    More teaching for residents and less hours and call would be great. Less busy work a more education is best for medicine

    I worked at University of Nevada, Reno

    Pros

    Acting as a graduate assistant at UNR is a good job to have as a graduate student, as it typically includes a tuition waiver, which greatly reduces costs to the student. If you are a classified staff rather than a student, you can also get two free college and graduate level classes per semester.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the University is experiencing increasingly large budget cuts, and the graduate students are some of the first to be effected. In many departments, there are no guarantees in graduate assistant funding from semester-to-semester. GA's in the liberal arts and humanities are considerably disadvantaged in pay compared to those in harder sciences or engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't accept more graduate students if you can't afford to pay the ones you have, no matter how much you want to grow your department!
