  1. I see what you mean, but on my general surgery rotation the PAs would do bariatric, breast, colorectal, general, trauma and vascular surgery.

Anyone have any tips of how to study up, or even get more comfortable once starting? I have a little over
  4. 2021 update, new grad here-- fixed new grad starting salary is $108,000 plus benefits (4 weeks PTO after a year, $1000 CME allowance, etc) per the HR associate I'm working with. I didn't try to negotiate, not sure if that was a mistake but that sounded quite fair especially for a position I'm actually interested in
