I'm a recent graduate and am about to start working in IM in a few weeks. I'm definitely really nervous, probably more so because it is my first job but also because I'm doing IM! I decided to go with IM when I graduated because it's general medicine and would give you a feel for everything and also because I wasn't sure what I wanted to specialize in. I'm just curious as to how it was like for other people with their first IM job.


Appreciate it. Thank you. :)

Congratulations and welcome to Primary Care. I believe you have made a good choice.


Hopefully your supervisor physician will help you transition into practice, or at least allow you sufficient time with patients for comprehensive exams and evaluations. Do you know how many patients per day you will be required to see? Will you SP be available if you have Q's? What is your background (HCE)? Average age of patients? (teens to Seniors vs only 65 and older) Are you proficient with EKGs? What lab/procedures does your practice do in-house?

IM was not my first job, but it is my current specialty FP/IM. Love it! 


When will you start? I wish you the best.

      This is going to sound pretty dumb but I'm serious! I'm so confused when it comes to applying to PA schools regarding the prerequisite coursework. I know MEDEX say that the courses can't be a part of prior training, but then I read online articles about how to incorporate prereqs for PA schools into your undergrad experience, killing 2 birds with 1 stone sorta thing...I understand the necessary courses. But I'm having a hard time discerning if the coursework can have been done as a part of one's undergrad. For example the cellular bio I took in my undergrad. Will that be applicable to MEDEX? Or does every prereq have to be done after completing one's bachelors? By the way I have a BA, not a BS. I'm late to the party:(

      Hey everyone,
      It was great to meet so many amazing, skilled people at the interview yesterday!  I was wondering if anyone wanted to keep in touch after the interviews?  It’s always good to network, right?  Anyway, hit me up if anyone wants to talk about anything PA related or not.  I wish everyone the best of luck in all your interviews and future PA endeavors!

      I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.

      Hey everyone!
      I am creating this form so everyone that who has received an acceptance phone call/letter can communicate together more efficiently. Has anyone received a phone call yet? If and when you receive an acceptance phone call/letter be sure to let us know so everyone can keep track of who is going to be the future classmates of Tacoma Class 6. Best wishes to everyone!

      I'd like to meetup on Friday in the evening if anyone is interested. I'm thinking seven seas brewing, it's close to campus.
