      Hi All, 
      I am currently a PA who is in a fellowship for epidemiology which is about to end and I am trying to move back closer to Nevada where my family lives (we have a baby boy, now, and really want him to have grandparents around). I was wondering if anyone who lives in Las Vegas/Reno or SLC can share their thoughts on the job market, practice environment, and salaries in NV vs. UT?
      I have a strong background in public health and epidemiology/research, but I am thinking I might switch back to medicine for a while for the pay (my parents don't have enough money saved for retirement) and to keep my clinical skills fresh. I am interested in emergency medicine or any positions that might be well suited for someone with 2 years of Emed experience.  Thanks for your consideration!

      I'm a PA student graduating in June of this year (almost done!).  As I look toward the future and recognize how much I still don't know, residency is sounding more and more appealing.  I think a residency would be ideal for improving my knowledge and skills, gaining confidence, and getting a good job afterward, and I've read so many positive things about residencies from people on this forum.  I'm interested in primary care, specifically family medicine.  I know that there are only a few FM residencies in the country and have done some research--there's one in Iowa and one in Virginia, and also an internal med one in Utah.
      One factor that I'm afraid will be an obstacle is that my GPA is only 3.2.  Do you all foresee this as being a problem at getting an interview or even getting my application looked at?  I had a rough start to PA school but have worked to improve my grades in the time since.  I am a bit older than most students (age 34) and have had some interesting experiences, including living in Southeast Asia for several years, teaching ESL to refugees in the US, and doing a PA school rotation in Africa.  I also play the violin (although not much since PA school took over my life), if that would add to my "interesting person" factor.  My ultimate goal, after a residency and working the States for a few years to pay off school debt, is to go back overseas and work in a rural clinic in some area of the world where medical care is hard to come by.  I think that training in general practice/family med would be a good foundation to lay in order to see that goal ultimately come to fruition.
      I'm at the point where I need to start applying for jobs/residency positions, and I'm thinking that I should probably do both in case I don't get accepted at a residency.  Based on what I've written above, do you all have any suggestions or advice?  Any experience in family practice residencies?  Thanks for anything you may have to offer.

      Guess who's coming to SEMPA 360 in Chicago this year? 
      The EM:RAP team will be returning for a day of fantastic education. There will also be time to meet some of your favorite hosts after the didactic session.

      I have a friend who is a fellow new grad PA, and she is considering a 2-year residency program in psych. She has a passion for psychiatry and could see herself making big differences there, however she is worried that she may begin to forget general medicine if she only works in psych for 2 or 3 years. Her other passion is ortho surgery (and other general surgery). She has also considered pediatrics and inpatient neonatal as other close-2nd choices.
      So, I'm wondering if anyone has had to decide between two fairly distinct specialties or switched between the two, years down the road. In particular has anyone here gone from a psych residency program to another specialty (or moonlighted / floated elsewhere)... or any other residency program to something else?
      In general, how difficult is it to find a general medicine or even surgery job after working only in psych for a while?

      Hey folks,
      I've been working in emergency medicine for about 1 year in a setting with a good mixture of high acuity and fastrack patients at a teaching institution. I've also worked during this time per diem at a low volume urgent care. While this has been an outstanding first job in terms of resume building and learning, it of course has the downside of wild hours, nights, weekends, holidays, etc. at a rather noncompetitive hourly rate/salary. I don't hate the job, but I also don't see myself doing emergency medicine forever. Or at least...not at this salary.
      For those who started in emergency medicine, what are your thoughts on transitioning to an urgent care job? I have heard some describe a miserable existence of patient volumes upwards of 60 patients a day, but I am guessing this is very dependent on the institution. Are there other specialties that make for a natural transition from emergency medicine? Am keeping all my options open at this point. Thanks!
