about yourself, Everything else is grades, resumes , experience BUT what I believe will help you stand out -- a good personal statement. Often we all write about how passionate we are about helping people and how much we love medicine -- if you are going into this proffesion that is honeslty expected , truth is they want to know the WHY. WHAT in your life made you so passionate about medicine , WHY is this your calling ? I was trying to find my personal statement for PA school but I couldn't find it but I do remember my WHY and WHAt made me so passionate about this field . Thought I would share and hope it gives you some insight on what you can include in your personal statement. I always knew I wanted to do something in medicine when I was in High school , it wasn't until I was in Freshmen in college that I realized what a Physician Assistant was and suddenly I knew I found my niche. There was many things that aspired me to help others- #1 was the upbringing I had with my parents. We came from Monterrey , Nuevo Leon Mexico . My parents decided to come over here in order to work and be able to help take care of my dad's parents who were both starting to have some medical issues. At this young age I didn't understand the concept of being undocumented, I would go to elementary school and I seemed to be just like the other kids - I felt American. It wasn't until I was in high school that I realized I was not like everyone else. Not even like my own sister. She went to Driver's ED and got her license , would travel, and got to visit colleges. When I came to high school I couldn't get a license, work , or even think of going anywhere else for college. It hit me that my opportunities would be a little sparse, but my parents are the definition of Resilience. I knew that I wanted to go to college and study medicine , regardless of my immigration status. This resilience was the reason I had the drive and fire to enter this career. Reason # 2 was My Padrino ( Godfather) -- I've shared this on my blog before but I had a very unique and special relationship with my godfather. It's almost unexplainable unless you were around us. You would think I was his daughter. He himself was so passionate about medicine, he studied medicine in Mexico didn't finish his full career but I remember going to his house in Monterrey and seeing his medical bag -- with stethoscope, bandaids, tounge depressors, reflex hammers. I wanted to be like him. And he would tell me that I had the ability to help people . My padrino got very sick when I was in high school with liver cirrhosis -- I saw him deteriorate in front of my eyes , I saw someone that I loved slowly be taken away from me. He urgently needed a liver transplant which he received In 2011. I thought to myself YES ! He's going to be okay--- but he wasn't . He suffered from Cardiac arrest in October 2011. 2011 was a hard year for my family, we lost my grandma July 2011, My dad's brother August 2011 , and my godfather in october 2011. I experienced so much illness and loss -- and it hit me that this is exactly the career path I wanted. I wanted to be help my patients in their best and worse moments of their life. I wanted to help their families and their loved ones. My Padrino was my WHY . Still is till this day. I don't think I ever got to tell him how much he actually influenced me but I know he is looking down on me. Reason # 3 - I Am passionate about my community and helping improve it. I live in the Rio Grande Valley , A community that is largey undocumented and undeserved . There is a huge lack of patient education -- which Is a key indicator of why i think patients don't get better- they don't even understant their illness. I believe that if you take the time of day to explain to patients what's going on why their lifestyle modifications are so crucial to their health there's a huge improvement in patient compliance. Often in medicine , we are so RUSHED, have to get to next patient ,next surgery, next meeting but the patient in front of you deserve your full time and dedication. I'm so blessed to have been trained by Dr. Griego and his staff, their clinics are the definition of busy , BUT they take the time to educate their patients and explain everything to them. I made sure to explain in my personal statement that not only did i want to help others but in specifically the community in which I was receiving my training from. Reason # 4 - I have the drive of a lion. My family and I didn't have it the easiest, especially financially. My mom was undocumented as well, only my dad and sister were documented. My dad would work from Monterrey and my mom would take care of my sister and I . Eventually things in Mexico got pretty bad and his business over there started going down, this was a huge obstacle that we weren't expecting, We experienced a lot of difficulties in paying just simple things like water, electricity. I remember having to heat up water with boiler outside and my mom would have to rush it to restroom so i could attempt to shower. OR having to go to my boyfriends ( now husbands) house to shower and do homework afterschool . NEVER once did i feel defeated or emberassed of our difficulties , my parents handled this with class. During these times it just so happened that we also experiened our family losses that i mentioned above. At this point I did see my father break, he lost his mother and two brothers in a span of 4 months. I remember feeling defeated espeically with the loss of my godfather. BUT i couldn't break because He was breaking . The man who was holding everything down on his own was officially broken-- not only did he suffer loss and heartbreak but we were having a hard time keeping our home and paying our bills. I could tell it was stress that was finally crumbling him-- my mother never once brought him down, she was still grilling me to excel in school and sports. She was still focused on getting me to pass my SAT to get into college. That summer we officially moved out of OUR home , it was our home for almost 10-12 years. It was sad , we had so many first in this home and I knew my parents had a hard time because it was all their years of hardwork all GONE. We moved to a simpler and smaller home , one that we could afford. I had everything I needed a roof, food, car, water, a bed. At this point our next goal was to become legal US residents, this was our best opportunity to a better life. That's when I knew that more than anything I needed to bust my butt in order to give back to my parents for everything they sacrificed and given me. I set a goal for myself - I was going to get a 4.0 every semester - A goal that i almost met. The only semester I didn't reach this goal was my first, missed it by one class. I know that for many GPA wasn't the most important , but to me it was. I wasn't going to have the experience other had because I couldn't work to get medical experience or apply to programs or research things because i was undocumented , SO my graded needed to be perfect. We struggled a lot to figure out how to fix our legal status -- this was a fear of mine . All this hard work may mean nothing , what If i graduate but im undocumented ? I won't be able to apply to PA school , It would mean nothing. But my parents promised me that we would figure this out, and we did , 6 months before applying to PA school I became a US resident-- and from that moment on I knew nothing was going to stop me. Everything in my life shaped me to be who I am today. Which is why I say I have the drive of a lion-- because no matter how many times they say no I was going to fulfill this dream. I wanted them to get to know me through my personal statement, when I first applied I was waitlisted-- I was so sad . But I didn't give up I would go to campus weekly and talk to different professors and hope that if a position would open I would get in. I talked to One professor In June of 2015, I was in her office for an hour we went back and forth sharing our experiences. She went on to tell me I was 21 , young and didn't have that much experience they though I could use some more hands on and to just keep applying -- I remember telling her almost in tears , " I know that i may not have the resumes other people do but I can assure you no one has the passion and drive I do. I've been thrown curve balls throughout my life and I did it, graduated at 20 years old with honors with a Bachelor's in Biology and a minor in psychology. I can handle this program ." I almost was emberassed that I got so emotional but she went on to tell me .... look out in your e-mail you may be getting something. The next day I received an acceptance letter . Moral of the story is make sure they get to know you, make sure they read that statement and they remember you . STAND OUT !
  21. Hello all, I recently passed the PANCE and now I'm a PA-C will be sharing my journey from PA- school , study tips , preparing for boards, cases in the real world, etc here's my link : http://melissa-gutierrez.simplesite.com/
  22. I am selling my hippo account! The videos were very helpful in preparing me for my pance. There are numerous areas that the lecturers cleared up for me and taught me new ways to remember things. Their diagrams, print out slides, mnemonics, and pictures are extremely helpful as well. I felt that this really prepared me the best out of the study tools I used. My PANCE exam also had numerous repeat of questions and very similar to ones that were on the Hippo question bank. This account does not expire until April 2018. Please do not comment on this post as I may not see it - message me directly if you are interested.
  23. ROSH REVIEW: Expires on March 19, 2018. ($50)-- SOLD HIPPO: Expires February 11, 2019. ($250)-- SOLD Please send me a message if you are interested! All the Best.
