I know this is a long shot but I was just writing to see if anyone has had a similar experience or can offer some insight on my situation. I was just accepted to the school of my choice! Yay! I had a auto SCT in March of 2014. I just started getting my re-vaccinations in January of this year. The school I'm accepted at requires titers within 30 days of acceptance. I had my titers drawn today but my hematologist warned that my level of immunity probably decreased or disappeared. If they do come back negative, I know it's going to take some convincing and consulting with my hematologist and infectious disease specialist in order to receive live vaccinations prior to 2 years post SCT. So, are schools usually sympathetic if I'm trying my darnedest to become immune prior to matriculation? Any help would be fabulous! I'm calling student health first thing in the morning Monday but just wanted to see if anyone could comment or put my mind at ease
I need help making my decision. I have been working as a hospitalist for 14 months at a Manhattan hospital. Primary responsibilities: Medical Admitting PA (sit at a computer looking through recently admitted patient's charts deciding whether or not they need a teaching team vs non teaching team, then giving sign out to the proper team. 12 hour shift- 8 shifts per month). Along with this role, we do ED admissions (12 hour shifts, 5 shifts per month) with an opportunity to do moonlighting ED admissions at a rate of $75/hr (12 hour shift). In February, we have been told that we will be moved to the "floor", havinga "workload" of patients to care for during the day. I have no idea how many patients. Been told the shift will be 10 hours (8a-6p). And with this we will be responsible for doing 2-3 POMAs (pre-op medical assessments). Current Job Deets: 13 required shifts per month Additional opportunity for moonlighting shifts (12 hour shifts) rate: $75/hr 81K/yr NO CME money (they have grand rounds that I can attend in the hospital) 28 days PTO Medical Insurance (for the family) (I pay about $440/month) 401K (I haven't signed up for yet)-bad me! BMT offer at same hospital: Outpatient setting working 4- 10hr shifts with one guarenteed day off per week (about 3 months training) **after about 9 months, may have me rotating through inpatient BMT 3-12 hour shifts, requires 6 months of training 81K/yr (considered a lateral transfer because I have less than 2 years here and not considered a "senior PA" yet) and I've asked twice to have that # raised (they will not) NO CME money 28 days PTO Medical Insurance 401K LGBT/HIV Medicine offer: outpatient In Manhattan/2 days per week in NJ (until they can find someone to be based in NJ) Very small office (I mean very small..it's Manhattan) Not sure if it is 5 or 6 days per week (will clarify that) 80K, and after 6 months of "satisfactory" performance, will raise salary to 85K/yr unlimited sick time plus 2 weeks vacation per year Health insurance (help me figure this one out!): They will pay on my behalf the total amount of benefits paid for a single person, which is currently $11,134.52. I can choose the benefits that I'd like, and they will set up a section 135 pre-tax salary deduction for me to contribute the rest of the cost of premiums. The deductible is put into a Health Savings Account on my behalf (and I am free to contribute to it as well). For my information, the breakdown and totals are pasted below: Benefits for each single employee for 2014: Health insurance premiums are 7898.52 Health insurance deductible is 2000 Dental insurance premiums are 1236 TOTAL: $11,134.52 Cost for a family for 2014: Health insurance premiums are 25045.56 Health insurance deductible is 4000 Dental insurance premiums are 3947.88 TOTAL: $32,993.44 Difference: 21858.92 Which job/offer seems the most reasonable? What else can I negotiate? I've already asked for more $$ for BMT and they said no due to my "lack of years on the job". I haven't negotiated with the LGBT medicine yet. Obviously need to clarify how many days per week and that health insurance... Thanks for your help! Andrea
Hello everyone, I have been working as a hospitalist for 1 year at a Manhattan hospital. I was approached by an attending in BMT that asked how they could go about finding a PA to work in such a specialized area. Well, I threw my name into the hat. I recently interviewed with the head of the department and will go for round 2 of interviews next week. I have a really good feeling about this opportunity and feel that it may lead to an offer soon. Here's the stats on my current position: salary $78K, 28 days PTO, NO CME, NO ANNUAL RAISES, opportunity to moonlight. I have 1 year experience as a hospitalist (with a little experience in hematology/oncology), what would be a reasonable salary offer? I understand I can negotiate (say, if they don't give me the salary that I feel is right, can negotiate for CME money or more PTO, off holidays, etc..) . What should I ask for? This will be my 2nd job out of school. Oh, and this job is a transfer. I would still be working at the same hospital. Thanks for your help! Andrea
