  1. I am a new grad PA practicing for about 4 months. I work in occ med/urgent care. Without getting into specifics. A patient had and intraarticular finger fracture. I treated/ splinted conservatively and referred the patient stat to a hand specialist on the date of injury, who did not get seen until 2 months after her date of injury, due to WC insurance. The patient was unable to have surgery due to the timing of being seen by the surgeon. The patient will have permanent and stationary deficits and need future medical care for possible joint fusion. The patient is currently undergoing PT. Not on

  6. Hi, So I've been doing a lot of research trying to see if it is feasible for me to be a physician's assistant. I am an ultrasound technician/ back office manager and have shadowed with many hours with other PA's, NP's and Dr.'s. I have clinical hours needed.

I have been contacting admissions at different schools to make sure my classes completed would be sufficient. I also have my bachelor's degree in healthcare manag
  7. Hello, I recently made a post yesterday and got some great feedback. You can read more about my background and thoughts there. Feel free to give more insight. I am reading all comments and using it sort of as a guidance in making a serious life decision. You can check it here: However for the professional PA's who are currently working, my main question for you today is: Are you satisfied as being a PA? What are some things that Physicians do that you can't in your specialties? Give me concrete examples! A lot of people say autonomy, wide scope of practice, vertical mobility,

  9. Good Morning, Currently, I am on my last semester of undergrad. I currently have my SEAL challenge contract and have a spot to go to BUD/S. I want to be a Physician Assistant in the future but prefer serving my country as a SOCM. Once I am old and cant go anymore I will apply to go to Physician Assistant School. My goal was set on SEAL and be a medic but I just heard about SARC and they do more medicine. Plus more people who come out of SARC have a high chance of going into Physician Assistant school, from what I've been told. I never heard of a SEAL being a PA. My questio
  10. As someone who has a noncompetitive GPA, I am considering pursuing a Master's in Biomedical Sciences to show programs that my study habits and academic performance has most certainly improved. -Does anyone know if grades received in a master's program help boost the overall GPA? - Would the science courses taken at a grad level count for PA school pre-reqs? -Any tips/advice from those that have taken this route? I appreciate you taking the time to help
  11. Hi everyone. Thought I'd start the discussion for the 2019-2020 application cycle. Good luck!
  12. I'm considering becoming a PA and have always been interested in aesthetic dermatology. I was wondering how content PA's are with specializing in aesthetic dermatology and what kind of work hours there are. Another thing, are the work hours flexible? I'd love to start a family but not sure how much it will affect that. Thank you!

  19. I've already been accepted in to PA school starting in the fall and have been working in international health since 2011. However, my contract is up at the end of February with very little chance of renewal, so I will essentially be job-less from March till August. I don't want to start a new "career," because I will only be there for about 5 months, but I do need to do something to bring in some money. I don't have any ER, CNA, etc. certifications either. Does anyone have any ideas for where to look for short-term work, besides the typical retail route?
  20. Please help me out. It's just a roughdraft. Before I completely edit it I need to shorten it a lot. Please let me know what you think can be cut out. Pointno ut any major grammar mistakes, etc. Thanks again in advance. My parents are bilingual elementary educators in a predominantly Spanish-speaking, poor underprivileged community of East Los Angeles. Their comprehension of the importance of education during early childhood, the most vulnerable stage in life, motivated them to pursue careers in education. As Spanish speakers with significant cultural awareness, they felt a responsibility
