  1. Thanks everyone for the input. To update, I received another offer from a derm in northern VA for $85,000 for first 3 months, $90,000 after that. Benefits include health insurance (paid 50/50 by employer/employee), 2 weeks vacation, 10 sick days, CME approved by doctor, and 15% bonus after 350,000 in collections.
  2. I recently tried to log some CME and could not find a clear answer on the following: I completed a "self-assessment" JAAPA quiz/article, which counts for 1 credit of category 1 CME. I logged it under general, because I was unable to log it under self-assessment, since the drop down categories did not have anything under the AAPA/JAAPA. I wanted to clarify that journal articles should be logged as general category 1... It seems this should be simpler to figure out...
  3. Hi, I am a new graduate in the northern VA/MD area (DC suburbs) and completed a 4 week derm rotation during clinicals. I received an offer recently and want to see how it compares to other derm PAs, and what I should negotiate for... Based on the recent AAPA salary report, a PA with 0-1 years of experience makes $90,000 in the 75% and $100,000 in the 90%, not including bonus. I would expect this area to make in 90% since it serves several of the "richest counties in the U.S." 78,000 base salary, reassessed after 5 months and again at one year (will shadow for first ~3 months) 5 days per week, 9-5 Bonus- 20% after 300,000 generated eligibility for health insurance after 3 months $3000 CME annually License fees paid $50 tax free cell phone/month 3 week paid vacation--- including sick/vacation/CME Noncompete for 2 years after employment of 5 mile radius Payment of your employer taxes and malpractice insurance premiums by the practice. To compare, I recently got offered a family med offer also, paying $78,000 for first 3 months, then $80,000 with $2,000 CME, 3 weeks vacation, 1 week CME, 6 days sick leave, employer contributed health insurance, and covered dental insurance... I know the salary is low, based on the area, even if I am shadowing/training for first few months. What should I renegotiate? I really want to work in dermatology and know that I need the experience to break into the field.
  4. Hi, I will be interviewing for a few dermatology PA jobs in the Northern VA area and want to be prepared should they ask what my salary requirements are. Based on the 2013 AAPA salary report, Derm PA's make $85,000 (50th%) and 4100,750 (75%) for base salary only and $117,000 (50th) and 149,250 (75%) for base salary plus bonus, in the entire U.S. What should my salary requirements/range be? I have no idea what to ask for, especially since I am a new grad with my only derm experience being a 4 week rotation. Thanks
  5. Awesome! I haven't heard anything yet. I've called a few times but they haven't given me any information whatsoever about the waiting list.
