  1. Do you have a family? Will you have to relocate? Can you postpone the residency until next year? If not, I do not think that would look bad on your resume at all. If you plan on leaving for residency, I would not say anything right now if you need the income. The probation period is there for a reason.
  2. our structure is 15% of collections after salary/overhead/benefits distributed quarterly.
  3. unless he's seeing a bunch of postops in the global period. I would make sure you are seeing new patients in order to be able to hit the bonus numbers.
  4. i did the 20 year or 30 year plan (don't remember which) but i pay 1000k more per month than the minimum and apply it to highest interest loan. That way, I am reducing future interest while still being flexible in case I need extra money for car repair, house repair etc. I had about 88k in loans when i graduated, minimum is like $500 a month, i pay 1500k a month and have paid close to 18k towards loans this year thus far. Still have saved up quite a bit in my bank and maxed my roth IRA. The key here is to make sure you overpay, otherwise, you will definitely overpay in the future with all the interest.
  5. Now that you're at the end, how would you compare yourself today to the other PAs at areas you have moonlighted that did not do a residency? Are you quicker than they are? Pick up the more complex patients?
  6. I've heard of new grad NPs in Iowa making 120k in psych. I'm a PA and I will make less than that 1 year out. I know i applied to a few psych jobs in the midwest but they wanted experience or listing was for a NP.
  7. anyone have luck using other browsers? won't let me download
  8. mine hasn't been working either, i've used safari and firefox.
  9. What if you didn't have benefits through your wife? you would be paying a lot out of pocket for benefits. I would req more money due to no health benefits. 20 patients a day? that is A LOT even for experienced folk. Is this 10 hour days? if so, thats more reasonable. if 8 hour days, that would be hard to do.
  10. 70/hr seems like a great rate, how many patients per shift? per hour? these numbers are critical to know. Chart time? How many vacay days?
  11. Yeah, i think thats a solid offer, i'd take it!
  12. Bonus structure? That offer is similar to the one i had as a new grad in Iowa last year. $54/hour with shift diff and RVU bonus potential. I would ask them to specify the training process. Are you going to be presenting patients for first 2 months? Following around at first? Thats the most important part as a new grad.
  13. is bonus yearly? or quarterly? How many patients per day?
  14. Has anyone completed an ortho residency or know someone that has? I know there aprox 5-6 residencies available and i was wondering what your experience was like. Thanks in advanced.
  15. You're my favorite internet person of the day. You just reminded me I have half eaten ice cream cup in my freezer. Thank you. I work in ortho surgery. I often give work notes. I do not give pain meds >4-6 weeks after surgery. I have yet to write for temporary handicap pass. Our office handles all FMLA, disability stuff etc.
