      Hello everyone, on behalf of the CSOM PA Club, I'd like to invite you to attend our PA club hours hosted every Thursday at 12:30 PM via zoom. These 1-hour sessions are hosted by current PA students and we answer prospective students' questions about our journey into PA school, the CASPA application, pre-requisites, etc. It is an informal environment in which you can come ask all the questions you have and have a feel for what the future might look like for you. If interested, please fill out the attached form and email it back to us at csompaclub@gmail.com at the beginning of the week corresponding to the session you like to attend in order to confirm attendance and receive the meeting link. We look forward to seeing you there.

      Hey everyone,
      New grad PA here and I have a couple interviews with the department of surgery at Jersey City Medical Center. I was wondering if anyone has any insight into the work environment/culture and pay at this hospital or within the RWJ Barnabas health system as a whole. Thanks in advance!

      Hello all,
      Long time reader, first time posting. I recently secured a job at a vascular surgery practice working with 2 different surgeons. The job includes working in all clinical settings (OR, inpatient, ICU, and clinic), but I am especially excited to be in the OR. My start date is at the end of August so I will have some down time before my first day. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations as to how I can prepare so I can put my best foot forward when I start. Books, online material, videos etc. (I am open to anything really). I do understand that the first year, as a new graduate, can be tough especially starting off in a surgical specialty.
      Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

      Hello, 
      I am a relatively new neurosurgical PA in Las Vegas, NV. 
      Recently one of the hospital systems we cover (Valley Health System, UHS) here in Las Vegas informed me that in order to gain first assist privileges in their hospitals, I will be required to have a separate first assist certification. If I were to have gotten my privileges completed one month earlier, I would have just been grandfathered in. What confuses me most is that at a few of the hospitals, they are allowing me to have the first assist privileges until my next reappointment in over a year whereupon I will then need to have the certification then to continue having the privilege. At other hospitals within the same system they are not allowing me to have the privileges at all. 
      I have reached out to the AAPA and they drafted a letter to send to several people within the organization, but I have not heard of any response yet from anyone within the Valley Health System.
      Has anyone else every seen/heard anything like this before? In my opinion it does not make sense and downplays any surgical training we get during school or thereafter. 
      I appreciate any other thoughts, idea, or opinions.

      Hi all, 
      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🤯🥴: 
       
      Bariatric surgery
      Breast surgery
      Colorectal surgery
      General surgery
      Head and neck surgery
      Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery
      Neurosurgery
      Ophthalmologic surgery
      Orthopedic surgery
      Pediatric surgery
      Podiatric surgery
      Sports medicine surgery
      Urologic surgery
      Vascular surgery
