I'm a new grad starting out in ambulatory surgery-- I'm super excited because I love being hands on in the operating room. I was just wondering if any of the Surgical PAs could give some insights about ambulatory surgery? The site I'm going to be working at has 12 surgical subspecialities (list below). From what I gathered through the interview process, I'll be able to get experience in all of them. That being said I'm worried about being prepared and knowledgeable for cases. Anyone have any tips of how to study up, or even get more comfortable once starting? I have a little over a month before start date so any resources are welcome. Thanks in advance!
List of subspecialities/ topics to brush up on🤯🥴:
Head and neck surgery
Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery
Sports medicine surgery
Our private practice family medicine clinic is in the process of creating a position for a PA or NP which would participate in leadership meetings, help train new hires, help recruit new providers, attend community meetings, help update office policy, etc. I know some practices call positions like this "Head PA" or "Head APP", are there any other examples of titles for this type of position? We've used the title "Liaison" for this position before when the responsibility was really just attending leadership meetings within the office, but this seems too narrow for the rest of the proposed responsibilities.
