TeddyRucpin Posted January 20 Share Posted January 20 (edited) Rotations have been a good experience to see what I am looking for in a future role as a PA. I am curious of your roles in the ER. For example, Are you running codes? As a follow up, are you involved with talking to families for end-of-life care or after someone dies? Are you running every case, no matter how low acuity/BS it may be, by an attending physician? Performing procedures such as RSI, placing chest tubes, etc? Able to staff higher acuity patients, like level 1s/2s? Do you need chart or medication cosignatures? So far, I have seen some EMPA roles at large and medium-sized academic medical center. For reference, I am interested in a residency and would like to work in a community hospital setting. To put it bluntly, I don't want to be in a "lifelong resident" position. TIA.
