    Pros

    Amazing providers to work with. Great way to learn new medical terminology

    Cons

    Sometimes it got repetitive, the day to day could vary and you can only see one patient per hour.

    Pros

    same comments as above. they establish a positive view of PAs as well as provided pathways to challenge their development

    Cons

    I really do not have any crucial con's. I would suggest increasing the production compensation more since there can be a wide variance among very experienced/skilled and lesser so PAs

    Great Company to work for if you want a career in medicine

    Pros

    Great experience for pursuing a career in medicine. Does not get any better than ER scribe training. The doctors are great and are very knowledgable

    Cons

    The only thing that could change would be better pay for the scribe position. Working 8 hours for $10/hour can be painful, but the experience gained and resume builder greatly outweighs the pay.

    One of the best PA jobs in CA, but not without serious local issues.

    Pros

    Working with some great docs who are dedicated to their patients and to the practice of medicine. They love teaching, and don't mind being interrupted by the PA for patient-specific consultations. Excellent pay and benefits. Excellent CME opportunities.

    Cons

    Many of the physicians stress "patients-per-hour" over quality of care. They instruct the PA to do only the minimum level of care required, regardless of patient comfort or satisfaction. They admonish a PA that asks too many questions. While the docs follow a progressive work schedule based upon "physician wellness", the schedule for PAs is brutal, alternating nights/days in the same 5-day period, with the PAs working the most unpleasant shifts, mostly weekends. You may end up with 6 - 8 different supervising physicians in one shift, each with their own quirks and biases and attitudes. Very difficult to navigate through these strong personalities.

    Benefit package and CME reimbursement are handled by Corporate in Oakland. Everything else is handled by the local Medical Director including hiring/firing, pay, scheduling, and job-performance evaluation. The excellent CME reimbursement is worthless if the local MD won't give you time off to attend it. The key is to have a good rapport with the local Medical Director. This is not always possible, and if you are terminated or receive a bad performance evaluation at one CEP site will not be hired at another CEP site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best job for PAs in CA could be even better if scheduling were more humane, and Oakland made performance expectations more uniform across all the sites.

    Pros

    Good entry level position but not support. Best CME compensation compared to the other ER contractors.

    Cons

    Some of the worst attending Physicians I've ever worked with. Constant pressure to turn patients over even if clinically questionable. Constant pressure to see more patients. God help you if you are a MLP

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your MLP's with a piece of the pie instead of lip service.
