  2. Full disclosure: it’s been more than a few years since I worked in dermatology, still, this sounds like a good offer to me. I would want to know how much access you will have to the financial reports. You will have a year to establish your patient panel. Will you be doing medical, cosmetics or both? What is the insurance base (will you be seeing only pts w state/federal insurances or those w private insurance too?) Will you have MA support? Are there any PAs or NPs at the practice now? Have you spoken w them - or tried to connect via Linked In? I my might try to negotiate for 35-40% after year 1. Are you a member of SDPA? If not, you might consider joining or at least look into some great articles written by a few of their members re: negotiating a Derm PA contract. I believe AAPA also has 1 or 2 of their articles on their Career site. https://www.dermpa.org/ Good luck!
  3. Are you replacing a PA? What will your typical schedule look like as in how many patients will you see? If you bring in 500K (which is pretty easy to do in derm from what I understand) then you'll be making 150K. You can always try increasing the % to 33, or maybe 40-50 after 500K. Granted I don't know what's typical in derm, just a thought. The number is likely based on collections, not amount billed. That is pretty damn good for 32 hours / 4 days a week. If you wanted to supplement your income you can do part time somewhere else. Also, for CME make sure you get a specific dollar amount and if you get any additional days for CME. Typical CME is 2-3K and a week.

  23. No need to post this twice. Bottom line is your major doesn't matter as long as you have all the pre-reqs required for PA applications. Consider, though, that you need patient care experience. You may not get into PA school right away...what will you DO with a major in African studies? Always good to have a back up plan.
  24. If anyone is willing to check out my second draft, I would appreciate it so much! Just PM me and I will send it your way. Also, for those who need feedback, I am completely willing to swap. Feel free to send me any drafts you have!
  25. Miami It just looks like they keep on interviewing which is very frustrating lol it makes us feel like the waitlist has no worth
  26. Ok so my college transcript is a mess. I have a lot of W grades but most of them were the result of mental health issues and career indecision (I know that doesn't make them any better). Most of the W grades were whole semester drops. There are only two W grades that were not part of whole semester drops that I think are major red flags. One is for college algebra and trigonometry and the other is for general chemistry II. I was experiencing depression at the time of both of those drops but I was struggling with the material as well. I retook college algebra and trigonometry and got a B. I'm still yet to retake general chemistry II. When I dropped general chemistry II, I was depressed and overwhelmed by the lab but I think I can manage it next semester because my mental health has improved. My science grades are mediocre: C in General Biology I, B in General Biology I lab, B- in General Biology II, B in General Biology II lab, B+ in General Chemistry I, B + in General Chemistry I lab, and my Anatomy and Physiology I grade is upcoming and should be in the B range (maybe A- if I ace the final). My college history is definitely erratic. I started after high school in 2009 majoring in business, left because of depression and pursued an acting career, came back here and there taking core classes and acting classes part time with my major still business (really stupid), and finally got serious in 2017 when I officially switched my major to biology and was able to handle full class loads for consecutive semesters. I'm currently at a junior standing with 78 credits. My overall GPA is 3.3. I want to switch my major to African Studies because I genuinely like it but will that look bad? Is my transcript too fvcked up already to even apply to PA school? Can volunteer experience, better grades from now on, letters of recommendation, and a solid personal statement make up for it?
