  5. Hey everyone!! Hoping to get some insight on my offer for a position at a Level II trauma center in SoCal.

Training will include running traumas, first assist, various procedures, ICU and vent management, etc. No surgery residents. They currently have 3 NPs and 1 PA and are looking to expand.

  7. Hello all! I am a recent new grad who was offered a position in Trauma in SoCal. Though, I had never expected going into trauma, I am very excited for this opportunity and challenge!! Unfortunately I do not have much experience in ER, but the trauma surgeon really liked my personality so is willing to invest serious training. I am the first Truama PA at this hospital, so I do not really have a mentor to ask for tips from. Does anyone have any recommendations for resources, books, apps they used to best prepare for this role? Any other advice from fellow Trauma PAs out there?? Thanks

  10. Has anyone here used NEJM Knowledge Plus to get CME? What is the best CME sources for surgery/trauma/critical care that doesn't cost an arm and a leg plus my left kidney? Thanks
  11. I started my practice in an ED at a level one trauma center and was informally trained in bedside ultrasound on the job. Over my 3.5 years with the group, PAs were brought into the same rigorous training standards as the EM residents with the goal of securing credentialing for all PAs. I ultimately completed the requisite exams and was technically credentialed at that point. I left that position shortly after and began working with another area organization in EM. Bedside ultrasound is culturally used less as the average practitioner with my current group has less experience, however many
  12. I'm currently a trauma PA at a level 1 trauma center. I have about a year experience. I'm looking for a new trauma PA position for relocation and salary purposes. If anyone knows of any locations looking to hire, could you please let me know? Thank you.
  13. I am currently a Trauma PA at a level I trauma center. My salary is below the national average, but according to the hospital system it's based on "years of experience". So as a recent graduate, I'm placed at the bottom of the salary bracket. Unfortunately, PAs are not well compensated at this hospital. I love my job though and therefore have been doing some research to present data to my employer of what mid-levels are making in trauma. If there are any trauma PAs that work for a level I or II trauma center and would be willing to share their salary and any other compensation (bonus, CME, lic
  14. I recently passed my PANCE and have been offered a trauma position at a level I hospital. I really want to pursue a trauma career and I am very excited to have the opportunity as a new grad. The offer is $35.89/hour but salary position, therefore no overtime or holiday pay. It works out to about $74,651 which is below the national average for new grad salaries. Malpractice is covered but no CME coverage. I've been told the hospital does provide enough opportunities to meet the minimum amount of CMEs though. Vision, dental, and medical insurance. PTO is accrued the more time I work, which I'm
  15. Hi gang, I'm hoping you all can help me. I have been working with a solo practice physician for 3 years now. We make an excellent team and he is very easy to work for. Regardless, I feel like I am being shorted financially and I am trying to work with him to improve my compensation/benefits package. Here is what I get now: $109,000 base salary, includes stipend to buy own health insurance policy bonuses - basically quarterly, generally always $1,000 pre-tax, amorphously tied to my production/performance 2 Fridays off per month + 4 weeks of PTO (vacation, sick, and CME leave) CME allowa
  16. Hello! I found this forum and I think it is a wonderful help. I have been working on my narrative and have had several people review it but I could use the suggestions of someone who does not know me. Thank you! I am 34 years old, I have a good job and a wonderful family. Many people might wonder why I would decide to go back to school at this time in my life. The answer is simple. There is a need for health care providers in my area and I can help fill it. I work with patients on a daily basis as a certified ophthalmic technician (COT) who share with me the frustrations that they have whe
  17. Looking at my options for navy PA career... In night classes working towards my bachelors, and working full time at the VA working with veterans with PTSD...treatment and research. Mainly working with combat trauma, some MST, ranging from WWII to OND. All branches. Will be switching to full time school once current DOD funding is up in two years time.

My school background is British (an English equivalent of pre-med/pre-vet
  18. Does anyone know if any hospitals in Miami, Fl. hire PA's for their critical care units? Or in South Florida? Any experienced ICU PA's there or elsewhere find they are satisfied with their positions in the ICU (allowed to do procedures/ sufficient amount of autonomy/ used appropriately in the team model / happy with pay, etc)? Looking to gain more knowledge about PA's in the ICU/critical care field, any info is much appreciated! Thanks :)
  19. Am I allowed to officially sign documents PA-C once I have passed the NCCPA exam? Do these laws differ by state?
  20. Hi, so I'm new to the forum and I am really interested in becoming a PA. I know that Trauma PAs and ER PAs are different but I am interested in the "duties" of the ER PA. Is it true that the ER PA will see the more minor cases while the Physician will run the code or stabilize the trauma pt? I have many doctors and nurses in my family and they all give me different answers. I understand that the duties vary but in general what are the primary duties? Personal examples are good too! Basically, I don't want to become an ER PA if it means I will be treating the lacerations and stuff, I would r
