CTSPA Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 Hello everybody Im finishing PA school this month and taking my boards in ocotober. Currently im on my last clinical rotation with an internal medicine doctor - pulmonary ,critical care and sleep medicine. He gave me a really good offer that cant be turned down for a new graduate. He also wants me to start right away after i get my license. I will be full time in his outpatient clinic by myself M-F no call with half day block for him everyweek to sign some of the charts and see some patients , he will be taking care of inpatients mainly between two hospitals ( 60 patients/day avg with procedures) and the hospital is across the street from the clinic, the other one is 15 minutes away. the thing is Im the first PA he will ever hire and his manager doesnt know the paperwork needed to be done so i have to do everything basically. I did some research and i found that i must have the following : 1-of course i will get my license - he paid for the exam and the license fee 2- DSA which i found copies on aapa and other websites- he will fill it up and sign it and will be kept on site 3- He will provide me malpractice with tail 4- DEA# which i wont be able to get at least a month after i graduate ( is it legal to use his DEA till i get mine??)He is paying for it Am i missing anything else?? The other thing that i havent found online at all is : He wants to bill under his name - the question is : with all types of insurances in general is it legal that i see the patients and his biller bills under his name without him seeing them? Remember im gona be signing all the charts/his signature will be on 5% of them only. Im talking about established and new consults!! Also for the PAs who work in the same setting - i would appreciate it if you guys gimme advice on anything that will help me. Since im gona be the first PA , it is my responsibility to make sure everything is done right and by the book Thanks alot for your help Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
