  1. Clinical Dermatology by Thomas Habif is a pretty good resource I refer from time to time when I see uncommon cases. I found Andrews way too wordy (although I do agree it is a great resource). Habif breaks down dx and tx. Also consider Fitzpatrick's color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology (there us a smaller version of the book). Both great resources. Best of luck and welcome to Derm ?
  2. Totally know that feeling Hope209. Started off working as a new grad in the ER in the Bay Area as well. I agree ER environment can be extremely toxic. Worked there for about a year and was so glad to leave. Tough learning as a new grad but the experience was gold. I knew ER wasn't for me long term and I got lucky enough to find a full-time gig in derm where I am LOVING everything about it. I dislike shift work (common in ER/UC specialty) and with derm, the hours are great and work life balance is attainable. Plus derm usually pays on the higher end which sweetens the deal ?. In regards to procedures in derm, they mostly consist of punch and shave bx, suturing, intralesional kenalog injx, cryotherapy, candida injx, electrodessication and curettage, and excisions if your SP is willing to train you. The big ticket item is MOHs surgery and if you get paired with a derm MOHs surgeon, it becomes a mix of some plastics/derm (wide defect repairs). We do lots of procedures daily but lacs, nail removals are not that common since those are usually seen in ER and UC settings. If you get into cosmetic derm, then theres a whole slew of other neat nifty procedures you can do. Hope this helps and best of luck!
  3. That offer sounds uh-may-zing! High base salary with great bonus structure. I currently work in hospital based dermatology in California where we see a ton of awesome and rare textbook cases most places will never see! We have our fair share of procedures and tons of excisions on a daily basis. That salary range sounds fairly spot on as well. You are going to love dermatology! Best of luck!
  4. @Sunada46 excellent reasons, I am on the fence between UMDNJ/Rutgers and SMU, but I am highly leaning towards SMU since it is so close to home and I have been told by countless of PAs and PA students that the program produces excellent and top notch PAs. Also, does anybody know when SMU will post their results for PANCE 2012? I know most programs already posted their results. Any info will be great. Thanks!
