  2. I appreciate your view about PAs in the short time it was. I’m a second year PA student and I definitely didn’t become a PA because I wanted a doctor roll. I love the teamwork aspect and I did not want to be the top person. I’m fine with having a SP above me (although of course they just have to be able to be contacted by phone, not physically there all the time). I start clinicals end of August and I’m nervous but excited.

  3. How do you survive financially ? I’m in college still and I am struggling to keep afloat. Also, I’m nervous for med school, not being able to afford anything in that time period.

  4. I feel that I am going to end up doing some form of specialized peds. I really like the idea of EM and its procedures, shift work, but I like to build long term relationships w/ my patients. I do like procedures though… Choosing is difficult!

  5. Hey dr. Jamie. I’m Tanya , am doing my medicine graduation from Kyiv !
    Could you please tell us about usmle , and is it possible to move to the us while studying mbbs and getting a transfer to a college in the USA 🇺🇸.. ?
    Please help.

  6. Ok, let me just put this out there for anyone who wants to further entertain the notion that PA/NP/nurses are basically like MD and can do basically the same thing. It takes 2 years of school to get a nursing title. It takes an extra year to get the NP, for a total of 3 years. PA's also only get 2 years of schooling/training before they're certified. MDs on the other hand, goes through 4 years of med school training, plus at least 3 years of residency training (more if you're not doing IM or family med), for a miminum of 7 years of training. There's a reason everyone else need MD sign off. Sure they can take care of your everyday running nose or a cold or otitis externa, but when shit hits the fence and let's say your kid has a malignant otitis externa you're just lying to yourself if you say you would like a lesser experienced and lesser qualified medical professional to deal with your kid's medical needs.

  7. At your hospital, do PAs work in all types of emergent cases? At a hospital I shadowed, the PA/NP only worked in the fast track acute care setting, while attendings and residents covered the acute care, emergency room, and trauma center area.

  8. I just wanted to mention (not because of anything Jamie said) but NPs can prescribe meds without a doctor signing off, while a PA must have an MD/DO sign off. Just wanted to throw that out there, both are great and respectable professions, but that’s the biggest difference between the two (in practice)!😊

  9. And one more thing, Fyi the usmle fees for IMG’s are different and more expensive, going from 940 for Step 1 and 2 ck and 1290 for cs

  10. I don’t know if you have answered already, but i’d like you to recommend some podcasts, i’m sure they would be very interesting

  11. Can you plzzz do a video explaining clerkship rotations???? Can i do a rotation in like neurosurgery if the university hospital for my med school doesnt have a neurosurgical department? Can i apply to plastics or some other specialty if i never rotated for that Clerkship???? I feel like nooo one has ever made a video explaining that.
