  2. Hi everyone, I have posted this elsewhere, but also wanted some other advice. Can someone help me analyze this offer. Dermatology position as a new grad. Practice thats in the NYC area (several offices in different locations in the NYC and the surrounding area). There is a 6-8 month training program/residency that seems very structured - one day a week is didactic, the rest is clinical work in the private practice and also one day a week at a free clinic. Tests and quizzes weekly along with a comprehensive exam. Guaranteed a position once the training program is completed, but can be ANY

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I'm just concerned because it's hard to get a dermatology position in NYC - and i've seen similar offers where people even offer to pay you nothing. I am not too concerned about the training program because I know it's structured well and I'd sacrifice a pay cut for that because I value having a good foundation before moving on to another job. Doing my preliminary job search at the moment, every place is looking for at least one year experience (most asking for 2-3 years). I am most concerned about the time frame and will ask for a two year contract. If I

    Hello, Can someone help me analyze this offer. Dermatology position as a new grad. Practice thats in the NYC area (several offices in different locations in the NYC and the surrounding area).

  6. Hello, I was wondering what the starting salary is (average) for a new grad in dermatology with prior experience (not as a PA, but as an MA - so, familiarity with dermatology). I know NYC is a saturated market, so I was wondering what would be considered a fair offer. Thank you.
  7. @JGNYC I took the remainder of my post-bacc classes at Hunter as a non-degree student. It's pretty straightforward and not difficult to get As. The only problem I have with Hunter is that if you were a non-degree seeking student and not in the post-bacc program (like myself), it could be difficult getting into classes. I ended up getting into all the classes that I needed to, but it was very stressful because I had to keep checking the system and waiting until someone dropped out of the class because of my late registration times. If you have any additional questions, I can try and help.

  10. I'm actually going to be turning it down as I've just accepted a spot somewhere else. I hope this opens an opportunity for someone else!
  11. I just got accepted into the program!!!! Can anyone help me with housing options???
  12. I am not using my application package as something to be checked off as done. I believe that my interviews were my problem and I have been working on that throughout this past year. However, I don't think this is something that can necessarily be addressed in a PS, but something that is shown on my interviews if I receive invites again. There have been some minor changes since interviewing last cycle -- new job (although I already had 4,000 HCE), more shadowing of PAs (which I will incorporate into my PS), and a genetics course. But I don't see any of these as being the real issue to begin
