Any EMPAs in AZ or NV?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm a second year PA student and I want to work in EM in either AZ or NV. I have some questions for those who are familiar with the EMPA job market in this region. If you could make a post here, I can PM you or if you could PM me directly that would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance! 

I'm an EMPA in AZ. The best advice I have for starting in EM as a new grad is to do a rotation with a group you'd want to work with. I couldn't get a single interview with EM groups because they just don't hire new grads that they don't know. I ended up working with the group I rotated with because they knew me and I guess they liked me because they hired me right out of school. I would do EM electives, as well. The more experience you can get, the better.

In AZ it seems really hard to get an actual ER job as a new grad. There are new grad PA "fellowships" at Banner Boswell and Sun City in Phoenix - no formal education; you just start working for really low pay, less than some nurses, and hope they offer you a job after six months. They really shouldn't call it a fellowship. You should try the ER in Lake Havasu or Yuma - both great ERs and at time were open to hiring the right new grad.
