  1. Thank you all for your input. Met with the dermatologist today. He increased the annual stipend to $1500 but did not budge on the hourly rate or productivity bonus. If I take the derm job there wouldn't be much room to increase my earning potential outside of base salary increases of 3% annually. I'm feeling pretty disappointed. I'm planning to offer one last stab at negotiating the derm contract then walk away if nothing changes. Occurrence based malpractice policy.
  2. Thank you! Yes, after the 12 weeks. I will definitely make the clarification btwn claims made and occurrence.
  3. New grad dermatology offer in the Northern Virginia area. Solo MD practice with 4 PAs (1 is leaving and another is leaving in a few months). Only the MD has an MA who brings back pts, scribes and assists with procedures. No Mohs in office. PAs see approximately 15 pts per day at 30 minute intervals - bring pts back to rooms, turnover rooms, perform beta-hcgs without assistance. Location, providers and support staff are great - shadowed with the practice following interview. Offered a 1-year contract for $48/hr, 36 hours/wk, work 8AM - 5 PM (1 hr for lunch flexing every other Friday), no weekends or holidays, no call. Paid bi-weekly. Compensation while training will be $25/hr for the first 4-weeks of employment, increasing to $30 thereafter (no longer than 12 weeks) with a retention bonus after 1-year to compensate for pay-cut during training period. Productivity bonus begins after 1-year of employment: annual bonus of 5% of the aggregate amount in excess of 3x calculated annual salary. PTO - 83.2 hours (2 weeks) covers vacation, sick leave, CME travel; increases to 3 weeks after 1-year Annual stipend - $1,000 covers licensure, CME (to include travel and lodging expenses), uniforms, dues, books. 401k - dollar for dollar matching up to 4% Malpractice insurance - provided but no details written in the contract; verbally told that there is no tail coverage but did not seem to know if policy was claims made vs occurrence. No dental, health, vision. Currently covered under spouse's plan. Restrictions: no moon-lighting, 2-year non-compete with other derm offices within a 20 mile radius. Offered Urgent Care position at $58/hr, ~32-36 hrs/wk to include two Fridays and one-two weekends a month. 2 months training at full pay. Non-training shifts will be from 2 PM -10 PM; working with another PA/NP in house at all times - can work solo after 1 year. Paid time and a half for holidays worked. No call. Salary growth of 3-6% annually plus RVU bonus. PTO - 84 hrs; plus 3 months maternity leave through disability CME $1500 401K - 100% vested after 1 year, 3-6% match after 1 year Profit sharing - 1500 hours (not really sure what this means...need to do some research) Malpractice insurance - occurrence policy. No tail coverage. Health insurance provided. Licensure fees, membership dues covered. I like both practices and need some feedback. I like staying busy, doing procedures and developing relationships with patients. I do no like the UC hours to include shift time, weekends and holidays - spouse works 9AM-5PM and want to have more time together. Derm location is closer to home, less charting, predictable schedule. I want to renegotiate the derm offer to match the hourly compensation of the UC offer - hoping to get at least $53/hr, ask for 20% rather than 5% annual bonus with a goal stipend of $2500. Any tips of advice of any sort would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
