  1. just wanted to give an update here! After much debate their final offer was $50/hour and they are willing to make me a 40 hour position instead of 36. Still seems low to me especially when I have an urgent care interview next week that starts at $63/hour, but they want an answer within 48 hours so I'm leaning towards accepting. I definitely don't want to miss out on this opportunity over an hourly wage since the other benefits seem well worth it but my question is, should I still go to the urgent care interview???
  2. Thanks for the insight, everyone! I am from the Boston area so I know how horrible commuting into the city can be- also why I've been pursuing 12 hour shift positions. I feel much better about this position now, just waiting for a final offer!
  3. Hi All! I recently interviewed for a full time hospitalist position at a major Boston-area hospital. I have been told I would be receiving a formal offer from HR this week and am wondering what I should expect as "reasonable" pay/what I should negotiate for. Some info about the position: -36 hours, (3- 12 hour shifts, including every other weekend for the first year) -pension plan and 401K matching 2% after first year -29 days PTO (inclusive of all holiday, vacation, sick time) -$1000 CME first year to increase to $2000 thereafter (inclusive of all licensing fees) -3 month credentialing process then 8-12 weeks of orientation of with a senior PA/NP (35 PA and NPs on staff currently) -patient load is 6 patients per shift with no more than 1 admission, working 1:1 with attending physician I'm excited about this position as I feel like it will be great experience in a major teaching hospital. I'm a relatively "new grad", I have 1 year of experience now working in outpatient cardiology with my own panel of patients and I make $95k for 40 hours ($45/hour) which was great as a first job but now seems to be extremely low. I did not negotiate at all when accepting this position as I was just so excited to finally have an offer after graduation. I am hoping to advocate for myself more this time around, I'm just not sure what the "going rate" is for inpatient medicine. I'm also pursuing an urgent care position which starts PA's at $63/hour, not sure if these specialties are similar-paying or if I should be happy with an offer in the $50-55/hour range. Any advice is appreciated Thanks! Haley

  5. Glad to hear you're having the same thing, I was getting paranoid! I'm 90% sure I'm going!
  6. Did anyone get an acceptance letter in the mail yet? I'm trying to send in my deposit but professor verity said the instructions were in this mysterious packet I haven't received yet...
  7. Sure! Undergrad from boston university in human physiology Cum GPA: 3.43 Science GPA: 3.43 Gre: 320 2100 hours as a CNA in cardiac surgery
  8. tommyding, I would definitely still apply! Their deadline isn't until January I believe so it's still early enough that it's worth a shot. You've got nothing to lose!
  9. I applied this cycle, haven't heard anything yet!
  10. This has been really helpful guys, thank you! I'm happy to see I'm not the only one ready to rip my hair out with this waiting game. :)
  11. Did anyone else get that email telling you to view your admissions decision online? I tried and it didn't work and then Sharon Verity asked me to call her Tuesday....
  12. Congrats guys! Do you know what phone number called you? I Missed a call from a New York number this morning that I'm thinking may have been them!
