Would like to know how outpatient clinic PAs are being compensated. Salaried, hourly or paid small fee per patient plus low hourly rate? The last form of payment appears to be popular with employers, would like to know if anyone is doing this and what is the consensus on this practice. Forgot to mention that with the pay per patient, all PA's are paid the same regardless of experience. Compensation is dependent of clinic visits, so your income will vary from day to day. Any thoughts on this?
