  1. Exactly my previous point.. don't accept this position with such pay. Did you spend $100-200K and all that time in school to make $35 an hour?
  2. Sounds like this physician wants to hire someone for $35/hr to do all their work. Terrible offer in my opinion unless this is something you specifically want to do. The pay is way too low, not enough PTO, you should always have CME money, fees should be covered by the employer, the list goes on.....
  3. @Lucy199 Can't say I've heard this.. wish I could find something on it.
  4. Can't comment on Cali, but for the Boston area I see offers in the 75-85 range on average. Absolutely not less than 70/hr, I make more than that in urgent care with benefits.
  5. Just to follow up on this.. Still testing approximately 20-30 people per day at my urgent care with IgG. The medical director set protocol as anyone without symptoms in the last 2 weeks can be tested. If I hadn't just started this job I'd be more inclined to not order it but... so yeah this is a waste of time and money.
  6. Thank you three for responding! I completely agree that because of its limitations, it's main use (for UC) seems like creating a $300-400 billed urgent care visit for no real answers...? I just wanted to see how others felt. This seems to sum it up pretty well. Still open to any other thoughts. The worst part about this personally is that when asymptomatic patients come in to be tested with IgG, I still have to do a full visit on them
  7. Hello, I'm an urgent care PA in Massachusetts. My workplace just got IgG availability and I'm honestly lost on its worth for the average patient. My medical director set the protocol as anyone without symptoms in the last 2 weeks are eligible. I'm looking for thoughts on this mass testing to rack up the bills versus testing certain situations? Thank you! *edited with current protocol.
  8. OP Literally mentioned pay for a major Boston-area hospital.. which pay better than outside the city. I work 45 away from Boston and should be making less or comparable pending the field.
  9. As a reference for yourself, I'm two years out of PA school making $72/hr in urgent care 45 mins out of Boston and I feel like I could definitely make more so don't sell yourself short!
  10. Hello all, Briefly, I'm looking at a new job's offer and it involves RVUs. This would be my first position with an RVU incentive. The incentive is calculated as followed.. / being divided by Total compensation ($60/hr x 40 x 52) /Conversion factor ($32.75 in urgent care) = 3,810 Target RVUs for the year .. 73 RVUs weekly After that it's excess RVUs x Conversion factor of $32.75 in urgent care as a bonus paid quarterly. Anybody know how many RVUs can be expected from an average urgent care PA daily.. or weekly? They say it's about 30-35 patients daily average. Any input help! Thanks!

  12. Valid points! It's the 115K at four years of practice in the northeast that seems off to me. Either way, happy to see progress was made regardless!
  13. I still don't think you're making enough.. We graduated at the same time; I'm also in the northeast and made 100K as a new grad in surgery. You still work a decent amount and take call. I switched to urgent care and am at about 125K yearly now. I would've asked for more.. especially with all the bank you are making the cardiologists.
  14. Haha, I like that.. The staff at my urgent care even said that the location I'm at is on it's 2nd year, and that the first year was dead. Are urgent cares more in rural areas any better?
