We just participated in our first "real job" contact. The OBGYN who delivered our 9 year old, Cougar, found out about Chad's fellowship match and has passed his name on to the children's hospital in our hometown. We found out they talked about Chad in a hospital board meeting!!!! Whooo Hoooo!!!
What's so crazy is that we don't know anything. We don't know what amount pediatric anesthesiologist make to know if any offer is good or not. No one really touches on that taboo income subject.
It's still over two years away, but they seemed to think this was the perfect time to start talking. I guess our short-term fate is set at this point: we know when he'll be done with residency, we know what fellowship he's doing and when he'll get done, so there's really nothing but time to wait on now.
How would you feel about returning to your hometown when all is said and done?
