Looking to find out more information regarding compensation in dermatology. What are your pay structures? I'm in Florida, working in dermatology 9 years and I only have a base salary (on the low end I think)

I don't know much about this. But my friend took a position in Oregon as a new grad. First year is 21% of collections and each yr goes up another %. Does your salary include any bonus structure?

Im in the southeast (not in fl though) with almost 5 years in derm (9 yrs total as a pa). I have a salary of125k (no production) with 5k yearly bonus and 1500 christmas bonus. I work 5 days a week 8-5. Im in negotiations soon myself. Other derm pas that i graduated with i know are making a ton more and working less, but i have no clue in my area what people are making. Everyone is so hush hush, and i think that hurts us all in the end. I brought in almost 900k to the practice last year. I know im worth a lot more. Hopefully this helps you.

Jesus, 900K to the practice and only being paid 130K. That's insanity, you NEED a production bonus. You should definitely be making 200K, probably closer to 300K.

Check the salary report, base it off that. COL makes a difference, but not when you're bringing in that much money. Low COL area also means the cost of business is a bit lower too such as cheaper rent. Also, rural areas often pay the highest, because it's difficult to fill the positions.

Is there an organization for derm PAs that tracks salary? I know there is one for ortho PAs. That may have better data. In the end, it may be easier to find a job willing to pay you what your worth rather than try to increase your pay at your current place. Use your collections data as leverage when negotiating a new job. The standard for a derm PA is to get a production bonus, and you don't have one.

Full-time dermatology PA salaries can range anywhere from $80,000 to $400,000 per year depending on the PA's collections to the practice. A full-time, experienced dermatology physician assistant can generate anywhere from $500,000 to $850,000 for their practice, per year.I have always felt so much connected to this industry since my graduation years. When I visited a seminar held in Denver, I met Mr. John who is a researcher. He has recently published a research paper (https://www.marketdecipher.com/report/home-healthcare-market) for his firm on this specific industry.
