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!)

Hi, welcome to GI. A lot of the learning happens on the job so you'll probably be fine without having to read a ton.

The Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review book was helpful and gives you basic information for general GI/liver diseases.

I would also encourage going through official clinical guidelines from ACG because it tells you exactly what you need to know for practice. Key things are pancreatitis, GI bleeding, IBD, IB/functional, and CRC.

Hi there,

Thank you kindly for taking the time to respond! I appreciate the book recommendation & link! Will definitely have to check out.

For others reading- the clinicians I work with recommended Primo Gastro as well. It's fairly straightforward.

Thanks!

      I have a prior MS in Exercise Physiology (research emphasis) and then completed a dual degree PA program getting a MS in Management w/ the School of Business before starting the MMS for PA. The extra degrees will certainly be resume builders, but how much should I expect to use them for negotiating starting salaries? Should I expect a higher starting offer due to them or is that naive? Starting to have discussions with some practices and was hoping to get some ideas on the value those provide before it moves towards contract talks. I don't want to sell myself short, but don't want to come off as pompous and overvalue myself either! 
      I would be interested in either Ortho/Sports Med or Cardiology  
      Looking in NC. Currently in Winston-Salem, NC at Wake Forest University
      Appreciate the insight anyone can provide!

      Hello all,
      First time posting here. I am currently a PA-S2 with an expected graduation date of July 2020. I’m unsure about my career after graduating from PA School, and was wondering about any benefits that may come with joining the military after I become certified. Any and all information regarding life/work in specific branches is greatly appreciated as I have no information on the topic as of now.
      Thank you!

      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).
