  1. Thank you in advance. Hired in an urgent care and they would like me to train as soon as I can
  2. The training is pretty much shadowing/training I was told. I definitely dont know a lot as a new grad and would like training so I feel like this is fair.
  3. New grad offer urgent care near NYC (dream location and dream specialty) $40/hr training for 2 months + 1 month training 65/hr (sounds perfect to me) $65/hr full time 40 hr week malpractice full coverage NO paid time off however, 6 sick days 1wk unpaid time off (they said that they would be flexible if I needed a day here and there off additionally) all jewish holidays off (theres 10 of them, and im jewish) 3/6 legal holidays off NO HEALTH INSURANCE Licensing and DEA covered, CME will most likely be covered ----- The PTO was non negotia
  4. how is 40 an hour solid..? thats 77k assuming a standard work week... new grad pa's should start at like 85 minimum
  5. its 40/hr for 30/hr week. thats 57,600 a year... almost half of what a PA salary should be. doesn't seem bad? The place is also an hour away. but I do agree with your logic. I feel like even if I asked for 45/hr during training and got it, I would still be losing out majorly.. that would equal out 64,800/yr salary working only 30 hr a week
  6. I agree with your vision. He seemed like a nice guy but looks could be deceiving. I will keep it on the back burner I guess. and words of that high salary are just.. words without a contract aren't they
  7. low income area in one of the five boroughs (NY). the office is in a residential apartment complex w/ a tiny sign that says dermatology Doctor admitted this is purely derm, no cosmetics, lots of poor patients. "if you're looking to make the big bucks, it won't be here" 40/hr 30hr/week training for 6-8 months. "I follow doc wherever he goes, don't see any patients on my own until after" Upon asking what compensation would be like after the training period, he had to really think about it and couldn't give me a straight answer "anywhere from 75-100/hr" he "doesn't like to e
  8. Graduating Jan 1st, Currently on my derm rotation so ive picked up basics but obviously have a lot more to learn. I have read the warning threads so im feeling skeptical going in tomorrow because.. 1) I have heard from my current derm preceptor that she knows this job to have a relatively known PA turn over rate 2) the secretary for the doc I spoke with on phone says that there is a training period where I will be "scribe/follow" 3) the commute is an hour away I have heard that it is hard to get your foot in door with derm so I am going just incase... but
  9. I am feeling slightly down after finishing my rotation in SICU. My preceptor said Im a hard worker but I have a lot of learning to do. it almost sounded like I should have known more by my 7th rotation. I will admit, my rotations have all been shit and basically free labor and not so much learning. I will say upfront that i understand the learning curve is huge and I am not on the level of a seasoned ICU PA but I still feel embarrassed because I was on the verge of applying for a job at this ICU and the attending basically said I'm not ready. During PA School we were taught slim to nothin
  10. Hey everyone, I will be 24 years old when I graduate PA school and be ~130k in debt at rates 5-6% govt loans Ive approached my debt situation with conservative logic my whole pa student career.. thinking that I'd live at home and pay off the debt 30k/year at a time and live pretty comfortably and modest... but now as the days get closer I am starting to realize how mundane that sounds. hell, especially when my parents are now talking of moving out of the house to downscale (financial hardship). one of the big points of choosing pa over md for me was to establish my financial indepe
  11. http://imgur.com/a/dxfTk This is me. @adam_roze Second year PA Student here. If I could have a conversation with my pre-PA self, there are a TON of things I would have done differently to improve my chances of getting into school, study habits in school, and general mindset on western medicine, personal mistakes made, the roles of MDs, DOs, Nurses, AAs, and PAs. Although I have much to learn, I definitely can provide good insight. Feel free to follow me on Instagram: _adamroze and message me with questions about anything regarding PA student life questions posted on here
