I have two interviews this week, one with a private urgent care clinic and one with a hospitalist general IM program at a teaching hospital. I am looking for some good interview questions I may not have thought of yet. Here's what I have so far.
1. New position or taking over an old position
2. Shift model
3. Call time and holiday/OT pay
4. Average # of patients per day
5. What does the patient population look like
6. How many providers work per shift
7. Support team
8. PTO, CME, benefits, malpractice coverage
9. Lab services
10. EMR system
11. Orientation time
Am I missing anything? Let me know your questions and any advice you may have!
Looking for recommendations for good prescribing software .
I've seen Epocrates, Uptodate, Dynamed, these offer prescribing guidance and basic interactions
A new one is LotsofMeds - this one checks full patient data against drugs, like a full spectrum interaction checker which has not been done before. It also has adverse effects comparisons which is very handy.
I'm applying for the first time this cycle and I currently work as a medical assistant and could get some strong letters of reference from an NP, MD, and a practice manager. I go to a large school for undergrad and haven't gotten close to any professors. I took microbiology last semester and went to my professors office hours 3 times, and since I have no one else I asked her if she would be willing to write a letter. She said she would if she I needed an professor to write one, and if I did not have another professor who knew me better.
So my question is... since she doesn't know me very well, would it still be worth getting a letter from her just because it would be an academic letter, or would it be more valuable to get a clinical reference listed above that can speak much more about my work ethic, character, etc?
Hi Future Colleagues!
My name is Aaron Shaw. I graduated last year from the University of Toledo Medical Center PA School. I have been practicing Neurosurgery the past year in College Station, Texas. Over the past two years I have been writing a book for: Students going into PA school, Current PA students, MD Students, DO Students and NP Students. On February 15th, 2017 my book was published and it is on Amazon for sale! Honestly I wish I had a book like this before and during PA school as life would have been much easier. I used this book and purchased a few practice tests from the NCCPA before taking the PANCE and passing it with flying colors the first time! It is my hope that you will check out my new book and hopefully make your study sessions much higher yield!
Below is the Amazon website for my book!
All the best to all those applying to PA school and for those studying for the PANCE.
