I am a new grad PA and I start a job in a month for a GI consulting service. I will spend 3 weeks of the month in the hospital doing consults, rounding, dictating notes and 1 week in clinic. I did a rotation in GI during school, but it was all outpatient Hepatology with a day a week in a general GI clinic. So I don't feel super prepared to go to the consulting service right now.
Can any GI PAs recommend any books/resources that you found helpful for hospital work? It would be greatly appreciated!! I found a book online called: Textbook of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition--- It is quite pricy-- 250$.... But it if it useful I will buy it.
Hi! I am a student planning to apply for CASPA next year and all I need is to shadow physician assistant. It's been difficult for me to find someone at the facility I am working at. I did found one but the waiting is long and I do not know when she can have me shadow her. I hope to find someone to shadow in Houston, TX. I don't plan to disturb the PA with many questions because I understand how busy it must be. I would like to spend time observing the PA. Thank you in advance!
Does anyone here know what the preferred housing options are for the students in the PA program? Is it more convenient/affordable for the students to live in the dorms on campus or do most of the students commute from elsewhere in Manhattan/another boro for the entirety of the program? Thanks in advance!
