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!
Is the Northeast Pre-PA Conference legitimate? If it is, could anyone verify if it's safe to pay through the following eventbrite link:
I'm honestly just clueless about conferences in general. This would be my first Pre-PA conference and I want to make sure it's a reputable conference and that it is safe to purchase tickets through the above link. If there is an actual event elsewhere, please inform me!
Thank you all in advance!
I have released a smartphone app designed to help read and interpret EKG's. The app can be useful for current students, new grads, and those with experience. The app requires the user to evaluate each component of the ekg, thereby minimizing missing important findings and also correlates abnormal findings to potential underlying disorders. The website is www.ekgddx.com. On iTunes, search "ekg ddx". On Google Play, "ekgddx". Thanks for considering.

I wanted to share a conference that I'm helping plan in January 2020: Pediatric Sports Medicine Conference: Managing Pain in Your Young Athletes After Injuries. I attended last year and really enjoyed the content. It sold out last year, so if you're interested in attending, be sure to register before the end of Dec.
UCSF Benioff Sports Medicine faculty will present evidence-based management of acute and chronic pain, including the roles of ice, splints and braces, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and physical therapy.
By the end of this conference, participants will be able to:
Recognize the early signs and symptoms of pain amplification syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome that could occur after injury
Apply appropriate pain management strategies for young athletes, including ice and other modalities, pain medication, cognitive behavioral therapy, and physical therapy
Discuss the red ‑ flags of pediatric musculoskeletal injuries, including when to get X-rays and when to refer
Describe the proper prescription and fitting of upper- and lower extremity splints, including their duration of use depending on injury diagnosis
Explain the steps needed for proper evaluation and management of concussions to avoid persistent post-concussion symptoms, including chronic headache pain
Identify rheumatological causes of joint and back pain in pediatric patients
