No tail coverage. Health insurance provided. Licensure fees, membership dues covered. I like both practices and need some feedback. I like staying busy, doing procedures and developing relationships with patients. I do no like the UC hours to include shift time, weekends and holidays - spouse works 9AM-5PM and want to have more time together. Derm location is closer to home, less charting, predictable schedule. I want to renegotiate the derm offer to match the hourly compensation of the UC offer - hoping to get at least $53/hr, ask for 20% rather than 5% annual bonus with a goal stipend of $2500. Any tips of advice of any sort would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  3. I'm considering becoming a PA and have always been interested in aesthetic dermatology. I was wondering how content PA's are with specializing in aesthetic dermatology and what kind of work hours there are. Another thing, are the work hours flexible? I'd love to start a family but not sure how much it will affect that. Thank you!

  5. I’m a PA with 12 years of experience in orthopedic surgery. I’m interested in making a change and getting into dermatology for a better lifestyle and a comparable salary. Ideally I’d like to get into a an aesthetics practice including fillers, Botox, laser treatments, etc. I live in south Florida and there is no shortage of this type of practice but everyone seems to want experience. I see that there are various training courses for this type of thing that can be anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks in length and are on the expensive side. I’m looking for advice on what training I can proactively do to make myself as marketable as possible for this type of job. Im also curious if my idea of cosmetic derm is actually an improvement over my current salary/situation in Florida. In my mind I will certainly take a pay cut in the beginning but will be earning more money than I make now on my second or subsequent years with a similar lifestyle. I currently make 120K and work M-F, no nights, no weekends. 22 days PTO (sick days and CME days come out of this) plus 7 holidays, no CME allowance but after you pay you can submit receipts and hope for reimbursement, licensure and certification fees reimbursed with receipt, no malpractice (sovereign immunity in existing job), 403-b with matching to a certain amount, partial healthcare coverage, and short term disability insurance. This was lengthy... I appreciate any advice or feedback. -K
  6. Any derm PA's out there who work at Kaiser, Sutter, CA Skin Institute, Berman, or other larger corporations? I'm working in private practice now and have a lot of flexibility with my schedule which is nice, but not the kind of benefits and salary I think I could potentially have at the other. Could you share your experience as far as schedule, salary and/or benefits? And, if you've worked both private and/or corporate, which do you prefer and why? Thank you!
  7. Hello everyone! I had recently posted about a derm offer, but I got another offer at a different practice/state and would love some thoughts on this one. Salary: 36 hour work week, Training salary for 4 months at a rate of 75K, and then 80K with bonus of 10% for collections exceeding 60K for a 3 month period that will be paid quarterly. Time off: 2 weeks PTO, 1 week of sick time, 2 days for CME and 2 personal days along with 7 paid holidays. Malpractice covered. 50% of tail coverage if I stay with practice for 2 years. CME: 1K Health insurance plan: 280/mo towards it 401K: allowed to enroll after 1 year Restrictive covenant for 7.5 miles State: Pennsylvania, outside philly Counters that I’m thinking: - I’m okay with the training period salary but will counter with 90K w/ 10% collections - 5 days for CME - Tail coverage required now - CME 2K - I need to get more info on the health insurance aspect. I really really like the Physician and she has a great plan for how to train/incorporate me into the practice. I feel like it would be a great opportunity but I also want to ensure I’m making the right decision realistically. I would love any input from you guys! Thank you!

  9. Hello All, I am graduating in July and am starting to look into contract negotiation and will take any advise I can get. I just completed a rotation in dermatology and got an "unofficial" job offer. I want to move forward with it and want to arm myself with the tools necessary to negotiate a contract. My first question is SALARY negotiation. Yes, I know this is a hard question to answer without knowing the other benefits. I really don't know much logistics with this particular practice, or really any as a matter of fact. Here is what I do know, its a private practice (1 of 20) that is owned by ONE physician- pretty impressive! I would be working with one other physician in this particular practice. I would be doing general & cosmetic dermatology. So, what would be a reasonable starting salary if there were no benefits offered? Any tips or advice would be so helpful. Thank you! :)
  10. Hello! I am going to be applying to PA schools and I am highly interested in derm. I know this is a long time away but I just want to learn more about certain specialties. I was looking at jobs for derm PAs on Indeed and some other websites and I noticed they need 1-3 years experience. Is there any way to graduate PA school and start working immediately for a dermatologist or do you need to work your way through another specialty and then apply for a PA derm position?
  11. I’m applying to PA school and in the mean time I have been interested in working as an esthetician while working as a CNA. I plan on going to esthetician school for a couple months bc I love skin care. I was wondering what it is like to own and run or even work at a medical spa. What are your days like? What kind of work do you do? Do your work with a doctor who owns most of the company or can you legally own your own company and hire a doctor as an independent contractor?
  12. I am having trouble with starting my personal statement. People keep telling me to start it off with an experience or anecdote to draw the readers in..There is not just ONE experience that sparked my dream of working in the medical field. I feel as though the various experiences I have had collectively have drawn me into the medical field. Here are a few topics I was thinking of starting my personal statement with..Please give me any feedback! (I am interested in specializing in dermatology, but by no means am I committed to this specialty!!) 1.) I currently work as a medical assistant in dermatology..maybe I could talk about some of the experiences I have had doing this such as surgery, dealing with patients, etc... 2.) My personal history of malignant melanoma, and how that led me to volunteer for the melanoma foundation, become a public speaker and tell my story to educate/raise awareness to young adults/teens...now I work as a derm medical assistant 3.) (Completely unrelated to derm) Worked in a nursing home and happened to be at the right place at the right time when a resident was having a stroke...(this was an experience to remember, but not my topic of choice) I would then discuss shadowing PAs and MDs and why I want to be a PA....bla bla bla Please let me know what you think! I am lost right now! I appreciate your help!
  13. This offer is for a position in a small single physician surgical dermatology private practice office in a highly affluent community outside of Los Angeles, CA. The physician is an experienced Moh's surgeon who deals almost exclusively in skin cancer, reconstruction, and cosmetics (no medical derm). She is offering a "training year" and I am seeking a "foot in the door" with dermatology. Let me preface this post by saying I know it's a pretty rough offer, but my hope is once developing a skill set within surgical dermatology. I'd hope to become an asset to the practice in order to negotiate a better deal or become more marketable to another derm practice that may give me a better offer. Salaried at $4800/month for the first 3 months, $5600/month for the next 3 months, and $6400/month for the next 6 months ($69,600 pretaxed). "On Call" weekends and holidays to field the occasional phone call. Hours are essentially "open to close" at the office usually between 10-12 hours a day mon-fri until i'm trained well enough to know when its ok to cut out early. Exempt employee status with no set breaks, lunch, or overtime compensation. Profit sharing 401k pension plan where the employer gives 7.5% of annual salary toward retirement with a vesting schedule that becomes completely matured after 6 years. So after 1 year, 0% vested, 2 years 20%, 3 years 40% vested, 4 years 60% vested, 5 years 80%, and 6 years 100%. CME money is limited to any actual amount. It’s approved on case by case basis and seems like ill rarely have much say in how it’s used. Malpractice is clams made without tail Health insurance is covered 50% after the first 3 months for the first year. Then 100% covered starting after the first year. PTO is 7 holidays where the office is closed anyways. 10 additional days will accrue over the first year, 11 the next year, 12 after that, and so on. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks!
  14. My original plan was/is to get an EMT certification this summer term and try to hop on with a hospital as an ER/ED Tech afterwards. I figured that'd be the ideal way to not only rack up the hours of HCE, but also be surrounded by loads of docs and PAs that I could potentially shadow and get letters of recommendation from. I also thought it'd be best since at the moment I prefer the idea of working in emergency medicine when I'm a PA. However, I've recently noticed that a dermatology medical surgical assistant position has become available at a local dermatology group near me with no prior experience or credentials required. The job listing claims they'll train you on the job. Should I continue with my original plan to get CPR + EMT certified and hop on with a hospital, or should I try my luck at that derm position?
