Greetings, I apologize if this is has been addressed elsewhere, but I have not seen the post if it has. I am a MS3 and will most likely go into radiology. I am from a small state where it is hard to recruit some specialties. In response to this a number of hospitals in the area will offer medical students contracts prior to even beginning residency training. Typically they pay an additional stipend during residency and will pay some amount of student loans, in return, students make a 3-5 year commitment to the hospital. I am interested in returning to the area and would consider signing such a contract. However, I am wondering if by signing such a contract I am selling myself short in the long run. Since I am committed, would the hospital low-ball my salary or other benefits? Does anyone have any experience with these types of agreements? Thanks.
