  1. I was wondering if anyone in ortho can give me an idea of what a routine day is like in clinic? Pre and post op visit? Asses and Dx various MSK conditions? Joint Injections? Splinting and cutting off cast? Is it possible for ortho PAs to help with clinic and rounding on hospital patients and not be involved in surgery? Thanks!
  2. Sometimes my insecurity kicks in, and I think I can I really get into PA school, can I really do this? But after reading this blog, Regrets-of-the-Dying I decided I am NOT going to allow anything or anyone get in my way in becoming the BEST FREAKEN PA ever. LOL 1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. "This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it." 2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard. "This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence." 3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings. "Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result." 4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. "Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying." 5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. "This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called 'comfort' of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again." What will you ALL set out to achieve or change before you die?
  3. For those that are currently in PA school, or are out there practicing, could you please elaborate on your experiences during school and the after years. Some PA programs are literally right next/intertwined with medical student classes; did you ever hear them complaining about wishing to go to PA school instead or vice versa (you wish you went to med school). Are PA's respected in hospital setting by both patients and physicians? Thanks for any help.
