  1. Hi- I currently work as a Hospitalist PA at an academic medical center. Wondering what schedule other PAs have for Hospital Medicine PAs. The two most common schedules that I have discovered include: 1) 7 on, 7 off 2) 12 or 13 12 hour shifts/month Any other models? What are your PTO benefits? Thanks!

  3. Surgical PAs! I'm curious to know how your schedules are structured. I'm hoping to gain insight on how similar practices operate and hopefully create a more efficient structure for my own group. I'm currently part of a hospital based neurosurgery group consisting of 7 PAs and 7 surgeons (when fully staffed, + 2 surgeons who are there part time). We also have a residency program. PA responsibilities include call (6a-6p), inpatient, clinic, and OR. We work 4 days a week with a rotating day off to keep us under/near 50 hours/week, and 1/8 Saturdays. We are, as a whole, looking for a more 1:

  5. Hey all, Recent grad here and I've been in talks about per diem work for a second ER. My question is how your scheduling works out between your FT and per diem. I've been under the impression that a schedule will be available to me for the per diem site, and I pick up any available shift at my leisure. But this doesn't seem to be the case so far. I've been asked to guarantee 3 shifts a month including one weekend shift, plus a summer and a winter holiday every year. I talked that down to just one guaranteed weekend shift per month. Also, my FT job hasn't published a schedul
  6. I thought I would ask professional PA's if it was possible to only work 6 or 7 months out of the year. Do you know any PA's with a schedule like that or do you have any information to make 6 month on 6 months off possible. I would love to be a PA but traveling has also become a passion of mine ,and working 6 or 7 months out of the year would give me plenty of time to travel. It actually seems more common in the nursing world and might actually be easier in the nursing world but I decided to check here before making a decision.
  7. Hi everyone, I used to work in veterinary medicine, and recently I took 3 pre-req courses for PA. I am really interested in becoming a PA because it feels like the most important thing I can do. I like helping people with their health. However, I have a five year old son, and I worry that I won't be able to keep up with the workload of school. I've heard that UNT is school mostly M-F 8:00 - 5:00 with extra studying as well. How many hours per week do you typically study? Once you're out of school and practicing, what is realistic as far as your schedule? I always like to logically
  8. I need help. First off, this is the draft I liked the most out of many that I've written up. 1.) I need to condense this by 1000ish words 2.) I need to focus more on why PA I think...but Its honest and probably the most personal essay that I can come up with. ANY constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. I'm still working on making this something I will be proud to apply with...and yes I know there are grammar mistakes, but feel free to fix those too. It was during my junior year of college that I had begun physical therapy to rehabilitate my recently discovered herniated disc i
  9. Hi everyone! I am currently a Junior Pre-Physician Assistant student in a direct entry program beginning in Fall 2014. I have to make my schedule soon and was hoping to get some advice as to what classes are most beneficial. After this semester, I will have taken all the required science courses. I've taken a full year of Inorganic Chemistry and labs, a full year of Introductory Biology and labs, Genetics, Human Physiology, a combined course (specific for Pre-PA students) of Organic Chem/Biochem, and I am currently taking Microbiology and Human Anatomy and Physiology 1. Next semester,
  10. Hello, this is for any BCM students out there. I wanted to know what a typical semester looks like at BCM. For example, what is your schedule? How many breaks do you get per semester? I am part of an organization that invited Mr. Carl Fasser to speak to us about BCM. He mentioned something about having a cycle 8 weeks of class, 1 week of testing, 1 week off over and over. I wanted to know how this worked. I want to get married before I start PA school so I wanted to know how I could manage my time. I know there are many people out there studying for PA that are married, so I think it is possib
  11. Hello, this is for any UTMB students out there. I wanted to know what a typical semester looks like at BCM. How many hours per day at you at class, or just what your schedule looks like? How many breaks are there? I want to get married before I attend PA school. I know there are people out there who are married, so i think it is possible. I just want to know the type of schedule to see how I could manage my time. Also, is there any married women out there who could share their experience or advice?
  12. I just graduated in May & accepted a job in Transplant Surgery, and I need advice/suggestions for forming my work schedule. There are 3 surgeons, and I am the only midlevel. I work almost exclusively in the OR - assisting on recipient operations, and I go on procurements as well. In a few months we are adding 2 more surgeons. The surgeons have never had a PA before, so they don't know how to make a schedule for me. They basically asked me to make up a draft and we'd try it out. Right now, I am pretty much on call 24/7 in case we find a donor & have to go on a procurement. It is unders
