I have some CME money to spend and am looking for some self-study opportunities in EM.  Can anyone offer some suggestions?  I have completed the EM Bootcamp course and have completed the Urgent Care Core Curriculum course as well.  Could use a good ECG interpretation course and plan on ordering the advanced Bootcamp course in February when available.

I took one semester (2 courses) about 2 years ago.  It was "ok".  Basically a structured review of Tintinalli's with weekly readings and weekly vignettes which required online responses.  Testing is online as well.  I would have completed it; however at $13,000 it is very expensive for a "certificate" course.  I only get $1500 a year in CME money annually so that would mean $8500 out of pocket.   Frankly, I did not find it to be nearly as beneficial as say EM Bootcamp ($500 self study) or the Core Curriculum in Urgent Care Medicine (about $1,100).

      I'm a new grad PA on the job hunt. I've been applying to everything but I really want to work in the ED, inpatient hospitalist, or in an urgent care. I've applied to countless job postings (over 120) with only a couple phone interviews, but nothing has really panned out. I'm also willing to relocate and have passed my boards. It seems like those specialties aren't hiring new grads right now which is frustrating. 
      I just recently received an offer from an addiction medicine clinic I interviewed at. They're offering 85k until I'm credentialed then 105k. They have an RVU bonus up to 35k per year. Malpractice and medical insurance are covered with 401K matching and 3 weeks PTO for the first year then 5 weeks after. The clinic is great, the providers truly care about their patients. It's not just a methadone clinic, they have group therapy, psychologists, social workers, and coaches for their patients. In addition, everybody there seems to truly care about what they do. 
      My only apprehension with accepting this offer is that I'll get stuck in addiction medicine/behavioral health. It's easy to get pigeon-holed and lose a lot of your general clinic knowledge working in behavioral health. I'm worried I won't be able to transition to working in the ED which is what I truly desire. So my question is, does anyone have insight or transition from addiction medicine/behavioral health to another specialty, such as family med, hospital med, GI, etc...? Should I reject the offer and wait it out until I get a position in a medical specialty?

      Hey all,
      Prior active duty currently in the reserves and will be applying for the IPAP not this up coming cycle but the next. And one thing my wife and I talked about was potentially going back to active duty to finish out my 20 years. I know that if you go to IPAP as a reservist you have to do 6 years as a reserve PA, but the question is is it possible to go active after that 6 (or even before the 6 are up) and is that process the same with the 369 form? 
      Any guidance is welcome since we’re serious about it!

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks in advance!
