CALIFORNIA: University of La Verne 2016-2017

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen anything on the forum about this school so I decided To start a new thread for the 2016-2017 application cycle at the University of La Verne. The program is not accredited yet. I submitted my application yesterday. According to the program director they do not utilize rolling admissions. Has anybody else applied here?

If anyone does not mind me asking, when was your application verified in CASPA and submitted to the school? I ask because the cycle closed on Oct 1st but on the school website it states all material has to be submitted and verified by 22 Sept.

My CASPA was verified sometime in late August but I submitted this application on September 20. I don't see anywhere on the school website about it being verified by September 22. I only see it needing to be verified by October 1st.

Spot open.   I graciously received an interview for the University of La Verne.  I am declining this offer to open the opportunity to another  applicant.  I have received an offer and an interview invite to my top 2 school choices. I have waited 15 years for this opportunity and am very humbled now that the door has been opened to me.  Good luck to everyone applying. Don't give up on your dreams. 

Sincerely, Optomist

Hi ER Tech, where are you flying in from? I wish I could meet Thursday for evening but my schedule is a little tight. Good luck!

Had an interview today, it was fun! :D

The faculty were all very nice and comforting. I had an interview yesterday as well. What group were you in? I was a part of the morning by group.

      Looking to do a rotation in the Bay area in 2021 as I would like to move there after graduation to practice. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on clinical rotations anywhere in the San Jose, San Fransisco, or Oakland area. Open to any specialty. Thank you!

      Hi!
      My name is Shelby, I am a medical assistant at a private orthopedic practice in San Mateo, CA. I have acquired over 3,000 hours of patient care experience and healthcare experience in this position. Our office is currently looking for pre-PA students to fill two available staff positions. The first is a MA/CNA position. The second is an administrative assistant position, which has the potential to move up into a MA/CNA role. Certification (CNA, MA) and experience is preferred for both positions, but not required. 
      As a small practice, we have a great team approach to patient care. You will have the opportunity to work closely with the PA and orthopedic surgeon. Many job duties allow you to be present in the room during patient visits so you can become familiar with the PA scope of practice. Additionally, both the orthopedic surgeon and PA are excellent mentors and educators. If you are eager to learn more about orthopedics and medicine in general, they are always willing to share their expertise. 
      If you live in the Bay Area or are looking to move to the Bay Area, this is a great opportunity to prepare you for PA school. Below is the job listing for both positions. 
      https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/hea/d/san-mateo-medical-assistant-cna-and/7185888927.html
      If you are interested, you can respond to the listing or email your cover letter and resume to ma2@oiba.us .  
      Thanks!
      Shelby

      Received my first job offer today.  Would like some input as to my compensation package!  Thank y'all in advance for your feedback!
      Location: Los Angeles
      Practice: working closely with one physician, mostly surgical FA with pre and post op care, some wound care that requires travel, and some work in the cosmetic clinic; currently projected at a 6 month intensive training period but physician is open to tailor it based upon my progression
      Salary: $95k for the first year with government standard mileage if I'm doing house calls or traveling between clinics, no guarenteed raise that I'm aware of, opportunity to restructure to base + % of collections once I'm productive, no salary cap
      Hours: likely 50+ hours/week based upon what current PA works, will take call and round on hospital patients on the weekends but am able to request some weekends off if I feel that I need some free time (physician states they may consider splitting call and rounding between myself and the current PA)
      Benefits: 3 month probationary period, 401K with match, health insurance (HSA) with 3600/year employer contribution, 10 days ETO for the first year that I begin accruing day 1 but cannot use until after probabtion, I will be added to the practice's existing malpractice policy +/- tail coverage, medical center parking covered by employer
      No CME allowance or dedicated time off for CME (expected to go to affiliated hospital for free CME or request employer to pay for CME on a case by case basis)
      DEA required but not paid for by employer.
      State license and associated fees not paid for by employer.
      I'm not so sure the physician is open to negotiations on this contract.  May possibly increase my salary if I give up some benefits.  PA that currently works for physician says the physician is a fantastic educator and states I will learn an enormous amount. 
      My dilemma is that my salary seems far below average/median salary for new grad California PAs (115k based off AAPA salary report), however, this offer is on par with 0 to 1 year experience plastics PA salaries reported in the AAPA salary report, though the statistical population is very small (n=7). I know plastics is hard to break into as a new grad and the experience I would gain is invaluable but given LA has such a high cost of living, I wonder if I should hold out until another job offer with higher pay comes around.  It seems very possible that my salary may increase rapidly after the first year if I truly put in the work but that hasn't been directly stated.

New grad, I liked what I saw during the visit. Not looking for some one to make a decision for me, but any information would be great.
