Looking for rotation in the Atlanta area

Recommended Posts

I'm in my 2nd year of PA school here in Ohio and my wife and I are wanting to move to the north Atlanta area.  I graduate in July and will take the PANCE in early August.  It would be much easier to find a job in the Atlanta area if I could at least network with some PA's and/or docs there.  I've already had the scheduled emergency med rotation and absolutely loved it so I plan to start my career in that field.  In early April I have a two week elective rotation so I would love to find a preceptor in an ED that I could work with.  If any of you have some contacts I would certainly appreciate a reply.

      Hello! 
      I was wondering if anyone knew of a practice or preceptor that would be willing to take on a student for a psych rotation in either Pittsburgh or Houston. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you!

      What is the process of creating a clinical site or at least an affiliation with a doctor or organization for one student to do a rotation at? I have been desperately trying to get clinical rotations in CA, my home, while I am currently out of state. I have situational depression and I know that being able to do rotations back at home would help immensely with my focus, happiness, and health, but my school won't budge in helping me. Their reasoning was that it's too much work for them to make affiliations with new sites. I have found doctors willing to take me in for rotations though, so the only thing left would be the paperwork which I thought was in large part filled out by the preceptor. Does anyone know anything about this, and if so, could you please help me understand?

      I have recently started a rotation at an ER. I am being asked to do lots of EKGs, transport patients to the floor, put them in gowns, getting blankets, helping them with bed pans and changing diapers. I'm not above these tasks, but I'm just not sure if this is the norm. I'm being assigned way more of these duties than getting to see patients or perform procedures. Has anyone else had a similar experience in an ER?

      My name is Alexandra I am a 1st year PA student in my second semester at Barry University in Florida. It has always been an aspiration of mine to move to Hawaii and build a life there. I was hoping to get some advice on who to contact for available rotations for PA students. 
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you!

      Hi, 
      So here's the story.  I am beginning my first rotation and it is in the ED (no previous ED or UC experience).  My preceptors are all very nice and willing to help, but I can't help but feeling like I am neither measuring up nor reflecting my program well.  I wanted to get some feedback to gauge if this is a normal experience, as there are no other PA students at my site to compare notes with.  I received an hour training on the EHR and beginning the second day was expected to see a few patients on my own and present them to my preceptor with assessment and plan.  This wouldn't be a problem except that I am very slow in addition to having forgotten a lot of the medicine (I have a 3.8+ GPA from didactic year, but once I took the test most of the info seemed to blur into general confusion).  I have no idea what to do with the mass of lab results from the current and previous ED encounters, nor sure that I've ruled out even 50% of the serious conditions.  I am also very slow at charting (for reference, my program allowed multiple days to finish one entire SOAP or H&P note).  I am also very poor at multi-tasking, which is an awful quality for the ED.  I know I am trying and that I am reasonably intelligent, but this makes me think I should have stuck with some desk job rather than managing healthcare. For all of these reasons I can tell that I am a drain on the preceptors who are already busy. I get that I am here to learn from the preceptors, but can't help but feel that this is not how things should be.  I do ask for feedback, but the preceptors are SO nice that I can't tell what they truly think. I'd appreciate any advice, what's normal, whats not, etc.
