  1. anewconvert thank you for your input. I found out that being added to my spouse’s insurance will bring his rate up by $2,400 a year. I will tell her this and ask for more compensation in return since she will be saving on not having to pay for my health insurance, I also plan to ask for at least 20 days vacation and address the extra hours outside of 40 hours/week. I appreciate your feedback.
  2. I am in Upstate NY, Hudson Valley Region. She does not have a spouse as office manager, her husband is an anesthesiologist. The restricted covenant clause does say I cannot practice without written consent from the employer within 15 miles for a period of 2 years after and during employment. This appears to be a very common clause in contracts in the area where I live. I am not overly concerned given that I live 20 miles away from the office, and I can always get "written consent". She said I would start off with 45min visits for new patients. But I am not sure what my expectations are regarding volume of patients in the future when I am more established, definitely need to ask. I don't want to be scheduled to be in the office for more than 40 hours per week, I plan to ask for Friday afternoons off on the weeks I am expected to work the Saturday mornings. And I will ask about the licensing as well. At my current job the CME is only $300 and they pay for audio digest subscription, which I feel is really low as well. I am not sure why this is the case.
  3. My fellow PAs I wanted your opinion or experience with contracts. I was offered a position in Outpatient Internal Medicine working for a private physician . I have over two years experience in Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine. The salary is $110,000, no health insurance I would be under my husbands plan, $500 for CME, 3 weeks paid vacation plus holidays, no mention of sick/personal days. The hours are Monday to Friday 8-5 pm this includes 1 hour lunch that is not paid and every third Saturday 8-12. There is 401k plan and malpractice coverage. What are your thoughts? I am concerned on the schedule since it will be more than 40 hours per week on average that I am expected to be in the office. And there is no mention of personal days plus the CME $$ I also feel is very low. Also there is restricted covenant of 15 miles for 2 years after leaving employment which I think is standard for these positions?

  5. I interviewed for a spot on their wait list forJan 2013 matriculation I got a spot on the waitlist but never got called now they sent me acceptance letter for Jan 2014.I will mostly withdraw because I got accepted elsewhere for this summer. At the interview I was told they would have 15 people or so on Jan 2013 waitlist that would be considered first for offered admissions for following year if they didn't get called. I'm assuming that they are busy doing that first.
  6. Just got the email today I've been placed on the alternate list. I interviewed back in October.
  7. I made a facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/147609172053065/
  8. @sad127 were u rejected or put on wait list?
  9. yeah its basically a form that you sign accepting your spot and have to mail/fax within 15 days of the date printed on it. deposit is not bad only $150 and you can either mail a check or pay it online. the details are in the packet.
  10. Hey guys I figured I should start a new thread for those of us who have been accepted to discuss housing and any other questions. Im from NYC so will have to move to Syracuse but I know nothing about the area and have been there only once for the interview. Has anyone sent in their deposit and secured their seat?
  11. @meme2261 I have until the 19th for one program which is refundable until April, not sure about the other one since I haven't received acceptance package in the mail yet.
  12. Waiting since october I have two acceptances need to make a decision soon!
  13. I am not sure I dont think its usually that small. The students were taking finals. The interview was very laid back two people at once and a writing portion. After the interview I anxiuosly was trying to write a good essay which didnt even matter because minutes after I handed it in she came back with the news. Not sure how many spots are left but they have 40 seats in total. My advice is to relax be calm cool and collected. Show confidence and enthusiasm, ask questions and just be yourself. The interview is not intimmidating at all.
