  1. Hi everyone! 3 years in Derm. Right now : 1. Part time pay $57.50 an hour no benefits except 401k he’s putting in 3%. Only PA in solo practice. One time bonus in December of $1,500. Pays for all CME activities no cap, but does not pay accommodations or other expenses. 2. Work 20-25 hours a week. I tally about 60 patients a week and sometimes less. 3. I Do some cosmetics 4. I was offered productivity based salary at first, had no Derm experience but I declined because I was brand new to practice. Worked IM 3 years before starting. offered same base salary : part time hourly $57.50 productivity: net Collections first year 3%, 2nd year 4% and 3rd year 5% above 200k. Reports quarterly but collected and calculated from Whole practice 30% in cosmetic procedures Same benefits as above Any thoughts?
  2. Hi all, this was taken from the AAPA web site: AAPA and SDPA Respond to AAD Initiative with Restrictive Requirements The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recently announced the DermCare Team. While this new program has a commendable premise of inclusion of all team members, AAPA and the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) oppose the program’s restrictive attestation requirement and have written a letter outlining their concerns to the AAD President and DermCare Team Implementation Workgroup. The attestation requires DermCare Teams to adhere to AAD’s “Position Statement on The Practice of Dermatology: Protecting and Preserving Patient Safety and Quality Care.” This policy, which requires dermatologists to provide “direct, on-site supervision,” is far more restrictive than state PA practice acts and does not reflect recent advances in team collaboration. The letter calls for the DermCare Team program and AAD to either drop the attestation requirement or update the policy to reflect the present and future model of PA-physician collaboration. If there is no change, AAPA and SDPA will actively discourage PAs and their physician colleagues from signing up and participating in AAD’s DermCare Team program. Read the full AAPA and SDPA letter or, for more information on this issue, please contact Ann Davis, MS, PA-C, vice president of constituent organization outreach and advocacy. - See more at: https://www.aapa.org/twocolumn.aspx?id=2147485047#sthash.NWxlWNKv.dpuf. I think its ridiculous. just wanted to know what you guys think. Also, I brought it up to my SP and he seemed ambivalent to my surprise. He seems to agree with above in some ways. I am new to the practice and I still consider myself a new grad. even though I have been practicing for less than 2 years. I am also his first PA. what pointers can I discuss with my SP? he seems open to discussing my concerns.
  3. If you are a member of the AAPA they have a sample resume on PDF. I got it from their career companion guide. You can also google it under images and you will be able to find something.
  4. My school offers international rotations through child family health international. they offer rotations in Bolivia, Ecuador, India, Mexico and South Africa. One of the upper year students went to Bolivia and they loved the experience. I know other students who went to south africa and said they had alot of fun.

  9. I received that email as well and put on "standby". Good Luck and let us know if you are accepted!
  10. Hello there! As far as your research countng as HCE I'm not really sure. Contact the program you are intrested directly and double check with them. The Cheapest school I have knowledge of is Stony Brook University. It is a state school in New York City and it is one of the best nationally. Currently, in state tuition for a New York State resident is around $22,400 and out of state is $33,200. Some schools can charge on average $70,000 for a MS degree. Explore your options! Go to open houses if you can and get a feel for their programs! Good Luck!
  11. I also received a call for an interview invitation. I will be going on Saturday Jan. 8 and I'm going to drive from Rockland County. I'll be at the comfort Inn!! This is my second time interviewing with them! I hope to see everyone there! Good Luck...
