  • Don’t Wait, Self Initiate

    Cheesy title, I know, but I thought it was appropriate for the lessons learned last week. I’m still in the orientation phase primarily because I do not have hospital privileges or malpractice insurance. I do have a temporary license!!! Can I get an ''Amen?'' For all the new grads and old grads, you remember the feeling. As soon as you got ...

  • PA-C Honeymoon Over

    As I enter the 3rd week on the job, my nerves are starting to settle, and I'm starting to feel acclimated. Still no temporary license (fingers crossed …hopefully this week!) and thus unable to see patients in the clinic or assist in surgery.

  • Reaching for Medical Information: ReachMD on XM Radio

    No matter what I do, I seem like I'm always on the run. Balancing work, teaching, writing, running to my daughter's softball games, working out and tackling the long laundry list of daily activities provides little time for anything else. Finding a few minutes to refresh my knowledge of a medical topic is a difficult task. Or it was, until ...
  • On the Way to AAPA

    This weekend, several of my classmates and I are making the trip down to Atlanta, Geor., for the start of the AAPA's 38th Annual PA Conference. As Saturday approaches, I'm finding myself more and more excited to have the opportunity to get out of the classroom and learn about so many different and interesting topics from a variety of knowledgeable ...

Researchers at the Duke University PA program studied the job choices of PAs from 1997 to 2006 and found that the number of PAs going into primary care declined to 41% ...
