  1. I want to thank you all again for your great advice. I just wanted to update everyone and anyone that reads this post in the future. I ended up getting a derm job in a big city! Out of all my job offers, it was the first and only one where I felt excited about it! My advice to anyone in the future is to just be patient. If it's meant to be, it will be. And new opportunities show up almost every day! If you don't feel good about a position, don't take it. I reminded myself that I worked hard all these years and that I should be happy about my job. I knew myself and I knew I wouldn't be happy in a rural area(even if it was temporarily) and I would feel bad taking a job with a plan to leave in a year. Be patient and don't settle! Thanks again to everyone for your help!
  2. I thought about going with the rural derm opportunity, but I would feel guilty leaving after getting the experience when the doc has invested his time in me... I want to do the right thing He said that the last few people stayed for a year and then left for a bigger city... they are kind people(doc and his wife) and I don't think I have it in me to get trained and then leave
  3. Thank you all so much! I really appreciate everyone taking the time to give advice! It definitely meant a lot to me.
  4. Hi everyone, Someone, somewhere on this forum said this... You can have 2 out of the 3. Dream job(speciality), dream salary and dream location. I am a new grad with an offer in derm, good salary, but the location is rural... I love derm and it’s what I’ve always wanted to go into, but I don’t think I will be happy in a rural area. I also have an offer in family med in a bigger city which I can see myself living in. I love family med as well and I believe it will make me a well-rounded provider. As a new grad, I know it is recommended to start in FM. I don’t know if I am making the right decision walking away from the derm opportunity in the small town. I guess my question is, do you think there will be other derm opportunities in the future? How did you pick your first job? What is your advice and what would you have done differently? Thank you so much.
