Need to burn $1000 CME fast

Recommended Posts

Any advice to burn roughly a grand of CME money very quickly?  Already using the free trial for AD, do need some new scrubs, I have a littmann cardiology III but it is getting some major wear and tear by now.  Not interested in conferences.  Any advice?!  Thanks all.

Buy a year's access to UpToDate where you can get Cat I CME by inquiring about topics.

netce.com has online CME activities for the future to buy.

 

Get a good stethoscope. Buy a fingertip pulse ox monitor.

 

Look into this new and annoying Cat I CME that is needed.

+1 audio digest. The iPad is probably a junky one, though...

I have thought about this in the past but a mailer this week was somewhat ambiguous about SA qualification.  To me this needs to be a new qualifier for CME subscription services.  After all, how many ways are there to tell me how to treat rhino sinusitis, bronchitis, pharyngitis/tonsillitis, otitis, N/V/D and realize that thrombolytics carry a risk of head/GI bleeds?  Oh, and you have diabetes?  OK, you're going to die 15 years early and that there is a 65% chance it's cardiac as a COD, and if you throw in other vascular disease sources it's now 90%.

What specialty are you in? The PEERVIII review package from ACEP is worth 55 hours of SA credit. Great review if you're in EM

Overnight me a cashiers check.  I'll send a certificate to you complete with a legit looking logo from and accredited CME program of your choice with 100 hours of CME.  But that's not all!  Act now and I'll DOUBLE your CME's to 200 hours AND include a handsome frame for your certificate for FREE!

You offered neither the double CME (for a limited time only!) nor the handsome frame.

you're right. infinity cme for a mere 1000 dollar contribution to ther emedpa cme/porsche fund!

      Hello!
      I am a Pre-PA applying for the second time this cycle. 
      I took 3 science classes this spring to boost my gpa, which is what held me back last year. I'm worried it won't be enough, so I'm considering taking an online pathology course. I found that the University of Minnesota offers it. Has anyone taken this course from this institution? Did you take it else where? Is there another science online course you took in the summer?
       
      Thank you in advance,
      Karina

      Hey everyone,
      There is a lot of information about average GPA for incoming students, however, there is little statistical data about PA students in their didactic year regarding GPA and grades. I realize that grades “don’t really matter” in the grand scheme of things, especially when it comes to jobs (from what I have researched). However, I would really like some input on what GPAs look like in didactic year compared to undergrad GPAs. I realize that every program is different, so this comparison can be hard to make. Is there anyone willing to share their GPA from undergrad and didactic year? Thanks!😀

      Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance!
      Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator. 
       
      cGPA: 3:77
      sGPA: 3.3
      ~1400 hrs as a CNA
      ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away)
      I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I recently got in a car accident and couldn’t get my old job back as a CNA) but this would count as HCE! I could potentially do this from May until late Sept and work ~24hrs/week.
      -Medical mission trip over winter break
      -Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society
      - Multiple deans list
      - Chancellor’s award (scholarship) 
      -Tutored children for a semester (~50 hours)
      - Vice President of my pre-pa club, and was an intern for this club before getting accepted to this position. 

      - I also plan to rack up more hours once I move back to my university 
      Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!

      Hello everyone,
      I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. 
      Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. 
      My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much.
      My PCE (Paid) is 2000.

      I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.
