Not urgent care. I am going to try to bait others.....I think derm PA's have it great because its fun burning warts people are so happy when you make them look better they are always polite and treat you well. And, you don't have to work shifts. l;

22 year PA

I completely disagree with the Derm statement. It’s not always fun, patients are rude and downright nasty sometimes, not everyone is happy, and employers push you to see more and more patients.

That being said it is great because you never get bored, always challenging, surgical and cosmetics if you push yourself.

But really you should follow your passions. Commit to something you can really put yourself into. nothing is perfect and every specialty has pros and cons.

Best of luck

Just accepted an offer with a psych startup. Not exactly the offer I was hoping for as I’m taking a slight pay cut ($73/hr) and it’s a 1099 position. I keep getting stuck on the 1099 piece because I’ll be working 40 hrs/wk, but have been told I’m not eligible to be a W2 employee. Needless to say, no benefits whatsoever. They don’t even provide a computer or any other remote equipment for the completely remote position. Am I making a mistake? Also, can anyone chime in about being a 1099 employee?
