  1. Hey everyone!! Hoping to get some insight on my offer for a position at a Level II trauma center in SoCal. I worked with this group of surgeons as a student so I know it would be an excellent learning environment and tons of good exposure. My time will be split weekly, working in trauma + gen surgery one week and strictly in ICU the next. Training will include running traumas, first assist, various procedures, ICU and vent management, etc. No surgery residents. They currently have 3 NPs and 1 PA and are looking to expand. Base salary at $110k. Hours/call: 40hr/week, leaving promptly at end of shift. No overnight shifts as new grad until myself and SP are comfortable. Contract states that call will be paid "standard on call fees" but does not state exact amount. They did stress that being on call is not likely, esp as a new grad. Benefits: Health insurance, they pay 90% of standard costs. Have to pay for my own dental and vision. ( is this normal?) Malpractice insurance covered- will be sure to ask about tail coverage. Not eligible for 401k plan until 1 full year of employment!! Seems a little odd to me, thoughts? PTO: "employee shall accrue 0.05 hours of PTO for every 1 hour of work performed" which if my math is correct comes out to about 10 days of PTO -_- hoping this is a typo because that's extremely low. The APPs currently work 4 10s a week but will likely move to 3 12s as more APPs are hired so I am not sure how this affects the amount of PTO. I am thinking of asking for 4 weeks PTO to include vacation, sick and CME days. CME: $1500, does not state specific number of days off Overall, I am really happy with the offer as a trauma position has been my dream for a long time! Not so happy with the PTO, but believe they will be willing to work with me! I would greatly appreciate your thoughts!
  2. What are you all’s thoughts on completing a residency that is not ARC accredited?
  3. Those of you who were accepted, are you planning to attend Charles Drew?
  4. For those who interviewed 10/17, have you all heard anything yet?
  5. Thank you Rev Ronin and EMEDPA!! Has anyone ever worked with CompHealth or Staffcare and would like to share their experience?
  6. Hello all, I was recently accepted into PA school :):) and I am already thinking of possible paths to take once I finish school. I really like the idea of traveling all over the country as a practicing PA and gaining experience in a variety of settings. I've heard of a travel nurse and all of the benefits, but is there a such thing as a "travel PA"? I've done some research on this topic and I seem to come across "locum tenens" positions a lot, but is this similar to what a travel nurse does, in terms of working with traveling companies, having a lot of options and negotiation in the contracts, and receiving great benefits, etc.? Is it common for PAs to take only locum tenens positions as their full time source of income throughout the year? What are your thoughts? I honestly just want to learn more and I am open to ANY and ALL feedback! :)
  7. Received an interview invite for Oct 17th as well! Can't wait!
  8. For those with interviews, congrats! When did you all submit the CASPA and supplemental?
  9. No there is no supplemental application. I called to ask last week.
