Our program is starting rotations soon and we are using standardized end of rotation exams though the PAEA.  What are the best books to use to prepare for these exams or any end of rotation exam? 

Thanks in advance!

I used Pearls and Rosh. Found the PAEA exams to be pretty similar to rosh questions. It's nice to look at the PAEA EOR exam blueprint, but I wouldn't go crazy over it. I always keep a pocket book or two with me on rotation as well. It's more about learning bit by bit as you go. It can be tricky because you'll learn "real world" medicine but you also need to keep on top of "textbook" medicine. Those worlds don't always align. Also, keep in mind the relative % of questions. 

You'll find you'll get comfortable with what patient population comes through the door at your particular rotation, but don't forget to look up the stuff that doesn't show up on your rotation.

      Hello! I am currently still in the didactic phase of PA school in New Orleans but I will be starting rotations next May. My goal is to work in Houston after PA school, so because of this I would like to do my preceptorship there! The problem is that I do not have any contacts in Houston (except for my significant other who is a CPA). 
      My preferred specialty is trauma surgery, but I am also interested in ED, general surgery, cardio-thoracic, or plastics. If anyone knows who I can get in contact with about doing my preceptorship in Houston or the surrounding area it would be forever appreciated!!!!! 
      my email is sydney737@hotmail.com, or you can reply to this thread.

      If anyone is willing to undertake a student for an out-of-state rotation this fall for family/peds/ob-gyn/plastics, any information or leads would be highly appreciated! I am currently at Barry University in Miami but am a NYC native and am looking to start making connections in the community as I will be making my return there upon my graduation. This would be for fall 2018. Thank you in advance!

      Current or previous students, what kinds of activities or other things did you do between studying.
      I know there will be endless material to study, but breaks will be essential to stay sane. Any tips or suggestions for splitting up long study sessions? What worked best for you?
