  1. Hello, new grad here in NYC just got offered a primary care contract with a private practice seeking expert opinions. 1 doc, office manager, 3 nurses, and front desk. Doc is super nice and willing to teach, got really good vibes. A little background about this practice is that it is about 70% Chinese population, which is probably why they want to hire me (bilingual). It is worth noting that I will be the first PA the doc has ever worked with. This is a rough draft that does not cover everything. But I have given them a counter offer and they have agreed to meet up and negotiate. Anything else that I should be concerned with or any thoughts about the counter offer? Any thoughts about bonus structure for second year? Thanks for any advice or comments. Draft offer : Base Salary - 100,000. Incentive bonus of 20% guaranteed second year. (not sure what that means, probably means 20% of salary increase). PTO - 2 weeks vacation first year. 3 wks second year. 4 wks third year. Hours - 5 days/week with 1 weekend day. 9am-5pm. Health insurance - $1000 per month reimburse coverage (no idea what that means). Malpractice - "professional liability coverage." 2 year restrictive covenant within 2 miles of practice. My counter offer : Starting Salary : $105,000.00 Yearly Bonus : 10% of salary. Professional License : Cover DEA license if required. Malpractice : Per occurrence coverage or claims-based with tail coverage. Include as a named provider. CME : 5 days, up to $2000.00 allowance. Sick Leaves : 5 days. 1 Year contract. Questions to discuss : Retirement Plan - 401K Health Care - Currently with wife insurance plan. Professional license second year - practice coverage. National Holidays. Other office duties. On call duties. Second year - Continuous commitment, salary, and bonus structures.
  2. By the way, congrats to all those who got accepted. I am currently staying at The Village at Midtown. They usually have really good summer deal for new students moving in. Its close to the medical centers and 15min from the school. Let me know if anyone want to know more about this place! contact : changzou89@gmail.com
  3. Probably not yet. But they will let you know when they do. Its a private group so unless your invited you won't find it!
  4. The program will start a private FB group so you do not need to make one. Congratulations btw!
