  1. ALCON, So, I have been a practicing emergency medicine PA for 3 years. I also have an extensive military background as a helicopter flight medic and ground medic for 25 years. I have an interview with an established trauma surgery service in July and have no idea what to ask, in terms of beginning salary / hourly wage! Info: (from memory): 3 Nights, Tues, Wed, Thurs.; PTO, CME $, Weekend days (every 4th wknd), sign-on bonus, some surg,- mainly crit care with strong procedures (chest tubes/central lines/ etc...) Current wages in ER: Days with 3-4 nights/mth at ($70.00/hr x avg. 140hrs/mth, with avg. 3500 bonus/yr, no PTO, $2500,00 CME /yr) QUESTION: Based on the info above, and what i make right now in ER, what should I be asking for starting salary/ hourly without surg. or crit care experience? Your expert opinions are greatly appreciated..... Kevin
  2. I am writing to see if anyone on the forum has any information on the legality of opening a specialty practice as an independent contractor. I am interested in starting a hangover clinic in a metro area... cash only, home/hotel visits, IV's, B12, thiamine, etc... on the sidelines. I currently work ER. Any thoughts?
  3. Are you able to utilize the VocRehab program with only 10% service connected disability? I have been accepted to PA school and start in the Fall but only have 12 months left of post 9/11 GI Bill left to cover the two years.
