  1. I didn't see this, so I figured I would get it started. I just got an e-mail inviting me for an interview on Friday, June 23rd! Anyone else applying/interviewing with Mary Baldwin? Any current students have any insight on the program?
  2. Hi! So I am planning to apply to EVMS this summer. I am signed up for the MPA Information Session on June 17th, 2017. Is anyone else attending the info session and/or planning to apply for the class of 2021?

I am a first semester freshman in college and need to start picking classes depending on what I want to be in life. Being a PA sounds so interesting, but I want to see it for myself hands on. please help!! :)

  5. Hi All! I am about to graduate from PA school this fall, and have begun looking into the licensing process. I plan to practice in the DC metro area (DC, MD, VA), and was wondering whether any folks living in/around DC have advice about licensing in the DC metro area? In particular, has anyone heard whether there is reciprocity between any of the states in the DC metro area? I'm planning to begin the licensing process for all three states, but to ultimately only submit my licensing application for the specific state in which I get a job. I'd really appreciate any insight you have about licensing/jobs in general in the DC Metro area! Thanks! Joanna
  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. Hi everyone! I'm graduating this May with a B.S. in Nutrition/Dietetics, and heading down to Virginia soon after to be with my significant other. I have been perusing the job boards in the area that I'm moving to get an idea of what medical assistant jobs are posted and what the typical qualifications are. Anyways, I see that in Virginia, as opposed to Pennsylvania where I live now, most medical assistant job postings require the medical assistant certificate. I was kind of hoping that I can get an MA position to finally accumulate HCE. I have my EMT-B certification, but have never ran for the company I'm affiliated with (got it out of state and I am still waiting on my instate certification...). Do you think it's pointless to apply for these MA jobs, or will my current certification be useful? Prior to me receiving my EMT-B certification, I had plans to transfer my certification to VA and work in an ED or for a station; however, seeing as it has taken 5 months already to transfer my certificate from one state to another, I decided to not do that (should have traveled and taken the in state class, huh). My goal was to apply this coming summer, but it looks like I might have to postpone my application for another year. Any advice/insight?
  9. Imagine you are a patient and arrive at the clinic. You are handed a piece of paper that describes two health care professionals that are available for you to pick from. Which PA would you choose? Physician Assistant: A Physician Assistant (PA) is a health care provider licensed to practice medicine under the supervision of a physician. PAs can examine a patient, order labs and radiology studies, interpret the studies, diagnose and treat patients and provide health education. PAs can not practice independently and can prescribe medications under a delegation act from a physician. Physician Associate: A Physician Associate (PA) is a health care provider licensed to practice medicine and works collaboratively with physicians and other health care professionals. PAs can examine a patient, order lab and radiology studies, interpret the studies, diagnose and treat patients and provide health education. PAs make autonomous treatment decisions and can prescribe medications in all settings. Which PA would you choose? Which way would you like PAs to be described in news article, in state laws, with state legislatures and at your employer's office?
  10. Our group has hired a few new hires but the established members disagree about how best to approach training the new people. In one camp, there's the "expose them to everything" group. The other camp is "make sure they learn how to do simple stuff." Either way, it's hard to design an orientation "program" for new hires. What would you include? How long do you orient your new PAs (specifically in emergency medicine)? How do you train them? Do you just scheduled them to work double coverage where they are not actually needed and can work at their own pace and then help them as they go? Do you do suture/abscess/other procedure labs? Do you have them read anything? Thoughts welcome.
  11. Hello! I am looking for shadowing opportunities for this summer in Northern Virginia. I am open to shadowing anywhere but would prefer a hospital setting. All help would be greatly appreciated :)
  12. Does anyone know of any PAs who own a practice in Virginia? I am retiring from the military soon and looking to possibly open a practice. Any info would be most appreciated, thanks.
  13. Any PAs, PA-S, are pre-PAs out there in the VA or D.C. metro area? I'd love to connect!
  14. I am searching for a PA to shadow in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Hampton or Newport News, Virginia. If you are a PA who would be willing to allow me to shadow you or know of someone else in these areas who would be willing texperiences would be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Kristan
  15. Hi All, With respect to the rash that I have been discussing on this forum, the one that has not yet been definitively identified, due to the extreme restrictions with respect to posting images on this forum, I've had to crop and re-crop the image, which has caused it become very blurry. If there are any dermatology PAs who would like to assist me further, I can send them a much better defined image of the rash if I send it to your personal e-mail address. If any dermatology PAs would therefore like to further assist me in identifying this very itchy rash, please send a message to my personal e-mail address at mea505@cox.net. I will then forward a much better defined rash to your e-mail address. I would appreciate any replies and assistance. Thanks,
  16. I have been working in Cardiothoracic Critical Care for the past 2.5 years and am looking to make the transition to Interventional Radiology here in Northern Virginia. The practice I am currently interviewing with is hiring their first PA and I was wondering how typical practices work with PAs and what you usually do, so I can promote this position along with starting salary ranges. Thanks!
