  1. Hello everyone! I thought I would start a thread for this cycle. Waiting for my transcripts to be received by caspa and then I plan on submitting.
  2. Hi! My name is Hillary Simeone and I am a second year Physician Assistant student. I am looking for a preceptor and site to fulfill my elective rotation, seventh rotation of eight total, in the Dallas, Texas area. The dates for this rotation would be: September 13th, 2021 - October 20th, 2021. I have an open mind regarding my elective rotation and am open to new learning experiences. I can provide my CV to any prospective preceptor for consideration. Thank you for taking the time to read this! email: hillarysimeone@gmail.com
  3. Eager to find a PA/NP/MD provider willing to precept me for a 2 week rotation in April! Ideally a specialty practice but also open to primary care. Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone, I am starting my clinical year in January 2021, but you can never get too ahead of the game! My SO works from home and would like for me to do my rotations in Texas, in the Austin or Dallas area if possible (I know these areas are saturated). I go to a school that will allow me to do as many rotations out of state as I would like. With COVID I realize that this may be impossible, but does anyone have recommendations on contacting preceptors in the state of Texas so that I can ask about doing rotations there? Any information would be helpful, and once again I do acknowledge t
  5. Hello! I recently applied to Texas PA schools in June but I am looking for more ways to gain more shadowing hours for the next application cycle in case I don't get in! How have y'all approached shadowing during COVID? I'm just not sure that PAs would let me shadow them because the COVID risks and social distancing and everything. What experiences have you all had? I am from Texas by the way! COVID precautions are getting pretty relaxed here. I have an opportunity to shadow an orthopedic NP. Do you think that PA schools would see that as valuable? Good luck to everyone applyin
  6. Hi everyone, I am looking for a capstone rotation in Austin, TX. I am graduating in December and the rotation would take place from late Aug to early Dec. I'm not looking for any specific specialty. Anything helps!! Thank you
  7. Good afternoon y'all and Happy New Year! My name is Austin and I am 27 years old. I am a firefighter/paramedic in Texas. I have always been interested in healthcare and helping people, so I thought a good start would be to acquire my EMT certification, and immediately became hooked. So I got hired on with a fire department and obtained my paramedic certification. But I want to continue to expand in the medical field and emergency medicine. I have about 3 years in EMS experience. The only real college experience I have is with my EMT, pre-requisite A&P, and Paramedic. So I know I am probabl

    Texas Licensing

    Can anyone who has been recently licensed by TMB give any input on the time frame? I was assigned a license analyst beginning of October, havent received any updates and it’s now the end of December. I’ve called TMB many times and they said to contact the analyst for updates but haven’t heard back from her either. 
  12. Hi everyone, I have begun the process of getting licensed in Texas. All of my documentation has been submitted and I received notice that I will be assigned an analyst but that this could take several weeks. I have read some of the older topics on this but I was wondering if anyone that has gone through the new licensure process more recently could tell me how long this whole ordeal might take. On the older threads people have been saying the TPAB only meets 4 times a year but I am seeing a schedule that looks like they meet every month. Is this something that changed in 2017? I had a pr
  13. Has anyone received an interview offer for 07/19? I received mine today and I'm super excited!
  14. Hi all, I did not see a link for the 2017-2018 cycle, so I figured I would start one here. Has anyone heard back from Baylor regarding applications? Good luck!

  16. Couldn't find this information anywhere specifically in Texas. I know it depends on the state. Tried checking TAPA and AAPA, I was unsuccessful. Thanks in advance!

  18. Our medical board seems to frequently make decisions outside their mandate mostly oriented towards protecting the financial interests of physicians in Texas. They have repeatedly tried to stop telemedicine and get spanked every time. This is just one instance and we, the taxpayers, foot the bill for defending them in these cases. Recently the Supreme Court ruled the states could be held responsible for the actions of these boards who are virtually unsupervised and seem to answer to no state authority. They recently lost a federal case where, from the board, they tried to regulate practices to
  19. I just moved to Texas/got my PA license after practicing in another state for about 1 year. At an interview, a PA affiliated with the practice told me he does not have a DEA number and that when he needed to write for a controlled substance, he submitted it under his supervising doc's name. ...Is this allowed? My prior state required your supervising doc to co-sign chart within 72 hours of writing a controlled substance. I did see on the TMB site that PAs can write for 30 days of a controlled substance at a time and must document consultation with their supervisor before refilling. Is this cor
  20. Hello! I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. T
  21. Does anyone know if LSU NO or LSU Shreve takes out of state students and what percentage?
  22. Very interesting article Appears that the NCCPA filled Governor Jim Justice head with a bunch of alternative facts, but when the real facts came out he realized his error..... http://www.wvgazettemail.com/gazette-op-ed-commentaries/20170603/rafael-rodighiero-justice-prevails-with-bill-to-improve-patient-care Governor Jim Justice made the right decision this week to include House Bill 116, and its companion bill Senate Bill 1014, on his special legislative session agenda. This legislation enhances the ability of physician assistants (PAs) to provide health care to people who
  23. So this is essentially my first rodeo when it comes to negotiating a contract offer. Reading up on it now and came across this statement. Source: http://cheekyscientist.com/12-tips-on-how-to-negotiate-a-job-offer-to-increase-your-starting-salary/ Based on your experience, is this a good way to go about things. I'm trying to negotiate this contract (http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/index.php?/topic/41261-family-med-offer-need-advice/), and i don't know if i should ask for everything at once or separately, like the author of the article suggests. Any input would be
  24. I thought this was an interesting read. The article is about Np's increasing their independent practice because of "physician shortages." the not so amusing thing is that PAs weren't even mentioned in the article. Im curious if the laws that the nursing lobby proposed included language to include PAs. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/03/18/in-a-fight-between-nurses-and-doctors-the-nurses-are-slowly-winning/
