  1. I definitely would not accept the offer as is. It's best to stick with a 1 year contract; you never know what the future might hold. Plus 89k is ridiculously low. I made more than that as a new grad 3 years ago. Back then, I was in urgent care, but still....From what I've read, psych is supposed to pay really well. And don't feel obligated to take the offer just because you work there part-time. They knew what the deal was since you first signed up. You could try negotiating, though they seem pretty inflexible. You could also try looking just outside of your target area. Where are you located?
  2. How did it end up going? Was it a good program/learning experience? Did it increase your job prospects and earning potential?
  3. Any new insights to be shared? On the VA or any other family medicine residencies?
  4. I went to the link you posted and searched "Physician Assistant" but did not get any results. I also searched through all 5 pages to see if it was worded differently, but all I found was "School Nurse." What is the specific job title I should be searching for?
  5. Were you able to convince them to give you OR time?
  6. Sorry, I don't know any career counselors. Try taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. It's a test that will tell you your specific personality type and often comes with recommendations for careers that would suit you. If your results include something about practicing medicine, you can look up recommendations for which specialties you might like based on your personality type. And it's alright to be lost. Once you do find your way, you'll appreciate it that much more. Best wishes!
  7. Now that you've been in IR for a few years, do you have any other suggestions for books or resources?
