Does anyone work in peds hem/onc? My dream job would be to work in that inpatient specialty. I am coming upon the end as my first year as a PA-C in family medicine, and I didn't practice as much peds as I would have hoped. So I am looking into getting more solid peds experience. While I am getting that, is there any way I can get more experience in hem/onc? Classes or certification I can take? All the jobs seem to require at least 2-3 years of experience, but I'd like to learn as much as possible about it.

 

Wondering how to get my foot in the door.

 

Thanks so much!

      I am registering for the CAQ exam next year and would love feedback from those of you who have been through the process.
       
      1. What study materials did you guys use? I'm looking at Med Study (but I've heard the books are very dense) and the Pediatric Board Review books by Asish Goyal. I'm wondering which is best...there is also AAP Prep?
      2. How long did you guys study for? 
      Thanks. I appreciate any feedback!

      Hi there,
      I have my 2nd interview for an inpatient GI position coming up. It sounds like a good step for me coming from family practice/ geriatrics. can someone tell me what day to day inpatient service is like? What are challenges I might not be aware of ahead of time? what are good resources to study? 
      thanks TW

      Hello!
      I am a new grad PA and I start a job in a month for a GI consulting service. I will spend 3 weeks of the month in the hospital doing consults, rounding, dictating notes and 1 week in clinic. I did a rotation in GI during school, but it was all outpatient Hepatology with a day a week in a general GI clinic. So I don't feel super prepared to go to the consulting service right now.
      Can any GI PAs recommend any books/resources that you found helpful for hospital work? It would be greatly appreciated!! I found a book online called: Textbook of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition--- It is quite pricy-- 250$.... But it if it useful I will buy it.

      Please any advice is appreciated!! 
      Thanks!
