performing procedures as a GI PA-C

Recommended Posts

I'm in my last few months of PA school and was wondering if anyone knows if PA's are permitted to perform procedures such as EGD, Colonoscopy, ERCP...?

      Hello Everyone,  
      I am graduating PA school in August and have been given a job offer in Gastroenterology.  I am really excited for this job,  but don't know how to negotiate the contract or if it is good enough as it stands.  
      starting pay is $90,000 salary.  mentions bonuses but does not have in writing a sign on bonus moving bonus, RVU performance, or pay raises.  
      PTO 3 weeks, sick leave 1 week, CME 1 week.
      $1500 CME per year.
      year to year contract
      malpractice is included but does not mention a tail
      an 18 month non compete that covers two counties.  I would cause irreparable damage if I break this non compete.  
       
      my negotiating leverage (I was an endoscopy tech for two years.  did my masters thesis on GERD.  I speak Spanish fluently).

      Hello!
      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.

      Please any advice is appreciated!! 
      Thanks!

      Curious if anyone had recommendations for useful gastroenterology books, as I will begin working in an inpatient & outpatient setting in 2 weeks. I would like to study the "basics" so the practice doesn't instantly regret hiring me ;) Any recommendations (or even advice) is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
       
      (P.S. -- yes, I did see that the same question was posted in 2011. Though, would like to see if people have different ideas 7 years later!)
