  2. Hi All, I was wondering if there are any places taking students for rotations starting in Jan 2021? I would love a rotation in San Diego sometime between January and April as my husband is mobilized there with the NH Army National Guard. Other areas of geographical interest are the Midwest, New England, Alaska and Hawaii for Jan 2021-Dec 2021. Specifically rotations located in the following places: Western SD, Cheyenne, WY, Casper, WY, Western Nebraska, Denver, CO area inc. the foothills, Sioux City, IA, Topeka, KS, Indianapolis, IN, Palmer, AK, Hawaii, Minnesota, NH, VT,
  3. I was wondering if anyone has been hired by the VA recently and what their opinion was of it? Knew PA vs NP salaries at one point were lacking parity, but didn't know how the rest of the benefits were. Thanks!
  4. My mother is a RN who has worked in the VA hospital system for the past 5 years. She's been saying I should try to get in ASAP and get the benefits, along with other perks. I have a lot of in-laws that work at the VA (non-provider roles) and they all agree. They say it's not as organized as the private sector roles but all agree that the benefits outweigh the annoyances. I applied for a job on a whim, not thinking anything of it and I actually got a message on their website stating I was "not selected". But an HR rep called me last week to set up an appointment for an interview, which I
  5. For those of you who have filed for VA compensation then subsequently applied for vocational rehab (chapter 31 benefits), how long did the process take? I am still a reserve PJ and have taken my bumps and bruises over the last six years. I am not broken like some of my brothers but I do believe I might rate at 10% or higher which would leave me eligible for Chapter 31. I am deploying soon and will return this fall, matriculating in January to PA school. Knowing the speed the VA moves would it be possible to work with a Veteran Service Organization (VSO) while overseas to get the ball rolling,
  6. Just starting a thread on the new PA program in Virginia! Anyone heard from this school regarding apps?
  7. Hey everyone! I didn't see a forum for this cycle yet so I just wanted to start one. Who else is applying this year!?!
  8. This last semester I wrote a thesis discussing the downward trend of veteran enrollment into PA schools (down to 4% of matriculants in the 2012 cycle), and some of the barriers faced by veterans getting into PA school. My professor had just completed a fellowship in DC working in Senator Blumenthal's office (who sits on the Senate Veteran Affairs committee). She liked my paper and presentation. So much so that I am slated to discuss my paper with Senator Blumenthal's staff in June. While this is a great opportunity, I don't believe in giving a presentation like this without offering solu
  9. I'm separating from the military in 2 months after 3 years of service as a PA in primary care and was recently extended 2 job offers; one with the VA in primary care, the other an occ med job with a non-profit organization run by Catholic Health Initiatives. As I consider what I'm looking for in my next job, factors such as work-family balance, minimal red tape and stress are more important than pay. Both offer good benefits. Can anyone offer any insight to life as a PA with the VA and how that job might compare with a position with a non-profit? Thanks!
  10. Looking for some HCE feedback. Been working @ VA for 3+ years, all PTSD research - first two years were as EMG startle tech (running emg testing 1on1, 12 patients a day) working on base with AD marines. Now last 8 months is PTSD screening (CAPS) appointments with veterans I screen for eligibilty and schedule myself. Appointments include 2x 1on1 sessions; I assess for validity and we discuss trauma, symptoms and other life stressors in depth, before they are randomized (if I deem eligible) to a treatment program. Usually 5+ hours 1on1 per patient. Also includes lab work, I don't dr
  11. Anyone know of any shadowing available in the hampton roads area? thanks
