  1. Here are the details of my offer. There really wasn’t much to it and I have no idea where to start with negotiations and what I need to bring up.

  2. Hi there! I am a new graduate that recently accepted a general surgery job from a local metro hospital. I will have the opportunity to perform a lot of procedures and with time a lot of autonomy. I am excited, but I am also aware of all that I don't know and still have a lot to learn. Is there any advice or textbooks any of you could give? I was a scrub tech for years before attending PA school, so the OR life is like home to me.
  3. So I have graduation coming up soon, and have recently been offered a job in general surgery. I'm in a state that does not have the best median salary for PA's. The offer is 80k for first 6 months, then 85k for next 6 months, then 90k after 1 year. After 6 months I can begin to collect a bonus of 1% of my supervising physician's net collections which is paid out quarterly. I should also add that they've agreed to pay me a monthly stipend of $1,000/month until graduation, which would total $5,000. They are offering full benefits, $1500 + 1 week off for CMEs, & 10 vacation days (will go
  4. What are some of the procedures that PAs do on a regular basis in General Surgery. Just to clarify I am not talking about first assist but actually doing the entire procedure.
  5. Hello! I am a new grad looking for work in Eastern Kentucky. After a rotation with a surgeon, I was offered a job this December and am now graduating. He is the only practicing surgeon in our county and is looking to hire a midlevel to help lighten the load- he and staff have never had a PA/NP before. He sees my first year or two as a learning experience and expects to work closely with me; I will have 3 days a week in the clinic and 2 surgery days. He said he expects to treat me as a resident during this time. He would like to split call between us equally. A large company owns our hospital
  6. Howdy, Looking for Navy PA's with experience (preferably recent) serving with 2nd Marine Division. Getting assigned there after school & I have a few questions. Hit me up via PM, please. Thanks.
  7. Hello everyone. I am a a PA student on the last 2 months of PA school. I am taking my PANCE June 3rd! I am wondering what some of your experiences have been right out of school. In December I was dead set on going to a Surgical Residency program if I got accepted, however, since then I am on the fence. I applied for jobs in the area just in case and got a job offer for exactly what I want to do, General surgery covering several different specialties including thoracic, vascular, plastics, etc. I said yes to the job, and because it is "At will" there was no contract to sign. That was abou
  8. Hey! Are there any PAs (particularly Family Practice or General Surgery) in the Sacramento to San Francisco Bay Area that will allow me to shadow them? I'm trying to keep myself constantly immersed in the work of a PA so I would be truly grateful for the opportunity. Please contact me at mjrdiaz@ucdavis.edu for any questions! Thanks, Mark D.
