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.
Hi everyone, Someone, somewhere on this forum said this... You can have 2 out of the 3. Dream job(speciality), dream salary and dream location. I am a new grad with an offer in derm, good salary, but the location is rural... I love derm and it’s what I’ve always wanted to go into, but I don’t think I will be happy in a rural area. I also have an offer in family med in a bigger city which I can see myself living in. I love family med as well and I believe it will make me a well-rounded provider. As a new grad, I know it is recommended to start in FM. I don’t know if I am making the right decision walking away from the derm opportunity in the small town. I guess my question is, do you think there will be other derm opportunities in the future? How did you pick your first job? What is your advice and what would you have done differently? Thank you so much.
