  1. This is my first time on the forum, so hopefully I'm using this correctly! I am looking for shadowing opportunities in the Raleigh/Durham/CH area of NC. Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone! My name is Kou-Lai and I am actually an undergraduate student who has an interest in becoming a Physician Assistant. I am doing a project for one of my class and I have to interview a professional about their community. More specifically, we are focused on how different communities use different languages and writings to communicate to each other. I will be using your answers as part of my project (in the form of a presentation), but will remain anonymous. Please help me and Answer as freely as you would like. I really appreciate it! 1. Do Physician Assistants communicate with other Physician Assistants, or people of other profession, often? How often do you communicate with other people during your day (even on your days off)? 2. In what ways are you communicating with other professionals? Writing? etc? Are there specific ways you address, speak, or write to other professionals? 3. What about non-professionals? If you meet students often, what differences do you see when speaking/writing to them compared to professionals? 4. When talking to patients/people outside the community, how do you do so? Do you use a different way of speaking to them? 5. What types of writing do PA professionals do on the job? Is everything (that is written) to be communicated? Or are they for any other purposes? 6. Are there special documents, forms, or papers that are unique to a professional in the PA field? How do they relate to the PA community? What are some details that are usually included on the documents? 7. What is the most important type of document that a student should know/be able to produce? What special language or writing should a student use if they are interested in the PA career. 8. What is the best way a student can approach this community? How can they start learning how to speak or write in this profession? 9. Do you do research as part of the job? Do you do research outside the job? Is research part of the job? 10. Can you share samples of the documents you’ve told me about today? If not do you know of links, or websites, or other resources that would provide me with samples?
  3. I live in a fairly decent size metropolitan area but work across state lines for a medical group with a small neurosurgery department. I am a salaried full time employee with the med group. There are now two surgeons who collaborate with me. But, the newer surgeon is actually paid by a local academic center and not the med group. The academic center has a business arrangement with the med group to provide 1 neurosurgeon 3 weeks a month. He is filling that role but also has agreements in place with the other surgeon in order to cover patients if an issue comes up. The medical group has furloughed most of the advanced providers across many specialties. Recently it sounds as if the med group does not want to keep my position. However the surgeon (who is paid by the academic center) is interested in continuing to have me work with him and hire me as a private assist to him. He is not in a position to provide benefits which is okay with me to negotiate around. It seems that being an independent contractor 1099 is not the correct way to be employed by him technically since I won't really determine my own hours or provide any materials etc. Im looking for options on how to work with him. Does anyone have what appears to look like a standard supervisory arrangement with their surgeon but goes about it in an unconventional way? I really like the surgeon and he is loyal to me. He does his fair share of work and gives me the freedom to do a lot more than the other surgeon in the OR.
  4. Hi, how did everyone study for the professional practice section of the PANCE? What would be high yield topics there? Our program gave us little to no insight on this and they seemed to not care much since it is only 5% of the pance. Thanks in advance!!
  5. Is there any professional physician assistant willing to review my personal statement. I understand you all have a busy schedule but if you have a moment to tell me what you think I would really appreciate it.
