Question special

So for this session, I want to focus on this essential transition for a couple of days. I know I have "skipped" the residency and fellowship/post-doc transition; however, those were discussed extensively in some of the earlier forums. Thus, I would like to talk about negotiating ones first contract as a junior faculty. I know this can vary for the specialty one wishes to enter, but I would like to hear general advice you've experienced or heard about negotiation. Finally, for those not in the "traditional" p-s route (i.e. industry or government), what insights can you offer for negotiating in a world physicians may not be as comfortable with?
