Greetings future PAs,
My name is Elizabeth and this is my second year applying to MEDEX with my first interview. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I'm unsure on how the Zoom interview will go and I want to reach out to anyone else that feels the same way. Id love to get get to know a few of you prior to the Zoom interview to feel a bit more comfortable. I look forward to meeting you all on 11/14, and hopefully one day in the classroom.
Hi, I am a third year pa student & graduate in May 2020 (3 more months!) I just got my first job offer, which also happens to be my dream job, and I’m very excited about it. I want to share the good news with family and friends on social media, but I want to do it tastefully and with proper etiquette. What is safe/not safe to say publicly?
So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
(Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)
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).
I went to a PA interview and afterwards I wanted to send a thank you card to the people that interviewed me. But I don’t think I am recalling their names correctly. I was nervous. So I emailed the coordinator who emailed me giving me the interview date, asking her their names. She is not responding to my email. Should I be concern? Is this reason enough to not accept me in the program?
