My job search

so, I went to Danville VA this past weekend to look at a job there... I really liked it. The hospital was nice and I liked the town. It was much bigger than I anticipated and had all the things I need. It is a family friendly town as well and my wife liked it also. We'll see what happens... It doesn't hurt that VIR was 10 minutes away...

Re: My job search

Are you done with your residency and all that? I thought you were specialized in reconstructive / plastic surgery? Can't you get a job about anywhere you want?

I gave up on the plastics... it was going to take another 2-4 years after this one to get what I would have wanted. I'm going to be a general surgeon, which is what I had planned on in the beginning when I went to medical school in the first place. And yeah, there are jobs all over. My wife's and my families are all in this area so it makes sense for us to stay relatively local.

Re: My job search

/threadjack/ Man, being a surgeon is being in a very special niche. Very interesting line of work. A friend of mine years ago became a podiatrist and invited me to photograph a lower leg (4 ") bone transplant involving a diabetic (so he'd have a slide show for presentations). The surgeons, nurses, etc. were all telling jokes and singing throughout the entire surgery. My friend introduced me as Dr. Martin in the operating room. Just found the whole experience to be a bit outre. And holy chit, surgery is brutal!! /end threadjack/

That said, I'm glad to have people like you available when needed!

Re: My job search

General thorasic? A friend of mine is a thorasic surgeon, and I simply can't believe the things you guys can do these days, absolutley amazing.
The big plus on the plastics, though, is the cha-ching. Everything up front, no insurance or Medicare B.S. to deal with, no bill stiffage, don't have to be accredited with a hospital and take an E.R. money loss rotation, etc. Have to put up with more school and the costs associated, but can be a big payoff.
Good luck and props.

Re: My job search

Congrats T1. I've been through Danville a couple times, it really doesn't seem like a bad town. My job dilemma has finally come to an end as well, it's a great feeling

Re: My job search

Come to Canada! All of our best surgeons go to the States... we could use an extra one! The pay is poor and the conditions are bad but think of all the good you can do for society! And best part is you'll never run out of work with the multi-decade waiting lists for simple surgeries! Exclamation point!

And then there's this asshole...

Mainly general and laparoscopic surgery although some thoracic is possible.

Plastics is pretty good but in most situations you still have to take care of trauma patients and plenty of other not so wonderful problems. Can you say decubitus ulcers?

Anyway, this is now my 6th year of training after medical school so I'm getting a bit antsy to get out...

We had a kid point a shotgun at his face and pull the trigger in high school. He "lived".

No, but I can Google, and those images aren't the best lunchtime material.
I guess it comes with the territory, but do you ever really get used to fixing something like that? :barf:
I hear ya on getting antsy, but you have provided yourself and your family a good future thanks to those 6+ years.
