  1. I am registering for the CAQ exam next year and would love feedback from those of you who have been through the process. 1. What study materials did you guys use? I'm looking at Med Study (but I've heard the books are very dense) and the Pediatric Board Review books by Asish Goyal. I'm wondering which is best...there is also AAP Prep? 2. How long did you guys study for? Thanks. I appreciate any feedback!
  2. I am looking at relocating. What do you think is a fair hourly rate (no benefits) for an experienced pediatric physician assistant in California?
  3. I recently graduated from the University of South Florida recieving a Bachelor's degree in Science, major in Health Sciences, minor in Public Health. I am very interested in physician assistant as a future career path, but I would like to gain further knowledge in this occupation. I have always wanted to work with children, therfore shadowing in the field of pediatrics would be ideal. Although, I do not have much experience so shadowing in any field will help! I have a flexible schedule and reside in Tampa FL. Feel free to contact me with any information regarding the matter via email arom
  4. Can anyone elaborate on the role of a Peds Hospitalist PA? What are their responsibilities? How is they pay and schedule? How many MDs do they typically work with? What is the typical pt population (diagnosis-wise)? Do they typically deal strictly with Gen Peds kids or pts from all specialties? I really love Peds Cardiology (there's something about those tiny HLHS kids that gets to me) but I don't really want to narrow my skills down so specifically in case I change my mind in 5 years. Plus I want to eventually work as a medical missionary so I want a broad base of knowledge, skills, and pract
  5. Hey, everybody! Does anybody have good book suggestions to help with didactic pedscourse?
  6. Description Opportunity available for full-time Physician Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner (NP) to join a Pediatric Practice located in La Porte, Texas along with two Pediatricians. This individual will be responsible for direct collaboration with his/her supervising physician or designated back-up physician. This individual should possess the specialized skills and knowledge related to the pediatric care center in which he/she practices and performs physical exams, collects and documents data, conducts approved diagnosis and therapeutic procedures, and provides excellent quality pati
  7. Does anyone work in peds hem/onc? My dream job would be to work in that inpatient specialty. I am coming upon the end as my first year as a PA-C in family medicine, and I didn't practice as much peds as I would have hoped. So I am looking into getting more solid peds experience. While I am getting that, is there any way I can get more experience in hem/onc? Classes or certification I can take? All the jobs seem to require at least 2-3 years of experience, but I'd like to learn as much as possible about it. Wondering how to get my foot in the door. Thanks so much!
  8. I made some revisions, as recommended by previous posts. Should I try to combine two of the last three paragraphs? Is my conclusion is strong enough? All critiques are appreciated, especially on sentence structure and grammar. I called the patient’s name and noticed he was seated in a wheelchair. The patient was at his appointment alone. I could see he was afflicted with an injury barring him from getting to the patient room on his own. I always assist patients back to the examination room because I believe it is an important duty as a medical assistant and a common courtesy. I walked into
  9. 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 s
  10. Hey all- I have been given a tentative offer in a pediatric cardiology practice in NV and would like to know what salary I should generally be looking for as a new grad. I can get general salary info for cardiology (adult/general), but not as specialized as peds. I would be the first PA in the practice and so coming to the table I will need some valuable salary information. Thoughts? Thanks!
  11. I really want to work with children and general family care and I was wondering if there was such thing as a pediatric physician assistant. I can't find much information on it, and the pediatrician that I grew up with didn't have an assistant that I was aware of.
