hey guys, I am sure this has been done before, but can someone please compare the "typical" private versus academic job experience for a new grad. I have some idea about academic jobs since I have been exposed to these during training (I am thinking ~ 50% sign out weeks, remaining time for clinical research/ teaching, etc.) In a private group are you signing out everyday or most days? I believe some places ask you to take up CP directorships, etc. I realize every private job will be different and specific, but a general feel from someone on the inside will be helpful. Also, I have heard it often that a private job may not be a good place to start for a new grad. Do you guys agree? Besides the money factor- are there any pluses to a private job over an academic one? Sorry for all the naive sounding Qs and thank you for the time!
